Frequently Asked Questions
I don't know how to play minesweeper. Can I learn through DemonCrawl?
DemonCrawl includes a tutorial that covers all of the basic gameplay mechanics. In fact, some players have told us that they believe DemonCrawl is the best way to learn minesweeper - the RPG-like health system means you won't necessarily lose the game from a single mistake.
We also recommend watching other DemonCrawl players on Twitch if you're interested in learning advanced strategy!
Are you going to release paid DLC for DemonCrawl?
Nope, we're doing free DLC instead. 🙂
We recently released a massive expansion called Sweeping Heights, free for all of our players. There are several more expansions in early stages of development.
We are working hard to generate enough revenue through Patreon to bring these expansions to life. Please consider supporting us if you like what we do and want to see new DemonCrawl content for a long time to come!
Are there microtransactions in DemonCrawl?
There are zero microtransactions on PC.
On Android, we use a free-to-play model supported with the following microtransactions: Full Game Unlock, Adblock, and the ability to purchase Tokens.
Which screen resolutions are supported by DemonCrawl?
DemonCrawl officially runs in either 16:9 or 16:10 aspect ratio. You may configure the game client to run in any resolution, but you may run into minor visual artifacts (e.g. black bars or stretched backgrounds) if you choose an unsupported ratio.
Can I transfer my save file between machines?
DemonCrawl save files are tied to your Steam account on PC and Google Play account on Android. You can access your data from another device as long as you are signed into the same account. Save files cannot be transferred from PC to Android or vice versa. You may disable cloud functionality altogether if you so choose.
Will you port DemonCrawl to (insert your favorite console here)?
We are eager to bring DemonCrawl to as many platforms as possible! At the time of writing, we are preparing a DemonCrawl client for Linux and have plans for a Mac release to follow. Nintendo Switch and iOS are also on our radar.
Who are Therefore Games?
Therefore Games is an independent developer based out of Dayton, Ohio.
Founded by Eric Black in 2019, we are passionate about bringing original ideas to gamers around the world. To sum up our way of thinking, "if AAA studios don't want to make roguelite minesweeper, we'll just do it ourselves."
Are you working on other games?
There are always ideas for new games, but we have decided to focus our energy on DemonCrawl for the time being.
My game lags in the Endless Multiverse. Help?
Endless Multiverse relies on frequent texture page swapping due to the dynamic nature of the stage graphics. This can cause slowdowns on certain video cards. If you have an nVidia GPU, please see the following thread for a possible solution:
The solution involves changing a 3D setting within nVidia cPanel. AMD and Intel users may have access to equivalent settings, although we cannot confirm at this time.
