Well, to each his own. Thanks for the welcome.

Ever notice how nobody can read anyone else's handwriting? That probably means that the Bill of Rights is a detailed order for party supplies, there is no mention of any Congress, and the president's only duty is "to blow the horn of cheese". I think that.

I figure that pessimism is the way to go. I'm either correct or pleasantly surprised.

I used to think that too, but it just leads to confirmation bias and makes you a more grumpy person for no real benefit.  Trust me on this one.
Agreed! I held the same attitude between about 13/14 and maybe 20/21 but when you always assume the worst it makes you gloomy and depressed. Now I tend to favour assumption of unpredictability - whatever is going to happen, it won't be what I'm expecting. ;D  We all find our own position that we're comfortable with, though.

In any case, welcome Enke.

I find that my firm knowledge of how terrible the world is makes me happy, it's sort of a carefree thing. I mean, damn it all to hell anyway, right? There's a certain freedom in knowing it's all to be flushed away soon anyway.

It's the death metal take on things. Fuck it. It's all fucked. So let's rock.

No worries. 24 page threads are bound to diverge.  ;)

    • The Temple of Torment
Hello everybody!

I'm a 23-year-old third year IT engineer student from Finland focusing on health informatics. I dreamed about developing my own roguelike but I was pretty much stuck with the C# that my university teaches. Then last July I found the Python tutorial in RogueBasin which looked easy even though I couldn't write a single line in Python. I started developing my own roguelike, The Temple of Torment, in last August. It helped quite a lot that I can program in C#.

I love fps, rpg and rts games on computer. Some rpgs that I like are Diablo 1-3, Baldur's Gate 1-2 and Planescape: Torment. It's clear that my roguelike is influenced a lot by those games.

Welcome. Many people here develop their own games. Roguelikes are not hands down my favorite games to play, but they are definitely my favorite to design.

Hi everyone!
I have been playing roguelikes for around 7 years now and I can easily say that it's my favourite genre. What introduced me to the genre was IVAN (great game btw for anyone who haven't tried it!) and from then I was hooked. Lately, I have been playing Angband the most, but I cycle through the major ones in different periods.

In addition I have been working on my own roguelike for maybe 4 years. I have been lurking on temple of the roguelike and r.g.r.* every now and then since I discovered roguelikes. Now, finally my game is very close to be finished and I'm planning to release it this year. So I have finally decided to "unlurk" :)

Greetings everyone. My name is James Lee McKigney and I am a Gamer who unfortunately has Autism, Asperger's and ADHD but I am also Sane and I want to be a good part of the community. I work hard, I help my family and I dabble in some game footage recording. But I also tend to be thoughtless at times but I try my best to be a good person.

Now for my personal history on the Roguelike I started playing when I obtained Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Red Rescue Team for Game Boy Advance. I also got several other Roguelikes but they're mostly like the Mystery Dungeon series. Then fast forward to a week ago, I got a copy of NetHack with the Vulture Graphic Interface and that is basically the drawing point to my opinion: It's like Arcade Chess and I love it. Seriously, I kept playing even though I kept screwing up and I am in love with the various aspects of said game and I am even thinking about donating to ADOM and buying various other games in order to build up my roguelike experience. I love every aspect of the games and I hope it will stay for years to come.

I promise to abide by the rules and to be fair and to treat everybody as if they were me. I vow to help other people at all times and I will do my best to be a good part of the community.

Hi,

I really like roguelikes, with my favourites being Castle of the Winds and Ragnarok (maybe Nethack will join that list one day if I eventually ascend a character). I'm currently working on a roguelike too! I will post some progress updates on here when it's in the first playable state.

-Mats.

Hello MrFlibble78 here.

I've been a long time lurker.

I've wanted to make a proper roguelike for ages and always check the forums for ideas & snippets of information.

I'm currently working on a roguelike for the GameJolt #lowrezjam and then hopefully something a bit bigger.
