Hi folks,

We just released a big update for DemonCrawl that includes a new mastery called Hypnotist, the fierce Scrapper boss, and 15 new items!

(After a lengthy conversion process, DemonCrawl is now running on GameMaker v2.3. This is a requirement for getting our iOS port approved on the App Store - you can read more about the situation here. We plan to re-submit DemonCrawl to Apple's review team in the next couple days.)

Let's take a look at some of the new content in v1.70!


When making a mistake as the Hypnotist, you won't receive damage right away - instead, you'll get a 3-turn status counter, giving you time to either mitigate the attack or brace for impact.

Hypnotist also has the ability to lengthen status effect counters. This pairs well with the delayed damage mechanic, but also has great combo potential with status-based items like Candy or Truthsayer Quill.


Now, help us give a warm welcome to the newest member of DemonCrawl's boss lineup:

Scrapper will load up your inventory with "Junk," a new omen that itself produces more Junk. Things can quickly spiral out of control, putting you in danger of taking 1 damage every turn if you can't free up some space!


Finally, we have added 15 new items to DemonCrawl, many of which were directly inspired by suggestions we received on Discord!

Among these items are two complete sets of armor, Bubble and Vampiric Armor. Here's a closer look at the former:

As you can imagine, Waterboy is pretty stoked about this...
