Development updatesPosted by Logophil Sat, January 30, 2016 00:40:12
Version 1.2.0 is now available at itch.io!

The most visible changes are:
1) revamped enemy data and turn structure make for faster and smoother movement
2) new options: a player direction indicator and the option to turn off the delay before enemy movement. Turning delay off makes for a more traditional roguelike experience with simultaneous-looking turns.
3) floor tiles made brighter, allowing player and enemies to stand out more
4) General UI improvements
