A downloadable roguelike for Windows

Caves of the mad Lich (CML for short) is a classical  roguelike, taking inspiration from games such as Nethack and POWDER. As of this time, the game is still in early  development,  meaning it may lack content, and bugs might be found. Feel free to leave a comment about what you think, any feedback is appreciated. 

The tileset used  in versions prior to 0.04 was not made by me, all credits go to zilk,   it can be found here:

*WARNING A BUG HAS BEEN FOUND THAT MAY MESS UP SAVES, PLEASE READ*

A bug has been found on version 0.04 that causes the game to generate invalid save files when saving for the first time . I attempted to fix the bug, however it seems to only occur on the release version, not occurring on the development environment. This leads me to suspect that the issue is not caused by the game code. 

To fix the bug perform the following steps

1 - Start a new game

2 - Immediately save and quit

3 - If the game goes back to the main menu, start a new game, if it shuts off, you're safe play and to save.

4 - Now the saves should work properly


Any help on fixing the issue is appreciated.


Controls

arrow keys or numpad - move*

The rest of the keybindings can be found by pressing "INSERT" in game.

*You can only move diagonally with the numpad keys


Mouse Support

Hovering over an object in the FOV while using the look command will display it's name. Selecting targets is also done with the mouse, l-click to accept, r-click or  "ESC" to cancel.


Music

By default the games bgm is enabled,  to disabled it, press 'ESC' in game and go to settings, there you will be able to turn it off, to apply the changes, you must exit the game and reload the save.


SFX

Like music, the sound effects in the game can be turned off in the settings


Feel free to leave a comment or to report any bugs you may have found, any feedback is greatly appreciated.
