Egoboo is a dungeon-crawling action-Role Playing game that has
some similarities with Nethack. Although its gameplay is very
different, its mood is intentionally similar. Like Nethack, it is
slightly quirky, and though it involves frightening monsters and
serious situations, it is very lighthearted and often humorous.
Egoboo's story centres around the capture of Lord Bishop, the
king of Bishopia. He was taken away by the evil Dracolich,
and brave adventurers have sought to rescue him. The Dracolich
hid in the Abyss, which is only accessible through secret Catacombs.
The Catacombs are sealed, however, and can only be unlocked by the
Legendary Sporks of Yore.
The game uses OpenGL graphics
and has randomly generated maps and customizable characters. The
objective of the project is to bring the fun and depth of roguelike
gameplay, kicking and screaming into the third dimension.
- 9 player character classes, each with its own abilities and
- Has its own scripting language
