[If you're looking for the Pony roguelike, go to novitiate.]


A graphical procedurally generated RPG inspired by Rogue and written in Rust.

This game is still in its early stages, but it is a complete game with increasing difficulty and new elements as you move deeper into the dungeon. Because everything is procedurally generated, it's a different game every time you play.
