Tales of Maj’Eyal (ToME) is a free open source software roguelike RPG, featuring tactical turn-based combat and advanced character building. Play as one of many unique races and classes in the lore-filled world of Eyal, exploring random dungeons, facing challenging battles, and developing characters with your own tailored mix of abilities and powers. With a modern graphical and customisable interface, intuitive mouse control, streamlined mechanics and deep, challenging combat, Tales of Maj’Eyal offers engaging roguelike gameplay for the 21st century.
The continent of Maj’Eyal lives in a relative peace. After millennia of war the orcs are extinct, the advanced races have allied together, and the evils of magic have been repressed. But there are still untamed forests, cursed lands, marauding bandits, sealed dungeons of undead, and whispers spread of hidden cults of mages. Some even say the orcs are not all dead, and muster their strength in dark places.
Tales of Maj’Eyal is a dungeon crawl featuring a customizable graphical interface that integrates classic roguelike keyboard commands with a mouse-driven interface. In a departure from many older roguelike games, Tales of Maj’Eyal has full-color graphics, can be played almost exclusively with the mouse, and despite permadeath the player can earn extra lives through various ways and leveling up.
Tales of Maj’Eyal emphasizes tactical turn-based combat and flexible player-controlled character development. Gameplay depends heavily on the player’s decisions and ability to develop and execute strategy. Play begins with the player selecting one of nine races and one of 25 classes (expandable with addons). Not all character choices are available at first; some must be unlocked through in-game progress, or through monetary donation or purchase.
The player must explore Eyal, a lore-filled world containing numerous dungeons and adversaries. The plot is non-linear, and success depends as much on character planning and storyline choices as it does on the player’s skill in defeating enemies in combat.
Minimum System Requirements:
