"You enter the Crypt of Darne and you're looking for a specific gem. Will you survive?"

This is a "roguelike" I began making for Games Made Quick 2017 gamejam, however I wanted to finish it so I continued working on it.  I wouldn't really call it a roguelike though, it's more a simple dungeon delving game with procedurally generated dungeons and RPG elements. 

As of version 1.0.0, the game is now pretty much done, but this is one of these games I will keep updating whenever I feel like it and I will try to add more fun and cool stuff to it.

I hope someone likes it, and I will make a nice old-school-ish manual to go with it in future, where I detail more of the lore of the game and have more detailed insight into the player races, enemies and classes. I will also try to add pictures.

I will try to make Linux and Mac version of the game when I feel like the game is ready for that.

If you manage to finish the game, have nice high score to show off, come across a bug or anything like that, let me know here on itch.io. You can find links for that down below.


  • Arrow keys/keypad to move, home, pgup, pgdown, end keys to walk diagonally.
  • H keys opens help screen.
  • I opens inventory for using items
  • D opens inventory for dropping items
  • G picks up items
  • Z climbs down stairs
  • No mouse needed, however, you can use it to point objects and see what they are. The name of the object will appear near the HP bar.

The readme.txt file has more info about keys and some basic stuff.  Can't be played in fullscreen, however if you by some magic trickery manage to make the game fullscreen, it will make your Windows taskbar act weird.

You can donate me some money if you wish. I won't lie, that money will most likely go to buying more games. :D However, you don't have to, the game is completely freeware, so feel free to share it to your friends!

BIG THANKS to my fiancee Jenny a.k.a tecsiederp for supporting me and making the background art for main menu and banner, my friends and family who cheered me on, the people on my Games&Dev discord server, r/roguelikedev (both subreddit and the discord server that can be found from there), and the super great tutorial that helped me to make this thing on roguebasin.com.

I hope you enjoy playing Crypt of Darne and I would love to hear feedback, ideas, critique, whatever. <3
