There's No Other Wayfarer

Jim spotted this over on Offworld and in his continuing attempt to stereotype my interests in gaming (in short: anything with ASCII, anything with intercourse, Kenickie), thought I should have a look at it. Wayfarer is a Rogue-like running online, constructed in some kind of programming language and with a cute semi-3D look to it. Which you can turn on and off if you're scared of perspective or something (the "Something" is likely to be a little lag. It's still in Alpha). I had an enjoyable stomp through a few randomly generated levels. Married to its retro-graphics, it's relatively stripped down in design (as far as I can see, there's no levels or classes and progression is based solely on equipment) it's an ideal game to experiment on if you've always been intrigued by Rogue-likes but letters scare you. Which does make you wonder how you read a website, but let's let that go. Fun. Play!
