Curses is a text-mode screen handling library originally written by Ken Arnold for Rogue. Since most roguelike games are text-mode and, well, roguelike, curses is often used in their development.

If you want to make a curses game available on Win32, you can use PDCurses. Unfortunately there are colour limitations in that setting - you won't get 256 colours.
