MidBoss, the challenging roguelike where you help a lowly imp possess fallen foes, taking their powers until you’re strong enough to become the final boss, has begun to do some neat in-game events, the first of which aims to let you show a little LGBT Pride with its death cards for a limited time.
MidBoss‘ death cards, which are earned upon death or beating the game, let players take that particular seed from a given generated run, allowing them to bring elements and items over into a new game to try again. These cards, which feature some delightfully silly explanations on how you met your end, have been given a rainbow makeover for the time being, although players can keep this theme after the event is over by sending out a picture of their demise (or success!) on Twitter.
“Over half of the people who work at or with Kitsune Games are members of the LGBT community in some way, so as a studio we’re big LGBT supporters,” said Emma ‘Eniko’ Maassen, founder of Kitsune Games. “This event allows us to both show that aspect of the studio and show solidarity with the LGBT community, but it also lays the groundwork for future events.”
It’s a fun reason to get back into the game and start helping that imp reach its dreams (as is the developer’s constant work in improving the game and adding onto it), so why not get back to dungeon crawling with this celebratory event?
MidBoss is available for $14.99 on Itch.io, the Humble Store, and Steam. For more information on the game and developer Kitsune Games, you can head to the developer’s site or follow them on YouTube and Twitter.
