Voyage to Farland is a cartoonish but hardcore graphical roguelike inspired by the more brutal Japanese Mystery Dungeon games (think Shiren the Wanderer...) with a little Earthbound vibe thrown in and an art style influenced by Ren & Stimpy.

You are a wandering adventurer looking for your kidnapped sister. But to find her, you'll have to fight waves of strange monsters possessing even stranger powers including surly Nosferatus, walking Van de Graaff generators, sadistic cats on Catapults, evil Toy Robots and a strange creature called the Maskcad that removes its mask and sickens your character with its horrific visage. And that's just to name a few.

Along the way you will unlock hidden dungeons, including The Vial Trial, The Bot Subplot, and the ominously named Path of No Return. And never fear, eventually you'll even make it to "Farland".

Key Features:
• starter dungeon and 4 unlockable themed dungeons
• 4 NPCs you can recruit to help you fight
• rescue codes to save and be saved by other players
• mod the game with your own sprite sheets!

Fun things you can do in Voyage to Farland:
• get a pet robot you can level up
• befriend an outcast monster that will help you fight
• take on the challenge of the Strategy Dungeon
• build weapon & shield enchantments and store gear in a warehouse

Technical Features:
  • game save upon exit (but being "permadeath", you'll have to start over when your character is defeated)
  • movement & animated sprites in all 8 directions instead of being restricted to the cardinal directions
  • all equipped weapons & shields show unique overlay animations

Yes, Voyage to Farland is a tough-as-nails graphical roguelike game. But what's a roguelike, you ask? Most of you know - but for those who don't, it's a notoriously challenging dungeon crawler role playing game.

Fair warning: this game is NOT a grindfest or a hack-n-slash game. It's turn-based and succeeding requires keen strategy and perseverance. But you're up to the task and you have what it takes to defeat the Spirit Witch and unlock the hardcore dungeon, The Path of No Return. If you make it to the end of THAT dungeon, a surprise is in store for you. Five themed dungeons. Tons of monster types with devious abilities. Voyage to Farland will keep you busy for months to come.

I played this years ago on an android tablet. The mechanics are solid and it's a lot of fun, and the music is very quirky and unique. The graphics however need a lot of work from a professional artist / game designer. The UI and controls are clumsy too, and some keys mysteriously won't bind even though there are no conflicts shown. It does look a bit better than it used to, but is far from the polish it needs to appeal to a larger audience. I hope this game gets the TLC it needs beause it's got a lot of promise!

Somehow the game has a fresh look (funny graphic style). I kind of like it. Somehow I vote. And somehow I'm looking forward to it!

I hate the art design but love the concept (regardless of it being extremely derivative). Voting YES (though hesitantly so).

It looks like a decent game, challenging too. I'm just not sure if I want to play another traditional roguelike game anytime soon, but that's only personal preference.
