Berserk, DiabloRL or AliensRL?
« on: December 05, 2009, 22:42 »

I need a "playground" for the newly developed Neko library, before I move on to bigger projects with it. Due to speed of development, I'd probably choose one of the smaller projects. If you could see a revisted version of one of the smaller ChaosForge roguelikes which one would you like it to be?

Please don't take into account the "maturity" of the roguelike in question -- as it would be rewritten anyway.

Read about it here : http://blog.chaosforge.org/articles/36/aliensrl-berserk-or-diablorl

Also, if you vote, please comment!

I voted DiabloRL, as if you do work on it, I will endeavour to work on it with you if it remains open source.

BERSERK!

I'm sure Tav's choice surprised no-one :P

In any case, I voted for DiabloRL as well.

I like DoomRL far more than the others in their current state.  Voted DiabloRL out of the three, though.

I want a better version of DiabloRL. The game itself is already a roguelike-lite, but I wouldn't mind if it was made as close as possible so I don't have to pay for Diablo _

I'd vote either DiabloRL or BerserkRL, both of them are good. But to make a proper DiabloRL you'd need to invest a lot of time in it, probably more than you ever did in DoomRL. To add six classes, skills, a lot of spells, massive number of quests, huge amounts of magical items and enemies plus the amount of playtesting needed to make everything work means this is a really big project and god knows how long it'd take to finish. Definitely not suited for a "playground".

On the other hand, BerserkRL is a rather simple game, since it's basically an arena where you fight nonstop. All the equipment is already there, so work is only needed on the skills, enemies and some other details. Much easier to work with and shouldn't take long to complete.

So my vote goes to BerserkRL.

I think Kornel is basing this on the first Diablo game, which is more rogue-like than we might imagine.
