Albion is a graphical roguelike with an emphasis on accessibility while trying not to sacrifice complexity or depth.
In Albion you control a party of up to three different adventurers simultaneously. It is designed to be playable entirely with the mouse, but also supports plenty of keyboard commands for advanced players.
Albion is styled off 16-bit era RPGs, and attempts to be more than just an ASCII roguelike with graphical tiles replacing the characters. Tiles transition between each other, walls actually have height and all movement and other actions are animated.
Albion is still very much a work-in-progress, with many features either not present or only existing in a simplified form. Nevertheless it is currently playable, even if there's not a huge amount of variety so far.
