HyperRogue

  • HyperRogue
You are a lone adventurer in a strange, non-Euclidean world. Gather as much treasure as you can before the nasty monsters get you. Explore several different worlds, each with its own unique treasures, enemies, and terrain obstacles. Your quest is to find the legendary treasure, the Orbs of Yendor. Collect one of them to win! Or just ignore your quest and collect smaller treasures.

The twist is the unique, unusual geometry of the world: it is one of just few games which takes place on the hyperbolic plane. Witness a grid composed of hexagons and heptagons, straight lines which seem to be parallel, but then they diverge and never cross, triangles whose angles add up to less than 180 degrees, how extremely unlikely is it to reach the same place twice, and how the world seems to be rotated when you do return. All this matters for the gameplay. The game is inspired by the roguelike genre (although in a very minimalist way), works of M. C. Escher, and by puzzle games such as Deadly Rooms of Death.

HyperRogue can be played for free from its website. The Steam version adds online achievements, online leaderboards, trading cards, and convenience. Also, as the game is constantly updated, the Steam version includes the newest features, such as new lands with new mechanics, or new game modes -- see Gallery for the current differences.

While we have worked a lot on HyperRogue recently, we concentrated mostly on experimental features; for people interested in the classic, core non-Euclidean puzzle-roguelike gameplay, the most interesting thing is probably the lands, and there have been no new lands for some time. Version 11.3 includes three new lands, and has many other feature and improvements! See the blogpost for more details.

The latest version of HyperRogue let us play three-dimensional non-Euclidean worlds. However, there are more interesting geometries possible in three dimensions! See the blog post:

While this release does not change the gameplay in the main mode, it lets you experiment with new display modes, new geometries, and new game modes. HyperRogue takes place in a world where things such as rectangles and parallel lines do not exist. Lines will never run together forever "in parallel", the space between them will spawn new directions by itself, making our lines diverge. While the world of HyperRogue is presented as a flat thing, it is actually larger than anything Euclidean, in any...

The new update includes: three new lands, new game mode, new music, and some new features. See more on the blog: Have fun!

After an extremely long series of patch/preview versions (10.3a to 10.3v), it is time to release HyperRogue 10.4! While there are no new lands (they are planned for the next version), this release lets you get more out of the existing lands by changing the grid or presentation. There is also a new competitive mode focused on non-standard geometries! See more on the blog:
