What is your current favorite Roguelike? [Or all things roguelike]


#1876

On the opposite side of that spectrum, Sami and Errka, of UnReal World fame, posted a new greetings video if you are lucky and wise enough to subscribe for their game on Steam.

It’s just a relaxed chitchat that will warm anybody mildly interested about modem, bbs, being cool, hairy and hearing one of the most awesome and foreign sounding tongues in the world.


#1877

Nobody mentioned that Nethack 3.6.1 was released at the end of April?

Fucken CASUALS


#1878

I would’ve but the RNG rolled a “Cannot post about Nethack” on the very first floor of the QT3 dungeon.


#1879

Drop a parchment on an Elbereth tile and that limitation is removed

The Nethack Devs Think of Everything


#1880

That only works on the 3rd full moon after a total eclipse. Duh.

Aavak is doing a Cataclysm:DDA Let’s Play for anyone interested (I like Aavak - there isn’t a major new CDDA release or anything).

TOME on sale this date


#1882

Perhaps more importantly for many of us, the new DLC, Forbidden Cults, is out.


#1883

Oooh wait, what’s this now?


#1884

New DLC for one of the finest roguelikes ever made, is what.


#1885

LOL well, that much I gathered, I mean - WHAT is this now? New classes? New campaign?


#1886

New classes and campaign with a Lovecraft theme:


#1887

So, new game, almost!


#1888

Forbidden Cults = instabuy. I installed the add-on, rolled up a new character with a tentacle for a hand, and promptly got wiped out on the first floor. Time to head back for more.


#1889

TOME is an Adventure Construction Set too, isn’t it?

I’ve never looked into the T-engine side of it


#1890

Yes. The original campaign, and the orc campaign, are “modules” within it (large ones). There’s a ton of stuff on the Workshop page in steam. No small amount of it is additional content in some form or another.

#1892

Yeah Qud is currently $1 off, which is an all-time low! ;)

But as the man says, the price will go up when the game exits early access … which will probably be in 2019.


#1893

I was curious to check Cataclysm DDA again (best survival/sandbox ever) and my jaw dropped when I saw this:

It’s isometric! (plus a bunch of other little changes)


#1894

consider my jaw also dropped! time to jump back in!


#1895

QUD is great now with the variable start positions.
And that Cataclysm does look fab also.
