Roguebard :

Three new songs available from Namfoodle bard. They were done for falloworld, a steampunk roguelike in development. They’re nice dungeon background tunes, either melancholic or threatening.

Pyromancer :

Porting pyromancer’s items to the cave’s system was quite long and required a lot of refactoring. But now it’s done. All existing spells now use the generic Item class and I got rid of the hardcoded spell_fireball.cpp file.

Creatures still require a lot of work. At least, pyromancer uses only the generic Creature class (where as the cave and treeBurner still have one class per creature as in the original pyromancer 7DRL), but it requires more work and an external creatures.cfg file. As items, creatures will rely on a generic class and be specialized through behaviors and skills (behaviors are for creatures what features are for items).

From the end user side, the new visuals apart, there are 2 new creatures and more powerups, as seen on those screenshots :In fact, the game is so hard with the new creatures that I keep adding new powers to the player to try and balance difficulty. I still have 2 weeks to make the game winnable (for non hardcore players)…
