    • Mark Honnor, another indie developer and artist, for greatly enhancing the environmental art.
    • Juan Camacho, for creating awesome illustrations for the character classes and one of the versions of the trailer, which have been very helpful to spread the word about the game.

  • To my wife, for bearing with me working long nights to get the game to where it is now.

We started giving a quick explanation of what a roguelike is and what is Ananias. Then we went through the first year of development of the game, watched a gameplay video of the original 7DRL and went thru the first crowdfunding campaigns.

Then, in an explosive ceremony, the “Publish” button was clicked,  thus making the game available for people in Steam.

We continued checking the remaining two years of development, and then proceed to play the game with the audience’s character class of choice: The Shepherd. Along the party, other players shared the tombstones of their characters

Some of the announcements that were made:

  • The release on iOS which should happen next week.
  • Some hints about the Premium Edition, which will come packed in two 1.44MB disks and boxed with manual and some trinkets.
