Roguelike is a subgenre of role-playing video games, characterized by procedural level generation, turn-based gameplay, tile-based graphics, permanent death, and typically based on a high fantasy narrative setting. Roguelikes descend from the 1980 game Rogue, particularly mirroring Rogue's character- or sprite-based graphics, turn-based gameplay that gives the player the time to plan each move, permanent death and randomization. In more recent years, new variations of roguelikes incorporating other gameplay genres, thematic elements and graphical styles have become popular, and are sometimes called "roguelike-like", "rogue-lite" or "procedural death labyrinths" to reflect the variation from titles which mimic the gameplay of traditional roguelikes more faithfully.

Dungeons of Everchange is a game set in a fantasy universe, where the main protagonist descends into the maze to find and defeat the evil wyrm Belphegore. He needs to break through traps, countless enemies, monsters of all sorts and shapes, he needs to solve puzzles thrown before him, and somewhere deep underground to seek the lair of the main villain, and in glorious battle to defeat the dragon Belphegore. Or at least to die trying. The game itself contains a large number of potions, scrolls, books of magic, armors and weapons, that are generated by random algorithms, so every started game is different from past ones, and every game has a different environment and different equipment, which is there to help the player reaching the very heart of catacombs. Does the player takes on the role of a knight in shining armor who sows death at every turn, the thief who is trying to sneak part other enemies or the mighty wizard who calls supernatural powers to aid him in his quest to overcome the obstacles that are thrown before him, it only depends on the player and his style of play.
Yes it is.
