Complete version

This is an alpha release of the game. If you decide to purchase, you will have access to all future versions, including the final release. But the game is not completed yet, and some features might not be working. Please keep it in mind when purchasing.

Steam key is included, whichever method you use to buy the game.

Free ascii version

Exactly the same game as the commercial version, except without graphics and sound.

Source code

The source code of KeeperRL can be found here. The repository contains the latest development code. You can download it with the following command:

git clone https://github.com/miki151/keeperrl.git

 
Instructions on how to compile KeeperRL on Windows can be found here.

Please note that the source distribution doesn’t contain music and graphical tiles. The game works fine without them in ASCII mode. If you want the source code with the graphics you must purchase the game.

Donate to charity to get the game for free

I’m pleased to inform that you can also get a copy of KeeperRL by donating $15 to any wildlife charity. My suggestion is the Wildlife Conservation Society. You are also welcome to donate to animal rescue or your local animal shelter!

Please forward the confirmation email from the charity to miki@keeperrl.com, and I’ll promptly send you a Steam activation key or link to the standalone version.

So far $900 has been donated!

There are no other games out there like KeeperRL. The game is a unique mixture of management, levelling, crafting, constructing, exploring, adventure etc. […] The possibility of interacting with other’s players monumental dungeons turn KeeperRL into one of the most promising games I’ve found.

This game is amazing! It’s challenging, fun, unique, and exactly what you might expect it to be. For an early access game it’s incredible. And the thought that there’s more to come thrills me! I can’t wait to see how this awesome game will develop even more.

Any time I touch another race, I get bent over like a cheap, overworked sex worker. I love sucking at this game so much.
