    • Z's Roguelike Stuff
I am a kind of person who has a new name in each community joined, unless wanting to use one of old names for a change. I think I have four personalities in roguelike communities. When I manage to reach the roguelike I am writing to a state in which I would be proud of it, I will probably create a new name, since "Z" is too short for a creator of a great roguelike. For now, you can see the results of my experiments on visual polymorphing _here_.

I hate Moria variants, but love most other roguelike stuff. From major roguelikes I like ADOM and Dungeon Crawl (Stone Soup), and I also recommend IVAN (a good quite new game which seems to get not enough attention in the community) and Mission Thunderbolt (this is quite old and dead and not well known, but very good IMO). (I won all of them.)

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

I'm Gamer_2k4, that one guy from r.g.r.d.  I don't play roguelikes much anymore, but I'm developing one called Labyrinth of Reptoran.  I also participated in the 7DRL challenge last year, and ended up writing a game called Magic Monsters.  I use C++ and PDCurses.

What? PERSONAL details?

Ok, I'm 18 years old and just finished my freshman year at Milwaukee School of Engineering, studying software engineering.  I got hooked on roguelikes maybe 10 years ago, when my friend introduced me to Moria.  I then proceeded to discover Angband, Nethack, and *gasp* ADOM.  Later, I found out about Gearhead and really liked it.  But, through all of that, I continued to think "I can make a better one."  So here I am, roguelike developing.

Heya folks.

I'm Chris Nestaamo of the great windy city of Chicago. I enjoy Dwarf Fortress and Incursion, mostly because their complexity awes me, although I've gotten hooked on Slash'EM, Dungeon Crawl, and ADOM for a little while.

I'm currently working on learning a programming language (Python, if it works out all right) so I can start working on a roguelike version of the greatest tabletop RPG I know, Fates Worse Than Death.

Might as well join in.

I've been lurking this and other RL sites for a few months after I realised I was obsessed with Rogue-likes. I've been in #rln for several weeks but figure it about time to show my face.

I'm working on a few projects and rogue-like-like games, and plan to create a proper RL or two after.
