Fenrir looks at Slashie then glances at the stack of pancakes.

Oh...

The great wolf wraps his massive jaws around the stack and snaps them shut. Pancake, syrup, and saliva drops from the corners of his mouth as he chews noisily. His voice is distorted by the sticky repast.

Somun cud make a rogueliche wiff Chuck Norrish ash a joke. Yah shtart the game an' it shays "Chuck Norrish won the game wishout you," or shumthin like dat.

Posted my introduction in the wrong thread, so here we go again ^^

Pretty new to the roguelike scene. Found Nethack on an indie games' website a year ago or so. Played a few other roguelikes as well, including DF. Took a hiatus from them for a while. Tried IVAN again a few days ago, started checking the communities behind roguelikes, hoping for updates to games. Thought I should join the community.

You guys seem like an awesome bunch, so I decided to start here :)

Oh, and my name? Goes way back, don't ponder on it too much ^^

Likewise welcomed you in said wrong thread, so all is well!

Welcome!   8)

Quite welcome and many thanks.   Somewhat at least, history is what we endeavor to make it.  Besides, I can use people's input as of the most recent post now that my plans have been muddled a tad...   :-\

A bit late, but still here to say "Welocme :)"

I've been busy with non-roguelike endeavours lately, but I'm switching between projects every few weeks ... if I could I'd explore iterated function systems for plant and monster construction and use that in both, RL and non-RL projects ... maybe some day  ;)

Hello fellow @'s! :D

My name is Mihael, I'm from Croatia, and I'm fairly new to roguelikes. Just started developing one for mobile phones, so we'll see how that goes... I love NetHack, and games with deep mechanics and an open world overall. I decided to do a mobile roguelike because I feel that it's a great platform for such game with not enough roguelikes to prove it.

Welcome bzizizi and enjoy yourself.  I would also recommend taking a look at the relatively lively iPhone Roguelike development scene in order to see how their approaches could be worked into your own.

Hello!

My name is Konstantin, I'm from Russia.
My first roguelike was PCMoria at early 90th, than Angband, than Nethack,
and only closer to the end of previous century I found out that
'root of all evil' is Rogue :). But I never won it.
I'm not going to list all roguelikes that I ever played, because I cant recall em all :)
There is some charm in roguelike games that can't be found
in any other genre. Probably that's why like them.
Two years ago I decided to try to make 7 days roguelike,
and still developing it :)
Core principles and features mutated several times over course of development,
but now everything seems to stabilize.
As most software developers I'm horrible artist :(
So, no tiles for now, only some unicode glyphs.

Hi,

I'm a 34yr old fulltime dad from the UK. And in my spare time and when I have an odd 5-10mins
I programme a graphical rogue like game which is a few months away from its first beta-release.
Some people from the Allegro programming forum pointed me this way, as a source of inspiration,
and to get to know the sort of people who might play my game.

So hello, and nice to meet you all.

Hey guys, I'm Ben, I'm an 18-year-old college student in Vermont. Been doing game art for years and will go into that professionally, but I've been learning C++ in order to be able to develop roguelikes. First one I played was Dwarf Fortress last summer, followed shortly by Nethack. Absolutely in love with the genre and hopefully will be able to contribute to it soon

Indeed, welcome Kaskad!  I would imagine your game art talents could come in handy to some Roguelikes as well.
