"That is not dead which can eternal lie because in the strange aeons even death may die" - HP Lovecraft

To wake up one day in an unfamiliar place, surrounded by unknown perils is one of the most common nightmares. Unfortunately for the protagonist of our story is just reality. Lying on the cold floor wakes up one morning .. Or is it night?, This case is that the most absolute darkness around him, while in the distance are heard terrible cries that seem to be human. Is this an explanation? Of course not, though the character has a strange idea in my head ... Perhaps in the depths of this terrible place is the explanation for this nightmare to life ... Will you come?

PURPOSE OF THE GAME: The ultimate goal of this roguelike is none other than reaching down the stairs to the seventh dungeon, while fighting for the survival of our character ...Although no one says this will be easy, as hordes of terrifying creatures and hundreds of traps await you.
