Small Update
Huge letters loom in the darkness of the RNG. The sinister organisation of the ILLUMINASCII conspire to bring forth a New World Order throughout all the ascii land. As the lowly @ symbol, can you defeat their agents and overturn the conspiracy?

Illuminascii is a new FPS with a ascii text based visual style that features randomly generated content and roguelike / rpg elements. Monsters, weapons, armor, levels and cutscenes are all created with random characteristics.

The aesthetics of a roguelike, in a modern engine.

@moobilygoobily - Hi, Unfortunately the open alpha has now closed as it was no longer representative of the game, we are now in closed beta before the full release.

Is there anywhere I can get a demo of this game? I saw something about it on the roguelikes subreddit, I've been looking all over for it but can't find a thing. The IndieDB page appears to be dead, with no downloads available.
