Axu is a graphical open-world roguelike, set on a distant prison colony planet. Inspired by Caves of Qud, Dwarf Fortress, ADOM, and IVAN.

Explore the procedurally-generated world, collect limbs to attach to your body, explore the depths and surface of the planet, find your way home, or embrace your exile. Each time you create a new game, the world will be created anew. Every playthrough will be different and challenging. Axu is in very early development, and is growing every day. Feedback is greatly appreciated!
