|Official site of Fame|
Fame (formerly known as Untitled) is a classical, fantasy-themed roguelike based on 32×32 graphical tiles (ASCII mode also implemented).
- Both random-generated and predefined locations are present in the game
- Combines intuitive user interface (with drag&drop support in the inventory window) with flexibility and complexity known from the most famous roguelike games
- No character classes or professions - you can create your hero from scratch and only your actions decide who you become (however, some attributes can still be chosen at the beginning)
- Not based on any particular RPG system, realm or tile set
- No annoyances known from classic roguelikes (stat-draining monsters, time-is-running-out story, do-it-in-the-correct-order quests)
- Although the game is currently fully playable, the storyline is far from being completed, because the author doesn't really want to create yet another "save the world" game!
- Game is available in Polish and English
- The game is using its own scripting language, U
- No elves :-)
- Some of other features: full-text dialogs, spells, trade system, alchemy, traps, ranged weapons, mining, smithing
- Notable features planned, but not implemented so far: building, digging for treasures
