A downloadable game for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux

Streets of Rogue is a rogue-lite about player choice, freedom, and anarchic fun. The game takes inspiration from fast-paced top-down rogue-lites like Binding of Isaac and Nuclear Throne, and adds free-form, experimentation-driven, emergent gameplay elements of RPGs like Deus Ex.

Rather than taking place in a dungeon, the game is set in a functioning, procedurally generated city, where complex AI informs denizens from all walks of life, who are just trying to get by in their daily activities.

In order to progress, the player will need to accomplish specific mission goals in any way they see fit through use of their special character traits, items, and the environment.

  • Will you play as a soldier who shoots first and asks questions later?
  • A stealthy scientist who uses chloroform and tranquilizer darts to silently take down the opposition?
  • A genial bartender who can talk his way past the most intimidating of guards?
  • Or how about a hyper-intelligent gorilla, rescuing other caged gorillas to form a small mobilized gorilla army?

The Mighty Feature-List

  • Play the game YOUR way! Don't want to kill anybody? That's cool! Want to hack computers? Got ya covered!
  • Random world generation and TOTALLY EXTREME gameplay variety means you can play for 600 hours and not get bored! Seriously though, go outside!!!
  • Super-advanced artificial intelligence that won't put up with your crap! Outsmart these virtual humans and feel superior to your computer!
  • Play as over 40 types of characters (in the final version)! Bartender, scientist, hacker, gorilla — hey, your job is probably in there too!
  • Stupidly huge number of items (in the final version)! Shrink rays, hypnotizing devices, boomboxes, bear traps, food processors.. Oh, and guns too.
  • 2-Player cooperative mode lets you brutalize goons AND loneliness!
  • Lead a gang, free slaves, drink beer, gib ghosts, become a vampire, shrink people and stomp on them. The most insanely varied game ever made.

Hello Madguy unfortunately what you told me to do to reset the settings for streets of rogue did not work and I have tried everything. what should I do?

Hello Madguy I am writing about my recent issue with finding the locallow on my computer to delete my streets of rogue settings BUT I have found the locallow description through my recycling bin oddly enough and deleted the streets of rogue data settings. Thank you for all of the help you have given me and I cannot wait for the full version. Keep doing great things =)

I have a bug on 0.14.0, the accept button for the character selection doesn't work so does the leave and the random select.

Hey dude, I found a little bug in version 0.14.0. When I'm on the mission screen(when you talk to a person with an "M" above their head), I can't click on the "Accept" button, I have to manually press "E" to agree with the mission. That's it from me, thanks for the awesome game man.


Yup, fixed in the next build!


i think this idea good forest level map: it has bandit,ranger,animals,hunter,and wood cutter i think this might be good idea

Feed back button dosent work :P


Hello, great game, I love it, but when I launch the game it says "game.install.could_not_launch (game.install.no_executables_found)". I searched the game files there is no .exe file. When I tried to reinstall it, there was still no .exe. What can I do.


I ran into the same problem. I think it has something to do with my use of multiple drives, the Itch app is confused or soemthing. Find the zip file that was downloaded in the /downloads/ folder of the drive you setup for the game. When you unzip it, you'll see the EXE and the Data folder. Drag them over your the existing game files, and run the EXE. The Launch button isn't working from the Itch app though. =/


Yeah, sorry, the itch app is a little out of my jurisdiction. But you're having trouble, you can always get the game from http://streetsofrogue.com/sordownloads.html

How do i send the crash thing?

Send output_log.txt in the \StreetsOfRogue_Data directory to matt dot a dot dabrowski at gmail dot com

Amazing game! I cant wait until the full release :)

This game is awesome! I reall like the vampire and the hacker.

Hello. Madguy This may sound embarrassing but I have no System C: so is there any more alternatives and I have a question about future updates. If you released anymore updates or when the full game comes out will that mean my previous problem would be solved. Thanks bro I'll try to get the C: but thanks for the help and support.


If you don't have a C:, just change the first letter of the directory I posted to whatever your hard disk is called. For example, if your hard disk is E:, the directory would be E:\Users(your name)\AppData\LocalLow\Streets of Rogue\Streets of Rogue


I need help. I was looking at changing the screen resolution after turning the game off of full screen and then when I confirmed my changes to the screen resolution the game shrunk and there is NO way I can get back on. please help me soon as I would love to get back on to this awesome game.

Go to C:\Users(your name)\AppData\LocalLow\Streets of Rogue\Streets of Rogue and delete GameSettings.dat. AppData is a hidden folder, but it will work if you type it into the address bar. If this doesn't work, try deleting the other files in this folder as well.

nice game i can´t wait for the full release and until now i didn´t find any bug wich is nice :D

Got some bug! (0^0)

When you activate the bomb for the slave helmet, it explode you instead of the helmet.

Hope you can fix it!

Are you planning on a tablet/phone release too? From what I've seen of the controls I think it might be possible.


Maybe in the far future, but PC/Mac/Linux and the consoles is the focus right now

Cool. Thanks for the answer man!

how can i know Whats new????


I can't seem to get this game to download and install using the itch desktop app. After clicking the button to download and then intsall, it just doesn't register, only the install button shows (repeatedly). =/

Actually super excited to keep up with this game

Wish the devs all the best! I love the gorilla :)
