Description

Rift Wizard is a tough as nails shortform roguelike with a 90s retro fantasy aesthetic and a deep spell system. Rift Wizard focuses on high stakes turn based combat, and complex character building. Advanced procedural generation systems throw the player into a series of unique and challenging encounters each run. Players will summon dragons, rain down meteors, stop time, and more. Though a vast library of powerful magic is available, wise and careful planning is required to utilize it effectively. Only after deeply and truly mastering magic can a wizard hope to succeed.

History

Rift Wizard began as an Ascii prototype developed by Dylan White, with the goal of creating roguelike gameplay with high depth and low randomness. The prototype was never released to the public, but after some very positive responses to the ascii gameplay, a mutual friend introduced Dylan to K.Hoops, and the game grew into its current form.

About Dylan White Games

Boilerplate
I am an independant game developer and the author of upcoming PC roguelike Rift Wizard. I believe that the most important aspect of a game is the thought process it inspires in its player. I believe games have the ability to both grow and shrink the human mind, I aim for the former. I strive to create games that inspire creativity, intelligence, and awe.
