The developer of The Ground Gives Way [official site] describes the game as “a coffeebreak roguelike with a lot of stuff”. Having only started playing this morning, when the latest release came to my attention, I can’t vouch for the amount of stuff but I have been enjoying this clever ASCII dungeon crawler. The setup is as simple as the title suggests – you’re walking around minding your own business when the ground falls away and you land on your backside in a subterranean cavern system. There are monsters, there are loads of items to collect and there’s a hefty tutorial to teach you the rules. It’s free.
