C:\raft is a very text heavy, no hold hands kind of game made by a fan of old roguelikes for other fans. Things are explained within dialog, tooltips, and in-game manuals. It is expected that players will at some point in time need to read the manuals to understand more complex mechanics so they may unlock new parts of the game. Still, it is an easily accessible and expansive experience, but it may not be the most welcoming to players new to the rogue genre. Within minutes you can already be collecting tons of loot, exploring your hard drive, and of course dying. The game features practically no story, but many ways to play, and its crafting experience is no more than a glorified fetch quest. There's plenty to sink time into, and its accessibility emphasizes an ability to play quickly, such as during a coffee break.
