Version history

The Void: The Void was a new branch that contained numerous deadly monsters, including a void dragon, and a large number of portals that link to other dungeon branches. Entering the portal which one entered the void through would not necessarily lead to the same entrance. The void could be accessed via a portal located one level above the castle. The Void was introduced before version 0.4.0, disabled in version 0.4.0, reworked and reintroduced in version 0.6.0, and removed in version 0.8.0.
