Caves of Qud is a retro roguelike from Freehold Games, the same team behind Sproggiworld. In development for years now, it was just released on Steam last month and now features a graphical tileset, a big change from the original ASCII art.
It takes place in a bizarre, post-apocalyptic world set many hundreds or perhaps thousands of years in the future. We begin along the ragged edge of The Great Salt Desert, Moghra-yi. Charlie and Danielle must help the waterfarmers, who have been having trouble with their crops. Their only weapon is a steel sword, an iron will and a deeply troubling set of fantastical mutations.
Would you follow a leader with eyes behind his back? Dare you to meet a man-camel? Find out, in our Overview.
