This game is programmed by me and myself alone (since 2007), however I have asked a lot of my friends to help with various parts of the game, like art, story and game concepts, and the game would not have as much potential without them. Please see the credits listing in-game. :)

One spell has been added, but not documented/officially added. Press ' followed quickly by ; to cast flame wave. You can use up/down arrows to control it.
(' is button 4, most spells will start with it-- look for the halo effect. ; is button 5.)
Notice: there aint no casting animation yet. Basically because I'm too lazy and suck at posing. Imagine it, please! Also, the flame will have red glowing orbs around them and the caster will have more effects, like lightning around him/her on the ground, etc. (all customisable though.) Spells have no collision detection yet, but I hope that I can have bits for spells, e.g. "BURNBIT" -- indicates whether colliding with this spell activates a monsters "FLAMEBIT"-- the ability to catch alight. Things like that.. are still being prepared. So hold tight! Enjoy! (If you don't mind the DL size!)

A damn impressive project. I wish you wouldn't collapse so many things into your namespaces with star imports, and I wish you would clean up your top level directory so it only had your main file in it, but those are minor minor qualms. I'm going to have to put in some time when I get a chance and play through this thoroughly.

Since the last comment was two years ago, I thought I might liven up this party.
