Game inspired by paper RPG tiled game "Death Maze" or "Labirynt Smierci" released in Poland long time ago. Game will feature random generated maze (while you playing), monsters, treasures, etc. Aim of the game is to find Dark Gates and kill Unnamed in order to destory Dark Gates.
I'm thrilled to announce a release 0.1 alpha of Dark Gates. There is a dedicated website http://darkgates.dfourgames.com as well. Please bare in mind that is a first release and this is alpha stage. Lot's of stuff missing and game may have some bugs. Have fun.
Linux 32bit and Win builds available.

Just goes to show how much can be done with Python and Pygame, props.

Thanks for comment. So far I'm trying to keep to original rules as much as possible. This will be verified later as fighting system will be added. Fight will be turn based and by far looks ok. Time will tell. I will post more video as game progress.
As for heroes in party, this is based on original rules. In original there was 3 heroes and 3 apprentices, so I already tried to simplified. We will see how it goes.
As for a paying or not paying, as said before I still didn't decided what to do and I keep my mind open with feet on the ground. Other thing is that not everyone have to like it, so i'm not surprised.
Video shows apart from menu a concept or 'tech demo'(maybe a bit to big term) for map generation. Can't really see myself doing pre-order already :D

The gameplay looks fine in what you posted on the website. I'm just unconvinced that I'd pay money to play this game. iPhone or Facebook come to mind as possibilities, though.
Is there a reason to have a six-member party instead of just a single hero? I'd be very interested to see how the fighting works without becoming difficult to manage.

Looks great. Looking forward to see fight.

I do know that. My code is nothing complicated or revolutionary, but if I decide to go commercial, giving away code is rather missing a point.

I'm not very intimately familiar with the subject, but I've been led to believe that disassembling python bytecode is trivial. So I hope your game libraries are coded with C++ or something if you want to actually keep the code closed.

Thanks for comments. As I already said no source code will be available for now. I didn't decided yet what i will do (open-source, closed-source or commercial). Soon website will be available with info and videos of the game. Game is still largely incomplete but there is enough to get the idea.

Emphasis on "looking" good. :)
How about a way to download the game and/or the source files?
