A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Now on Steam, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch!

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 doctor 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 20 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.
  • 4-player local and 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.

This itch.io version acts as an extended demo.  Same gameplay as the full version, but with less content and fewer game modes.

just bought it on steam and i love it :)

How to open the console?


One of my favorite games. Definitely worth buying the full version on gog.com instead of Steam, though, for its DRM-freeness! Love the whimsicalness and the music especially - but everything about SOR has been charming enough to make it my second favorite game of all time!



I know everyone who found it doesen't want me to say it, but if you die on a run and you press Home Base, you actualy go to the home base and can play levels past 2-3 and have access to mutators.



dawg stfu

Mobile port please

Good Game !

i did and it is a very cool roguelike

Thank you

I bought the full game on gog, it's very worth the price. 10/10


I love the game! Me and a friend found it here, bought it on steam and we really enjoyed our time. The diversity of things you can do and game modifiers are just too good to miss out on. Great for laughs and giggles while also engaging some cool gameplay mechanics. 10/10

Anyone got the control manual for this game? I didn't pay any attention when I first saw it so I kinda have a difficult time playing this T_T

Game is really fun with the large amount of characters with various perks and abilities. It has a lot of replayability as every level is different. I love how polished the game is with the hits, and how fun it is fighting enemies. However it is a little confusing on how to convert people. Overall really fun finding new ways to defeat enemies and overcoming obstacles.


I have a problem when starting the game on the mac black screen sounds there is a cursor too pixel with what the beta worked calmly


I'm having trouble running the linux version. The issue that I'm having is that the 64-bit version just displays a black screen and then crashes, the 32 bit version seems to work fine but I think I might be experiencing some minor optimization issues with the 32-bit version. I read the troubleshooting guide but the only thing it seems to have is a link to a forum post for something completely unrelated that also seems to only work on Debian. I have Ubuntu and the terminal commands the post states to use don't work, the first one doesn't work because deb isn't a valid command on Ubuntu and gives me an error message saying that I don't have permissions and if I add sudo to give extra permissions, it states that "jessie-backports" isn't valid because it's not available in the sources.


After making a post about it on reddit, I've discovered what I believe to be what's causing the issue with the linux 64-bit version. Apparently, the 64-bit version has a problem with a library mismatch in the version of mono that it comes pre-packaged with.

For the one person who reads this, the new version fixed this issue.

So, before it said that it couldn't load, so I got the application. Now the screen is black, and I can't see anything. Can someone help?

Update: Now, as soon as I open it, the screen goes black, and Streets of Rogue closes.

Best game I've ever played honestly in my whole life.


e multuplayer offline??


Possibly the best game ever, get it now.


hopefully people in the future wont have to buy to play:(


You should know that games of this quality are not easy to make. Making games like these and putting them on store for free is basically wasting a lot of time for nothing.


LOL its free now.


Yeah but i mean the full version that's on Steam, where it doesn't insta-kills you when you get to a certain level



plis respect for the time and knowledge of creators, and men (or kid) find a job


How do i play with friends? can i use things like Hamacho or Radmin to host a remote lan match? or if parasec will work with it?

If you get the full version on steam you can play every level and do online coop

sería bueno que agreguen algunos personajes mas a la prueba gratuita, pero de todos modos sería menos lucrativo. pero en conclucion es un gran juego y se merece 5/5

can i play this with friends?


you can play with a friend. But not online i think.

You can if you buy the game on steam.


I managed to beat the game but ithink this game is amazing! Its just so much fun and i was disappointed when I beat the game. :( I don't have any money so i can't get the steam version :(((


i feel u man


You can always try to speedrun it 


I when I open the Mac version it doesn't work it says 

The application “StreetsOfRogueMac” can’t be opened.


u need to get the itch.io appication for it to work

hello i am having trouble playing this game on Linux Ubuntu 18.0.4 the game does as described in another users comment as it go's strait to a solid color screen with a large cursor i also saw the what the "solution" was for the problem i just have one problem i have no clue how to change the screen size as no window pops up to change the screen to windowed mode is there something im not seeing?

(1 edit) (+2)

do  you have the correct file location "~/.steam/debian-installation/steamapps/common/Streets of Rogue",  run the command ls[list directory] you should see

"StreetsOfRogueLinux_Data  StreetsOfRogueLinux.x86  StreetsOfRogueLinux.x86_64" of that run the command listed bellow "./StreetsOfRogueLinux.x86_64 -screen-fullscreen" 0

the first section selects the file(the game) and the second sets it to not full screen 

you should be prompted by the game,  asking if you want full screen, or not full screen when the game open

(1 edit) (+2)

it's in my downloads file because i got it off itch.io

if it isn't supposed to be there then pls tell me exaclty where to put it (i dont tend to do a lot of stuff in the console so extra clarity is appreciated) 


same problem, but what i did is i knew that it was just the setup settings screen so i put my mouse in the bottom middle of the screen and moved it up until the screen flashed and i heard a sound. that should be the done button. press that and you're ok


thx it works now


You are awesome! Thanks for this tip
