Shadow of the Wyrm is a single-player, traditional roguelike. You play a shipwrecked adventurer, washed up on the shore of an island far from home. Recently monsters have returned to the world, and there are whispers about something ancient waking in the far north-west, a being of ruinous intelligence, a creature of fire and flame. A cold wind blows; there is chaos in the air.

Shadow of the Wyrm is an open-world fantasy roguelike in the style of ADOM and Omega. It was formerly known as Savage Lands.
