THIS IS OLD.
Your mission: escape the Edifice without dying.
Sounds simple enough - but you have limited Energy, no healing abilities, and an entire gauntlet of enemies waiting to slaughter you. Have fun!
Edifice is a rougelight; it is not as punishing as a roguelike (although you can fully customize the game's length, difficulty, and hardcority level). Nonetheless, you will die - painfully - from things you could have avoided if you had just two more points in your Mind stat. It's also shorter than the typical roguelike - you can complete each game in about an hour. If, you know, you don't get slaughtered.
The game is something of a hybrid jRPG/roguelike in that you control a four-person party in a dungeon which creates itself every time you load using pre-existing floors. It's also unlike many RPGs in that healing is thrown right out the window; the strategy in the game is to figure out how to take down every encounter quickly and efficiently. With over a hundred and fifty unique enemies, that's not going to be easy...
