A 7 day Roguelike in Clojure

by Mike Anderson


You are a talented young alchemist. You discover that the fabled Philosopher's 
Stone is hidden at the bottom of an old dungeon. What luck! All you have to do 
is descend and grab the stone before your rivals catch the scent. 

What could possibly go wrong?


If you just want to play the game, you can get the compiled .jar file here:

You should be able to run the file either by double clicking it or using the command java -jar alchemy.jar. You will need to have Java 1.6 or above installed.

Build instructions

Alchemy requires Maven to build (though you can probably get a simple project.clj to make it work with leiningen pretty easily)

The following command should produce a working build:

mvn install assembly:single

This will create an executable jar file (in the /target directory) that can be run with a command like:

java -jar alchemy-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT-jar-with-dependencies.jar
