Is that the final version of the page?  I thought that was just a temporary version while the reviews were being worked on.  The old version with tabulated scores was much better, in my opinion.

I was a bit disappointed to realize it's a 3 point scale, as the first page of reviews seemed to vindicate my view that 7DRLs are a waste of time.
yeah I've never found the numbers attached to the reviews to be much use. A category for roguelikeness is understandable but doesn't really help people find a decent game. The written comments are much better feedback as a developer and I've always been thankful for that aspect of the reviews of any of my games.

As a reviewer, the 'roguelikeness' category was a slightly annoying impediment. I don't like assigning number values anyway, but that particular category irked me. Having high 'roguelikeness' doesn't mean that it's a better game or more fun to play. Bah!

As another reviewer, I agree - in fact I think all of the scoring categories are a bit ill-considered (my personal most-hated being 'scope') and the criteria a little vague.  This year I may forgo the official judging process and just try to write mini-reviews of as many games as possible.

Agreed! Tabulated FTW.

Disagreed. Do both because I like totally know you have the time.

P.S. Also while we are constructively criticising the review process I would like to see a review process that scores my games higher than everyone else's.
P.S.S Aren't the reviewers like a secret society or something, you guys are totally opening yourself up to bribes. On a completely unrelated note I just started a PayPal account....PM me, you know you want to.

corremn's Roguelikes. To admit defeat is to blaspheme against the Emperor.  Warhammer 40000 the Roguelike

There's a thread in the private forum about this. It looks like various people provided scripts to get that format in previous years.

So I've offered to help with that. Give it a try at least. Slash said he had the data in JSON format. I really think this needs some closure before this year's 7DRL starts.

Judges are just volunteers, any old idiot can do it*.  Also, I deeply resent the implication that I have, at any time, not been open to bribes.

*Provided you know the secret ceremonial handshake and have passed the sacred rite of Kahda-dorhn, of course.

I have important question about 7DRL's rules. I know that event is finished... But I found critical bug which make game impossible to pass. Can I fix this in 7DRL version exceptionally?

There aren't any fixed rules, but bug-fixing is encouraged.

Yes, you can fix game breaking bugs, leaving an original 7drl version for the history is encouraged
