Allure of the Stars is a free game. This means that the source code is available to be studied, modified, and distributed. Most projects look for help with testing, documentation, graphics, etc., as well.

Allure of the Stars is a near-future Sci-Fi roguelike and tactical squad game. Binaries and the game manual are available at the homepage, where you can also try the game out in the browser. ( Keyboard commands and savefiles are supported only on recent enough versions of browsers. Mouse should work everywhere.)

Not a single picture in this game. You have to imagine everything yourself, like with a book (a grown-up book, without pictures). Once you learn to imagine things, though, you can keep exploring and mastering the world and making up stories for a long time. The gameplay manual [1] may also help. Enjoy!
