Welcome to @*TERM! This terminal program is pre-configured to connect to the Tower of Babel servers where you can play roguelikes from all alternate universes!

Like all roguelike games, each game uses all the letters of the keyboard for commands. However, as only the lowercase a-z keys are compatible among all parallel world character encodings, they are the only that will work. Further, the mapping of each key depends on the standards set in the universe you connected to...

@*TERM includes the ability to remap keys using F1. When you learn the meaning of a key you can map it to mnemonics that make sense in your reality.

Unique/rare features

  • Entirely randomized roguelike. Including key bindings.
  • I claim that despite that, it is still fun.

Versions and platforms

Tower of Babel is written in C++ and is available for Windows, Linux. Source code is provided so it may be ported to any platform with libtcod and SDL.
