Epixx.org has released a beta version of its in-progress single-player roguelike Rogue's Tale as a free download for Windows (free registration required for play).

Rogue's Tale aims to offer a "brutally difficult" roguelike experience, and has been in development since 2009. In addition to a standalone client, a server version is also available, in the event that Epixx's servers experience downtime. A detailed player's guide is also available, and should prove quite helpful for new players.

The current Rogue's Tale beta version will remain available until the end of the month. Bug reports are welcomed at epixx.org.
