Random generation Our game has inherited random generation of the game world from the "roguelikes", i.e. the look and content of the Labyrinth will be unique in each new game: floors maps, monsters, treasures and hiding places, and even properties of found and created objects will be randomly generated by you. Each time you'll get a unique experience and find new ways to your goal. Such unusual behavior of the Labyrinth is justified by the plot - it was created by the Ancients, the ancestor of the vampires’ genus who turned it to his hiding place in a real trap for intruders. The mines of precious gems and prison catacombs, deserted caves and ancient treasuries – one can hardly understand what the Labyrinth was before it was liked by the Ancient, so many things are mixed in it ...
