SewerJacks is a coffeebreak roguelike


A game inspired by Jervis Johnson's tabletop fantasy football game, Blood Bowl(TM) and William King's Troll Slayer novels. This game was an attempt to convert the Blood Bowl rules into a roguelike. Hence combat is an unique experience for a roguelike, I.e working in teams to get combat assists, pushing enemies into walls, etc.

Take your failed Blood Bowl player down into the sewer depths and seek out fame and glory. Show those team selectors what they are missing. Team up with other ex-footballers to eradicate the filthy vermin found within or go it alone. Pit your skills against chainsaw wielding fanatics, goblin bombardiers, dark elf assassins and goblin-throwing trolls. Ruthlessly destroy the undead or take on the dwarfs, the choice is yours.
