Rogue was sold commercially by ID Software and was available for a wide variety of platforms.
There are three versions of Rogue that run under DOS on a PC:
- The first was a direct port, of Rogue 3.6, which has no graphic options.
- The second one was a per-release of the commercial labeled 'Public Domain'.
- Finally, a port of Rogue 5.0.2 which has the CGA Splash screen show above.
The PC version of Rogue was copy protected, and if you pirated it, you would be killed, and your gravestone would say 'Killed by Copy Protection Mafia'.
The copy protection was easily defeated by Copy II PC.
