The Chronicles Of Doryen (or TCOD) is a roguelike in development since 2006. The main objectives of TCOD are :

  • to push the visual limits of ASCII RPG.
  • to create a ASCII hack'n slash RPG accessible to casual players who are not used to the complex interfaces generally used in the roguelikes.

Some of the fancy features :

  • true color ASCII mode
  • real time

The base classes of TCOD are available under the BSD license in the Doryen library. Check the Doryen library homepage for more information.

The Doryen arena, pyromancer and The cave are sub-projects that experiment gameplay mechanisms for Tcod.
