Roguelegends: Dark Realms, is a dark fantasy, cosmic horror roguelike game with an extreme amount of procedural elements in which all intelligent life in the world will be wiped out in 1 year, unless the demon is vanquished.

It is inspired by the concepts behind  the brilliant game : Ultima Ratio Regum, and Dwarf Fortress, with the dark fantasy nature inspired directly by the humorous dark fantasy game Overlord, also inspired by the works of HP lovecraft and the table top game “Silent Legions”.

It is written in c++ with help from libtcod and is  still in development!

The focus of the game is on procedural mechanics and providing procedural exposition to go with it.

A great lets player named Everyonelovespirates also played it (Though his play through is 0.1.80 )

I had alot of fun playing this game and I like tabletop games, so this got an extra point for me. I really wanna see this continue.

Thanks for playing it! I appreciate that.  Though it looks like you didn't get the controls very well, im glad you enjoyed it. (Perhaps i need to make them clearer :P).

It's refreshing to play a classic rogue-like game. Here you get the ASCII-like graphics, and you also get the different ways to control the character on each turn and slight humour in the log messages. The enemies I encountered were actually surprisingly easy for what I expected, but then again it's good that you can explore without having to fret too much. I wonder if there's a way to change the size of the window, now it was very low by default.

I'd like to invite this game to take part in our game-making contest!

Can i have more details about this contest?

It's a yearly contest open for all independent developers and their games released in this year. You can register and enter here: www.thegdwc.com. A jury will pick winners in several categories after the entries close at the end of September.
