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 experimental multiplayer modes and a lot of gameplay changes induced by the engine overhaul. 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 Haskell roguelike game engine.

Allure of the Stars can be compiled using the cabal tool from the Allure package available at its Hackage page.
