Since I've been playing the new XCOM for the past two weeks, it'd also be good to see an episode on X@Com (maybe when its finished) or even the original X-Com (or UFO: Enemy Unknown, to give it its proper name) itself, since its basically a roguelike anyway (at least, it is the way I play it).

I think there's definitely room for a strategy vs. roguelikes cross over episode, perhaps talking about Conquest of Elysium 3 and/or Seven Cities of Gold (and Slashie's Expedition).

Great episode. Dwarf fortress originally got me into Roguelikes. I am also excited for a graphics and tile episode.

Very enjoyable podcast.

Tarn Adams is always good value, the guy just goes on and on whilst remaining both interesting and coherent - also very nicely interviewed, got a lot out of him in the available time.

The 'danger' with some of the podcasts he has done is that because he is very listenable, and has a lot to say, he can talk for hours about the same thing - but this struck a good balance.

Nice work, will make a concerted effort to go back through the archives  :)

We ended up chatting with him for 2 hours after the podcast  :)  But I had a set list of topics I wanted to discuss and wanted to be reasonably strict on time.  Our producer Ryan also did a nice job of trimming a few less on-topic bits.

  I recommend the Brogue Episode and the interview with its creator, Pender. I'd also like to recommend the Spelunky, Dredmore (gaslamp games) and Binding of Isaac episodes included the creator.

  The David Ploog interview was super wacky, but really cool if you dig Crawl.

  The infra arcana one was great too.

  Really they are all pretty good.

Will check them out  :)

Listened to the Caves of Qud one last night, really interesting - glad to see the brutally punishing character creation was by design - and reminded me that I should go play that again sometime.

For some reason I will feel happier now dying in a frozen tomb of my own making, knowing the designers wanted that to happen!

  Have you tried Frozen Depths then? A classic right there.

I just started listening to this podcast and I'm really enjoying it. I'm probably going to get FTL because of you.

Have you tried being wackier? Maybe sharing stores of most frustrating deaths and taking a shot of vodka at the end of every story? Or perhaps a break in the middle of the podcast where everyone gets kicked in the nuts?

Man. 50 eps of Roguelike Radio, that's quite an achievement. I'm proud to say I've listened to every single one of them. Looking forward to whatever your next ep covers. :)

  I've listened to them all as well. Some more than once, like the one I was on.
 
  I am going to try a few other podcasts to see if they don't suck. :-)

Grats on 50 episodes. I've become quite addicted to them with a 40 minute drive to work. Not missed a single one as of yet.

Thanks for all the work.



Shameless request: If you guys get a chance at some point, I'd love it if you could do an episode on algorithms and/or map design. Things like Cellular Automata, Perlin Noise, BSP, etc and your preferences. Maybe some games that have really stood out when it comes to map layout/design. Scrolling maps vs not. How many levels 'feel' nice. Persistent levels, world maps, city generation, etc. Something along those lines perhaps.

We've done an episode on Graphics and Tile Design with a few known artists, but it was quite long so we split it into two.  Here's the first half:

Expect the second half in the coming few days.  Lots of practical tips in here about both tile design and graphics implementation.

  Awesome Darren. I've been working on my pixel skills and have been looking to upgrade to a real graphics program, maybe a good tablet. I dunno if you talk about his stuff, hardware and software, but I'm glad for the treatment of this topic. It fits very nicely with my current hobby direction.

  It should be noted I'm so scattered in direction that just about anything would interest me. Ha!
