UnReal World, or UrW, is a unique graphical roguelike RPG taking place in the Far North long, long ago. It brings you a realistic game world rich with historical atmosphere in which northern folklore, knowledge and way of life play an important part. The atmosphere and game features are highly original and compelling. The world of the game is based on the ancient Finland in the late Iron Age.

The game looks rudimentary to me, but hey--it's free.
Edit: Odd, I can't get the link ( http://www.jmp.fi/smaarane/urw.html ) to work for the official game site.
I checked out the demo awhile back, and it's a very intersesting Survival type roguelike based in Iron Age Finland. So you'll have to start from scratch and try to survive the wilds, wild natives, and all that. Sure, you'll be doing a lot of chopping wood, foraging, hunting, etc, which can be fun but it's also a wide-open sandbox so you can go a-raiding villages & such too.
It's an unusual and interesting little indie. My biggest complaint is that the screen size is so small - another Squinting situation, which isn't unusual in old indie titles. If it had some hi-res support, instead of running in a relatively small window on my monitor, I may have purchased it.
But now that this version is free. . it's well worth the time delving in further. I'm in Roguelike heaven the last few months.
