A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

A silly wizard has opened a portal to the Nethervoid in his basement. You must clean it out.

Rogue Basement is a very simple roguelike. Its distinguishing features are:

* There is only one level, but there is still progression

* An experienced player can win in less than 10 minutes, but it still has a discovery process for new players

* A pretty decent soundtrack that changes with the environment

A full experience with the game will probably take between 15 and 45 minutes, depending on much of a completionist you are.

Gameplay notes for compo build:

You can melee monsters by walking into them. I somehow forgot to mention this in the manual.

Due to an amusing bug, the map renders 4 times. If you think the exit is inaccessible, you're probably just looking at a mirage.

POST-compo build differences:

  • Field of view (FOV)! This makes the game a lot more fun.
  • Log messages are much less confusing.
  • Rocks can no longer be thrown into walls.
  • Monsters no longer pick up gold. It's all for you!
