Allure of the Stars is a near-future Sci-Fi roguelike and tactical squad game in full 16-color 7-bit ASCII. Binaries and the game manual are available at the homepage, where you can also try the game out in the browser. ( --- It runs fastest on Chrome. Keyboard commands and savefiles are supported only on recent enough versions of browsers. Mouse should work everywhere.)

Not a single picture in this game. You have to imagine everything yourself, like with a book (a grown-up book, without pictures). Once you learn to imagine things, though, you can keep exploring and mastering the world and making up stories for a long time.

The game is written in Haskell using the LambdaHack roguelike game engine. Please see the changelog file for recent improvements and the issue tracker for short-term plans. Long-term goals are high replayability and auto-balancing through procedural content generation and persistent content modification based on player behaviour.

Also, making aliens bitterly regret the idea of plotting against Earth.
