Legerdemain is an epic and surreal CRPG (computer roleplaying game). It is written in Java and runs on PCs running Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Years in the making, Legerdemain takes place in a strange and cracked fantasy world called Phenomedom. You assume the role of an imprisoned magician seeking to learn the nature of your captivity. Along the way youíll uncover vast conspiracies, morbid secrets, and the secrets of ancient puzzles. Youíll likely slay a few thousand monsters along the way too.

Legerdemain draws heavily upon interactive fiction and Roguelike games to provide an experience focusing on story and depth of play. From interactive fiction we inherit elements of scene description, exploration of new environments, and conversation with the gameís inhabitants. From Roguelike games we derive a top-down two-dimensional perspective and numerous strategic elements. Legerdemainís glyph-based UI is also reminiscent of Roguelike games, but here we forego ASCII for the myriad and more modern conventions of Unicode.

Legerdemain includes:

  • hundreds of enemies
  • numerous towns and villages
  • hand-drawn world map
  • Canticle of the Onslaught: a three-hundred page cluebook
  • over one hundred NPCs
  • over 130,000 words of text
  • 200 hours of gameplay
  • runs on Mac, Windows, and Linux
