New release: Legends of Yore

Legends of Yore is a simple point-and-click roguelike created in Java and playable in-browser, with links to download the game for iPhone and Android.

Although LoY is a roguelike, it features a basic, functional GUI and auto-mapping. Additionally, like roughly half of all indie RPGs (and 90% of indie roguelikes) currently in development, LoY uses Oryx’s spritesheets from the TIGSource Assemblee competition*.

LoY is still in development, with updates about new features and content posted on the developer’s blog. Currently, the game is playable past level 50, at which point “advanced” classes become unlocked. My initial impressions: it’s quite accessible, but it also feels very lightweight. I can’t comment on whether it gets deeper later on, however. Those curious should go ahead and give the game a try, as it’s presently free-to-play.

*A few use Oddball’s instead.
