A fully automatic run of the ambush scenario with decently effective use of explosives --- in particular, for illuminating opponents to be targeted with ordinary projectiles:


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. (allureofthestars.com/play --- 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.

I'd like to thank all people engaged in the giveaway event: the organizers and the hundreds of contestants and also those that didn't register, but vociferously participated in the festivities on various fora. If you didn't win, don't despair --- you are cordially invited to name the price of your choosing at Man-of-letters.itch.io and enjoy the game to its fullest. If you won, you rock and you are entitled to all future versions of the game (though not necessarily all DLCs), no matter how high the minimal price rises when the game exits Early Access (in a decade or so). Now let's go claim from the pesky aliens what is ours!

To be honest, but this will be epic game with some sprites in use. Forget this dwarf fortress tricks for the moment, and take a look.
