- What are your favorite roguelikes?
- What do you like about them?
- Do you like ASCII graphics or do you prefer tiles?
- What about permadeath? Do you respect it or do you backup your saves?
Here are some of my faves:UnReal World
- graphical, realistic survival from iron age Finland. You're walking around wilderness, trying to find food, shelter, doing anything to survive. There's also a range of realistic skills and actions you can apply to stuff, like preserving food and building houses.Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead
- modern zombie survival. In some ways incredibly deep - just to illustrate, the simulation includes: sight, sound, temperature, humidity, smell. Also LOTS of crafting options. And working multi-tile vehicles.Dwarf Fortress
- building and managing a fortress, protecting it from raids. It simulates really detailed individual dwarf stats. This one I couldn't really get into, somehow I didn't feel like the interface/game was giving me the right info at the right time, or the right tools to manage it properly. But it sounds interesting and people praise it a lot
