  • Streets of Rogue

Streets of Rogue is a rogue-lite about player choice, freedom, and anarchic fun. The game takes inspiration from fast-paced top-down rogue-lites like Binding of Isaac and Nuclear Throne, and adds free-form, experimentation-driven, emergent gameplay elements of RPGs like Deus Ex.

Rather than taking place in a dungeon, the game is set in a functioning, procedurally generated city, where complex AI informs denizens from all walks of life, who are just trying to get by in their daily activities.

In order to progress, the player will need to accomplish specific mission goals in any way they see fit through use of their special character traits, items, and the environment.

  • Will you play as a soldier who shoots first and asks questions later?
  • A stealthy scientist who uses chloroform and tranquilizer darts to silently take down the opposition?
  • A genial bartender who can talk his way past the most intimidating of guards?
  • Or how about a hyper-intelligent gorilla, rescuing other caged gorillas to form a small mobilized gorilla army?

The Mighty Feature-List

  • Play the game YOUR way! Don’t want to kill anybody? That’s cool! Want to hack computers? Got ya covered!
  • Random world generation and TOTALLY EXTREME gameplay variety means you can play for 600 hours and not get bored! Seriously though, go outside!!!
  • Super-advanced artificial intelligence that won’t put up with your crap! Outsmart these virtual humans and feel superior to your computer!
  • Play as over 20 (and growing!) wildly different types of characters! Bartender, scientist, hacker, gorilla — hey, your job is probably in there too!
  • Stupidly huge variety of items! Shrink rays, hypnotizing devices, boomboxes, bear traps, food processors.. Oh, and guns too.
  • 4-Player online and local cooperative modes lets you brutalize goons AND loneliness!
  • Lead a gang, free slaves, drink beer, gib ghosts, become a vampire, shrink people and stomp on them. The most insanely varied game ever made.

Two years after release, and bug reports are still coming in! However, it's been four months since the previous update, and that's because it's taken that long to receive enough valid bug reports to fill an update. Which tells me that the bug count may be finally starting to dwindle! Sequel Progress For those just tuning in, I've been using these updates to provide little bits of info on the open-world Streets of Rogue sequel that's currently in development here at DogHelm Studios (i.e. my house...

This update marks a bit of a milestone: Just a week ago, Streets of Rogue celebrated its 4th birthday on Steam! That's an entire high school/college career! Since then, we've gone from version 20 all the way to version 94! In sequel news... I've recently added the ability for the player to place walls, floors and objects into the environment. This will likely be used to allow people to create their own home base(s), much like in other open world games such as Fallout 4, Valheim, Terraria, etc. I...

Here's another 60+ fixes for ya! As long as bugs exist, I'll keep fixing 'em, so keep those reports coming in! And in other news... So, how's that sequel coming? While I've still been spending most of my time working out the technical details involved with adapting Streets of Rogue's systems into a large open world (no small task, let me assure you), I did get a chance to implement a couple of new features. The first iteration of vehicles has been added to the game! No actual roads yet, but they...

One Off The List is our monthly list feature. Is there something you think doesn’t deserve to be on this list? Comment with your reasons why, and next month it may be struck off. Many of you are by now bathing in twinkling neon ravelights and swooning into the metal arms of Cyberpunk 2077‘s humourless unhunks, who stalk the streets of Night City like animatronic pizza restaurant mascots gone feral. That is fine. There are worse places to find oneself in the labyrinthine hell of video games. Pl...
