Tower of Babel
Tower of Babel is a Seven Day Roguelike written by Jeff Lait.
You can get the most recent version here.
This provides a Windows executable versions and a 64bit Linux executable version along with the source for those brave enough to try and build it from scratch.
Welcome to @*TERM! This terminal program is pre-configured to connect to the Tower of Babel servers where you can play roguelikes from all alternate universes!
Like all roguelike games, each game uses all the letters of the keyboard for commands. However, as only the lowercase a-z keys are compatible among all parallel world character encodings, they are the only that will work. Further, the mapping of each key depends on the standards set in the universe you connected to...
@*TERM includes the ability to remap keys using F1. When you learn the meaning of a key you can map it to mnemonics that make sense in your reality.
A 7DRL is supposed to be completely done at the end of the seven days. However, this should not mean one does not make small fixes.

Licensing the Simple DirectMedia Layer library The Simple DirectMedia Layer library is currently available under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL) version 2 or newer. This license allows you to link with the library in such a way that users can modify the library and have your application use the new version. The GNU LGPL license can be found online at: http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/lgpl.html To comply with this license, you must give prominent notice that you use the Simple DirectMedia Layer library, and that it is included under the terms of the LGPL license. You must include a copy of the LGPL license. You must also do one of the following: 1. Include the source code for the version of SDL that you link with, as well as the full source or object code to your application so that the user can relink your application, or 2. Include a written offer, valid for at least three years, to provide the materials listed in option 1, charging no more than the cost of providing this distribution, or 3. Make the materials listed in option 1 available from the same place that your application is available. The most common way to comply with the license is to dynamically link with SDL, and then include the SDL source code and appropriate notices with your application. Embedded Use: Personally, I don't have a problem with anybody statically linking SDL for use with embedded environments that don't already have an open development environment. (i.e. the users can't relink programs anyway) However, this does technically violate the LGPL, so be cautioned.
