Voting is open for 'Ascii Dreams Roguelike of the Year 2008' at http://roguelikedeveloper.blogspot.com

How did the roguelikes qualify?

The list was taken from the roguelike releases announced on the Rogue Basin news section between January 1st and December 17th 2008 and from the list of Actively Developing Roguelikes maintained by Jeff Lait. There are a record 75 entries this year.

What about 'x'?

Make sure you announced your roguelike on Rogue Basin for next year. In particular, NetHack didn't make it in, again.

What about the 7 day roguelikes?

I decided to exclude any 7 day roguelikes that weren't announced separately.

What's the prize?

Pride. And a sexy logo. You can see the winning 2007 logo on the Dwarf Fortress links page. Logo designs for this year are welcome.

Having a competition is a dumb idea/offensive/stupid when you can't police the results.

Yep. Doesn't stop it being fun. You can vote for multiple different roguelikes. The idea here is that you will be encouraged to go out and download a roguelike that other people consider interesting, not that there is any kind of real competition element involved.

I figured I'd post this announcement here as elsewhere as you guys may be interested in voting.

It was a tough decision between POWDER and Stone Soup. I played much more Stone Soup, so that's what I ended up choosing.

I voted for CryptRover because... well, I've played it. But then I saw the overwhelming (more than Dwarf Fortresss) votes for stone soup. Hmm, never heard of it. I'm gonna have to check it out.

Ooh, Melly, that's two of us. I have one I've started from scratch and abandoned no fewer than twice.

Only I have no idea how I would start. Someone walk me through it? Well, hello there!

Conveniently, there is an entire wiki dedicated to doing this: http://roguebasin.roguelikedevelopment.org/

Congratulations to all the roguelike developers, even the ones who aren't in the poll or haven't made their magnum opus yet! (I like to be inclusive.) Grin

Thanks for posting the link to the wiki, Andrew. By the way, it's great to see you around here. As I'm sure you already know, there are a lot of roguelike lovers among us. I really like seeing overlap between game communities from the various forks of the tree.

Hey Hideous, what is that snazzy screenshot you posted over in 'what are you working on?' It looks like the wiki is hard at work.  Smiley Hand Thumbs Up Right

No problem. I only really pop in now and again... too busy coding and everything else I do.
