, Voyage to Farland
is a roguelike game designed to introduce old school gameplay to a wider audience by adding animated graphics and a simple control scheme. Voyage to Farland is "traditional" in the sense that it is turn-based, enforces permadeath and plays out on a grid as the original game Rogue does. But despite being turn-based, it plays at a fast pace giving the player a near platformer feel.
There are also a few more twists to the formula, including "roguelike social networking" or, in normal-speak, a rescue system where the player's gamer pals can come rescue him or her after they've been vanquished.
