Conglomerate 451 is a cyberpunk first-person dungeon crawler in an unhappy future

Conglomerate 451 is a first-person, turn-based dungeon crawler with an unusual twist: Instead of locking players into a fantasy-style swords-and-sorcery maze, it takes place in a futuristic cyberpunk world. It features roguelike elements, including randomized dungeons and missions, and character permadeath. And the Ghost Class battle clones sent by a shadowy government agency to crack down on sector 451 of Conglomerate City are actually the "good" guys who are doing your bidding.
