Dweller 1.22.9 - changes aplenty!

It took a while didn't it? Sorry 'bout that... but it's finally here, the new version of Dweller! The new version is shipped with a long list of changes. Some highlights:

  • Shields are now in the off-hand category and can have on-block effects. Check out the spiked buckler!
  • You no longer auto-gain a point of HP on level up. HP will be listed along with the rest of the stats that you're able to pick
  • The required skull for the Restless Ghost quest should now be spawned on only the level where you get the quest, not randomly at any level.

Czech will be the next language supported by Dweller

Once again has the Dweller community stepped up and provided a translation of Dweller to a new language! This time it's forum user Wendingo who has provided a translation of Dweller into Czech! The next version will be out in a few days and with the new release Dweller will support English, Swedish, Russian, French, Spanish, Polish and Czech.

If you would like to see Dweller translated into your own language then please join us at the forums, post here or send me an e-mail. Translating the game into your own language will not only give you the pleasure of playing in your native tongue. As a translator you will also be immortalized through an in-game item of your choice and design. Items such as the Magical Catnip, the Hell Cloak and the Celestial Armor are all created by translators of Dweller. Why don't you translate the game yourself and claim an item of your own?

PS Do you want an item of your own but don't want to go through the trouble of translating Dweller? Why don't you make a Donation instead? Source and comments:
