Ultimate ADOM: Caverns of Chaos is a sequel to the classic 1994 ADOM roguelike, which aims to deliver a modern reimagining of the genre while still retaining the original’s hardcore roguelike dungeon crawling gameplay.
Roguelike is a term that gets thrown about with abandon nowadays, but there was a time when it meant a very specific type of game. Ultimate ADOM: Caverns of Chaos looks set to harken back to the classic roguelike dungeon crawling formula of the original ADOM game while allowing for a little modernization.
The game takes place after the events of ADOM, where seven factions vie for control of the land following Andor Frakon’s defeat and deep in the caverns below the land ChAoS is stirring again. You’ll fight your way through procedurally generated isometric dungeons that you can toggle between the modern visuals or the traditional ASCII style at any time. In each playthrough your character class, race, gender and allegiance will be different, and as you play you’ll even be able to graft parts of your enemies to your body, turning you into a powerful abomination.
It looks like a great callback to the days of the classic roguelike dungeon crawler with infinitely replayable dungeons and a vast array of features that allow you to play the way you want. Sign up for the Alpha to enter the Caverns of Chaos early.
