A Wizard's Lizard - When All Else Fails... (Edit)

Raga isn't just a walking, talking lizard with a cute forked tongue and a short sword. When the chips are down, he'll throw down a powerful totem to overwhelm his enemies. The forces of Death's army versus a tiny, talking lizard really does seem like a lopsided fight, doesn't it? You almost feel sorry for Death.

A Wizard's Lizard is a new game from indie developer Lost Decade Games (lostdecadegames.com), which stars Raga, a cute little lizard who was magically given the ability to walk and talk by his owner, a kindly wizard. The wizard finds a way to cheat death with an immortality potion and Death himself is none too keen on that. So Death captures the wizard and it's up to his highly intelligent pet to save him!

A Wizard's Lizard is an incredibly challenging roguelike available on Steam and from its main web site. New content and some new optimization and game balance changes are being planned, so consider this my recommendation to give it a look! If you enjoy games like The Binding of Isaac, check this adorable little guy out as well.

Okay, so this idea spawned a few days ago when I was guest starring on :iconsolarknight99: as he was playing this wonderful game. Being new to the game, it was easy for him to forget all of his options and get overwhelmed. This brought about the catch phrase for his (and my) stream chat: "USE YOUR TOTEMS!" 

This isn't just a picture, it's also sound advice!

UPDATED: Added a couple of extra layer effects I forgot to put in the final version previously.

I sometimes remember the Hive totem just because it's OP, but otherwise?.... I often go entire runs without using totems... and yes, in those runs I don't even get to the sewers.

Funny. That's what you chose the little guy to be used as the lizard. ( = l
