VLarn

Codacy Badge DeepSourceA DeepSourceR


VLarn is a free roguelike dungeon crawl adventure game, similar in concept to Hack, Rogue, or Moria, but with a different philosophy, feel, and winning criteria.

Lineage

VLarn is an Ultra-Larn derivative, descended from Julian Olds' ULarn 1.6.3a, which is descended from David Richerby's, Josh Brandt's, and Josh Bressers' ULarn 1.5.4, which is descended from Phil Cordier's ULarn 2.0, which is descended from Noah Morgan's Larn 12, with James McNamara's patches.

Features

VLarn includes both a graphical tiled interface, as well as a classic ASCII text UI, with optional menu items for most commands.

Availability

VLarn is currently available for Unix, Windows, and Amiga systems.

Ports are currently in the works for Multics, Atari ST, and OpenVMS.

Like ULarn 1.6, VLarn is easily portable to different systems, with all system-dependent code isolated in separate modules.

History

VLarn is a direct descendant of Julian Olds' ULarn 1.6 branch.

Distribution

Issue Tracking

  • You may contact the VLarn maintainer, Jeffrey H. Johnson, via e-mail at <trnsz@pobox.com>, with bug reports or questions. Please include 'VLarn' in the Subject line.
