Cogmind - An Early Access Modern Roguelike
« on: May 26, 2015, 11:15:14 AM »
Cogmind, an early access game, is a procedural generated world where your goal is to survive, use components from your fallen enemies to rebuild, and escape the place in which your trapped. Designed by Grid Sage Games, The game has an advance and modern UI system and is well on its way to paving a path for the modern roguelikes of today. It combines procedural generated worlds with a story of who you are, and why you exist. The game is no stranger to difficulty and it will test your ability to strategize and navigate the new world you find yourself in. I have had loads of fun with the game and am just a community member who would love to see others enjoy it all the same! The developer has worked extremely hard for the last 3 years to bring this game up to the standards he believes a community as dedicated as the roguelike one would enjoy. Hope to hear about everyone's attempts!

Procedural Generated Levels:




Modern UI system:




Weapons and Upgrades:

But the enthusiasm is well appreciated. We're a lot of people who are excited about the release. I'm looking forward to trying it myself, though it's a bit too high up on Maslow's pyramid for me to get a copy right now.

Phuket's been having fun with it and dropping Cogmind on some forums, but I guess he didn't know I'm also here :)

Looking forward to having you AgingMinotaur. No hurry, really, since there's still much to do and it will be even more enjoyable later. Some people really want in on it early and it's nice to have some enthusiastic players to bounce ideas off of. Too many might slow the process down even more than it already will, though! We'll see how it goes...

Thanks.

Sorry didn't know you had already beat me to the punch! I let my excitement get the better of me. I have no idea what it is with roguelikes but I haven't played a single triple A game since I tried dwarf fortress for the first time 3 years ago. It was the most fun I have ever had and now other games feel so much more boring and easy. I don't really have fun unless I'm getting my ass kicked. Something must be wrong with me.  :P

No, no, you just took the red pill and now you're like the rest of us, stuck here at the mercy of the RNG, FOREVER!

Oh god no! That sounds both terrifying and wonderfully pleasant all in one sweep D:
