Added to my wishlist on the promise of co-op.

Maybe it's because I still crave the occasional smoke now and again, but can't tell you how cool it is that I can finally hit the hookah.

Skeletor, a Steam forum scan suggests that you can revert to a previous version in the betas tab? So you might not need to locate the save files at all.

I kind of feel like Qud is on the cusp of being a Major Roguelike. It's really come along, and the latest release does a lot to tie the world together.

Haha, for some reason, maybe it's because I grew up with the old turn-based Dungeon Crawler genre, I really can't get into the Etrian Odyssey games. They feel like synthetic versions of home-cooked meals. The design is competent, but they lack personality, innovation, or heart. There's something cynical in their construction and turns me off. So I'm hesitant to pick up an RL spinoff...

Cave Noire looks intriguing though. I'll give it a spin!

Aside from a couple of the Shiren games, I never took a particularly close look at what existed in the J-Rogue scene, perhaps because Shiren seemed to be pretty boilerplate. Should I try something else?

Couple exceptions: One-Way Heroics is ridiculously addictive, and a lot of people like Elona (I think it's interesting in a kitchen sink sort of way, but ultimately kinda dumb.)

Fantastic! I thought this project was dead.

Hey, that's awesome! I remember when this game was just a baby and look forward to playing it.

You know, I was recently replaying the old Spiderweb series, Exile (now remade as Avernum), and found myself wondering why it's so hard to find games in that vein. You'd think, with the excess of "creatives" these days, games like these would be bursting from the walls - huge world, minimalistic graphics, peppered with small quests for obsessives like me. Yet they're extremely rare.

So, Donuel, thank you for making this! I look forward to playing Epic!

Might I briefly mention the game Drox Operative as a possible source of inspiration? It's an interesting take on the 4x / RPG hybrid in that there are maybe 500 strategy elements in play at any given time (plague here, political scuffle there, new cult in this area, etc), all of which have an effect on the balance of power between factions, but the player cannot, nor are they expected to, singlehandedly ensure that all threats and tensions are managed. The actions the player takes DOES have an effect, but you get the sensation of shoring up a sand castle against the tide. Mind you, Drox Operative gets so absurdly busy that it ends up feeling like you're a secret agent inside a giant beehive, i.e., not the right fit for the job, but still I thought it was a cool idea, and maybe a fit for what you're doing.

Death Road to Canada
Rampage Knights

Both are great co-op romp-em stomp-em fun with a buddy or partner.
