Change hurts so good in Tales of Maj’Eyal’s coming DLC

Change has certainly been a good thing for the long-running roguelike now known as Tales of Maj'Eyal (aka TOME). Once a mere Middle-earth tribute, it has warped and twisted itself until nearly unrecognisable. The next paid expansion for the game is taking that to new extremes. In the Forbidden Cults expansion - due on May 16th - you'll get to mutate your body, grow tentacles from god-knows-where,…

Roguelike Mega Collection Torrent Has 700+ Free Games

Free games are great and roguelikes are the best of all games, so a torrent containing more than 700 of the blighters is a lovely thing to discover on a Thursday morning. The collection is the work of 'foamed', a Reddit moderator and roguelike curator, and it's more than a big pile o' fun. As well as containing some of the greatest games ever made,…

Doom And Demonology: Tales Of Maj’Eyal DLC

Tales Of Maj'Eyal (TOME) is a proper roguelike rather than a roguelite or roguelike-like. I have nothing against Diet Roguelike but we're reaching the point at which the new FIFA might chuck in a perma-relegation mode and claim to have roguelike tendencies. The truth is, I'm chuffed that aspects of Rogue have infiltrated the wider world of gaming but sometimes I like to retreat back…

Feature: TOME is where the heart is

Tales Of Maj’Eyal review

TOME is a roguelike. It’s not a roguelikelike or a roguelite. It’s not a platform game with permadeath and procedural bits and pieces. It’s a top-down, tile-based RPG, with a variety of races and classes to master, and a mean streak wider than Rushmore Jefferson’s nostrils. You won’t have to squint at ASCII imagery or memorise a hundred key bindings to play it either –…

TOME Is Where The Heart Is: Happy New Roguelike

In 2013, I resolve to convince as many people as possible to play Roguelikes and I'll be particularly targeting those people who have never delved into the devious dungeons of '@' before. It's OK to admit that you've avoided them in the past because they look intimidating/crappy. TOME could be the gateway game you've been waiting for. It's a variant of one of the core…

Potions And Pitfalls: My Year In Roguelikes

It’s been a fantastic year for Roguelikes, with continued development of the stalwarts and plenty of releases that have toyed with the formula, sometimes reshaping it until it’s almost unrecognisable. I’ve even managed to have great roiling arguments with people about whether certain games should be called Roguelikes or not. That led to Roguelikelikes, which I am simple enough of mind to be pleased about.…
