The Allure package

[Tags: agpl, program]

This is an alpha release of Allure of the Stars, a near-future Sci-Fi roguelike and tactical squad game. The game is barely fun at this stage and not yet really Sci-Fi. See the wiki for design notes and contribute.

New in this release are screensaver game modes (AI vs AI), improved AI (can now climbs stairs, etc.), multiple, multi-floor staircases, multiple savefiles, configurable framerate and combat animations and more. Long term goals are high replayability and auto-balancing through procedural content generation and persistent content modification based on player behaviour.

The game is written using the LambdaHack roguelike game engine available at http://hackage.haskell.org/package/LambdaHack.

Allure of the Stars Build Status

This is an alpha release of Allure of the Stars, a near-future Sci-Fi roguelike and tactical squad game. Long-term goals are high replayability and auto-balancing through procedural content generation and persistent content modification based on player behaviour. The game is written in Haskell using the LambdaHack roguelike game engine.

Compilation and installation

The game is best compiled and installed via Cabal, which also takes care of all dependencies. The latest official version of the game can be downloaded automatically by Cabal from Hackage as follows

cabal install Allure

For a newer version, install a matching LambdaHack library snapshot from a development branch, download the game source from github and run cabal install from the main directory.

Compatibility notes

The current code was tested with GHC 7.6, but should also work with other GHC versions (see file .travis.yml for GHC 7.4 commands).

If you are using the curses or vty frontends, numerical keypad may not work correctly depending on the versions of curses, terminfo and terminal emulators. Selecting heroes via number keys or SHIFT-keypad keys is disabled with curses, because CTRL-keypad for running does not work there, so the numbers produced by the keypad have to be used. With vty on xterm, CTRL-direction keys seem to work OK, but on rxvt they do not. Vi keys (ykuhlbjn) should work everywhere regardless. Gtk works fine, too.

Testing and debugging

The Makefile contains many sample test commands. All that use the screensaver game modes (AI vs. AI) and the simplest stdout frontend are gathered in make test. Of these, travis runs the set contained in make test-travis on each push to the repo. Commands with prefix frontend run AI vs. AI games with the standard, user-friendly frontend. Commands with prefix peek set up a game mode where the player peeks into AI moves each time an AI actor dies or autosave kicks in. Run Allure --help to see a brief description of all debug options. Of these, --sniffIn and --sniffOut are very useful (though verbose and initially cryptic), for monitoring the traffic between clients and the server. Some options in config files may turn out useful too, though they mostly overlap with commandline options (and will be totally merged at some point).
