-unBrogue's updates shadow Brogue's updates on a delayed basis over on ASCII Dreams as the project that seems to have summoned him away from unAngband indefinitely---I understand them to be well received by the Brogue folks in general and the next update or so is supposed to be rather substantial to reclaim pace with Brogue proper.

But if it came down to focus, Brogue is certainly moreso in the spotlight.

-With the old sites long gone, there's no community for Tome 2.3.5 beyond folks scattered about and the one-some people trying to remake it in T-Engine 4 slowly these past several months.  Sort of like how there's almost certainly more nLarn players than Larn ones---but without fresh dev activity it shrivels.

I would have asked for IVAN to be included, but I didn't play it much last year.

- unBrogue: Is this popular?
Don't know, isn't the point of this poll to find out?

-unBrogue's updates shadow Brogue's updates on a delayed basis over on ASCII Dreams as the project that seems to have summoned him away from unAngband indefinitely---I understand them to be well received by the Brogue folks in general and the next update or so is supposed to be rather substantial to reclaim pace with Brogue proper.
Do you know for sure or are you speculating? Because my understanding was that unBrogue had been abandoned (and what a pity that is).

UnBrogue's fate is a presumption beget of not knowing about Doull specifically stating as much to the contrary on his blog---last update for it mentioned that it would be a fair bit of extra work/extra time until the next update in turn compared to the one's up to then as per my recollection.  Was there some update on the Brogue forums that I missed? Whereas UnAngband has had only utter silence on the blog for a looong time now.   :-\

What exactly does it mean to play a roguelike "4+ hours / month" in 2013? One interpretation is "48+ hours in 2013", and another one is "there was a month in 2013 where I played it 4+ hours".

Added unBrogue and Tome2.

Changed the hours thing.

The famous winner of the annual poll? But of course! :P
Fame (Untitled) - my game. Everything is a roguelike.

Thanks a lot! I didn't see Omega there, my bistake.

- ToME 2.3.5: Is there a community around this apart from Tome4?
Hm, I don't know. I don't play often in Tome4, but in the 2.3.5 often.

Hi there! I just signed up to ask whether or not The Binding of Isaac should be added to this list! It seems like it would fit in fine, given the variety of titles already in the poll.

Added.

We'll subclassify the titles later on.  Hardcore roguelike jihadists stay calm ;)
