Now this is the kind of idea I think is extremely cool. An ASCII-styled RPG called 'Stone Story' will come to Linux, come check out the trailer.


You can keep an eye on their progress here.

They have no actual release date set yet, so it's a "when it's done" approach, but they do fully plan a Linux version.

I'm keen to play it, as it's just so different. While I don't usually like ASCII-type games, this certainly looks unique and special.

About the game
In a realm of perpetual evil, a single stone could change everything. Stone Story is a western RPG where you don't control the main character directly. You tell it which items to wield and what location to explore and an artificial intelligence takes care of all the combat and looting. That doesn't mean this is an idle game. Potions and special abilities are maximized by good timing, while boss fights can require quick item swaps if their patterns change.

Liam, seems like you messed up the link - it's pointing to "https://www.gamingonlinux.com/articles/StoneStoryRPG.com"

This does look like an interesting game though! Will definitely keep this one in mind

Clever, clever. I am not wild about ASCII graphics, but this looks very good. I just hope it doesn't cost a huge amount...

oh lordy lordy! I used to throw down to ascii games on my commodore64. This is right up my alley and when it makes it to Linux I'm on board.

That's the big question for me as well. Playing it from the VT would be awesome!
