Din's Curse: The Dangers Of Explosions In Unstable Caves
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

A new blog post from Soldak Entertainment's Steven Peeler once again reveals information about the company's upcoming action RPG, Din's Curse. This time Peeler explored the unstable cave environments in the game, which will include cave-ins triggered by player and monster actions.

In Din's Curse players take the role of an adventurer cursed to walk the lands in a quest for redemption. The game features 141 possible class combinations, an infinite number of dynamically generated towns, and a game world directly impacted by player choices.

A cave-in is exactly what you expect, large forces like explosions can break weakened areas of the cave or dungeon causing large rocks to fall down, crushing whatever is below them. Falling rocks do a good bit of damage, can temporarily block areas, and can cause further cave ins. Be careful with those powerful spells. They might kill your intended victims, but they also might rain down boulders on you or block your escape route.

While a powerful explosion can cause cave-ins just about anywhere, they are much more likely when the surrounding stone is already weak. Water drips and cracks show a slight weakness, while steam and gas leaks show more. Either way, be careful when visible signs of weakness are present. Gas leaks are even worse since they're flammable and tend to explode themselves. Also if there are support beams in the area, try not to break them.

Of course, in Din's Curse, not causing explosions isn't always easy. Many monsters in the game can use spells that explode. The Chaos Lords with their earthquake creating stomps are particularly dangerous. There are also numerous traps on the ground, on chests, and on many other objects. Even obvious explosion dangers like exploding barrels and energy vortexes can cause cave-ins. These circumstances will generate interesting decisions. Should you break that barrel hoping for loot when it is right next to the gas leak? What if it is near a gas leak, 4 cracks, and an energy vortex? What if you are playing a hardcore character?
