Summary


Brogue is a rogue-like game that features an endless series of levels. Each level is randomly generated with its own boons, enemies, and features. The player starts play by picking one of 3 classes which grant aptitude to several different weapons. As the player levels up, they can branch out into new classes from the original 3 that grant new abilities and attribute bonuses. One wrong move can result in your death, in which case, it’s back to the beginning.
