Challenges / TE4 Modules Contest voting has started!
« on: December 01, 2013, 12:33:50 PM »
For 1 year some people have been working hard to create new roguelikes using TE4 and today is the moment of truth!

Their work of love is now available at:
Please go there, download and play them (and then vote) for feedback is essential to developers and the winner will win 500€!

The games range from modern retakes of old Rogue concepts to re-creation of D&D and space-derelict-looting :)

Oh and lastly to those that do not like ToME, please do not confuse ToME and its engine; those games have nothing in common with ToME, they each are their very own games :)

My minions, I am happy and pround to give you Tales of Maj'Eyal 1.0.5 ! See

Other Announcements / T-Engine4 module contest is open!
« on: January 01, 2013, 04:24:47 PM »
(copied for
People of Maj'Eyal, my minions!

With the release of Tales of Maj'Eyal 1.0.0 I can now start to create new content again, branch into new campaigns, ... and this shall be great fun.

But there is one side of the game that is not as developed as it could and I wish to change that. It is however not something I can do myself: Modules!
So, in the spirit of promoting the creation of new, quality, games based on TE4 I would like to create a new contest!

During this year 2013 up until the 1st december your task will be to create new, amazing and fun games using TE4. Anyone can, and is welcome to, participate (except me obviously) !
When the contest closes there will be a big vote when ToME players can elect the "best" game.
Players will be asked to rate each game on fun, polish and innovation, the winner being determined by the best average of those factors.

In addition of fame and pleasure of having created a fun game the 1st place will also grant a 500€ reward, the second a 150€ reward and the third a 50€ reward (by paypal).

The rules to participate are as follow:

    Game must be announced on by the 1st of august (but you are encouraged to announce, and start dev much earlier)
    Game must not use a modified TE4 engine (so taking the .team file should work on any ToME installation)
    Game must not be a "variant" of ToME itself, it must be its own thing. Code from ToME can be used, but only in small parts (i.e: taking inspiration of the party code is fine, ripping half the class files is not)
    Game must be comply with TE4 license (but it inherently does anyway)
    Game graphics (if you choose to have) can not use the shockbolt tileset (which is licensed only to ToME)
    Game graphics, musics, ... that are not code can be under a different license (and with the authorization of the authors obviously)
    Game must be released by the 1st december (you can, and are encouraged to continue dev on it afterwards obviously)
    Games are encouraged (but not required) to release often during the year. Remember for players to like your game they must be able to play it!
    Games can be adaption of other games/roguelikes, as long as you respect copyrights, licenses and the wish of the authors
    Game must be published at least on as a game module

You are very welcome to join #tome on where nice people can sometimes help you and post about your game/progress/questions in the modules section of the forums!

Now open your code editors and start coding!T-Engine4 module contest is open!

The board is set, the pieces are moving.

Nearly three years ago I uttered those same words when releasing the first beta of ToME4.
Before that there were 20 closed alphas and since then 43 betas and 4 RC releases, all played and loved by an increasing number of players, now over ten thousand.
During all this time my goal has never changed: to build a game that is both deep and complex but also fun and as accessible as possible. I have never believed in grinding, and have in many cases gone against the "traditional roguelike way" and I have always done it with those goals in mind.
Today is payoff time! For three years I have worked extremely hard on this game because I fell in love with it and I am blessed because others did too: great, fun, nice people; some of which also helped in the making of the game; each in their own way. To them, and to all my players, I send a huge "Thanks, I love you girls and guys!"

Without further annoying chit-chat, and with immense pleasure, I give you: Tales of Maj'Eyal 1.0.0
Go download it from

If you wish to help me a little more you can do two things:
- Send a donation, they really help:
- Go vote for ToME on Steam:

Now go have fun my minions, live and die in Eyal!
