You are tasked with slaying the Balrog deep within the Mines of Moria. A translation of Robert Alan Koeneke's (1957-2022) Moria into a modern experience.

Six D&D style classes and up to eight races create a unique play experience in your battle with randomized dungeon depths. Start your game in town with rags or riches based on a custom character backstory. Warrior class is recommended for players who are new to the game.

Progress you character with experience and attribute gains (strength, intelligence, wisdom, constitution, and charisma). Acquire spells, armors, weapons, wands, staves, potions, scrolls, legendary artifacts, and mining tools that shape your journey.

A character checkpoint is saved on each level transition. Checkpoints are persistent saves valid across all versions of the game. You may exit at any time, creating a midpoint save which provides the capability to quickly resume play. CTRL-z may be used to rewind previous actions up to the last checkpoint. Game patches ensure bugs are fixed by loading the last checkpoint, and invaliding the midpoint save.

Each town is generated during character creation. Shopkeepers feature unique personalities, item value preferences, and racial bias. You may visit town to renew your character and barter for goods using scrolls of Word-Of-Recall. The same scroll Word-of-Recall, when used in town, can return you to the deepest depths that you have visited in the Dwarvish mines below.

Koeneke paints a world of entropy where even artifacts of incredible power may fall apart. Learn the conditions of survival and die at the hands of merciless foes. This game wasn't made to be won, for the Balrog is a foe beyond any of you.

# Features of awesomeness
* Accessible gameplay: intuitive interactions with five essential commands.
* Preserves the roguelike variety that keeps you playing again and again.
* Pixel Artwork for 279 monsters plus dungeon tiles.
* Rewindable game simulation; learn quickly from your mistakes and play on!


Triangle Wizard 2 is the sequel to 2008's Triangle Wizard. Triangle Wizard 2 stays true to the gameplay of its parent but features updated graphics and a less obtuse interface. It is a realtime roguelite combining an ASCII character art style to represent creatures but normal graphical effects for spells and the environment. The player's character is a wizard represented by a triangle.

The main inspiration for Triangle Wizard, and thus Triangle Wizard 2, is the first iteration of Diablo. Like Diablo it features a deep dungeon delve through randomized levels, with obscure shrines and randomly generated items. The ultimate goal is to travel to the lowest level in Castle Everdoom and confront the Nameless One, an ancient evil whose influence is increasingly darkening the land (although alternative endings and goals are possible). Along the way the player will encounter many different monsters, traps, and bosses. If the player dies their corpse may return to haunt (or help) future adventurers.

There are many different races and classes to play. And in addition there is a advanced deity system with unique boons and curses. A player can further customize their character with gameplay altering talents. New in Triangle Wizard 2 is that race, class, and deity options slowly unlock during play.

There is a particular focus on interaction with the environment. Walls can be destroyed (sometimes revealing hidden rooms), water and lava can affect and be affected by magic, and knocking creatures into spikes hurts them, etc. There are also interactions between spells allowing one, for example, to counter or reflect spells.

Happy 15th Triangle Wizard Day everyone! It is hard to believe that the original game is already a decade and a half old. And with this milestone we also have the official release of Triangle Wizard 2. After 5 years of development, the sequel sees the light!

Written in C# and using the Unity game engine it is more modern, and releases on Windows, Linux, and Mac. Apart from various quality of life upgrades, it is mostly a faithful recreation of Triangle Wizard 1, but there is also some new content to discover!

Although I did a lot of testing, it is a new game, so there are probably still a few bugs. If you encounter any, please let me know! Also let me know whether the game runs fine on Linux and Mac. I do not have access to a Linux or Mac computer, so I am unable to test these builds myself. Finally, please report any frame rate issues, it is hard to determine system requirements, but I could release a build with reduced graphical demands if needed.

Happy (and good luck) exploring the renovated Castle Everdoom!

Traditional Roguelikes (Turn Based) / Dawn of the Mexica (now at v1.02)
« on: November 26, 2020, 06:40:17 PM »  $11.99  Win/Linux


Dawn of the Mexica is a challenging roguelike videogame based on the myths from the indigenous people of the Valley of Mexico in the age of the Culhua-Mexica Empire and the invasion of the spanish conquistadors.

Our story begins in a fateful morning, in which the sun god Huitzilopochtli hasn't risen...

Pure turn-based roguelike with procedural level generation (different every game!) and character permadeath.

Colored dynamic lighting. Light and shadows are essential in this sunless world.

Extremely complex and realistic combat system. Every weapon and armor type combination is taken into account. There's more than a thousand detailed critical effects: Every part of your body can be injured or broken, burn and freeze. You can become blind. Or deaf. You may bleed, become stunned, knocked out...

Complex character sheet with 9 stats, 12 Character classes, more than a hundred spells and more than 40 skills to choose from as you level up.

Friendly and intuitive interface. You can fully enjoy the game either with mouse or keyboard.

Weather/survival system. Even a torch may change temperature around you. Be careful not to freeze nor faint from the heat!

Deeply researched. You won't find "ooparts". The mexica background is not "aesthetic". Weapons, armor, clothing and items from that era are recreated as faithfully as historical data allows.

9  Win ~$12

Take command of your ship and crew as you explore space, planets, caves, shipwrecks, temples, and other dangerous locations. Find, buy, and sell commodities, equipment, and mysterious artifacts. Defend yourself against aggressive space pirates and hungry planetary denizens. Complete quests for profit, or to change the very power structure of the galaxy!
And the universe is infinite...
There is no limit to the number of sectors and planets you can explore, and there is no "level cap". Everything keeps getting more powerful, including your enemies!
Key Features:

    Infinite Universe in Bite-Size Pieces: You can win after 20 levels, or keep going to sector 5000 and beyond! Manageable maps keep you from getting lost in this open-world space adventure.
    Infinite Gear: There are always new weapons, shields, and devices to find, craft, or buy. They just keep getting better, the further you go!
    Infinite Challenge: Sure, your stuff keeps getting better, but the aliens, robots, and monsters get stronger too!
    Infinite Death: Did I mention the monsters? Because MONSTERS! ...and black holes and ion storms and horrible diseases and laser-gates and cave-ins and lava and ...
    Multiple Victories: Find and escape with the Amulet of Yendor. Become the conscience of a fledgling robotic civilization. Avenge humanity's decimation or befriend their overthrowers. Ascend to quasi-god-hood. Destroy the universe(?!). Diverse satisfying endings await the intrepid explorer.
    Procedural Crafting: Each new game scrambles the crafting recipes! So you think
    "surge frequency diode" + "quark screw" = "cloaking device"? Not anymore...
    Sentient Alien Species: 12 alien races with their own stories, agendas, and quest-lines. But remember: taking sides makes not just friends but enemies too.
    Turn Off Perma-Death! Just want to explore? Turn Off Perma-Death! (and achievements.)

What's different about the Steam version so far?

    Fullscreen 1080p display
    New and updated user interface and tile art (Just the map in the new version is larger than the entire game used to be!)
    New monsters, quests, devices, classes, and skills
    Whatever the Steam Community can come up with!

Why Early Access?
“Approaching Infinity is a complete game. But from my current perspective, it's the background for a substantially richer and more complex experience. Deeper interactions, superior stories. And you, the Steam Community, can help!”
Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?
“Approximately 6 months. I expect all true "errors" to be caught in the first few weeks, and then it's all just features, features, features!”
How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?
“Approaching Infinity is already a fully playable, winnable, lose-able traditional rogue-like game set in space.

Steam achievements still need to be finished, and trading cards too. I'd like to make lots of little quality-of-life improvements, and implement a 10th victory condition (there are already 9 different ways to win!)

Planned features include expanding planets, a built in shipwreck editor, geological events, more personal involvement between captain, crew, and aliens, etc.

But the real motivation to be in early access is all the interactions, quality-of-life improvements, and totally new ideas that the community will suggest.”
What is the current state of the Early Access version?
“Playable and addictive! Every item in the current feature list is enabled and working. There may still be some "divide by zero" errors lurking in the code, which is another reason to do early access for a while. Thanks in advance for those bug reports!”
Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?
“Yes. Early Access pricing is lower, while full release will be higher. But nowhere near its all-time high :p”
How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?
“In the past I worked with a highly involved community, and together we implemented a LOT of new features; I want to do that again!

Approaching Infinity uses the written words, visual art, and level designs of hundreds of people. I want the Steam community to contribute planet names, poetry, short references, abstract art, and shipwreck levels that will be curated and added into the game.”

Traditional Roguelikes (Turn Based) / Bloatcrawl 2 (now at v2.2)
« on: January 08, 2020, 12:54:12 PM »  Win/Mac/Online

Bloatcrawl 2 is a fork of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup (github). If you aren't familiar with the base game this fork probably won't make any sense.

New Species

    Argon tile Argons are, unlike most other living beings, made of gas. They can only gain resistances by levelling up.
    Strange beings from beyond the stars, Astrals cannot gain resistances to magic or the elements. Their attacks inflict powerful debuffs on beings from this world.
    Bunyip tile Bunyips are strange, black, oily creatures that live in billabongs. They swim well but cannot call on divine powers or wear armour.
    Butterfly tile Cute Butterflies will stop at nothing to obtain the Orb. Monsters turn neutral when they first see you.
    Dab Dwarves have perfected the ancient art of dabbing. They can dab on multiple creatures at once and may even daze their foes with the power of their dab.
    Ember Elves have depleted magical reserves, but regenerate magical power quickly. As they develop, their magic becomes more powerful but harder to control.
    Faerie Dragon tile Faerie Dragons are attuned to magic and their spells cost fewer magic points. Their shimmering scales repel attacks and their wings let them fly.
    Flans are gelatinous and slightly corrosive beings. Their fluid shape lets them fit easily into any body armour, but they cannot wear other armour types.
    Fungoid tile Fungoids are mushroomy humanoids with roots instead of feet. They cannot move when monsters are around, but release confusing spores at enemies when they attack.
    Gnomes are small creatures who are highly attuned with the earth. They are skilled in the use of magical devices and ranged weaponry.
    Hedgehog tile Rolling around at the speed of sound, Hedgehogs have got places to go and gotta follow their rainbow.
    Hermit Crab tile Hermit Crabs: These clever crustaceans move into larger shells over time. If their shell is broken in an attack, they can usually escape and find a smaller replacement.
    Irits are magical, brutish one-eyed humanoids. They are adept at casting spells in heavy armour, although it costs them life force to do so.
    Kitsune are enthralling fox spirits that take on human shapes. They are poor at most skills and frailer than humans, but can charm their foes.
    Leprechaun tile Leprechauns are small and frail but versatile. Their intrinsic luck gives them a knack for finding better items.
    Mayflytaur tile Half insect, half human, Mayflytaurs have incredibly short lifespans but have evolved to be exceptionally overpowered in just about every imaginable way.
    Strange phantoms summoned from the mirror world, Mirror Eidola rapidly fade away. They must slay other creatures and take their energy to stay in this plane.
    Oni tile Oni are monstrous in nature with the rough appearance of Ogres, albeit smaller. They discover spells as they gain experience and ignore schools of magic.
    Deeper than a Deep Elf and twice as elven, Profound Elves are extremely frail magical experts.
    Protean tile Proteans are a race of vaguely humanoid amoebas. They grow in health and size as they mutate.
    Quill orcs love to read and hate close combat. They read books and scrolls at an uncanny pace.
    Ratlings are verminous humanoids that mature at an incredible pace, but learn very slowly. They have an affinity for poison magic.
    Robot tile Robots are metallic humanoids crafted by Dwarves. They break equipment when uninstalling it and have a poor grasp of religion, but can shoot lasers.
    Shapeshifter tile Shapeshifters imitate monsters around them to an uncanny degree. They cannot control their shifting, and are only rarely seen in their true form.
    Silent Spectre tile Silent Spectres are terrible spirits that bring an unearthly silence to the area around them, preventing spell casting, divine invocations and even reading scrolls.
    Slitherier Naga tile Slitherier Nagas are offbrand Nagas, and about twice as much everything. Extremely healthy, extremely stealthy, extremely big, and excruciatingly slow.
    Less dextrous than other elves, Squat Elves have mastered the art of the power squat. They use this ability to enhance their strength and intelligence.
    Turtle tile Turtles are hard-shelled warriors trained in the arts of ninjutsu. They fight evil wherever it can be found and follow a strict honour code.
    Deeper than deep, Unfathomable Dwarves cannot heal even through divine means. However, they have adapted to heal on kills and brew ambrosia potions from leftover life essence.
    Unipode tile Unipodes are distantly related to Octopodes, but have a single tentacle instead of eight. They can only wear one ring and cannot use two-handed weapons.
    The permanently baked Weed Elves aren't quite as smart or nimble as other elves, but they are still skilled at magic. They trail smoke wherever they go.
    Xeno Elves are strange insectoid elves from a distant land. Their magical efficiency is far better than most species, but their magic drains when moving near enemies.
    Yeti tile Yeti are large, seldom-seen creatures that live on frozen mountain peaks. Sufficiently mature Yeti passively freeze adjacent foes.
    Zodach tile Zodach are the burnt-out remnants of a decayed celestial species. Nearby monsters are drawn in by their immense gravitas.

New Backgrounds

    Alchemist tile Alchemists bring some homebrewed potions and a very special hat on their dungeon adventure.
    Anarchist tile No Kings, No Rulers (maybe a god though). Anarchists are bent on dismantling the dungeon hierarchy with rocks and explosives.
    Archaeologist tile Thoroughly inept at fighting but well dressed, Archaeologists enter the dungeon looking to cast light over the origins of ancient relics.
    Aspirant tile Aspirants are novices at magic who have acquired books of powerful magic. They hope to one day master the spells within.
    Billionaire tile When the revolution comes, some Billionaires flee the surface and enter the dungeon with a fraction of their hoarded wealth.
    Blood Knight tile Servants of the demon god Makhleb, Blood Knights begin with moderate skill in combat and quickly learn to harness Makhleb's destructive power.
    Bound tile Bound serve Ashenzari, the god of curses, and begin their journey partially bound with cursed equipment.
    Caveperson tile Cavepeople start with exceptional strength but, unfortunately, neolithic weapons.
    Chaincaster tile Lots of people wish they could cast spells in heavy armour. Chaincasters do something about it.
    Dancer tile Dancers have left their friends behind and entered the dungeon in service of Uskayaw. They have few combat skills but are quite good at evading attacks.
    Death Bishop tile Pontiffs of Yredelemnul, Death Bishops carry an unholy staff and use the pain spell in service of their evil god.
    Deprived tile Deprived start with nothing but a ration and almost no skills. Survival may prove... difficult.
    Derserker tile Derserkers are ex-berserkers, who ran off with excellent weapons. Now, they must face Trog's terrible wrath.
    Disciple tile Disciples follow the Wu Jian Council and begin the game with a good weapon.
    Doctor tile Doctor: Medical professionals from the surface occasionally enter the dungeon. They follow the healer god Elyvilon.
    Entomologist tile Entomologists study insects and related creatures. They bring along a net and a sack of spiders, and can also summon butterflies.
    Fencer tile Incredibly dextrous, Fencers enter the dungeon with a rapier, fencer's gloves, and an amulet of the acrobat.
    Gambler tile Gambler: Followers of Nemelex Xobeh who have lost everything in a run of bad luck sometimes venture into the Dungeon. They'll need Nemelex's help to turn things around.
    Gardener tile Gardeners worship Fedhas Madash and enter the dungeon to grow shrooms.
    Gonger tile Gongers gong. They gong real loud.

A roguelike in the spirit of Nethack, explore the dungeon underneath an Italian villa in the 15th century. The condottiero Perin Nazana has gone mad, locking himself in his massive dungeon containing vast treasure and deadly foes.

Build your character and adventure through over 30 levels.
Who are you?

Live your character's life before your journey into the dungeon. Choose a background and stat, then live your character's life 5 years at a time. Follow the path of a peasant turned soldier, or choose a life of contemplation and prayer. Be a craftsman, an alchemist, a knight, an inquisitor. Your choices decide your skills, and your skills protect you through the dungeon!
What do you do?

Choose your approach. Kill any in your way, or charm your way through the dungeon. Craft deadly potions as an alchemist, convert hostile foes as a priest, or bribe those foes as a merchant. Gather a group of protectors or finish it solo. Use magic, might, charm, or money to reach Perin!
What's to come?

More monsters, more loot, more magic! In short, more content and challenges to overcome.

The current version of the game is an "alpha" version: beatable, nearly feature complete, somewhat untested. This is currently a Windows only game, though macOS and Linux are certainly possible in the future.

Traditional Roguelikes (Turn Based) / Demon (Alpha 10/27/19)
« on: July 22, 2019, 12:20:45 PM »  Win/Mac/Linux


In Demon, you play as a Summoner who has donned one of several relics capable of binding and summoning demons. But in return, each relic compels its bearer to enter a mysterious tower from which no Summoners seem to return...

Starting with only a few meager powers and a weak demon ally bound to your relic, you must climb the tower, recruiting stronger demons and learning new skills in order to survive.

Though each relic is powerful, they still have limits: They only allow you to command - not directly control - the demons you encounter, and the powers you can acquire from these allies will never eclipse those of the mightiest demons within the tower. Without powerful, well-chosen allies and clever use of the abilities learned from them, there will be no chance of survival...


(specifics on content amounts reflect current content as of 7/21/2019, not final goals)

    The 23 floor tower awaits you, its layout generated anew each game.
    Over 150 different demons to recruit and summon as allies.
    More than 700 different abilities you and your demon allies can learn.
    Rich, detailed in-game descriptions drawn from real world mythology for each demon.

Over 6 months in the making, the first release build featuring the new Soul Brand mechanic is out the door!

Soul Brands are a new type of item you can find in the Tower and connected dimensions, functioning similarly to equipment in other roguelikes. Once you find a Soul Brand, you may spend a small Credits to apply it to yourself or an ally. One Brand may be applied any number of times, provided you're willing to spend the Credits.

Brands always have at least a positive effect, but may also have negative effects, or conditions that restrict their usage. Even these penalties and conditions have an upside though: each one increases the power of the Brand's positive effects considerably!

You can refine your use of this new power with new Relic Upgrades that interact with Brands: Refine Brand can increase a Brand's level (and thus its power), Scan Brand will let you swipe a copy of a Brand an enemy is using, and Create Brand will let you sacrifice demons to create new, somewhat customized Brands.

But beware: your enemies have also received this new power. Even stray demons may have a Brand, and demons wielded by enemy summoners are certain to utilize them, to say nothing of the summoners themselves.

The Tower beckons once more, brimming with new power. Good luck to you all... you will need it more than ever, now.

Traditional Roguelikes (Turn Based) / FreeLarn Now at SPIRIT NAGA
« on: May 25, 2019, 05:00:47 PM »   Win/mac/Linux/Source

FreeLarn was first released in 2017 by Gibbon.

FreeLarn was the culmination of over 2 years of work to rewrite Larn (12.4.4) sufficiently to re-license it under a free software license.

A few features which are unique to FreeLarn:

    The Great Lance of Death is replaced with the Great Sword of Death (because a Lance isn't a very fearsome weapon).
    Additions of a Prayer Book, a Ghani Statue, Candles and a Fire Tunic which each have their uses and to build upon the thin religious layer that wasn't developed in the original Larn (only altars, praying etc..).
    The Volcano is replaced with the Temple of Larn (because nobody slips into a trap door under a Volcano)
    The doors of the Temple of Larn will burn the player unless a Fire Tunic is equipped.
    Randomized mazes each time a player leaves and re-enters a level.
    Known mazes will become unknown upon loading a saved game (for difficulty and to prevent cheating).
    Hunger has been added to increase realism and difficulty but without irritating the player too much.

Platforms and versions

FreeLarn runs on most UNIX/UNIX-Like systems and on Windows. The game is architecture independent and can be compiled on ARM, x86 and x64 (and probably others).

After a 14 month hiatus, FreeLarn gets another release. Once again, full of improvements, stability and bug fixes:

    Removed showing spells when reading a Prayer Book and replaced with
    suitable alternative text and benefits.
    Fixed death text and integer for starving to death.
    Modified death texts to make sense after 'killed by' sentence.
    Removed more redundant C-style ints.
    Removed aur Makefile.
    Removed JsonCPP and replaced with an MIT ConfigReader
    Author credited and License is added in 'docs'.
    Removed 'json' folder and added config header in 'config'.
    Renamed fl_config.json to fl_config.cfg.
    Fixed a bug for the maze generation where the player would
    always spawn next to a mob room.
    Fixed a bug where the opening of the door text would overlap
    the 'LVL' field on the text drawing area.

This release comes on multiple architectures and operating systems, see below:

Choose this if you are on an original RaspberryPi (also RPI2/3) or another ARM system (it's backwards compatible).
Choose this if you're on a mac (10.10+).

Choose this if you are using the MIPS64 system.

Choose this if you are using a modern POWER8 or higher system (PowerPC64 little endian).

Choose this if you are on a 64bit GNU/Linux system (Ubuntu 19.04 for example).
Choose this if you are on 64bit Windows.

Except the Windows and macOS builds, if you are unsure, use 'file freelarn' on the binary to get the full details of the architecture it's built against.
