This is going to be a short for a build post, and also a bit of a weird build post, bear with me.
* The 6/25 builds have been added to the usual download links. However, the 5/3 builds have been left up as well. The dates are clearly marked in the file names, it should be easy to grab the right ones. (This is a bit of a change from my original plan of making a separate download link that I discussed in the forums, sorry for the confusion.)
* This is because I have unexpectedly been called out of town for a few days, and will not be here to address any bugs, even very very bad ones, that may be present in the 6/25 build. If you run into problems, you can always re-download 5/3 and play that until I return and can fix such bugs.
* I need to leave for the airport very soon, so unfortunately I can’t really say much else here. That’s okay: when I return, and when I fix any bugs that have come up, I will do a more “formal” release of the build, including my usual posts on RogueBasin, Twitter, etc, and a more in-depth discussion of what’s new in the build here. However, I *did* update the changelog included with the builds, so you can read all about there right now if you like.
* This is a pretty significant balance change for Demon, similar in scope to the addition of currency a few months back. Like with currency, I expect that despite my best efforts, some things will end up out of whack and need adjustment. This means two things: 1) Don’t get attached to the current versions of anything yet, 2) Don’t assume anything is “intended” to be the way it is, especially if it seems crazy over or underpowered.
Apologies again for the odd circumstances surrounding this release. It was either this weirdness or put off releasing until I got back late next week. I decided to take a bit of a risk and go ahead and release oddly so you folks can try out the Relic Upgrades a bit sooner. Thank you for understanding, and good luck in the tower!
