Hey hey hey!
Here’s a little info about myself and my current project!

I started teaching myself programming in pico8 during the Fall of 2020. I’ve been having fun learning more and more. I’ve been working on my first game that I’ve made public. During recent development, I ran out of code space with updates still remaining. I eventually found the LOVE Engine. It runs LUA code and it also has no code limitations. I’m currently working on porting ‘The Demon Within’ from Pico8 to the Love Engine. From there I'll add a few last features then I'll distribute the game to sites like Kongregate, Humble Bundle, Itch.io and Game Jolt! Stick around for more updates on ‘The Demon Within’!

Welcome to the demon's lair, his dwelling. How did you get here? How will you escape? CAN you escape? Try your best, it's easier said then done...

Enjoy this classic-styled rogue-like!

Game Content

• 34 Different Items
• 7 Item Types
• A Grim, Dark Little Story
• Many Challenging Floors
• 10 Different Enemies

Hey all, I'm back at it again! I put every critical feature I could fit into this cart.

Currently using 8192/8192 tokens.

There were features I had planned to put into this to make it more polished, but I ran out of space for those features even after token optimization. The following updates will be ported over to the LOVE engine and the game will be dispersed on Itch.io, Game Jolt, Humble Bundle and Kongregate:

Planned Updates

• Add Floor Traps
• Have Music Play Seamlessly Between Floor Transitions
• Add Leaderboard API Using The Overall Score Stat
• Possibly Adding Several More Enemies

NPC’s

There are npc's in the game. Bump into them to talk with them!

Overall Score System

A newly added feature. Simply put, it will either raise or lower your score counter based on
certain feats (i.e. striking enemies and evading enemies, etc.)
and certain mistakes (i.e. receiving enemy strikes, etc.)

Interactable Objects

Most objects that aren't the wall are interactable! Find out what they all do!

Game Strategy

This game is challenging and you may find yourself overwhelmed in the early game. There is a way around this! Try to look for the next floors' stairs first. then hunt down chests. If you run into a lot of enemies, you'll have a clear path of escape if you need it!

Sometimes you will run into a situation where you need to attack first. if you run across some objects on the floors. Bump into them to burn a turn so you can attack first!

Additional Info

there are plenty of secrets to uncover and a grim story to be told! Have fun!

If you're proud of your end game stats then post a screenshot or share your overall score in the comments!

Most sounds and all the music done by the wonderful @Gruber. He's an amazingly talented musician!
Lastly, a big, big, big credit to @Krystman for his help thru his porklike tutorial. And his even further help from him one-on-one in his discord server. He's a great teacher and it really shows.
All character, npc and enemy sprite design & animation is all original artwork done by me.

As this game is still in Beta, I’d really appreciate feedback and criticism. I want this game to be as good as it can be.

0.1.0 Beta is here, so what’s next? Well I’m going to finish up the sound design. Also add a couple of changes stemming from beta testers' suggestions. then I’ll have some porklike play testers give me some feedback. From there I’ll rollout any issues they might find. After that I’m going to sell the finished version for $5 on maybe itch.io. I’m very happy with how it’s turning out! It’s almost done!

Helpful gameplay info:
Bump into blue and purple objects to interact with them. If it doesn’t move, it’s not an enemy.
