From the readme.txt of DiabloRL:

Code: [Select]
If I would (only if I get enough motivated by you ;-)) ever make a full
version it would have:

 -- the full range of Diablo items, monsters, uniques, prefixees and spells
 -- catacombs, caves and hell -- each with a unique level generator
 -- all the original Diablo quests with the original texts
 -- all the hidden quest locations and uniques
 -- additional quests that by Blizzard that didn''t appear in Diablo
 -- full spell and missile weapon system
 -- six classes -- Warrior, Mage, Rogue, Monk, Bard and Barbarian
 -- maybe additional Hellfire content -- spells, items, quests, uniques.
 -- Programmer''s edition -- how the author himself see''s the world of Diablo
 -- proper shops, and special rooms in dungeons

Remember that Berserk has a lot less stuff to work on...no shops, spells, quests and so on. It's a much simpler project.

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

(=

Correct. There is the town, Tristram, with the dungeon below it. It's basically Angband without all the LOTR refernces.

After reading the blog post, I change my vote to Berzerk. I want a Happy Kornel.

Especially since a Happy Kornel is a Productive Kornel, and that equals DoomRL2.

Naw, he's giving his power to the people. He'll do Berzerk, it's just to see wether people want it now, or later.

Could you open the poll so you can change your vote, Kornel?

I think it is.  You might need to remove the vote and recast it I think.

Thanks, the remove vote button blended into the background.

Frankly, I think Berzerk is rather boring. Sure it is fun to play a couple times, but there is no replay value for me. AliensRL is relatively fun to me, but for long-term fun and replayability my vote is for DiabloRL.

All of you pansies who voted for something else because it is easier need to change your votes. :)

Kornel offered DiabloRL. I figured that he would not have if he did not think it is possible. It is also unfinished. What good would a remake of Berzerk or AliensRL do? We can already play both of those games?

What does that mean? Sure DiabloRL isn't finished, but it's playable, right? I can play it too. But I didn't like it as much as the idea of Berzerk after thinking about it. And I didn't vote for Berzerk because it was easier, I voted for Berzerk in the end because it 'll allow me a new version to kill things in. Version Kill.Stuff you might say.

Hey guys, Berserk =/= Berzerk. The latter is a crappy arcade game.
