A downloadable game for Windows

MoonRogue is a space themed, turn based puzzle game with some roguelike-ish elements, such as procedural level generation, items and permadeath.

Some hints:

  • Control your character with the arrow keys. Escape key exits to the menu.
  • Every move costs you oxygen, don't waste it!
  • You can break rocks and attack the enemies with your plasma torch!
  • Rocks often hide useful loot!
  • Collect O2 containers to restore your oxygen levels.
  • This is a turn-based game, you can move every turn, while the enemies move every second one. They chase you!
  • If an enemy plays it's turn next to your character, it attacks you, and you lose oxygen. Try to avoid that!

Created with Duality2D. All artwork original.

Hello! This game is Really good. although its lacking in visual game feel and graphics it makes up for in audio game feel, Great sound design, and Gameplay. But the part that I loved was the music. I couldn't find any form of contact with you aside from this comment and I was wondering if you would be willing to make music for a project I'm working on. if you are interested please contact me at rextgun@gmail.com and GL on your game development, music development, etc.
