Version 0.11 (2002Sep17)
Umbra is an open-source computer role-playing game written in Python.
The world is randomly-generated for new play every time, but there is an eventual goal and storyline. It was heavily influenced by roguelike games, Alternate Reality, console RPGs, and the works of H.P. Lovecraft and Clark Ashton Smith.
You can also read my Design Notes, which lay out what the game is, why it is this way, and what’s coming for it.
Umbra is set after a Lovecraftian apocalypse – the ancient god Mogth has risen from ages of deathlike slumber, conquered the world, thrown down civilization, and now man huddles in primitive communities, scattered and dying out. You play a band of heroes who will attempt to free humanity!
