Hi Gamers! I'm a solo indie game developer creating a turn based, roguelike dungeon crawler called Castle Grimhold. I've been building this game entirely on my own and finally have it ready for beta testing! I would sincerely appreciate any and all help! I would also value feedback on gameplay loop and anything that would make the game better. I'm building this in my free time, but I'm working hard on this during that limited time between work and family.

The game has deep character customization, lots of skills and spells, monsters to slay and loot to collect! I wanted something I can play offline, while still having deep gameplay. I've been inspired by roguelikes, mmo's and many, many rpg's.

Thank you so much for taking the opportunity to check out my game!

Castle Grimhold is now live! Google Play Store Link Here

First, thank you very much for all the testing help! I sincerely appreciate everyone who was part of that!

My game is a roguelike, dungeon crawler, turn based rpg. I've tried to make it quick/easy to pick up and play, but having character and battle depth. The game is fully playable offline, which is a feature I really wanted for those times I have no internet/cell connection.

I've kept the ad's and in app purchases to a minimum and nothing is gated. The game is fully playable without ever having to make a purchase. I want people to enjoy the game for the gameplay it has.

There are a lot of features and enhancements I have planned and I hope people enjoy it!

If you like turn based rpg's, roguelikes, dungeon crawlers, character building, item looting then I would really appreciate you giving my game a try!
