Claustrophobia: The Downward Struggle is a graphical roguelike in development by The Indie Forge. (Neither the developer nor the game seem to have an official website–look to the end of the article for links.) I don’t think there’s a narrative premise, but there is a rather wordy feature list: Expansive Random Generation – Everything from […]

But wait–maybe you don’t know about the 7-Day Roguelike Challenge either! Let’s learn together: A Seven-​​Day Rogue­like (7DRL) is a rogue­like […]
