Traditional Roguelikes (Turn Based) / Re: TinyCurses v0.9 released!

So I can't figure this out from the site itself -- by 'on multiple platforms'  does this mean it's fully compatible with Windows?

Looks cool!

Man, that looks like fun. I drove from NOLA to Hot Springs AK last Spring. Are you going to go a little further south from New Orleans to get into some bayou country?

Definitely, time is plentiful, it's the little distractions and not keeping a steady pace on something that leads to things not getting done. I've heard that people overestimate what they can accomplish in a year and underestimate what they can do in 10 years.

As a side note, I've heard it said that to get really good at something usually takes about 10 years.

If you don't want to, or can't make a lot of money, I think the key is to cut expenses. You'd be surprised about how little money you really need, even in most large cities. Keep your income low enough, and off the books, and you don't even pay much in taxes.

Hi everyone,  my name is George Oliver and I'm from Seattle, USA. I found these forums through TIGSource and have read them for a while, and finally registered.

The roguelike world is really quite awesome.

I didn't see these sites mentioned:

Similarly with electronic games there's been an explosion of pen and paper games released by solo authors and small presses in the last few years. 1km1kt and IPR are good place to see what's available.

For playing on forums there are a ton of options, including:

Needless to say the amount of ideas in these rpgs for inspiring roguelike game systems is pretty much limitless.
