Cypress Tree Manor is a coffeebreak roguelike

This game was Nils Fagerburg's entry for the 2009 7DRL programming challenge. Refurbished in 2011, updated in 2012, now with more keys and less light!


Cypress Tree Manor is about not letting zombies eat your brain, delicious as it may be.

In the game you play a survivor in a zombie outbreak who is trying to get into a bunker hidden in the basement of Cypress Tree Manor. Unfortunately there is only room for one person in the bunker and there are a few other contenders.


  • Zombies!
  • Fragile weapons (and the floor isn't too solid either)
  • Smart (enough to occasionally win if you let them and they're lucky) rather dumb opponents
  • A really bad level generator (but fair now)
  • A dark basement that might kill you if you don't bring a flashlight
  • New numpad controls! (Requires non laptop keyboard. Or really big laptop keyboard.)
  • An (experimental) windows port
  • And more!
