DSB

Dungeon Strikes Back (DSB) is a heavily Lua-powered and quite scriptable attempt at a game much like FTL's immortal classic Dungeon Master. At the present time, it is still in development and may have bugs. Please report them if you happen to run across any!

Though the program code itself is original, the graphics and sounds have been appropriated from Dungeon Master (and Chaos Strikes Back), and the game's formulas have been researched using two excellent resources: CSBWin and the DM Encyclopaedia. The default configuration tries to be as close to the way DM did things as possible.

The Chaos Strikes Back dungeon is has been directly converted from the Atari ST version; download the DSB version here. It is still being tested, though it is quite playable. However, DSB is capable of much more than the basic DM engine. Due to the ability of the Lua scripting language to change nearly any aspect of the game engine, dungeon designers are able to create nearly anything they like using its included GUI editor, "Editor Strikes Back."
