2013 Roguelike Activity Survey
« on: January 30, 2014, 09:56:13 PM »
Hello all!

It's time to measure the activity of the roguelike players community for 2013!

Players: If you actively played a roguelike (4+ hours) and you don't see it in the list, you can suggest it *here* . A link to an existing player community will help your nominate to be included directly into the list.

Developers: This is not a popularity contest - No prizes will be awarded (not even a virtual medal) so, dear developer, DO NOT make great efforts for your game to "win". Let the players talk for themselves. :) (This doesn't mean you can't direct your players to this survey, but please refrain from using other methods to increase your "votes")

Take a look and thank you for your time!

Done, though it includes no mobile games other than Powder. I'm not sure there are any mobile roguelikes I play more than 4 hours / month (cause lengthy playtime is the opposite of what they're about) but they certainly are on the increase in my play portfolio.

Speaking of mobile roguelikes, could you add Hyperrogue? I've played that one quite a bit this year. I'm not sure about spending 1/200 of 2013 on it, but that seems like an arbitrary cutoff.

Added Hyperrogue based on the quantity of ratings and facebook likes

Also, if you could spread the info about the survey on the different roguelike communities, that'd be useful!

Thank you to all 18 who have answered so far... but we need MOAR participants!!!

This survey is mean to let us know, as of 2013, which are the REAL major roguelikes, apart from historic / personas bias.

I ask your help to please spread the word about this with all your fellow roguelike players!

I voted but would have included Incursion if it was an option!

Is there evidence of an active community of players around Incursion? I just looked up their website and it seems quite abandoned.

"Most" Incursion players maintain a candlelight vigil within the GoogleGroup page for the game---though many scattered to the winds in the wake of the final announcement that it was all likely never to see a proper update again.

Could you add Caves of Qud and unBrogue to the list?

I would say that there are a fair few players around but theres definitely not an organised community.

There are many games which I played a lot in 2013 (yup, may be +4h/month) and they are not on the list.
- DiabloRL
- ToME 2.3.5
- hengband
- Frozen Depths
- Omega
- Prime

But I'm not sure if all of them should be added ;)

Pending:
- ToME 2.3.5: Is there a community around this apart from Tome4?
