A Roguelike creation tutorial.
In this tutorial we will look at the process of making a really simple (yet really cool) RPG dungeon using ASCII art (letters, numbers and symbols [^$%&()”$:@~}{P<>] put together to make pictures).

The game will be inspired heavily by an old freeware ASCII RPG called Rogue that, despite being a bit basic on the graphics front, was perhaps one of the most fondly remembered games I’ve ever played… In fact one of the top on my list of games I’d love to have made…
It's for C++.
