(FINISHED) Join the dungeon-crawling Giveaway Adventure in Steam Dungeons! [70+ GAs]
All of us like playing games, and all of us like winning games. So, how about playing a game and winning games while playing?
Game of sWords (now Steam Dungeons) was made specially for SteamGifts a little bit over 2 years ago and has gone a long way since then! A long time has passed since the last event, and there are tons of changes this time as well, including great variety of interactable objects, characters, improvements in balance and design - overall, the dungeons got even bigger and diverse! Steam Dungeons consists of quests (SG events) which start periodically: in each quest you have to explore huge dungeons while upgrading your hero, fighting monsters, finding new items and treasures and interacting with other players in different ways - all of that right in your browser.
A lot of giveaways have been contributed by the community members, and I would like to say a big Thank You to everyone who made a contribution! :)
Lots of changes have been made since the previous quest to make the game more enjoyable!
You can see many of the changes listed here.
Note: The Game engine is not properly supported by Internet Explorer (you will encounter all kinds of nasty bugs there) and it is recommended to use one of the following browsers: Chrome (perfect), Opera (perfect) or Firefox (great, but the game works a tiny bit slower and sounds sometimes mess up a little).
The only requirement is that your Steam account should be more than 90 days old.

I seem to be unable to enter the dungeon; when I choose to register as one of the three roles, the screen just gets a bit darker and nothing happens...
Woops, should be fixed now.
Thanks... wow, the new look is great!
Have fun! :)
Mhh... I think I have to click on Warrior, Wizard or Rouge after login through Steam?0
Please, try again, it should work now.
Works now but I'm redirected to http://steamdungeons.com/ after a few minutes :/
Weird, I'm checking what causes the problem now.
I'm liking the new look so far!
The "escape purgatory" minigame is much better than respawn time :v
Edit: I think there's a bug where the game stops taking any kind of input after you click "active abilities" in-battle till you refresh the page
Oh yes, it is! 😀
I am heading off to bed now, but I will try it out tonight after work. I'll join the group now, though.
It certainly sounds interesting and like fun. Thanks to you and everyone that has contributed.:)
You are welcome, hope you'll enjoy your adventure! :)
I'm terrible at this game :(.
Just keep trying and you'll succeed :)
Wait, the market closed? I didn't get a chance to get online this morning and spend my coins. :(
Yes, the market closes once the event starts.
I must have missed the text that said that. That's a major bummer.
You did take the coins in the dungeon with you.
Huh? What good are they there?
There are shops and trading with other players.
Is there a place to get bandages? I find the bleed chance to be way too high. I'm always bleeding, and bandages are absurdly rare.
Also, how do you use mastery points?
Bandages are quite rare indeed. You must be careful and try not to touch the spikes on walls to avoid bleeding :)
To use mastery points, you must switch to Masteries and Resistances tab at the top left corner of the screen.
Except I just get bleeding from examining normal walls, and the game won't let my use the points even when I'm on the page. I was just examining a perfectly normal wall, and then a spider just comes out of nowhere and poison me. Wtf? How am I supposed to deal with that? This isn't dark souls. In dark souls you are giving clear chances to prepare yourself. This is just russian roulette.
Also, is purgatory meant to have no solutions, because I'm currently on my 10th hall and there's still no way out. Not really liking this idea, especially when the game's RNG just screws you over at the drop of a hat.
Unlucky checks are only possible when you check walls with low concentration. You need to use Meditation ability to restore concentration when it gets low.
Purgatory can always be escaped, just keep moving to other halls until you find a way to escape. You will also be resurrected automatically withing an hour after death.
I see, so that's what concentration is for. Ok, good to know there is a way to mitigate that then.
Also, I can now level up, and I put a point in accuracy by accident. Woops.
Is there a way to passively regain health?
Yes, you might develop some abilities or find equipment that will regain your health. Also, regeneration scrolls cast a health regeneration effect for some time.
I'm encountering two weird stuff in the game, the first thing is described in my previous comment here and the other thing is random refreshes the game does by itself that delete my progress in Dream World/Purgatory World
Can you please tell me which browser you are using to play the game?
The bug with clicking active abilities or passive skills tab which froze the battle is now fixed!
Trying to figure out now why redirections and refreshes happen.
Yup, the "battle freeze" one is fixed and the sudden refreshes are less now, also I'm using Firefox to play the game
Bump for great game great event, needs more recognition. :D
Thank you, Dan! Have fun there :)
I seem to be stuck in a place with stairs i can't use and nowhere else to go xD
Edit: Nevermind, reloading the site made the stairs usable
Have you tried reloading the page? I usually fixes most of the bugs :p
Have you tried looking for a hidden door? Usually in that case there's a hidden door somewhere.
How do I regain energy in a fight? It seems really arbitrary when I can or can't back energy.
If you run of of energy in battle, you can use Defend option to restore the minimum amount needed to escape.
Yeah, but I defend like 10 times or so and I get nothing. I get that the defend option allows you to regain energy, but it seems really random.
You only gain energy if it is lower than the minimum amount you need to escape.
That still doesn't make sense, because even at 0 energy I get nothing. Is it health based or something?
I think you need to successfully block or enemy misses, same as to get full concentration bonus from defending
Just as Kuzu said, defence must be successful in order for it to recover EP. If enemy hits you, you don't recover energy.
Hi - thanks so much it's great. One bug I found (using Chrome) I discovered a better bow, but after taking it (and the log noted I took it) I still seem to have my old bow. Not sure if you can check my log to discover the problem. No worries if not, it's all good!
I'll look into it, thank you for reporting :)
Thanks. Just letting you know I just had the same problem again. I had a dagger, and picked up an axe, but for some reason I still have the dagger and no axe.
Yes, that's of few problems that are left now. Many nasty bugs have been destroyed already, and this one shall be no exception!
Thanks - I just got my first replacement to work! =^.^=
The same bug here - although I equiped a new bow, im still leaved with starter one.
I and some other players seem to not be able to lockpick one of the doors. The third to the last pin just won't budge no matter where I click. Just wondering if you could tell me if you made it on purpose like that, or is it bugged.
Fixed, sorry for the inconvenience it brought you :)
Hey, thanks again for this wonderful dungeon crawling experience! I have just a tiny question: I have already had several encounters with enemies, but I haven't got anything from them that I can eat. As a result, my hunger score is quite high. Is this normal? Are there other sources of food?
EDIT: I have just received some meat from a turtle. However, I still find food an item quite rare to come by!
There are several enemies that give you food when defeated :) Overall, yes, food is pretty scarce and must be used only when really necessary.
Is it possible to be stuck? It doesn't allow me to go in any direction.
Don't know what to do T_T
That certainly shouldn't happpen! Simply reloading the page often solves such problems. If it didn't, please tell me your ID in Steam Dungeons (it can be seen in your profile) and I will check your situation.
Oh, reload worked... Turned one of the arrows with wall, into a normal arrow.
I spent like 20+ minutes going around in circles in there... Trying to figure out what to do. LOL
Looks like the dungeon played tricks on you :) Hope the rest of the journey will go fine! 😀
How do I use ladders? I found one and it won't let me go up it.
If it doesn't show the arrow to move in the direction of the ladder - reloading the page should fix this problem. Also, you can't climb ladders when you are overburdened, so if you are - you'll need to get rid of some items or try to find another path.
What? Hobgoblin destroyed your Feet Equipment! T_T
Since when you could lose your equpment :< ?
Bumpy Yes :f
Since the current version of the game! (: You lose 1 random piece of equipment each time you get killed by a monster.
I little too harsh for my taste but have a bump. Yes.
And equipement endurance? And hunger :/ ? Ya bully T_T
Someone stole my soul? How do i get it back D:
That's very unfortunate! :O You'll have to find the Ritualist that will help you get a soul back.
Ahhh that sucks, someone's been stealing lots of souls where i am. Does that mean in the meantime I'll have to wait the hour to respawn? ): Hope to find her soon!
Looks like some evil force started roaming the dungeon and taking people's souls :p
Ask adventurers around to resurrect you if you fall - Wizards have Resurrection scrolls that they can't use on themselves and by resurrecting you they will get a good amount of light Karma.
P.S. that gif is amazing xD
I had started to use notebook to write down wall-traps and... and notebook reached limit so soon, so pen and paper are my best friends.
Also, strange that I didn't get a single gib yet. Level 9 and lots of checks already
Strange indeed :) But you seem to be closer than most adventurers to getting all the treasures anyway!
I got stuck on an encounter with the Spirit of Wisdom. It won't let me accept either offer, despite having the required soul. I selected Leave to exit out of the encounter, went and do RL stuff, came back, and can't get into the dungeon anymore. Trying to enter just bounces me back to the site main page. Using Chrome.
I switched over to Firefox just to see if a cookie or something was screwed up, and I can get in, but I'm back at that Spirit of Wisdom encounter, and it still won't accept either choice. I haven't selected Leave yet in Firefox.
Let me know your SD id and I will check your problem.
I can't figure what causes it at the moment, but leaving the spirit should work fine. Since spirits of wisdom appear relatively often, try leaving this one and see if all goes well with another one. I'll get back to ithis issue after a sleep.
As for redirection bug, clearing cookies should help here for now.
Re-signing back into my steam account on your website usually fixes any redirect issues I get.
Thank you for the remark, I'll keep that in mind!
I had the same issue, now every time I afk, when I return I have to clear the cookies for the site for it to allow me to enter the dungeon again.
stuck hungry, and keep sleeping, are there any way to get food?
You will get food by defeating some enemies.
Looks like the game has been against me this time around rip hahahahah
29 deaths, that's a lot...
I haven't seen any dead bodies this time, which makes me suspect I am missing them somehow. In what panel are they mentioned? I have some resurrection scrolls I could use... :P
EDIT: Ok, I am stupid. Just by clicking on the minimap...
Is there a way how to restart progress? I dont mean class, but i didnt know how it works, so i ended with touching spikes 3 times :/
Hi aragon789! No, there is no way to restart progress. Just be careful from now on and you'll be fine.
I'm stuck. Reload doesn't help. :( ID 2858.
You should be fine now.
