Love deep sprawling roguelike RPGs? Check out The Doors of Trithius

By - | Views: 23,422

The Doors of Trithius from Jake Donkersgoed is a deep sprawling roguelike RPG currently in Early Access and it really looks worth a look. Sometime last year the developer added a Native Linux version too! For players who enjoy games like ADOM, Stoneshard, Tales of Maj'Eyal and anything similar you will probably feel quite at home with this one.

"The Doors of Trithius combines classic roguelike ruthlessness with the freedom and depth of an expansive, open-world RPG. Explore a vast, procedurally generated world that doesn't hold your hand. Here you'll need all your skill and strategic prowess to overcome the ancient dungeons, faction armies, and wandering behemoths found in the unpredictable and mysterious realm of Enalia."

Please be good, please be good, please be good!

Been a while since I played Tales of Maj'Eyal. After 300 or so hours and its frankly aged GUI, I moved on. But this... this could be the successor! Please be good.

I'm a little concerned about "a vast, procedurally generated world that doesn't hold your hand" because the former often means "shallow worldbuilding" and the latter "no effort to do signposting".

Like much as I love Caves of Qud, the procedurally generated towns are just remixes of each other without a lot of depth, so there's no point talking to anyone besides the questgiver and maybe a merchant. It's the designed locations like Grit Gate that are worth looking into. As to the latter, I'm fine with not having overlays that tell you exactly where to go to accomplish every little thing, but it's easy to go overboard and give *no* direction, which can be very frustrating.

I hope it doesn't take either of those too far, but having them as up-front selling points does make me concerned.
Skills like "Reading". Yay literacy! Well, it can be surprisingly useful in these dangerous places.
Without reading skill: OK, this door opens to a little cubicle, and things that go in are gone when you close the door and open it again. Probably a teleporter that can get me to the next section.
With reading skill: The sign says "Disintegrator".

Played an early version back en 2022 (version 4.7 i think), was great already, even if a bit empty and repetitive and unbalanced. It was about 10-15 hours to complete, at that time.

Feels like something inbetween Daggerfall and Stoneshard. Can be worst.
