Currently browsing:   Roguelike  RPG titles

The "granddaddy" of dungeon hack RPGs, Rogue has a long history that dates back to the 1970's. It was first released as a test application for UNIX, and quickly captured the imagination of popularity among system administrators and computer science students. It was such a popular "test" that enterprising UNIX admins and users distributed it, expanded it, imitated it, and ported it to their home computers.

The game's original concept was unique and rich enough that decades later, it has an entire genre of computer games named after it, commonly called "Roguelike Games", and today still attracts a loyal following and lively community and newsgroups. This collection is a tribute to classic Roguelike games-- games that truly stand the test of time, and in many respects are much deeper than recent dungeon-hacks (e.g. Diablo).
