Version: 2.8.2 (Beta)
Developer : Egoboo Development Team
Egoboo is an open source, cross-platform computer game. It’s a three-dimensional dungeon crawling adventure that borrows a lot of elements from the roguelike genre. Egoboo is still under development, but it is fully playable.
Egoboo could be called a lot of things; “ARPG”, “hack and slash”, or perhaps “rougelike”. It is an action-based adventure game with a unique mood and style. In Egoboo, you will slay hordes of foul monsters, explore many unusual locations, and get lots of really cool loot. Your ultimate quest is to save Lord Bishop, the king of the land, from the evil Dracolich. It is a difficult task, and you will have to face unbelievable danger to accomplish your goal.
The game has no world map. Instead, locations are selected from a list of available “modules”. When modules are finished, more are unlocked. Most modules are only accessible to saved characters, except starter modules that must be completed to create new characters with which to play the game.
Much of the game revolves around combat. There are several different types of weapons (crushing, slashing, etc.) that do different types of damage (e.g. cuts, piercings, fire, ice). Each type of weapon has its own advantages and disadvantages, and depending on the type of damage they deal, they may be more or less effective against certain monsters. There are also peaceful towns and cities character can enter. Currently there are only three: Zippy Village, Sandweg and the Capital City of Bishopia.
There are also special challenge modules only playable by certain character classes, like K’nife’s Heist, which is only available to Rogues. It is unlocked if the Rogue starter is completed with K’nife, an allied NPC, still living. Currently only co-operative play on a single machine is available. The developers hope to eventually add full online multiplayer support with multiple modes of play, including competitive game modes.
