Description
Release date: First release on 2015
Explore a unique RPG/metroidvania adventure based on the content of your computer.

AdventureOS is an 2.5D RPG/Metroidvania adventure based game that is entirely auto-generated by the content (folders and files) of your computer. Each room, object, enemy, puzzle, key, treasure, boss... Is actually an interpretation of the files you can find on the computer where the game is running, making each adventure as exciting as exclusive for each user.

  • Explore your computer in a fantasy Metroidvania like enviroment
  • Fight with more than 100 types of monsters and bosses
  • Find the treasures and rare items
  • Manage your inventory and your skill trees
  • Use the portal system to connect the important areas of your game
  • Master all the different weapons and elemental spells
  • Follow the storyline or play in sandbox mode
  • Immerse yourself into the culture of the "Filer" races
  • Create your own levels and adventures using your operative system files
  • Play side by side with a friend
  • Check your system's clock for special events and day/night cycles

Game mechanics

The castle is divided in segments, represented by the depth of the folder in relation to the others. The closest folders to the hard drive will be at level 1. Every new folder inside a previous one will be found at the next level from it.
To access upper levels you will need to learn special abilities such as double jumps, wall breaking, speed boost, super size and so on.

The game works like a complex Metroidvania where getting to new levels requires exploring previous rooms, fighting enemies and solving puzzles to keep going. Your main goal is to clean all the castle's rooms from the curse casted by the Intruder. To clean a room you must set all the NPCs free by killing the creatures that keep those NPCs inside them. Once you clean a room you don't have to clean it again. But watch out! if you miss one enemy you will have to start over the next time you visit it.

The skills must be acquired by earning experience inside previous levels. Every explored room gives a little more experience to the character, which will be invested on unlocking the required skills from a skill tree.

Fallen enemies will drop random items depending on the folder level, size, power and drop rate.
Items such as hoods, swords, books or shields will increase the character's stats and add element modifyers.

FAQ
How does the game analyze my computer? Is it safe?
The game will only index a folder when entered, and it only reads the information while being inside it. The game is not going to change any file except the ones inside the game folder.

What happens when some changes are made to the programs, files or directories of my computer?
AdventurOS will index the folder when entered. When some change has been made (only rooms that has been already visited) the player gets a message, something like "The castle has trembled, it seems like the Architect has made some changes" then you can visit those rooms again to update the map and clean the new area if needed.
