LambdaRogue: The Book of Stars is a complete roguelike role playing game, with unique features and story, distinct atmosphere and feel, and a user-friendly, but traditional interface. LambdaRogue was created in 2006 by Mario Donick; the most recent version is 1.7, released in December 2018.
Find the Book of Stars and set mankind free in story mode, or fight Eris, the evil deity, in the shorter Coffeebreak mode — the choice is yours.
Story Mode is the original way to play LambdaRogue, with a large main quest in three chapters and many side quests. Embark on a long adventure to find the Book of Stars. Discover the history of Herbstwelt and redeem what is left of mankind.
Coffeebreak Mode is a more typical roguelike experience, without story and quests, and a straightforward goal: Go down the dungeon, deeper and deeper, until you reach the Core. Defeat Eris, the evil deity, to make life peaceful again for the people.
Four professions make for a varied game, every time you start, after just another stupid death or just for trying something new. Develop your talent by gaining experience (coffeebreak mode) or by fulfilling exclusive quests (story mode).
