HyperRogue II – a roguelike on the hyperbolic plane

I was directed to this game by a retweet by @haggismaths. It’s a roguelike (text-based explorey role-playing adventure game) which takes place on the hyperbolic plane. It’s a lot of fun. It’s hard to get your head round the fact that there’s a lot more stuff in between two lines in hyperbolic space than in Euclidean space, so it’s very hard to find your way back somewhere after it disappears over the horizon.
