A roguelike game inspired by the literature of Jorge Borges, Umberto Eco & Neal Stephenson, and the games Europa Universalis and Dark Souls. URR aims to explore several philosophical and sociological issues that both arose during the sixteenth and seventeenth century (when the game is approximately set), and in the present day, whilst almost being a deep, complex and highly challenging roguelike. It explores questions of philosophical idealism, cryptography, linguistics and the writing and formation of the historical record, and will challenge players to hopefully think in ways and about themes that are rarely touched upon by games.

It looks totally and utterly amazing. I can't wait to see more features implemented, this is really shaping up to become a *great* roguelike.

Ah, I need to find a phrase other than "Thank you". Nevertheless, thanks a ton for those very kind words! Very glad you like it; it's not exactly like most roguelikes (no fantasy?! MINIMAL COMBAT?!) but I hope, before too long, that you're right!

The game is in ASCII just like one of my favourite games dwarf fortress,
but you manage to give it a great, simple and convincing look.
This is one of the games I am really looking forward to.

ps: sorry in advance for my english.

Thank you - I'm trying hard to make the graphics as clear as possible, whilst also making them look the best they can. Thanks a lot :) (and no problem, your english is perfectly good!)
