Troubles with Iconic Life

The Troubles with Iconic Life was an adventure game I started working on during university. The player character is an icon living inside a computer world- sort of like a low-fi Tron. Your mission was to solve some sort of crisis by traveling through this world and playing a bunch of buggy minigames. In each …

There’s a new open source FreePascal scifi roguelike in town…

Well actually, it isn’t exactly new. After receiving a letter from ZeniMax, Kornel has shortened the name of this beloved game and released the source. If you have never played D*** the Roguelike before, now is a great time to give it a try.
