About the game

[root@craft ~] man craft


Join our human adventurer on an adventure! Is this adventurer even a hero? Is he even actually an adventurer? Who cares? Not the Crafting Goddess Joann, apparently! All she wants is a slave to make crap for her, and that slave appears to be this poor soul. I guess now that he's been chosen by a trans-dimensional entity to do some kind of bidding he doesn't really have a choice of sorts.

At least there's some fun to be had as he traverses the dungeons generated from your old high-school reports and questionable collections.

Wait a second, did I just say old high-school reports?! They have value now?
You sure bet!

You'll have to delve deep into your hard drive's dungeons to create the list of items the goddess has bestowed upon you to create. All the dungeons are randomly generated from the files that you select on your hard drive. Bigger files create bigger dungeons and different file types determine the kinds of loot you can find in each. Items, recipes, and monsters have generated names with randomly selected comedic, and occasionally offensive, adjectives attached. Even the requirements to make the crafted items are random! And the quests? They're madlibbed spam emails from the creator's inbox, because what's more disgusting than having to read through your spam.

Who cares if any of this makes sense?! Obviously not the guy who developed the game!

C:\raft is a parody rogue-like made with original planned development time lasting a week in order to show a demo at TooManyGames 2014 in Philadelphia, PA. It has been expanded as a research project designed to balance a tedious experience into an enjoyable one.

You read it all, now get to crafting


*Not all screenshots represent an accuration depiction of the game in its final release state. Most I took while developing the game and I'm too lazy to update them. Don't worry, though, there's not much one can really change when making a rougelike.
