The video games you played as a kid, mashed together and remade into a tactical role-playing game.

    Explore an open world where characters, items, and environments are an eclectic mashup of classic games.
    Detailed turn-based combat system inspired by the 1994 classic, X-Com.
    Realistic physics simulation and large, open environments allow for a rich variety of tactical options.
    Permanent death ensures that combat is always tense.


Every time you start a new game, the game procedurally generates a new world, using decades-old video games as its building blocks. The result is a collision of genres, where haunted swamps, tropical war zones, and peaceful mushroom villages all stand side-by-side. You'll build up your own custom squad of retro game characters, with a mix of skills ranging from mental health and reaction time, to the use of blasters and the ability to jump five times your own height.

Enemy is built on a turn-based combat system closely inspired by the original X-Com and Jagged Alliance. You'll devise strategies based around the unique set of abilities you've chosen for your team, and then execute them step-by-step, all while responding to counter-moves made by the enemy. It models the stress of battle on your heroes, who can flee or go berserk if things start to go too wrong. Additionally, everything in the game is destructible. If you damage the supports of a building in the middle of a fight, the whole structure can come crashing down on you. Inadvertently starting a small fire in the wrong place can lead to being caught in the middle of a massive inferno. Combat is dynamic, and easily spirals out of control.

IlluminASCII

Huge letters loom in the darkness of the RNG. The sinister organisation of the ILLUMINASCII conspire to bring forth a New World Order throughout all the ascii land. As the lowly @ symbol, can you defeat their agents and overturn the conspiracy?

Illuminascii is a new FPS with a ascii text based visual style that features randomly generated content and roguelike / rpg elements. Monsters, weapons, armor, levels and cutscenes are all created with random characteristics.

The aesthetics of a roguelike, in a modern engine.

UnReal World   8)

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=249428292

Into the Far North we shall take you...
...as far as we can by the means of computer role-playing.

UnReal World is a unique low-fantasy roguelike game taking place in the Far North long, long ago.
It's a combination of roleplaying game and a survival simulation.

As a member of one of the nine different cultures you'll enter a detailed and enchanting iron-age game world in which northern folklore, knowledge and way of life play an important part. The world of the game is highly realistic, rich with historical atmosphere and emphasized on survival in the harsh ancient wilderness.

A wide world with vast forests, mires and mountains to roam and watercourses to row is randomly and procedurally generated - and you can live off the land and explore it on very detailed level. Track animals, set traps, hunt with bows and spears, tan hides, go fishing, pick berries, cook food, sleep in a temporary shelter or build a log cottage, trade with the villagers, craft items, interact with cultures near and far, etc. The game is completely open-ended and you decide whether you wish to lead a life of a fisherman, a hermit searching for the peace, a brave adventurer, a rough hunter, a trapper or a tradesman.

Throughout the years, UnReal World has been praised for its depth, realism, atmosphere and immersion.

For downloads and more visit UrW homepage:
www.unrealworld.fi
It's free to play. Current version 3.18 (stable).

***

The very first version of UnReal World was released in 1992. The game was a lot different back then, but still featured many ideas and style of computer role-playing we're working on now. Over the past 22 years we've seen dozens of stable UrW releases, and ever since 1992 this game of "fenno-ugrian fantasy" has been in constant development -- and still there is no end in sight to perfecting the game.

Transcendence is a game of space combat and exploration. This single-player PC game is set in a vast and dangerous galaxy. Travel through dozens of randomly generated star systems and fight against hundreds of unique ship classes on an epic journey to the edge of Human Space.

 
Roam an open universe.
As you travel the galaxy in your ship, you will dock with myriad stations, each with its own story to tell.
Buy weapon and armor upgrades at the competing shops of the Corporate Hierarchy.
Defend agricultural stations from marauders and drive away warlords preying on undefended habitats.
Deal with the Black Market—if you can get an appropriate introduction.
Escort giant freighters at Korolov Shipping and defend them against the Charon Pirates.
Earn money and respect in gladiatorial combat at the Battle Arena Maximus.
Join the Commonwealth Militia in its battle against the Sung Slavers.
Help the Huari at their secret refuge.
Rise through the ranks of Admiral Decker's Fleet and face the archcannons of the Phobos-class dreadnought.

Battle over a hundred unique ship classes.
The further away from home you get, the deadlier the enemies become.
Even in the civilized areas of the New Beyond, you will face laser cannons and missiles from the Charon Pirates and various other marauders and warlords.
Beware the radiation weapons of the Sapiens; if they get past your shields you will have to decontaminate within minutes or die.
Particle beams and cyber attacks are the hallmark of the Sung, a fearsome sovereign that uses captured slaves for computing power.
If you can avoid the EMP weapons of the Dwarg masters, you may be able to convince some of their zoanthropes to follow you.
The asteroid mines of the neohuman Ferians will yield precious ores, but avoid their warrior ships and their plasma cannons.
Battle the self-upgrading drones of the Luminous AI, and use their cyber cubes against them.
Command a squadron of gunships in a desperate battle to defend Point Juno, the Commonwealth's last stronghold against the Ares Orthodoxy.

Join in an epic space opera.
Domina, a mysterious hyperintelligence, compels you to undertake a dangerous quest across the galaxy. But the deeper you travel the more you realize that your actions could determine the future of humanity.
The first part of the Domina & Oracus trilogy, The Stars of the Pilgrim, takes place almost entirely in Human Space. Part II will explore the rest of the galaxy and the domain of the Ancient Races.
Dozens of story arcs explore the richness and diversity of human civilization in the 25th century.
Travel through dozens of randomly generated star systems; no two game sessions are ever alike.
Unravel the mystery of the alien Iocrym and the quarantine they've placed on Human Space.

Add new ship classes, weapons, missions, or even entire adventures.
