The game, which began life as a shareware ASCII roguelike with a fantasy slant, has evolved through its years (well, decades) of constant development, jumping from DOS to Windows and going from a D&D-inspired game to an experience set in ancient Finland.

It’ll be out on Steam on February 26, but you can try it now for free (it’ll be free on Steam, too UPDATE: Sorry, it’ll be $11, though it’s on sale for $9.34 at launch).
