I'll keep it installed on my Steam library and try to play a few times though.

Thanks. I always enjoy hearing what people think of the game. The lack of sound on some Linux distros is a known issue. You may find a solution that works for you here:-

I really enjoyed this. Took a bit to get the hang of it, but it's actually quite fun.

So, how exactly does this qualify as a "game"?. Seems like when I attempt "playing" it, everything is pre-determined.

I see no real way for me to build up my character, or how to make a good stratigy on fighting the bad guys.

Can someone please post a nice playerguide? The one on YouTube is just a bias 10 minute long rant.

I really want to love this, I really do!

It's not pre-determined. And not every level playable from the start. Mask looks like simplest level for me to start - it _can_ be finished with basic character. :)

Stick to the easier ones at first, like Mask of the Boy King or Journey to the Kimon.

Here's a guide someone made about completing your first quest - Chat.hackslashloot.com

A fun game that takes me back to the old ASCII hack&slash games of yore. Worked great in Linux64 except for the music/sound effects, which didn't play at all. It would also be nice to save different characters and continue.

I love Rogue-likes, and was excited to see one with a nice graphical style. The simple interface also makes this game more approachable than most games in that genre. However, what I enjoy about Rogue-likes is their complexity of interaction. This game is closer to the complete lack of complexity of "Gauntlet." Which is perfectly fine if that's what one enjoys. "Hack, Slash, Loot" has the classic "NetHack" keys available for movement and attacking. But this just makes it feel like that much more…
