Tales of Maj'Eyal 1.0.0 aka "And the Sky Full of Stars"

The board is set, the pieces are moving.

Nearly three years ago I uttered those same words when releasing the first beta of ToME4.
Before that there were 20 closed alphas and since then 43 betas and 4 RC releases, all played and loved by an increasing number of players, now over ten thousand.
During all this time my goal has never changed: to build a game that is both deep and complex but also fun and as accessible as possible. I have never believed in grinding, and have in many cases gone against the "traditional roguelike way" and I have always done it with those goals in mind.
Today is payoff time! For three years I have worked extremely hard on this game because I fell in love with it and I am blessed because others did too: great, fun, nice people; some of which also helped in the making of the game; each in their own way. To them, and to all my players, I send a huge "Thanks, I love you girls and guys!"

Without further annoying chit-chat, and with immense pleasure, I give you: Tales of Maj'Eyal 1.0.0

Awesome sauce :)

Awesome sauce :)


I was in-game when it happened!

Game of the year 2012!!!!

Too bad you couldn't hold off and sweep 2013. Game 1 on Day 1!!! May Tome continue to live for many more decades, and bring even a tenth of the joy to others that it has brought to me, and, one can hope, you as well. Few people can have such an impact on so many people, and I can hope that you can feel glad to have that opportunity DarkGod. May your glory live through the ages!

And Congratulations!!!!

Awesomest roguelike ever!Great work DarkGod

Been waiting for this!

Nice! Strangely I was online when this happened ^^



Congratulations on reaching 1.0!


I have only been playing this game since B37, but it has progressed so much since then. This game is obviously the most played game by me EVER, and I've played many games for many long long hours, but none of them come close to this game. I haven't even gotten dreadfell on a serious note(Gone there a couple of times just to get killed easily) and it has TONS of replayability. I hope this game continues to grow and the community too. So, Thank You DarkGod and Congratulations for the Version 1.0.0 release!


Thanks for all your efforts, DarkGod. ToME is a truly inspirational game! I really hope it drives to even more successes in 2013 :)


Good job, DarkGod. ToME is a great game, and I'm glad you made it for us. Good luck with the Steam thing!


Keep up the excellent work!


TOME 2 was one of my favorites back in the day, and I have to admit that when the whole t-engine overhaul of it started I was skeptical of what was happening to a promising Angband variant. But now, seeing what it grew into, it has become one of my favorites -- of all games, not just roguelikes -- once again. Congratulations on 1.0 and fingers crossed for success on Steam... :)


Where is the promised Bunny Race and/or Class? Will that be 1.01?


Congratulations on the official 1.0 release! A lot has changed with roguelikes in the last 15 or so years, and I am so happy that you've made accessibility one of the major goals and achieved it while keeping the massive and interesting depth that defines the genre. Here's hoping that the Steam greenlight goes well and that the game explodes in the popularity that it so very much deserves!


Congratulations DarkGod, this is a great game, very different from TOME 2 I used to play, but certainely a better game nonetheless. I hope it will get the media coverage it deserves and a download place in Steam !

Congratulations buddy!

It's been a long and fun road, now time to take a few well earned weeks off ;) Ejony!

Hell Yeah

Awesome work, a true roguelike of new era! Thanks for making one of the most greatest game Ive ever played.

Congratulations from Poland!


Congratulations on reaching 1.0 still on 2012!
ToME 2 was one of the best roguelikes back then. ToME 4, or t-engine 4 is... almost something else, while still keeping some of its roguelike roots. It clearly took a lot of effort and the result is very addictive!

nicely done

congrats :) windows went from "WTF, this is broken" to smooth as butter. greaet job.

<3 <3 <3

It's been great fun watching this game grow and develop over the years. Props!

Major Milestone

Having played tome since its first incarnation in 1994, I give high praise to DarkGod. Thanks for sticking with it throughout the years.


Seriously, damn good job!


Glory to Dark God and Maj'Eyal! Happy New Year!


Congrats Dark God, and thanks for the awesome work!


you created an absolutely amazing (and addicting) game, countless nights has been sucked out of me thanks to TOME 4 (no regrets!). seriously good job and I wish you the best of luck in the future!

Truly the best

Congrats on making what is the best roguelike ever :)

I used to play this 24/7 back

I used to play this 24/7 back in the day... been a couple of months now though, and version 1.0 seems as good of a time to start playing again as any =)

Thanks for all your hard work!
ILY, bro
