(mature content)
Tales of Games StudiosRPG9.43 MBClick here to download

The Sewer Goblet is a new roguelike game created by Tale of Game's Studios, the same group which produced the recent b-ball hit Barkley Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden. Your objective is to storm a dungeon, reach the bottom level, retrieve the baby, and finally returning to the top floor. Treasure and equipment can be acquired to improve your chances of survival. Once you've reached the bottom floor to retrieve the baby, you will have to travel all the way up again in order to fully complete the mission.

Your progress is saved automatically when exiting the game using the escape key. Press the R key to rest, or tap space to access your inventory. Cast spells or discard inventory items using the Q key. Press W to collect treasure from the ground when standing over it, and eat snacks to reveal their magical properties. There are roughly twenty levels in total.

Space Funeral

A departure from his usual AGS offerings, Stephen's Space Funeral is a role-playing game created using the RPG Maker engine. The story is about a man named Phillip, who is on a journey to reach a place called the City of Forms.

You get to recruit only one travelling companion during the entire adventure, meaning that there is very little party management and individual character stats to worry about here. The exercise of grinding for experience is also kept to a minimum, and you can beat the final boss even before either of your party members reach level twenty or above.

The game takes about two hours to play from start to end, but you have to remind yourself to save often because there are no inns or checkpoints to record your progress for you. Should the random encounters becomes tedious over time, players can also use the auto option to have battles resolved for them automatically.

Spirit Engine, The

The Spirit Engine is a 2D, sidescrolling RPG game with a simple story and a straightforward, innovative real-time combat system. Written as an experimental reaction to old 16bit console RPGs, it took a little under two years to complete and was released in November 2003 as freeware under Natomic.

The game has three separate views that the player will interact with. The first interface that the player encounters is the main side-scrolling view. In this view, the player can see their three-person party in a two-dimensional environment, lead by a floating spirit. By clicking on either side of the spirit or using the arrow keys, the player can control the spirit and the party will follow behind. If the spirit is close enough to certain items or people, the party will either interact with them automatically, or the player can click on them to interact. If the spirit wanders too close to a group of enemies, the second interface will be activated.

The second interface is the combat interface. The spirit is immobile during combat, however the party itself comes into play. Using the buttons that appear at the start of combat, the player can direct their party to victory. The battle screen uses the same graphics view as the main side-scrolling view. The player can exit either side of the areas in the main side-scrolling view. Doing this activates the Map screen.

From the map screen, the player can select adjacent areas to travel to. The graphics of the map screens consist of small-scale representations of the party members on a backdrop which shows the world at large. Besides these three views, there are interfaces with which the player can customize their party.

N.IRPG0.25 MBClick here to download

Tarnadon is a simple roguelike game in which you wander between several large maps killing monsters and collecting other people to add to your party. Added party members will copy your attacks, but they are very weak and die easily.

Use the Z key to use your boomerang and the X key to fire a powerful magic attack. Magic attacks are limited, but can be replenished by picking up extras along the way. - oranda

John L. GrecoRPG1.08 MBClick here to download

TetRLs is a roguelike take on Alexey Pajitnov's classic puzzler, where players assume the role a prisoner forced to participate in a series of experiments inside the laboratory of a mad Soviet scientist. By pressing the D key a new block is dropped at the starting point of a room, and it is up to you to shuffle it downwards and arrange them so that there is enough space to place the next one.

Note that only capital letters are accepted as valid inputs in this game.

The Spirit Engine 2 is the follow up to the freeware game The Spirit Engine, first released in November 2003. Set in a new world, with new characters, new graphics and a rewritten game engine, TSE-2 improves upon the game experience of the original in every possible way.

The story is about three citizens who discovered their paths crossing in an act of charity one dark night, finding themselves burdened with the responsibilty of not only defending the nation but deciding whether to save civilization as they know it. TSE-2 offers an updated real-time combat system with greater control over characters, combat speed options and action synchronisation controls to make battles more tactical and more fun.

Tomb of the Aztecs
Iain CRPG0.74 MBClick here to download

Tomb of the Aztecs is a roguelike with raytraced graphics and real-time combat, a change from the usual turn-based tile movement employed by other RLs. You play an adventurer who is on a search for the Orb of Popocatepetl, rumored to be hidden somewhere inside the lowest level (sixth floor) of the legendary warrior's tomb.

There are no items, weapons or armor to pick up, other than ammunition for your fireball cannon stored inside treasure chests. You can regain some health by walking over a chest and plundering its contents. The save function is accessible by pressing the escape key and bringing up a pause menu, although players will always resume their journey from the starting position of a level immediately after restoring a save game.

Trapdoor Below
TelcharRPG4.96 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Inspired by Linley's Dungeon Crawl, Telchar's Trapdoor Below is a roguelike game that features a much simplified ruleset, uncomplicated controls, and the usual random dungeon generator that ensures every new adventure plays differently from the last. There are still plenty of classes to choose from as your starting profession, and while items are in abundance throughout the dungeon you will still occasionally struggle to find food for consumption and self-preservation.

Note that the game doesn't include a progress save function, so you will have to beat all twenty levels in one sitting if you harbor any intentions of defeating the demigod and completing the quest.

Wilfred, the Hero
Brandon Abley, Teo MathleinRPG40.2 MBClick here to download

Wilfred, the Hero is a rare breed of RPG Maker games with entirely original content, save for certain sound effects. A collaboration between Brandon Abley and Teo Mathlein, the story is basically about two buddies named Wilfred and Kyr-Stan on a quest to save their world and rid it of evil once and for all.

Of course, things are never simple especially when the hero has doubts about his destiny. This theme is explored frequently, and the accompanying soundtrack does a great job of setting each melancholic scene perfectly. Some may remember Teo as the artist responsible for Sunset Over Imdahl, which explains the Misao award it won for the best visual consistency category.

The main characters are easily some of the strangest, with Wilfred acting as the Pyramid Head wannabe and Kyr-Stan assuming the role of Lugaru reincarnated. There are no potions to gather, since Hit Points and Mana Points are restored completely after each battle.

This download only chronicles the first chapter.
