Developer: T-Bone/Teabone

Storyline: You control a party of 4 unique individuals, ranging from different genders, race and class, navigating caverns, dungeons and other depths of the forgotten and unknown. As you embark on an adventure into the deep seeking treasures and combating dangerous foes that lurk in the dark.

Description: Guild of The Peculiars is a grid-based, first person, dungeon crawler RPG. Inspired by first person RPG's of the 1980's and early 1990's, such as Eye of The Beholder, Wizardry, Lands of Lore and Dungeon Master. Also interactive adventure games like Shadowgate.

Guild of The Peculiars uses similar mechanics as the the classic dungeon crawlers, in that you can only move in a grid and rotate 90 degrees in all directions. Similar games have since come out recently using this same mechanic that the classics used to. Such games as Legends of Grimrock and Vaporum.

Game Website:

Gameplay: Grid-based RPG's of this genre require that you navigate by strafed-left or right and moving forward and back. This can be done by using the arrow keys or WASD. You can also rotate left or right by pressing Q or E. You interact with the environment by using the mouse cursor and clicking on objects you see in the world. This means you can pull switches, open chests and collect loot.

You control up to 4 people at once. This means you have to manage their health and use them to combat enemies. Each party member can wield up to two weapons at a time. Both weapons can be controlled by pressing either left or right mouse button while in battle. Or by simpling clicking on the weapon icons.

Guild of The Peculiars also comes with an extensive menu system which includes a full inventory, status menu, spells, quests and more. The interface is fully interactive with the mouse.

Looking for Testers!
I am currently looking for alpha testers who don't mind bumping into walls and purposely finding bugs and issues with the game. Also looking for unfiltered critical feedback about the game in general. from the visuals, mechanics, game-play, tone and anything else you may find. Any feedback is incredibly valuable at this early a stage in development.

Send any bug reports via Discord:

The game is currently in very early pre-alpha stage. The story will continue to evolve and change and so will the visuals.

Welcome down here! Glad to see you finally decided to make a wip thread.
Feedback is a bit rare down here, but I know that people are reading what we post here....there are dozens of us DOZENS!!

In all seriousness I am somewhat aware of all the scripting that went into this and am in awe that you got it working at all, let alone as well as it does. Its 100% not what GG was designed to do and here you are doing it anyway so godspeed and best luck with it!

Easily the most impressive Game Guru game I have ever played! The scripts work extremely well, game is very well optimized, and lighting/graphics look good. This is an awesome project and its refreshing to see something unique and not another boring FPS game.

Me too. Big wow to the task you have achieved i could only even dream of.
Choosing characters
Turn based attacks
Skills advances etc
This is what i love
Im a fan of the crawler all the way back to the original i believe was dungeon master. Ultima got me into the rpg games on my c64 was amazing and a curse. Many a day lost on that instead of study. Still fantastic and then after the graphic adventure advancements with the pawn and guild if thieves I attempted to make a dungeon crawler graphic adventure on G.A.C
Total fail.
Anyway this looks fantastic you have a fantastic logical mind. I wish i had i and more the art side of life.
I loved grimrock 1 and 2. I also like the the crawler link site. A few lovely games being made there. Noticed the fantasy monsters being used a lot in them from tgc. Or unless the pack as been sold on other sites
Anyway fantastic work
Would love to test
