The Maze Builders of Kreik have tasked you with seeing how deadly their latest labyrinth is.

Content Warning: Descriptions of gruesome deaths. No sex or swearing.

Controls

This is a multiple choice text roguelike. In addition to clicking an option you can use numbered keys (1-9) to select options or use Space / Return keys to select the 1st option.

What to Expect

  • Can be completed in less than half an hour.
  • Does not save progress.
  • 33 rooms to discover - if you restart you will only visit fresh rooms until it runs out.
  • Ask the guard at the entrance of the labyrinth if you want some tips.

This uses a lot of content from a previously shelved project called Kobold Dungeon Tester, though all of the rooms have been re-written to support the new rules and story in this adventure.

A good and fun little game. Hope to see more!

This was such a cool game to play! I like that there were some rooms that you could pass through without luck and some that needed luck. This was very calming to play. Thank you for making this!  <3<3<3

You left the labyrinth with:

4 stamina points.

12 gold coins.

A golden apple.

An all-labyrinths VIP pass.

A lucky glass eye.

A blue-shifted falconsloth feather.

A chip off the old block.

And was enlightened 6 times.

Thank you for playing.

Awesome upgrade to Kobold Dungeon Tester! Because I'd feel wrong without making at least one annoyingly pedantic note, there's a typo in the library room with the Get Rich Quick book (it says "togeher" in one spot when it should say "together").

Seriously though, I love this

This is delightful! And of course I forgot to copy my accomplishments before closing the tab.

I did grab a chip off the old block and was quite pleased to have found the Name of the Wind, though.

You left the labyrinth with:

5 stamina points.
20 gold coins.
(5 of them are pixelated.)
...
And was *** 9 times.

really curious about what'd have happened if I'd gone into the click room again. the mechanic of not revisiting rooms is quite nice, respectful of player time!
