Let's Build a Roguelike is an ebook that provides a comprehensive, step-by-step instruction manual on creating a roguelike game using the programming language FreeBasic. The ebook has been created using Wiki-On-A-Stick that should run on any operating system. As far as I know, this is the only freely available book that covers creating a roguelike from design to final product.

The zip file below includes the ebook along with all the source code in the ebook. The game is somewhat simplistic, but fully playable. The source code is open source, and can be used as a base to create your own game.
