The Kerkerkruip team is happy to announce the release of Kerkerkruip 9, by far the most extensive update of the game ever made. Kerkerkruip is a short-form roguelike in the interactive fiction medium, featuring meaningful tactical and strategic depth, innovative game play, zero grinding, and a sword & sorcery setting that does not rehash tired clichés.
With over 700 commits to the code repository, the changes made in Kerkerkruip 9 are far too numerous to mention here. But the highlights are:
We are now also offering stand-alone installers for specific operating systems. While it’s still possible to download the game file and run it in your favourite Glulx interpreter, there are also installers for Windows and Debian/Ubuntu. We will be supporting OS X in the near future. Go to the downloads page immediately!
Kerkerkruip is presented to you by the Kerkerkruip team: Victor Gijsbers, Mike Ciul, Dannii Willis, Erik Temple and Remko van der Pluijm. We hope you enjoy the new version. If you’ve got any comments, or if you’d like to contribute to this free software project, please go the website for details and contact us!
Is it possible to prevent the left (inventory) and right (status) panels from scrolling up every time I make a move in panels view? I have to press space to remove the -More- before I can type a move again. If this is doable with the Gargoyle’s .ini file, let me know.
Hm, that sounds very irritating. At what screen size are you playing the game?
I play in a maximized window, but I increased Gargoyle’s font sizes in the ini file: propsize is 30 and monosize is 28. Also the ability to resize the panel columns with the mouse pointer would be excellent.
Unfortunately these are the limitations of Gargoyle and out of our control. We have reported the issue of the MORE prompts taking preference over player input, but development on Gargoyle has basically stalled.
Same thing happens in Windows Glulxe too. That is not the same as Gargoyle, right? I’ll try also on a Mac with Spatterlight to see what happens.
