i got a black screen when making a new game

Please, make win32 version of your game

This was very fun! I enjoyed the art style and the music in the game and found it very challenging to play but still enjoyable :D 

I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)

Glad you liked the game. And thanks for the invitation. Unfortunately, I can't participate with Undervault because it was originally released before 2019, but I already submitted my other game - The Farlanders.

Okay, that's great! :D

My review of this game:

This game is fun. Like all games, when you first get into it, it's very hard, but as you traverse more rooms, you figure out the game more and more. However, it's still very hard. I found it extremely challenging to balance health and hunger. Weapon durability ran out very slow, and I would find weapons every so often, so I wasn't in trouble of fighting without a weapon. The "room randomization" mechanic was very well implemented and didn't feel tacked on. My favorite part about the room randomization is how you can influence it. I felt myself crossing my fingers, hoping for the spinner to land on the room I chose. The battle system also felt very fair, and I won every battle (Although maybe that's because I used all my skill points on strength). And finally, I never really got far in the skill point part, as I died on floor 4 or 5, but I thought it was pretty good. In all, I give this game a 10/10. Absolutely great work! Keep it up!
