↠ Roguelike. Not a roguelite. Inspired by the original Rogue.
↠ Minimal. Not a "kitchen sink" roguelike.
↠ Juicy. Lots of game-feel and animation.
↠ Simple controls. You can play "without having to overcome super convoluted controls with a million key commands."
↠ Coffeebreak playable. Aims to be "just big enough to make victories feel fun and worth it but short enough that losses don't feel like you've thrown away your afternoon."
I'm a solo developer and I've wanted to make a roguelike since I was a kid. Releasing this I'm fulfilling my dream! I grew up on Nethack and Rogue and lately I've been inspired by Patient Rogue by Watabou. You can find me on Twitter.
