Have you guys seen this game - ASCII Sector.

I just stumbled upon this game: http://www.asciisector.net I love how well this game's user interface is represented in ASCII only, it's really beautiful. Space exploration, shooting/trading game. Check it out! =)

I've played this. I make all my money going on a murderous rampage. I can kill the entire population of New Beijing and all I get is a hefty fine that no one tries to make me pay.

I could not figure out what was going on in this one.  My biggest problem with sci-fi and space exploration games is that they have a strong tendency to add way too many unnecessary commands and make the game a lot harder to get into than it needs to be.

I have to try this one!

It strongly reminds me the wonderful old game Hard Nova.. one of my all time favourites.









What I enjoy the most in roguelikes: Anti-Farming and Mac Givering my way out. Kind of what I also enjoy in life.

Looks nice. Fun seeing ascii characters integrated into the interface like that.

Edit: Was awesome ^^

Has anyone tried Tachyon: The Fringe? Not a rogue-like, but was awesome. Somehow reminded me of this, although it's partially storyline oriented.

  I played Privateer, but I have to tell you I didn't make it too far. :-(
