Each game offers not only unpredictable terrain, but also up to billions of procedurally generated beast permutations, coming from a neural network that invents creatures from a seemingly endless abyss.

Combat these abominations with a variety of spells.

Expand your arsenal by pouring the blood of your enemies on magical altars to unlock new spells. But be careful: every time you go down, the world is reborn and all your equipment disappears.
