@ Necklace of the Eye

Current version: 8.4 (Oct 25, 2016) (download)




Necklace of the Eye (NotEye in short) is an frontend to modify the output of console and libtcod roguelikes. (That is, roguelikes which use one of two most popular methods to draw the stuff: system console (aka terminal or curses) or libtcod. Does not work with those which create their own ASCII displays.) It currently has, among others, the following features:

Who is using NotEye?

Several originally text-only games are using NotEye as its graphical engine. These include:

ADOM (Ancient Domains of Mystery), one of the classic major roguelikes, originally text-based only, is now using NotEye as its graphical engine! Playing ADOM (downloads) is recommended to witness the power of NotEye. Note that we are concentrating on the default tile display, so NotEye's other graphical modes, such as First Person Perspective, are hidden -- you have to enable them (press Ctrl+M to get the NotEye menu, xx to unable the unfinished features, then e.g. Ctrl+M mf to enable the first person perspective).

Hydra Slayer comes from the same author as NotEye. Hydra Slayer is a roguelike with a unique combat system based on mathematics, and it is included with NotEye -- just download the NotEye+Hydra Slayer package!

PRIME is a sci-fi roguelike. It is a variant of Zap'M, which is "the sci-fi NetHack". Whether you like NetHack or not, this game is definitely recommended! PRIME is updated less frequently than ADOM or Hydra Slayer.

Brogue is one of the most known and liked roguelikes, prized for its beautiful ASCII and wonderful tactical gameplay. I have created an unofficial NotEye port of Brogue -- get more information here.

I want to try it!

You can play any of the games above (for Brogue see here) , or try the NotEye Roguelike Bundle. This is a bundle which includes NotEye and several modern games which work with NotEye (DoomRL, old Brogue, Frozen Depths, Hydra Slayer, ChessRogue, Unstoppable, Toby the Trapper, Gruesome, Drakefire Chasm). Just download the bundle, run it, and select the game you want from menu!

If you are a developer, see the dev guide, and download the samples included in the NotEye package.
