My ASCII thing is starting to feel more and more like a roguelike. (I’ve never played Rogue. What’s it like?)
That’s cool. I love Rogue-Likes!
I think it’s some unwritten law that games written in ASCII inevitably become more and more like roguelikes the more they’re developed.
Something about developers going “oh, well if I don’t have to worry about graphics, I can add THIS, and THIS, and THIS,” then before you know it?
Bam. You’re on the floor, vomiting out snakeman acid you got from licking a dragon tumor as a group of half-kobolds-half-ogres scurry around stabbing your procedurally-generated naughty bits
Haha, sounds about right.
For example, in this game, I just had a tiger smash through a wall and destroy a game critical object I wasn’t aware it was even possible to destroy…
How about a roguelike MMORPG?! 😀
I believe HACK is the roguelike MMORPG you’re looking for, made back in the day.
As for Rogue itself, it’s a brutally hard dungeon hack with no save function, inspired by early D&D, and has been the inspiration for many RPGs after it, ranging from Ultima to Diablo.
But why don’t you find out for yourself? Here’s a link to a guy who recompiled the game to work on windows: https://www.prankster.com/winrogue/
Play this (newb friendly version of Rogue):
I’ll take a look at HACK, thanks, Josh…
I am under the impression the bit “I never played rogur, what is it like” is a play of words 😉
In any case, just to state this, my favorite roguelike is Slash’EM!
this kinda looks like dwarf fortress to me maybe thats just me.
Well at least the older version.
