    *Kickstarter* Last few hours on Kickstarter: Knights of Frontier Valley

    Kickstarter Project The last 24 hours are closing in fast... this is how it feels like running against the Kickstarter clock:

    [Let's Play] NetHack 3.6.1

    AND SO IT CAME TO PASS that I found myself re-reading KoboldLord's old Let's Play SporkHack thread. AND LO did it rekindle my interest in NetHack. Which pretty much catches us all up on relevant current events. If you have never read that thread, and if you like NetHack and its variants, that...

    Why are there so many roguelikes these days?

    It feels like lately, half the games I see as I browse various storefronts are roguelikes and roguelike-inspired games. How did that happen? I thought roguelikes were pretty niche games, what with the permadeath and cruel randomness and traditionally not very pleasing looks and often opague...

    [Space exploration] The Long Journey Home

    So, once upon a time there were these adventurous, multi-faceted space exploration adventure action games like Star Control 2, Starflight and the like. It's largely a dead genre now, though I do wish... Hold on, I'm getting an emergency broadcast from a bunch of humans who just completed the...

    💀 Necro [Steam] Dead Cells

    Just released on Early Access. It's a "roguelike Metroidvania" where you play a headless dude who just pushed the button on an ass kicking machine. Levels are randomly generated each run, though I have noted some structural similarities between runs. You get one life and can get an Estus...

    Anyone play Crawl: Stone Soup?

    Hello everyone! I think there's been threads about Crawl Stone Soup before, but I didn't see any recent ones. Anyone else here still play it? If you haven't, it's a pretty classic roguelike where you must get the fabulous orb of zot from the bottom of the dungeon. It has a sizable list...

    Let's chat about Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead

    Hi All, This game has had periodic threads here before, including at least a couple let's plays, but I've recently discovered it and didn't feel like resurrecting one of those. In a nutshell, it's a big sandbox-style roguelike, which generally has a zombie apocalypse theme. It can be found at...

    Roguelike / Nethack: WtF is the dog for?!

    My introduction to fantasy gaming (and PC gaming of any kind) was playing Rogue on a 386 desktop. Later, I discovered other Rogue-likes and I still come back to them every now and then; recently I started a Nethack game on my phone, playing a couple minutes every other day or so. My troglodyte...

    Deadnaut just popped up on Steam, and might be brilliant

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrT_eAWsyU8 So this game... it's a roguelike in space, where you play the controller for a crew of desperate ship-breakers trying to steal the treasures of the ancients from alien derelicts. Slaughter your expendable crew for fun and profit. The interface is...

    Roguelikes

    Any other roguelike fans out there? After I did not have time to invest in competitive online gaming anymore, I turned to roguelikes and I have been having the time of my life ever since. I have not been playing them for terribly long but thus far my favorite roguelike is Dungeon Crawl Stone...

    Sword of the Stars: The Pit -Download the Alpha Demo!

    Just a quick post about our new turn-based rpg in development, Sword of the Stars: The Pit. The Pit is a fun, fast, light-hearted action RPG, in the tradition of Rogue and other old school dungeon-diving games. We've been working on it for a few months, and the game is presently at the Alpha...

    Good roguelikes for iThings?

    Can anyone recommend a good roguelike for iPod/iPhone? I know there's Sword of Fargisl, which was a C64 game, and someone has probably ported nethack...

    [Shoot First] is not bad at all!

    I have searched and found no mention of Shoot First here. So I'm mentioning it. Nutshell: it's an action game where you wander a randomly-generated dungeon, dodging bullets, killing monsters, and grabbing loot. You level up, you find gear and guns, you rescue princesses, you fight bosses. There...

    [Let's Play] Desktop Dungeons!

    Hi everyone, and welcome to Let’s Play Desktop Dungeons! This is my second LP, my first being quite some time ago, dealing with Crawl. http://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?t=470276 Fair warning: I am a terrible Crawl player and did not get far at all. I am a slightly better Desktop Dungeons...

    Roguelikes and other simple adventure games.

    I am bored, I have an iMac, and I want to play a game to pass a little time. I have heard of Rogelike games but I don't know anything about them except that they are usually dungeon crawls. Any suggestions for scratching the adventure/rpg/loot-and-kill-stuff games? Thank you.:D

    Rogue Survivor

    I have discovered a new game, and it has taken over my life. http://roguesurvivor.blogspot.com/ Rogue Survivor is a roguelike zombie-apocalypse survival game. I found out about it on the Dwarf Fortress forums. Like that game, it's a creation of one programmer, and it's still in alpha. Also...

    [Let's play] Nethack: The life and (many, many) deaths of a Noob.

    Well, here goes! Time to share my hopefully amusing forays into the dungeons of Nethack with you guys. Some have recommended that I not play a wizard, due to how squishy they are. Still, I figure that at least I know how to play it, and if I die horribly... well, my pain is your joy. :D So...

    [Crawl] YAFAP!

    I don't know if that's the right acronym, but I finally managed to pull off an ascension in Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup tonight! Version 6.0, incidentally. I rolled this character as a Kobold Fire Elementalist. I chose fire elementalist solely to ensure that I could whore the crap out of...

    [Casual Roguelike] Desktop Dungeons

    As oxymoronic as the title sounds this actually is a roguelike that can be played in small chunks. Desktop Dungeons pretty much boils down to a one level rogue-like with unlocks of extra races/classes/themed levels that has me banging my head against a wall just like any good rogue-like should...

    [Roguelike] Prospector is awesome, you should play it!

    Not sure if it's been posted before, so I'll get right to the point: Prospector is cool, you should totally try it out. It's a sci-fi roguelike where you equip a scouting vessel and a crew and explore alien worlds. If Traveler or original series Star Trek was a roguelike, this would be it...
