Rogue for Windows



Downloads Source Code Links

Rogue is the original 'roguelike game', designed to be played on a character-only screen.  This is the first version of my port of rogue to Windows.  There was an old DOS version floating around, but I couldn't find a native Windows version, so I compiled it myself.

If you don't know what a roguelike game is, you may want to check the out some roguelike pages in the Links section. Perhaps later I will include some more information on how to play Rogue on this page.

Port by Geoff Dunbar (

Based on rogue 5.3-clone, by Tim Stoehr and others.

Uses PDCurses v2.6 (

Source Code

I don't feel like packaging up the source code; it's just the standard rogue source and PD Curses, with a few small changes.  If you plan to do anything interesting my small changes won't help anyways.
