This game is really awesome, except when you die.

Earlier I was playing my medium core character and I managed to finally work my way down to hell, where I made a stupid mistake and got killed. I tried a bunch of times to make my way down again but without my good gear it just wasn't happening. I got fed up and quit for the time being. I picked it up again and finally made it back to the spot where I died, to find all of my gear gone. I know video games ≠ productivity but this REALLY makes it all seem like a waste of time. Even Dark Souls isn't this gnarly when you die.

The default and original way of playing the game was softcore. Mediumcore was made to appeal to people who like the drop everything system from minecraft (I think?).

you chose mediumcore and your complaining when the thing that mediumcore does happens?

I usually just default to whatever the medium difficulty is in games so I figured this would be the way for me, and it DOES say what happens so I am ultimately to blame for picking it. but man, I just don't know if I can play anymore, I would basically be starting from scratch.

@original_hank: you could always inventory edit your stuff back onto a normal character

@schreiberty: I wouldn't be that bummed out if I could save my game and come back and get my stuff but the fact that its all gone when you quit is pretty messed up. I don't think they say anything about that.
