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 since 0.4.4 are the Main Menu and improved squad combat. If you use GHC 7.6.1 and gtk2hs compiles for you, please install the LambdaHack library manually, with 'cabal install LambdaHack -fgtk --reinstall'.

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.

Readme for Allure-0.4.6.5

Allure of the Stars

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 7.6.1, but probably works with GHC > 7.2. A few tweaks are needed to compile with 7.0.

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.
