Hyperbolic Geometry

HyperRogue is so named because its geometry is hyperbolic rather than Euclidean (the case in most games) or spherical. In this kind of plane, there are an infinite number of lines parallel to a line and passing through a certain point and the further you go, more space fits in the same place.

If you don't know what exactly is hyperbolic geometry, try learn a little bit about it before playing the game:
