    After over 20 hours of gameplay, I finally got my first CTD.

    I had been playing about four hours straight (damn this is addictive) and made it from level 1 to level 3. About halfway through level three, I decided to head back to a big vendor on level 1 who had something I wanted.

    When I started up a stairway back to level 2, I got a CTD.

    Wish I could be more detailed with this report, but there wasn't any further noticeable trigger other than walking into the stairwell, and the long stretch of play time.

    I had the same thing happen to me.. made it to level 5 after some hours, decided to go back one lvl and *poof* the game was gone and i was on my desktop without any errormessage.. it was very disappointing.
    I really dont want to turn permadeath off.. i just want to play this game as intended.

    I had several reproducable CTDs when I tried to steal from Braxx on level 2-4
    Sadly I didn't note the exact details :/

    @Avialle You can play with permadeath ON and if you died, then go delete the save file yourself :p. Same effect.

    @NefariousKoel Did you have any kind of summoned pet following you near the stairs?
    If you have pets out,changing levels sometimes crash the game.

    CTD = "Crash To Desktop"

    Used to also sometimes qualify as BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death) in earlier Windows OS'es (Operating Systems). ;-)

    Had the same thing happen, I had a mustache golem, but it died just before I went up the stairs. Goodbye char :(

    Just had a CTD after reaching level 4. I wasn't doing much other than moving around when it happened. So frustrating, since it's the second one I've had. Roguelikes should be permadeath, and there are different score categories on steam for each game mode, so I don't want to have to turn it off.

    I just crashed trying to go up stairs from tier 2 to tier 1,
    I had a wyrmling out at the time as well.

    I don't think I can play like this, it's too frustrating
    having crashes like this happen after playing for a while.
