Tower of Rune is a game of exploration, uncovering the map, and finding upgrades. Unlike similar games on a grander scale, ToR bypasses the twitch fighting and automates combat as an instant outcome when you meet your foes. Explore to level up, find upgrades to increase your stats even more, and uncover special relics that offer stat boosts or bonus effects as you travel through 8 floors of the Tower, fight bosses, and work your way towards one of three endings. Get the true ending and unlock a bonus mode that's a faster paced action focused mini-game to wrap up the story.

Windows 10 may be required to run games made in this version of GameMaker Studio.

Looked interesting and wanted to give it a try, but after downloading it doesn't run.  I get the error "The procedure entry point MFCreateDXGISurfaceBuffer could not be located in the dynamic link library MFPlat.DLL."  Even a full reinstall of redists and such didn't fix it

Thanks for trying the game! I did some searching around for that error and it appears to be an issue with Windows. Microsoft's website has a few Help topics on how to fix the error, if you want to check it out: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/search/explore?q=MFPlat.DLL

If those still don't work, you just need to contact Itch.io's help to get a refund. Sorry, creators don't have the power to issue refunds so you have to go through the site.


Seems like it's likely from still having Windows 7.  I won't be seeking a refund because I can find other ways to enjoy it, but unless there's some way to make it compatible I'd suggest adding a warning that Win10 is required.

Thanks for the reply. Itch doesn't seem to have a minimum settings section, but I added a note to the game description.
