ElonaPlus (now at v1.08)

Full props to this article for laying it all out and providing a direct link.

Essentially, the Roguelike Elona, carried onward by some new folks after the original dev moved on, banging away at it with myriad fixes and additions---with the game still being pretty well bilingual Jp/En though some odd untranslated bits remains that are not essential.

Very much inspired by ADOM, you can think of it as a window to an alternate universe where Thomas Biskup hailed from Japan and made use of or otherwise ingested many a questionable substance while still aiming to have a proper compelling game at the core.

Cool. There was talk of a possible Linux port when the developer stepped back and released the sources. Anyone know is this might still be happening?

As always,

Whatever questionable substances were involved in the making of Elona, I thoroughly approve of them and declare my desire to get me some of that stuff. ;D
