A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Now on Steam!

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 local and 4-player online coop modes lets you brutalize goons AND loneliness! Online mode currently available in the Steam version.
  • 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.

Hey for those people that downloaded this, can you send me MEGAsync Streets of Rogue (this one) download link? I'll appreciate it. :)

Eh Nevermind.. I believe that this is demo version. I seen the website... Aw shuck.

Great game, expecially when played with a friend.

Amazingly Fun!!

good game


this is good 

Cool snappy control .. Lots of details. Good Job Guys! Solid effort!

great game amazing its free really worth the dl here is my playthrough 



How do I use my special ability? I need to know the button. I think I may have missed the tutorial that showed me. 

begiinnin of each level is a tutorial


Hey, I know this is just a demo now and not the full version, but it's kind of annoying when the Main Menu button says "Are you sure you want to quit to the Main Menu? Your progress will be saved," and then doesn't save my progress. I was having a great run, and I would have tabbed out instead of exiting if I'd known it would delete it.

My main criticism is that a lot of the specialized actions such as hacking and lockpicking are nothing more than waiting to fill a bar. I think each of them should have different, more interactive ways of operating.

We made a team out of Ninjas and Vampire 10/10 would play again

Unzip the file and run streetsofrogue.exe?

Hi Madguy, 

I was just wondering, are you using this version as a demo, or are you keeping it on itch for a different reason?

It's essentially a good-sized demo at this point.

this is sick


I thought the combat would be more like Hotline Miami, but this is still extremely fun. The music gets old after a while though. It's the same track over and over again.


Favourite game ever, Thank you man, and are you really only one developer making this game because the time and effort put into this makes it more than a game, it makes it something you can share with your friends and thank you, you are my favourite most inspirational Developer in the gaming world and i also see you as a GREAT person away from the game.

Well that is certainly quite flattering, thank you very much!  Glad you're liking the game!

wow this game changed so much since i last saw it.

too bad i'll never be able to play it till it comes on console. since steam doesn't accept my payments. but keep up the good work!

What is not available in these free versions compared to the Steam version?

See here:


Oh nice~ :) Anyway, thanks for the great game. Gonna buy as soon as I have spare money. :D


Any chance of releasing the full version on itch.io? I wanna support  this site when I can.

Probably not, it makes use of a bunch of Steam features.

Well in that case I just bought it on Steam. Love the game so far.

Maybe try reinstalling the game and turning off your antivirus software before you run it.  Seems like files are being deleted.
