Cave Santa is a coffeebreak roguelike


Cave Santa is one of the 1DRLs that instigated the 1DRL Challenge, December 2011. It was written in under 8 hours by oddmunds in Ruby using the then-current state of the engine for Svirfneblin.

Feature highlights include:

  • Online play over ssh
  • High score table
  • Realistic caves
  • Vibrant community

Online Play

Cave Santa is not online at the moment.

Cave Santa can be played online over ssh. The address is, the username and password is santa. The current state of the (as of December 2011) online play is a little bit buggy.

(You need to resize your window to 80x26 before you start the game. If you are using PuTTY or something similar, this means that you must resize the window before entering the username and password.)
