Omega is a rare roguelike game, designed to be played on a character-mode screen. I have compiled this version for Windows because (for whatever reason) I was unable to get the old DOS version working.
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 Omega on this page.
