Sphere is a roguelike focussed on exploration and tactical combat. It is set in a stellar ship graveyard, the junk ring.


Modular shipwreck generator

Ships are assembled from basic shapes and dynamically filled with rooms and objects for both randomness and consistent structure.

Immersive ship environments

Rooms drain of oxygen when the hull is damaged. Fires can start, spread and consume oxygen. Gravity can be switched on and off. Many objects you encounter have real functions, such as monitoring and power supply.

Complex combat system

Enemies, player characters and their equipment have a large range of strengths and weaknesses. Damage limbs, use cover, adjust your aim mode and perform special attacks and movement actions.


Graphics emulate classical ASCII games, but with some divergence: Menus and message text are not confirmed to a text grid, and the UI uses some sprites for icons and characters.


Sphere is in a very early stage of development, but already has an hour or two of content.
