So what do you people think of JADE?  Looks like its going to be a doozy.  I hope it lives up to the hype I have seen for it.  Looking at what Thomas did to ADOM I think it will be a great roguelike.

It is the stereotypical genroguelike. I wish he can pull out the time to work on it this year; he is a busy guy and this is a big project, nothing that can be done by working 2 weeks per year

Yeah, I have been waiting to try Jade for about 4 years now when I first read about it.

4 years ago JADE was alone in the fight.

Now we have Incursion, Legerdemain, Elderlore, Dwarf Fortress, and other 2 invisible threats.

Which is nice for the genre, we cant wait forever :)

I know what you mean.  Me personally, I am looking forward to a completed, near completed, Dwarf Fortress, Incursion, Unangband, and some others.  These will be great games.  After reading about Legerdemain, I am going to have to try that one out too.  I may have to add this one to the list also.

There is enough variety in the genre that will keep me going for a long time.

Interesting to see what features v0.1 release will actually have.

I'm also pretty curious! I hate it when people say: "oh, yeah, and THAT secret, you KNOW?" ... no, I don't! And life was so much better when I didn't know that secret existed! *g*

I too am curious about these.  The more the merrier I say.  The more time I spend playing roguelikes the less money I spend on commercial games.  To which most aren't very interesting anymore, but thats another subject.

I believe GenRogue is not a roguelike anymore and Kornel is probably doing some commercial programming at the moment. I didn't like how his dreams of a next gen roguelike changed, but we have to remember that Kornel lives in Poland. It's poor country still in medieval stage of development so he is doing the right thing when going commercial.

I think there are "invisible" projects in general that just aren't advertised by whoever makes them.
