Adventure game

Single player adventure game (similar to Rogue) of dungeon exploration that runs on a wide variety of computer systems, with a variety of graphical and text interfaces all using the same game engine. The emphasis is on discovering the detail of the dungeon and not simply killing everything in sight - in fact, killing everything in sight is a good way to die quickly. Each game presents a different landscape - the random number generator provides an essentially unlimited number of variations of the dungeon and its denizens to be discovered by the player in one of a number of characters: you can pick your race, role, and gender.
