Providing you remember to add your screenshot back to the thread before the deadline. :P

EDIT: Oh, it is there. For some reason it's not loading. :? Gah, your new score just highlights why I should have made this score based. ;-;

You know, the reason I haven't posted any was because I never managed to beat your time :P usually a successful run takes me about 10 minutes and I think my shortest one was about 7.

Though to be fair, I'm not really trying for the prize as I'm mostly playing with the tier 2 and 3 characters anyway :P

Did I start a trend, or has this "promoting an indie game through offering other indie games as prizes" been done here before?

Anyway, I'll definitely look into this challenge :D

Have to admit, you did inspire me. I have a further 2 bundles to offer in the future but most of the Loungers already have it so I'll have to think of something to get the Defconers interested. Kinda wish I'd bought a Minecraft gift code or two before they went beta.

Haven't even managed to win this yet. I get to the boss leveled up but I always fail... Still, thanks for making me discover this game, it's simple and fun ! :)

Pretty sure the poison + fireball + random square reveal + no health but extra mana regen glyphs are the key combo to this. That combo should allow you to take on the boss pretty much straight away.

Chances of those appearing all in one Normal Dungeon? Very very small it seems...
Whoever you vote for, the government wins.

Joining up for Taurog as a Human Thief is pretty cool too, you can rack up damage points rapidly by transforming runes and therefore also earning piety. You can have from 100 to 150 damage by the time you're nearing the boss !

Tikki Tooki + WEYTWUT. 10 Piety each time you do it and you only need to do it 6 times to get the ability to completely cockblock monster healing with your physical attacks.

Woooooo! I win!

Thank you for holding this competition and offering an awesome prize. You know I'm already downloading the hell out of this. And I already have Braid.



Incidentally, my strategy was: Worship Binlor Ironshield, find ENDISWAL, kill and mine until I hit 80 piety, grab BURNDAYRAZ along the way and convert everything else, use the Heroics boon to jump straight to level 10 (usually from 4) and pray I have enough MP to fireball the boss to death, resistance penalties be damned. It was a lot easier when there weren't new glyphs or golems to screw everything up.
