As a fan of non-ASCII glyphs and zoo-themed roguelikes, I was looking forward to trying Zoo Tycoon Roguelike (ZTRL)'s emoji interface.
ZTRL is distributed as python source code, requires Urwid for its console interface, and GNU Unifont. Upon doing so, I was only able to move haphazardly while blinking between walls. Building walls didn't seem to work, nor was I killed after running into traffic.
It's hard to recommend ZTRL in its current state, but I did enjoy its attempt to use emoji. Perhaps future 7DRLs will do so more successfully.
Zoo Tycoon Roguelike (python source) was developed by erlehmann.
