    Has anyone made a zombie survival game where you’re a lone mindless zombie facing off against a horde of epicly armed, intelligent, fast humans?

      @Daemon: You can start as a zombie in this game. =) You can also come back to life as your -own- zombie if you succumb to the gnashing teeth of the undead.

      @Harrkev: I found the game hard at first, but I grokked the pattern within a few games, and have been steadily getting better. (I’ve played about 10 games) Hardcore roguelikes aren’t my thing, but this hit a sweet spot I didn’t know was there.

    I hate to disagree with you folks, but I don’t play nethack because of the ascii madness. Same reason I didn’t play Dwarf Fortress initially, either.

    This game actually got me interested in roguelikes again!

  3. Ambiguity says:

    Yes, but how does it compare to nethack?

    • Jonathan Badger says:

      I’m pretty sure anyone remotely interested in playing a new roguelike like this has played Nethack and Angband to death already.

    Graphical tiles ruin roguelikes!

    Rob,

    You owe me one new pair of underwear and a keyboard.

    ps.
    I will now have to test this in Wine. Shall I send further bills to you or BoingBoing?

    Holy crap.

    I had no idea what y’all meant by the term “roguelike” so I checked the ol’ Wikipedia. The illustration showed a screen from some unnamed example that looked for all the world like something I played on my brother’s Kaypro II back in Reagan’s first term. I hadn’t seen it since.

    You guys threw me back into junior high for a few minutes there…

    It’s written in .net. Of course it doesn’t friggin’ work in wine… And it’ll probably never get a non-windows release because of it as well. Darmn it…

    Tested it a few months ago, it’s nice. The randomly-moving other humans act a little too weirdly, that was my main quibble. I’ll check if he fixed that in the latest release…

    Meh. My opinion is that nethack-like games are insanely difficult for casual players. In Angband, it is quite easy to get killed by a room of jellies on even the earliest levels.
