A thread for traditional roguelikes.

Many of these games are free.

Traditional Roguelikes:
DCSS (Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup)
ADOM (Ancient Domains of Mystery)
TOME (Tales of Maj'Eyal)
CoQ (Caves of Qud)
Cogmind
Brogue
CDDA (Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead)
Nethack
Dwarf Fortress (Adventure Mode)
Infra Arcana (HP Lovecraft inspired roguelike)
TGGW (The Ground Gives Way)
DOOM RL
Angband

Lazy Newb Pack for Dwarf Fortress:

I recommend using the Mayday tileset.

Nethack:

CDDA:

TOME:

Brogue:

Angband:

Infra Arcana (HP Lovecraft inspired roguelike):

TGGW (The Ground Gives Way):

DOOM RL:

Starters / Beginners Recommendations:
+ Brogue
+ TGGW
+ ADOM
+ DCSS
+ DOOM RL
+ TOME

Brogue & Dungeon Crawler Stone Soup & TGGW & DOOM RL are recommended for beginners.

Intermediate would be ADOM and CDDA. (But they're okay for beginners also).

Caves of Qud and Cogmind aren't free.

& for CDDA, in the options menu, you can go to Graphics and change tilesets. I recommend Chibi UltiCa or MSXotto.

BONUS: Since many of these you can add a name (except Brogue). Make a character named Alunya / Rodina / NKVD chan or Stirner or Grace or Political Ideology Catgirls or Porky & tell us their story.

 


 

Roguelikes & the benefits of permadeath

If you aren't looking for high fantasy / medieval themes, there are roguelikes with different settings like modern or futuristic.

CDDA (zombie / post-apoc / modern)
Caves of Qud (post-apoc / Fallout-like)
Cogmind (robot / sci-fi)
DOOM RL
Jupiter Hell
Infra Arcana (early 20th century / Lovecraftian)

ss13 is fun, but not a roguelike. It's a fun multiplayer game that is keyboard intensive like roguelikes.

You'll want byond to play it:

My recommendations, in this order, for leftypol:
CDDA > Caves of Qud > Infra Arcana > Brogue = TGGW > DCSS = ADOM = DOOM RL

Top 5 picks for leftypol adventure:
1. CDDA (Cataclysm Dark Days Ahead)
2. Caves of Qud
3. Infra Arcana
4. Brogue or TGGW
5. ADOM or DCSS

I tried getting back into DCSS but they took out so many things from when I used to play it actively it doesn't feel the same anymore.

IS anyone playing the latest release of Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead?
It is so on point, want to start some more content for this game.

first time playing with tiles, glad it does not look like a BYOND game in that regard no matter ASCII still superior

I try cata every now and then but I have a hard time meshing with survival games.

That's fair, in the genre i think little beats it but also it has everything there to make and play as a decent more streight RPG, especially with the high level, simple and versatile modding it allows.

 

>>30674
what was the "controversial content"

 

>>30715
Off the top of my head, being able to kill and molest kids.

 

>>30716
oh, the horror, seeing words you don't like on a screen

 

>>30717
I googled it and it seemed like more of a typical personality conflict, one admin wiped the servers and deleted everything as a power trip because he hated the users basically (it seemed to attract a right wing crowd generally)
