Darkfire RPG is a free multiplayer online roleplaying game. It has many characteristics of a rogue-like game, yet not all of them. There is a tile-based graphical interface. To play the game, the windows client needs to be installed. Please visit the official website if you want to play.

Typically rogue-like game features

  • Rich gameplay with lots of stuff to explore.
  • Great freedom in character development: Decide what skills to learn and upgrade. Adjust your stats to match your favorite play style.
  • Tile-based map design. There are graphical tiles, but the engine is very much rogue-like.
  • Randomly generated monsters and loot.
  • The overall difficulty level is challenging.
  • Six character classes to choose from.

Game features that differ from rogue-likes

  • Graphical interface. The controls are easy to understand.
  • Multiplayer - so you can play with friends. In spite of this, the game feels very much like single player. Cooperative play is entirely optional.
  • Death imposes a penalty, but it is not permanent.
  • All maps are handmade, in order to have a game world full of lore and quests.
