Just found this today. Think I picked it up on STEAM the other day for free (or next to nothing). Holy cow, though, it's really addictive. It's one of those sneak-up-on-you kinda games where you get into it, then look up at the clock and four hours have passed.

I haven't figured out if there's a way to save it. Seems like the game style would suggest it's not that kinda game. Only managed to make it to level two, though...Need to figure out how to heal myself better.

minecraft in 2D (no up and down) with a bit more aggressive mobs.. or it was. I haven't played in a couple months.. its out of beta now? I may have to revisit to see changes.. the man is machine with updates.. and most are game changing. How are the spiders now? they where kinda brutal earlier ( not to kill, but they are like the Creep in Starcraft, grow if you don't stop um.. ) I did like how the different characters have different ways of playing (sorta).. the chick was my favorite. And the hounds!!!

so how many days ya make it so far?

oh better food is better heals.. (honey ham! for the win)

WHOA!!!

This game is beyond addictive. I had to RIP myself away from it just to do Matt Chat.

This is definitely one of those "WTF" games that you just have no idea until you play it. Give it fifteen minutes and I guarantee you'll be hooked.

Looks very interesting.. kind of kitsch. I may give it a look even over my complete aversion to the Steam platform.

Thanks for posting about this

Thanks for posting about this little gem! I don't know how I missed this one, I like to keep my ear to the ground when it comes to indie stuff.
I still need to put some time in with it, but so far I am loving the sense of discovery and figuring out what to do.
