EDIT:

Okay, I need to put a bit more explanation here. I was in contact with EQG about this for awhile, but it appears some information was forgotten. First thing you need to know is that I'm the Project Leader and current Lead Programmer, and the rest of our team consists of Punky Pie [link], who made the sprites, and [link] , who made the music in the first real dungeon. We have been trying to find a more competent programmer to replace me for sometime, and part of this post was originally supposed to be asking for assistance to expand our team. Anyway, besides programmers we are also looking for level designers and testers at the moment. I really don't know much about game development at all, the only reason I'm lead is because I was the one who came up with the idea and I had enough experience in Flash to pullout something and collect a few other people. If you are interested in joining the team send an email to me at roboiguana (@) gmail.com .

Anyway, you can look at more of the developmental history of this game by looking through my gallery and my scrapbook, and this video explains some more stuff about the game. [link] Please read the description of it too. Also, this doc explains a lot [link] and it was supposed to be featured in a Lyra's list, but I don't think it was.

I will try to reply to all the comments.

Which dungeon was this?

how do you get spells?

If you already have them, but they aren't selected, press I. If you lack any spells, kill the miniboss, which is a timberwolf, and you will find the spell soon enough. In dungeon 0 it's in a chest, in dungeon 1 it's in a tablet, press c in front of either one.

Well there isn't any spell books, in dungeon 0 there is a chest in the same room, in dungeon 1 there is a stone tablet in the next room.

I love it, and can't wait to see the next updates.

Have you considered migrating to html5/canvas/javascript? better platform in my opinion.

Also, looking for helpers?

Yes, I am looking for helpers. I can code in Java as well and I think I used a much less powerful engine in HTML for a few games, but otherwise AS2 is all I can do. The development of the game might still be early enough to port it to another platform, I want it to be in the very least one that can be embedded online.

You might want to consider Unity if you can get access to it. The language is similar, but it's got a lot less hidden overhead. Like, it'll run just about any given app faster than Flash would.

It probably would've supplanted Flash by now if their OS support wasn't complete crap.

I downloaded Unity on another computer of mine, but I never figured out how to use it. I still get letters from them. I should probably get around to doing that.
