"Describing SanctuaryRPG as a huge, hilarious and most honorable devourer of free time would be an understatement." [- Rock, Paper, Shotgun ]
"It’s got a very old-school vibe thanks to the ASCII graphics and UI, but the combat feels modern and intelligent." [- Destructoid ]
"Where Dwarf Fortress is impossibly huge, all-encompassing, and as approachable as a brick wall, SanctuaryRPG is accommodating, streamlined, funny, and engaging, even if you've never been able to stomach an ASCII game." [- PC Gamer ]
Set in a retro ASCII-art world, SanctuaryRPG is a humorous and strategic turn-based dungeon crawling adventure. Drawing heavy inspiration from both Roguelikes and Japanese RPGs, the game was meticulously designed to offer a truly compelling gameplay experience fused with a robust action-rpg inspired combat system. Black Edition builds upon the classic formula with all new procedurally generated artwork, as well as a plethora of areas to explore, races to experiment with, skills to master, and loot to collect. As a valiant hero or a dastardly villian, the fate of Sanctuary is in your hands.

I'm going to keep this short and sweet because you should get this game right now. SanctuaryRPG is an excellent callback and revitalization of the roguelike text-based RPG genre. The game sucks you in for hours on end with intense combat, top-notch music, interesting storytelling, quirky humor, and hours of engaging side activities that are actually useful. The ASCII graphics add a a great amount of charm to this game as it is a love letter to a past generation. The only real problem I have which stops me from giving this game a perfect 10 is that there are quite a few occurrences where you cannot make a choice in the main story so far. The game is an RPG, so I feel like there should be a bit more power to the player. Now if you'll excuse me, I got to go hunt for some potatoes.
SanctuaryRPG is a really good and funny Indie game which is based on RPG games. The graphics are not the best, but are perfect for this Indie game, mainly for its classic art style. The soundtrack is actually really good, making the game more intense and fun to play. The gameplay is excellent, making all the players have a good experience. The story is both great and also really humorous! I recommend this to all RPG gamers out there and also to those who like good stories in the game, because this one has one of the best and is also funny!
