The Infected RL

What is The Infected RL?

The Infected RL is an ascii/2D open world survival horror roguelike game that is a cross between State of Decay and How to Survive.

What is a RL?

RL is an abbreviation for "Roguelike", which is usually described as a turn-based computer game with a strong focus on intricate gameplay and replayability, and an abstract world representation using ASCII-based display, as opposed to 3D graphics.

What platforms will The Infected RL be available for?

Though the game is being developed in Linux, the code and libraries used will be cross-platform.

What languages/libraries does it use?

Common Lisp (SBCL), Lispbuilder-SDL

When will it be done?

Well, that depends on what you mean by "done". At the moment it is a bit hard to say as this is a hobby and will only be worked on during my spare time. Though I will release a playable version when it gets to the pre-alpha development stage.
