Madness is a coffeebreak roguelike


Madness is a Seven Day Roguelike written by hmp.

(from the developer)

Your task is simple: reach level 10 of the dungeon and defeat the evil Dungeon Master. Be careful - not all of what you see is real. And not all of what isn't real is harmless...

Madness is a simple dungeon crawler revolving around insanity, hallucinations (think Nethack hallucinations), and generally not trusting your own perception.

Unique/rare features

  • Visual effects based on the amount of remaining sanity the player possesses
  • Imaginary monsters, which may or may not harm you depending on current effects
