Dev blog aggregator
« on: January 28, 2014, 07:27:11 PM »
Do you know of any interesting blogs where people discuss/post about the development of their roguelikes? I have an aggregator which collects these sorts of blogs, so people can go to one place to find them, rather than having to stumble over them individually.

Link: Planet-RLDev.

The reason I do this, is that once something like this builds up momentum, then rather than having to go searching for interesting blogs or stumbling onto them through happenstance, people tend to approach me and ask me to add them.  At least that's what I've found with my Planet-MUDDev.

I've been posting devlogs for the development of Possession 2 on my blog.

And its sequel, simply titled Possession

Cheers. I've added your "roguelike" tag rss feed.  Are there going to be many non-development related posts under that tag?

Also check out http://roguebase.net/ which does something similar. The more, the merrier :)

That's great, when people complain mine doesn't have a wider scope, I can point them at yours.

I prune out blogs which just do release posts, or have too much off-topic content.  Ideally, it should be just posts with actual development work or ideas.

Edit: I've added a link to the site pointing them to roguebase as an alternate source of aggregated feeds.

I've finally started up a blog to cover development of my game. It's a 3d roguelike.

Blog is here:

Not planning on it. Everything under there so far has been development-related. I haven't posted reviews or anything.

Great idea for the aggregator too, I really enjoy reading others' posts. Thanks.

I've got a tag for roguelike stuff on my blog (typically reviews around 7dRL time) http://squidpony.com/tag/rogue-like/

and a category for my roguelike library (mostly release updates but also conceptual posts about what features are going in) http://squidpony.com/not-games/squidlib/

Hmm, you can tag stuff on blogs? Is that supported on Blogspot? And can you tag stuff retroactively, after you've posted it? I've got a blog which I post 7DRL progress on, but I also use it for other stuff too...

Yes, you can tag stuff on blogsplot and tag it retrospectively.  And feeds can be tag specific.

I've added the squidlib blog, as reviews are not on development related.  If it becomes primarily release notes, and lacks development content, will be removed.  Thanks.

Sorry for the delay, missed recent posts to this thread.

OK, here you go! :)

http://edkolis.blogspot.com/search/label/roguelikes

edit: Actually, I did tag one non-dev post as "roguelikes", but it was a discussion of the genre in relation to other genres of games. Is that OK, or should I make a specific "roguelike-dev" tag?

Here's my roguelike tag: https://http://zireael07.wordpress.com/category/roguelike/

I've got a comparison with Incursion in the works, do you want to see it?
