So here's the introduction thread!
I've been trying to get into rec.games.roguelikes.development for awhile, but due to e-mail problems, I haven't been able to participate... I personally prefer forums, so I've come here. I do hope most people migrate!
Anyway, I'm a 21 year old Computer Science student in Portugal, and I've been playing roguelikes for years, probably since I was 15 or so. I might stop for awhile, but I always come back to them sooner or later *grin*
I was mostly a nethack player for a long time, but now I don't find it that great (maybe just from not playing it that much anymore). I've enjoyed GearHead (1 and 2) a lot, and currently, my personal favourites are IVAN and ADOM. Unfortunately, IVAN is no longer being developed Sad
I enjoy new ones too, like AliensRL, HiveAwakening, WarpRogue, and LetterHunt for example!
As usual around these parts, I'm planning on developing a roguelike (go figure!). I've started on the "graphical engine", but since I know it's going to be a fair while for anything to become playable, I'm not going to talk about what I'm going to do Smiley
Anyway, that's it for me, I hope I'm not making a fool of myself and other people will introduce themselves Tongue
