<h1>Roguelike Gallery</h1>
<div class="nav"><a href="/">RLGallery</a> -&gt; About</div>
<div class="content">
<p>The work of the Roguelike Gallery supports three main goals.</p>
<h2>Software Maintenance</h2>
<p>The Gallery cares for the source code of Rogue and its descendent games, modernizing the code, keeping it working as modern C compilers get stricter, and improving portability. Maintenance also includes the never-ending quest to fix bugs.</p>
<p>In pursuing this goal, the Gallery continues the work of the <a href="*/">Roguelike Restoration Project</a>.</p>
<h2>Public Play</h2>
<p>The Gallery also runs a public server allowing anyone to play the roguelike games.</p>
<p>By providing this service, the Gallery hopes to recover some of the gameplay environment in the university computer labs of the 1980's where Rogue was born. Similar projects include <a href=""></a>, the DCSS server network, and many other sites.</p>
<h2>Information Source</h2>
<p>The Gallery provides information about roguelike games through this Web site. This includes documentation and other articles about roguelike gameplay, history, or current events.</p>
<p>There are many other sources of roguelike information on the Internet. <a href="">RogueBasin</a> is one of the most well-known.</p>
