Description

Possession 2 is a roguelike where you play as a ghost escaped from the Nether Regions, trying to make your way to the surface. You are incredibly frail, but have one advantage: you can possess the bodies of the monsters you encounter, and use their strength and abilities as your own.

History

Possession: Escape from the Nether Regions was created as part of the 2013 7-Day Roguelike Challenge, where it was tied for highest-rated game. Work began on Possession 2 in November of 2013.

Features

  • Dozens of possessable monsters, from the horrifying to the hilarious, with a wide variety of powers.
  • Special themed levels with unique hazards, creatures and layouts. Randomly generated, so each playthrough is different!
  • Item-less gameplay. The dead have no need for worldly possessions, they just slow you down.
  • Quick to pick up and play. Unlike most roguelikes, Possession 2 doesn't require you to memorize dozens of weird key commands, or puzzle over confusing skill and ability lists before you start playing.
  • Mod support! Add your own creatures, powers and special levels, or change the ones already there.
