Warning: this game has mature content that may be illegal to view in your jurisdiction.

Noxico is one of the first large-scale erotic roguelikes. It features an expansive overworld to explore, presented in glorious full color Unicode an extended graphical character set. It comes with a full soundtrack courtesy of ModArchive and is designed to be easily user-expansible.

Gameplay

As a hero sent to find a portal to the Demon World and close it, you wander the wilderness of Nox, visit its various towns, and explore its dungeons.

On the overworld, you can freely move from screen to screen to explore. In towns, you can mingle with the many colorful villagers, learn what they know, and if you feel like it, have sex with them. Between towns is the wilderness, where less amiable beings roam. You might also find a dungeon entrance, or some other special area...

Dungeons are generated upon first entry, and play more like classic Roguelikes would. Somewhere there's a special, probably unique item that you could make good use of.

Morphic unstability

Where the world generation and expansive overworld are inspired by Dwarf Fortress, one aspect in particular is specifically based on Corruption of Champions: you can change your character's body, both at will and involuntarily. Certain items, when used, will shift your physical appearance towards some goal, along with certain statistics. As the game's site says, "you want to be a little pony with a fox tail and demon wings? You damn well can."

A call for prose

Most of the code is basically there, if in an unfinished state. But an important part is missing, and that is raw prose. Dialogue, sex scenes, descriptions of things. If you've tried a recent build and think you're up to it, please contact Kawa about it through one of the many channels available.
