Plutonium roguelike (PtRL) is a post-nuclear traditional ASCII roguelike, being written on Java by Yuri Buyanov (Digal).


  • Traditional ASCII interface.
  • Many outdoor maps: forests, plains, settlements, ruins, military bases. There will be dungeons too, of course.
  • Scifi roguelike specific interface: comfortable targetting system, informative FOV, etc.
  • XML format will be used to store information about items, creatures, and tiles.
  • Assymetric FOV: if you are standing behind the tree, you can see your enemies clearly, but it'll be hard for them to spot you. Maybe 90- or 180-degree FOV for monsters (and even for player) will be implemented.
  • Weapon modifications: silencers, scopes, etc.
  • Different close combat attacks: punches, kicks, combos.
  • Random quests, maybe.
  • Fully destructible enviroment.

And many other things...
