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


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.


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



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


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

The Nethack Devs Think of Everything


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


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


Oooh wait, what’s this now?


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


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


New classes and campaign with a Lovecraft theme:


So, new game, almost!


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.


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

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


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.



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.


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)


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


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