Venerable roguelike ADOM gets major, near-final update

Ancient Domains of Mystery - ADOM, to its friends - has been kicking around for a good long while. A complex and traditional roguelike in the vein of Nethack, where everything seems to interact with everything else on some level, and death seems inevitable without extensive trial and error. The past few years have been treating this old workhorse well. While traditionally freeware, it returned…

Children Of The ADOM: Vanilla Bagel – The Roguelike

Vanilla Bagel [Steam page] is a proper roguelike. None of that roguelite or roguelikelike stuff here - you've got a big old inventory to manage, dungeons to explore, impossible odds stacked against you, and a whole lot of things to learn. It appeared on Steam a couple of weeks ago and that was the first I'd heard of it. Last night I decided to take…

Flowing Traffic: Steam Greenlights Another 75 Games

"Hmm? What's that?" Valve spins around its chair, suddenly noticing the noise. "E3 just happened and we didn't release any trailers for far away, in-development games? Right. Yeah, I guess you're right about that." Valve reaches over and pulls a rusting level by its desk. *k-k-k-thunk* Seventy-five new games have been greenlit, making their way through the community voting process to now have the right…

Actual Roguelike Alert: Ancient Domains Of Mystery

The purity of the term 'roguelike' has been debased and diluted. When I tell you that a game is a 'roguelike' you might expect to see platforming, first-person procedural dungeons or, I don't know, a kart racing game with a cast of death-staring cartoon characters. It's time to start a 'Reclaim Roguelike' campaign and Ancient Domains Of Mystery's revival is a superb catalyst. The game…
