Huh, it ended up in the spam folder somehow. I've reinstated it.

There is nothing good in the nethack direction. Anything as "complex" or more so than nethack is also going to be bad. The whole idea of nethack is bad.

Dwarf Fortress is a counter example. I agree with your point in general, but there's a definite audience for crazy complex games.

Important fact learned this ep is that the French word for the @ symbol is 'arobase'.

I started to check older episodes of Roguelike Radio, and just found out that the first episode is missing from server. Is it possible to reupload it?

Sorry, had a wrong link on the blog post. It's fixed now!

Two new episodes recently:

Ep 136: MidBoss, a roguelike centred around possessing enemies
Ep 137: Procedural Generation in Game Design, a new book on PCG with various roguelike developers contributing

The reviews for this year's 7DRLs have been completed, and are published here:

http://roguetemple.com/7drl/2017/

There are 2+ reviews for over 80% of the 100 games released this year, with ratings on various factors. Personally I find Fun to be the most important :)

Well for that stuff you also have rules so it's not that random.

Depends on the game. In some games it feels like you win or lose based on what loot you find. In others it feels fairly balanced, but perhaps also less exciting. How you implement and constrain the randomness has a big impact on the game.

Not sure you got the point? It's not about random generation, it's about random mechanics. A weapon does 1d6 damage, you have a 80% chance to hit an enemy, loot is randomly generated from a table, an AI has a 1 in 5 chance of executing a certain action, etc.

This applies to all sorts of games, not just roguelikes, but for roguelikes it's quite important for tactical decision-making and the feeling of fairness.

I stopped reading the thread after a while because it got too exciting and I want to wait to play the game to find out more. Everything here sounds amazing!

So the Randomness ep got bumped in queue in favour of a new ep with Jeff Lait and I talking about How to Make a Traditional 7DRL: http://www.roguelikeradio.com/2017/02/episode-133-how-to-make-traditional-7drl.html

7DRL hype, woo!
