ADOM - One of the most successful roguelikes for Steam Greenlight


I was just given the heads up that ADOM (Ancient Domains Of Mystery), which is a roguelike RPG developed by Thomas Biskup and team is now up for votes through a Steam Greenlight campaign. ADOM was one of the most successful roguelikes ever created and was in development since 1994, and then a hugely successful IndieGogo campaign raising $90,169 in crowd funding in 2012. The original title has been downloaded in the millions boasting a brilliant mix of story, RPG, exploration, and intensely strategic and flexible combat.

Thanks to that campaign you can now play the remastered version with NotEye integration (tiles and ASCII; includes graphics, sound effects and music) for free! However Prerelease 24 and above will only be available to people who pledged at least $25 in the ADOM resurrection campaign. What's even more incredible is how many versions this game is available for, such as MS-DOS and Amiga, however do note that those versions are ASCII display only, with no graphics or music.

Remastered with new tilesets!

ASCII Version

Features : 
  • a huge game world with hundreds of locations such as towns, randomized dungeons, elemental temples, graveyards, ancient ruins, towers and other secrets 
  • loads of races (dwarves, drakelings, mist elves, hurthlings, orcs, trolls, ratlings and many others) and even more classes (fighters, elementalists, assassins, chaos knights, duelists and much more) allowing for infinite play styles 
  • hundreds of monsters and items, many with enhanced random features 
  • a corruption system forcing you to balance lust for power with fear of damnation (corruptions slowly transform you into a vile monster but at the same time grant inhuman benefits - most of the time) 
  • spells, prayers, mindcraft, alchemy, crafting and more 
  • dozens of quests and branching story lines 
  • numerous wildly different endings that might alter reality itself (simply drive Chaos away or slay a god or even become an immortal yourself, and others more)!


So come on roguelike fans, let's throw them a positive vote on Steam Greenlight!
