It is a very minimalistic roguelike. It concentrates on telling a simple story and engaging the user in simple tactical combat. It does not have, for example, any form of character advancement!
- Tactical combat. All attacks hit, all attacks to maximum damage. Randomness in combat is thus suppressed - positioning oneself with respect to enemies is essential
- Heavy on plot. A story is told. It is not just kill things for no reason.
- Quick to complete. You can likely win the game in your first play through. Fully exploring the game likely takes only an hour or three.
- Your character never advances in power. Or even regains hit points. Instead, during the game you can take over and play different characters.
