Progressing towards the Steam release
ADOM has been greenlit after 27 days!
ADOM (Ancient Domains Of Mystery) is one of the most successful roguelike games ever created, boasting a brilliant mix of story, RPG, exploration, and intensely strategic and flexible combat.


ADOM (Ancient Domains Of Mystery) is one of the most successful roguelike games ever created, with downloads in the millions and many more every day. ADOM was the first roguelike to add a true role-playing experience to the roguelike genre, and boasts a brilliant mix of story, RPG, exploration, and intensely strategic and flexible combat. ADOM has been in development since 1994. In 2012 its development was revitalized with an immensely successful crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo (see the link to the bottom right), now allowing us to offer ADOM both with ASCII and graphical modes allowing you to choose freely, and hopefully in the future also both as Steam- and Non-Steam versions.

ADOM is primarily known for being the first roguelike to include vibrant towns, NPC dialog, and quests, but it offers more than just a rich story line in a complex fantasy world:
  • a huge game world with hundreds of locations such as towns, randomized dungeons, elemental temples, graveyards, ancient ruins, towers and other secrets
  • loads of races (dwarves, drakelings, mist elves, hurthlings, orcs, trolls, ratlings and many others) and even more classes (fighters, elementalists, assassins, chaos knights, duelists and much more) allowing for infinite play styles
  • hundreds of monsters and items, many with enhanced random features
  • a corruption system forcing you to balance lust for power with fear of damnation (corruptions slowly transform you into a vile monster but at the same time grant inhuman benefits - most of the time)
  • spells, prayers, mindcraft, alchemy, crafting and more
  • dozens of quests and branching story lines
  • numerous wildly different endings that might alter reality itself (simply drive Chaos away or slay a god or even become an immortal yourself, and others more)!


Deep in the mountainous ranges of the Drakalor Chain, Chaos has broken through into Ancardia and it's up to you to decide the fate of the entire realm. You control a single character with a wildy varying set of skills, talents, spells and other abilities. Customized equipment makes each race/class combination a very different experience. Explore a mostly randomized underworld, fight monsters, loot treasures and uncover the many secrets lurking in the world of Ancardia.

Join a generation of gamers in playing a remastered version of this classic rogue-like. Celebrating 20 years, Ancient Domains of Mystery (ADOM) is coming to Steam Greenlight in a big way.

With an overhaul of the graphics, music, new playable races and classes classes, over 400 monsters, tens of thousands of items, crafting, magic, religion, corruption and so much more, randomized dungeons, this reimagined version is one of the most in-depth rogue-likes on the planet.

So, come join us as we return to Ancardia and choose your fate.


ADOM on Steam will take ADOM gameplay to the next level by introducing the following features (among others):
  • an elaborate achievements system,
  • shared and global highscores,
  • extensive community functionality and
  • deluxe game features like an exploration mode, point-based character generation, various customization options and so much more.

This game made me a man. This game, forced me to actually think and stragetize every aspect, to be careful at every step, to win the game.

Then I found out that there was a better ending.

ADOM is already in beta on Steam for a closed circle of people (those who contributed with the appropriate levels during the crowdfunding campaign). And if you want to check out the latest non-steam version you can do so at

We'll be on Steam soon. Sadly real life sometimes is a bitch and 2015 particularly proves to be a bitchy year (like 2014 was... deaths of family members of the dev team, tons of work in real life, etc.).

We are very very close now.

And yes, we are perfectionists. Trying to improve ;-)
