What is IVAN?

Yet another roguelike game. IVAN is an abbreviation for “Iter Vehemens ad Necem” which means “Violent Road to Death” in Latin. IVAN is regarded as one of the more difficult roguelike games, and is also known for innovative game design and sarcastic backgrounds. IvanX is my merge of the latest CVS version of IVAN (which hasn’t been updated in years), LIVAN (which adds a lot of content) and IVAN 3D (which adds some nifty features). On top of that, I’ve done a lot of code restructuring, cleanups and bug fixing.

You can download IvanX, and it’s sourcecode, from SourceForge: http://sourceforge.net/projects/ivanx/

To find out more about IVAN and it’s derivatives, I recommend a visit to Attnam.
