Dungeons of Dredmor

So I want to dedicate this thread to a new addition to the steam store, an indie game called "Dungeons of Dredmor" made by GasLamp Games.

Pretty much what you do here, is create a character with a set of 7 traits/skills/whatever you want to call 'em. You're thrown a randomly generated dungeon to get stronger, progress deeper and eventually defeat the evil Lord Dredmor (Hopefully). This game has craploads of different loot, playstyles, monsters. Lots of nods to other video games and general internet pop culture - Nerdvana.

It's a, so called, rogue game. These tend to be pretty hard, one example would be Desktop Dungeons (If you haven't tried it, download here). I'd say this game does really well. In most rogue (maybe all?) games you only get one life, if you screw up, you gotta start over. They're pretty unforgiving. And I'm sure this is how this game should be played too, though they have an option to turn off permadeath.

Here's a first impression from Total Biscuit/Cynical Brit. If you're into that kinda stuff.

Anyway, have you played it yet? This game is most fun I've had in a while, and when the price is so low, you shouldn't pass up.
