Description

Ambience is a weather-warping, dungeon-crawling rogue-lite that revolves around the concept of "Ambience" - which manifests itself as the weather of every Environment and the personality of every Being. In Ambience, you're fleeing from a prison established by the brilliant scientist Foss and guarded by his Henchmen. As you progress, you'll make new allies, find out more about Foss's true aims... and more often than not, simply focus on survival.

History

The origins of Ambience date back to 2006, when developer Rhombus Ragmuffin first started game development. His first game was a basic dungeon crawler which involved navigating a yellow smiley face through a maze while avoiding grey bouncing volleyballs. Now, ten years later, "Ambience" combines new and intriguing elements with the excitement of the roguelite genre to finally bring a decade-old dream to life.

Features

  • Strategic, turn-based gameplay in procedurally-generated dungeons.
  • A host of items, weapons, and customizable stat distributions.
  • Two game modes, Story Mode and Survival Mode, enable a wide variety of gameplay.
  • A compelling story, memorable characters, and an original soundtrack.
  • An automatic saving system adds the roguelike touch by ensuring every decision matters.
