Fervent Descent (Working Title) Devlog

Alpha test build:

Fervent Descent takes the very basic core of a turn-based roguelike and merges it with a speed game.

Take control of one of a handful of unique characters and try to make your way down into the ruins of an old cursed castle. Collect treasure, defeat monsters, and upgrade your abilities along the way. Quickly clearing each single-screen stage and not taking damage grant bonus points which can be used to purchase further upgrades. Honing your skill in the earlier stages will pay dividends as you come face-to-face with some of the tougher monsters and bosses deeper within the ruins.

Currently the game is in a working alpha state with 10 floors, 2 boss fights, 5 monsters, and one player class.
