  • Outlook



  • py_cui 0.1.4
  • qiskit 0.34.2
  • numpy 1.20.3
  • antlr4-python3-runtime 4.10

However, these dependencies are installed automatically if you install Qrogue via pip.



  • Python 3.8
  • pip

For Linux/macOS you simply have to run

pip install qrogue

to install Qrogue in your current Python environment.

Afterwards you can launch the game simply by executing qrogue in the Python environment you installed Qrogue in.



Same as for Linux/macOS


  • py_cui.errors.PyCUIOutOfBoundsError

Should you ever encounter this error when starting the game please try to maximize the console you use for playing. This is because currently there is no automatic font size adaption so depending on your console settings a minimum width and height is required. Alternatively or if maximizing doesn't help you can also lower the font size of the console.

  • newer Python versions

Usually also Python 3.9 should perfectly work for playing Qrogue but testing is currently done for Python 3.8 so there is no official support yet for other versions. The same is true if you decide to manually install the dependencies; newer version will likely work but are not recommended. Python 3.10 is not yet supported due to changes in import locations.

We'd be very happy if you share any feedback with us, regardless whether you liked the game or not. Just send it via Email to with the subject "Qrogue Feedback". It would also be nice if you could add your user-data folder ("qrogue/QrogueData", for normal installations it can be found in your virtual environment's packages) with the log files. Thanks!

If you find a typo: In the title of the popup window you should find something like "{@abc}" where abc is the message id. Please do tell us the message id so we have an easier time fixing it. Thanks!
