What is a roguelike?

Roguelikes are a sub-genre of RPGs, where players journey on a dungeon crawl through procedurally generated levels, where every run is different. Most roguelikes involve the player starting with minimal equipment, without any special abilities or skills, but as they navigate the game world, they acquire new resources and abilities and level up their hero. 

 

However, death is permanent in most roguelikes. When the player character dies, they must start a new game - often called a “run” to highlight how frequent these restarts are in roguelike games. The layout of the game, the placement of monsters and items, and many other elements will change with each new run, making the game extremely replayable and different each time.

 

A short history of roguelikes

The pioneers - Rogue and NetHack - introduced gamers to a labyrinth of endless possibilities. With randomly generated dungeons and turn-based gameplay, they've carved out a niche that has endured the test of time, bridging generations of gamers. As the genre flourished, it inspired countless innovations, from Diablo to The Binding of Isaac, each contributing to the ever-evolving roguelike landscape.

 

The magic of roguelike games lies in their ability to reinvent themselves with every play. Every session begins a new journey, with uncharted territories, unfamiliar monsters, and unforeseen events. The promise of permanent death may seem daunting, but it breathes urgency and gravity into every decision. The thrill of navigating the unknown, the satisfaction of overcoming insurmountable odds, and the wonder of discovering new realms – this is the essence of roguelike games.

If you’re new to the genre, here are some great roguelike games to start your journey with:
