Grab your weapon of choice, polish your Rogue senses, and get ready to be thrown into the dark and oppressing dungeons of Claustrophobia! Experience deep character development, fast-paced tactical combat, and mountains of epic loot. Here begins a roguelike quest for glory, slaughter, and anything shiny!

Claustrophobia: The Downward Struggle is a Tactical RPG Roguelike, most heavily inspired by the combination of procedural gear and enemy generation found in games such as Diablo and Torchlight, with traditional Roguelike features found in games such as NetHack and Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup. Gameplay revolves around a classless, stat and gear-based progression system, procedural dungeon exploration, and unforgiving tactical combat.

Please release the update here as well. I already reached legendary stuff and now the game crashes after beating the boss.

Overall a great improvement on the previous version. It plays very well, very hard but also very rewarding. Made it all to depth 3 and died to dracula. Awesome!

If you purchased through Desura, simply go to your Desura Collection (http://www.desura.com/collection), or in the Desura Client, and click Claustrophobia Keys for your Steam Key. You can also update the Desura build for the latest version.

After fifteen minutes with the Early Access version--which is exactly how long it took me to die--I have to ask: is this the same game? Man, you weren't kidding when you said you wanted to re-envision/polish/improve the previous version.

Claustrophobia's long been a favorite of mine, and this new incarnation just oozes professionalism. It really feels like something I'd buy off the shelf and not a game that was (originally) made in someone's spare time.

Thanks for being receptive of our suggestions in the past, as well as for the tech support you've supplied for me and others with WMP/XNA issues. Your dedication, patience and talent have produced something special here. C:TDS deserves high praise and lots of sales. I wish you the best with the EA release!

So it turns out there's a bug in Claustrophobia's skill damage calculations. Rather a large one. Which finally explains rat balance. Oct 15 2014, 12:11pm
