This dungeon is full of mysteries and heartless monsters.
You should get through all these obstacles and reach to the end of the dungeon to save the world.
As a rogue-like game, if your player dies during the game, you should start the game from the very beginning.
Every time you restart the game, you will see the newly constructed dungeon and experience a new adventure.
The items you earned are also gone, so you have to start over a new game with nothing.
Fortunately runes and craft recipes that you earned from the Particle of Memory will be remained. When you clear the boss or you die, you will get the Particle of Memory, which you can earn runes and craft recipes.
