The newest version of SquidLib is live!
This version features a large bundle of new named colors, along with pallets for them. The new set includes all of the colors from The Traditional Colors Of Japan on wikipedia. Each of the series are included as an array for your use.
The SColorFactory class has been expanded with new options, including shortcut methods to get varying degrees of dimness/lightness of a given color. A demo for that functionality is live at the GitHub repository.
The colors in this image use the SColorFactory adjustment methods in the following order from left to right:
- desaturate [at 80%]
- [the original color]
The demo allows you to work with any of the preconfigured pallets and features a tooltip that tells you what method and color name are under the cursor during use.
Ancient Domains of Mystery is about to be back in active development, thanks to people like you and me!
One of the largest and most immersive roguelikes in existence, ADOM is an amazing combination of most elements the rpg genre has to offer. It has lots of monsters, loot, dungeons, character types, and even a story with multiple endings. Unfortunately is also has bugs and no graphics, but both of these are about to get fixed.
The Resurrect ADOM development project on indiegogo.com aims to pay for developer time to fix bugs, add graphics, and add content. Just three days into the 60 day funding period and fans of the decades old game have already pledged more than 25% of the total goal. Being someone who helped an already great game become greater gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside. If you haven’t yet contributed and would like a warm fuzzy in you, click on over and help out!
The campaign has featured on Rock, Paper, Shotgun, Adventures of a Newbie Roguelike Dev, and is trending like wildfire on reddit!

Want to have a convenient grid world display in Java?
Freshly streamlined, SquidLib is the successor to SquidGrid, MonoSpaceDisplay, and libjcsi. With three great display libraries as ancestors, SquidLib has the refinement and tools to make any text grid work easy.
This library is meant to be an answer to ncurses for Java Swing, but goes beyond the tools of ncurses.
Current features include:
- Place characters on grid arbitrarily
- Set foreground and background colors for each cell individually
- Place strings on grid arbitrarily
- Place blocks of characters on grid arbitrarily
- Dynamic resizing of grid
- Dynamic changing of font
- Arbitrary fonts stay monospaced
- Select specifically what characters must fit in the cells
SquidLib is under active development, so please add any comments or suggestions to the issues tracker on the GitHub site.
