Latest Alpha release of Illuminascii - Linux release v0.2
Huge letters loom in the darkness of the RNG. The sinister organisation of the ILLUMINASCII conspire to bring forth a New World Order throughout all the ascii land. As the lowly @ symbol, can you defeat their agents and overturn the conspiracy? Illuminascii is a new FPS with a ascii text based visual style that features randomly generated content and roguelike elements. Monsters, Weapons, Armor and Levels are all created with random characteristics. As a fan of both roguelike and FPS style games, this is a game that embodies not only the spirit of a roguelike, but also the aesthetics. The feel of a roguelike, in a modern engine. Illuminascii is the result of that idea - Taking the roguelike and merging it with an FPS.

Improved Level Generation

There's only going to be one user option in illuminascii - mouse sensitivity. Its going to be a giant red button for either "on" or "off"

This fps is difficult to play with a track pad. Hmm.
