Wouldn't it make sens that if there are going to be separate categories that there should be separate voting for those categories?

Its about time that the Temple had its own roguelike polls at the end of the year! Someone do that. Now.
Plus it would liven the place up a bit around the end of the year, get some new publicity and get developers excited to release something so they have a chance of winning something. I can not compete against DF and DoD.

Best 7drl.
Best new RL.
Best RL.

  I do believe that the issue with Dredmor is varied. First people do not want their old school hobby projects compared to a project with a budget and a team. Also the old 'I hate grafix' and the insularity of a fringe hobby group wary of outsiders is adding fuel to the fire.
  But no worries. When the data is tabulated I'll do a nice best of in the various categories and everyone will be happy...in my dreams.

ToME 4 is sort of a general one guy thing in that DarkGod is pretty well king of the project and does the stuff, though he has grown a cadre of various helpers/contributors submitting patches, sounds, graphics, class breakdowns, specific vault designs, etc.  Though, I'd say the sheer volume and variety of things he continues to hash out pretty much puts it squarely on him deservedly...as otherwise the breakdown would get kind of sticky with closed source Roguelikes with no modding focus and no collaboration at all being the purist one-man-band.

I think Dredmor was the only roguelike made this year. So it's the winner also.

Woohoo, my roguelike is on the list :D
BTW Into the Dungeon was also made this year, although it is not finished yet. Expect an update over the holydays!

Is that really that bad?! I was thinking about puttin' a paypal donation link on my site for ITD++ ...

P.S. If the above was sarcasm... well it is hard to detect it on internet.

I don't know if Krice was serious here, but I could imagine. But I could also imagine he was just a little bit provocing. Or trolling. He's a half-troll.

I think donation requests are okay if you have put money into a game which is otherwise free, for example for paying artists: You paid them on your own, but if anybody is willing to support you with that, 'cause it's expensive, donations are welcome. Or you have a really good concept which convices people to support you for realising it. Or they just want to thank you.

Apparently, if the fan base is large enough, this can give the developer 1 or 2 months off their regular jobs, to work on the game (see the amount which was donated for ToME 4 -- over 3.000 EUR).

I'm surprised to hear this from you.  Does it really meet your stringent requirements?  You can kick items in it, I suppose...

NON

  Darren I do believe he was joking.

There are ways of telling if they are commercial.

Is it a forum about roguelike games or an imageboard? at least we need posters done in ASCII style :D

ps: Dredmor and Isaac in this year list and Diablo 3 next year ? :D
