Here’s A Thing: Delver

Inspired by the livestream of Markus "Notch" Persson creating his Ludum Dare 48 entry Prelude Of The Chambered, Delver is a firstperson 3D Rogue-like with a nice line in ambient lighting and some disarmingly charming monsters.

Dungeons are randomly generated, and there are already several player classes (rogue, warrior and wizard) to choose from along with a selection of weapons ranging from short range daggers to long range (but ammo-limited) "fire wands".

It's still in the early stages of development, with creator Priority Interrupt in the process of balancing character levelling, loot drops, combat and difficulty, but even at this early stage it's an appealing prospect and already looks decidedly handsome.

You can download the latest build to try for yourself, while the game's progress can be followed on the TigSource forum.
