KeeperRL is an ambitious dungeon simulator with roguelike and RPG elements. Take the role of an evil wizard and study the methods of black magic. Equip your minions and explore the world, murder innocent villagers and burn their homes. Build your dungeon, lay traps and prepare for an assault of angry heroes.

When you control your minions the game changes into a classic roguelike, with turn-based and very tactical combat. You can also play as an adventurer and assault dungeons made by you or other players.

Roguelike mechanics
The world is simulated on a very detailed level. Creatures use equipment and consumable items. There are dozens of special items, spells, attributes and special attacks. You can cut off heads and limbs and blind or poison your enemies. If you're not careful with fire, you can burn an entire forest or even your own dungeon.

Large, procedurally generated maps
In your neighborhood you'll find castles, villages, other dungeons and special locations. Slay heroes, dragons and witches for their loot. Every game you play will be different.

Technology tree
Getting more and more powerful, you will pursue new technologies to aid your malicious plans. Research new spells, necromancy, alchemy and dozens of other techs.

Exchange maps with other players
Retire your dungeon and let other players continue playing on the same map, witnessing the destruction you've done and fighting with the forces that you created.

KeeperRL is an opensource project. You can find the source on Github:
