Voyage to Farland is a tough-as-nails graphical roguelike game. What's a roguelike? It's a notoriously challenging dungeon crawler role playing game. This game is NOT a grindfest or a hack-n-slash game. It's turn-based and succeeding requires keen strategy and perseverance. But you're up to the task and you have what it takes to defeat the Spirit Witch and unlock the hardcore dungeon, The Path of No Return. If you make it to the end of THAT dungeon, a surprise is in store for you. Five themed dungeons. Tons of monster types with devious abilities. Voyage to Farland will keep you busy for months to come. Fun things you can do in Voyage to Farland: • get a pet robot you can level up • befriend an outcast monster that will help you fight • take on the challenge of the Strategy Dungeon • build weapon & shield enchantments and store gear in a warehouse

Version 2.2.6 of the Mystery Dungeon style roguelike game, Voyage to Farland, is out today!
This update fixes some bugs with the Toy Robot assembly and leveling mechanism and adds other improvements.


Don't be afraid to talk to the Toy Robot. It has its own unusual dialect as you can see, but if you befriend it, the Toy Robot will grow stronger and help you fight all the terrible monsters in the Bot Subplot dungeon and beyond.

Go to the Desura page, the developer blog or the forum to learn more about Voyage to Farland. See you in the dungeons!

I like Shiren so this sounds awesome but after trying it out to my horror I discovered that you can't move with vim keys and as far as I could see there was no way to remap movement keys!
Also is there any way to get a android version except by purchasing through the google play store? I'm not really able to use their payment processor or at least figuring out how to do so is too troublesome.

Yeah, sorry about the lack of vim key support. I'll keep it in mind for a future update. But give the arrow keys another try. I'd say you can get used to them (with D for diagonal), but then again I've been testing the game for years, so I'm biased :)

The Google play payment system is pretty restrictive, I've heard. Can you use a prepaid debit for it? How about Desura - are you set up to use Paypal?

Why on earth would you be so married to the vim keys that you can't make the change to the arrow keys? Maybe it's because I've been a Windows person and not a Linux* person, but if Linux makes you so restrictive you can't get used to such a small change as the usage of movement keys... argh!

*I realize I may be making a leap here, but I still think it's a justified leap.

No worries. XenoMiner looks pretty cool so I can understand.

Well, I did it again and this time it worked. Now you have a GPlay sale of VtF to me as well. Damn you for making such a fun game! :)

Thanks! If you get a chance, how about a review and/or rating. Here on Desura, someone from Taiwan dropped the average down with a rating of 1 (even though he/she hasn't played the game), and on Google play, the game still doesn't have many ratings.

Thanks again!

I'm mostly using Java lately since I moved to Android apps in 2009. VtF is a bit of a Frankenstein's Monster in that the core engine is in C (it started as a Nintendo DS homebrew project) and DevkitPro supported C/C++. For Win/Linux the game uses Java with the Slick2D library for the UI (I'm allergic to 3D libraries ;) and the engine is still in C. Java's pretty nice and has gotten quite speedy over the past decade.

I've dabbled a bit with Javascript for an experimental Chrome/HTML5 port of VtF I did last winter.

Too bad (for us, not for you :) ) that buying the PC version of VtF doesn't include the Android version of VtF. I'd been waiting for months for VtF to come from Android to PC and since it did, I've been wanting the Android version of it now :) . I actually went to buy it on Android from the Google store, but when I did buy it it wouldn't download for some reason. Ended up getting my refund for it. Lost a $1.50 sale from Google because they couldn't download it to me :( . Dunno if you see the sales/refunds on your end, but if you do, I'm the william.roeben(at)gmail.com sale/refund.

Yes, it would be cool to include the Android version somehow. A couple of months back Google changed the info we get for Gplay sales (around the time some tech news reports were criticizing them for handing over too much information to app developers :) so now we just get a zip code basically. PM me or send email to the VtF Gplay support address and we can discuss some ideas for future combined packaging of the PC/Android versions!

I will have to do that. Because I know that PC users with android tabbies would LOVE to play it on the go, and I was one of the android users that waited with bated breath for the PC version to come out! I've been playing it like crazy, as well as Chocobo's and Shiren's :) I suck at all three of them, but I will NOT stop trying!! :)
