The only character development is how you spend your skill points. They're like a glorified (but still engaging) health bar. You keep them alive as a means to an end... to go deeper, solve all the puzzles and find all the secrets.

If you enjoy RPGs for intricate plots and detailed NPCs with exposition oozing from their very pores... this is going to disappoint.
Thank you! Doesn't really sound like something I'd enjoy too much though, unless it has a serious loot-just-one-more-dungeon--la-diablo-hook.
