Histoire

Initialement, MidBoss a été développé en trois jours pour le concours Ludum Dare # 25, conçu autour du thème «You Are the Villain». Les gens l'on trouvé amusant, et par la suite, il a été nettoyé, amélioré et publié en Mars 2013. La version actuelle de MidBoss est une révision complète, de la base de l'ancien jeu (dénommé MidBoss Classic) avec de nouveaux graphismes, une meilleure interface, plus de capacités, plus d'informations, et une expérience globalement et massivement améliorée.

Description [en]

MidBoss is a video game about possessing your defeated enemies in order to become stronger. You play the weakest of the dungeon denizens, an imp with no ability other than possessing other creatures. Your goal is to defeat and possess increasingly stronger creatures, unlocking their abilities for yourself and becoming stronger as you go along, and eventually defeat and become the dungeon's ultimate endboss.

History

Initially, MidBoss was developed over the course of three days for Ludum Dare #25, designed around the theme 'You Are the Villain'. People thought it was fun, and so afterwards it was cleaned up and developed further and released in March 2013. The current version of MidBoss is a complete, from the ground up overhaul of the old game (referred to as MidBoss Classic) with new graphics, better interface, more abilities, more information, and a generally massively improved experience.
