Maybe make graphics and ascii versions separately, only changing output style. And you can choose, what version to download. Hey, developers, what you need to change in engine to convert everything to graphics?

Well actually... I guess it all depends on if you planned to support both modes when you started the project, altough it is never too late...

Also, it is common for graphics and ascii version to be bundled together and switched via configuration (or ingame)

Now now, no need to be sarcastic. ;)

Remember that it's an option, and you won't have to use it.  Plus the graphics will be awesome, so I hear...

What the hell ever happened to Aliens RL???

Kornel said something in another post about watching the 12th of March.  Any significance Kornel?

My vote is for:
DoomRL 1.0.0
Aliens RL 1.0.0
Pimp RL 1.0.0 (Would be a very interesting Rogue-Like! Since it's only ASCII, then is won't need any porn images.  Player can fight off other pimps and gang members and recruit/work his girls on the street.  Later expansion into drug and gun dealing.....ok, I'll stop now.

Seriously, Doom 1.0.0 and Aliens RL!


(Graphics are cool as long as the gameplay is fun.  I'd rather have crappy graphics and fun play than great graphics and lousy play).

Zombie Horror Survival!
« Reply #54 on: March 28, 2007, 13:05 »

My dream rogue is a randomized urban survival against zombies with multiple STARTING points.  The zombie fighting angle is obvious, but the starting point thing goes like this:

Depending on what type of character you choose (with the attendant bonuses and penalties) your mission will vary.  For example, if you are an unarmed civilian, perhaps either holing up in a house and surviving the night, or making your way to a shelter would be the goal.  However, if you are, say, a police officer, or a national militia type, then your increased firepower would be matched with a more difficult objective, like clearing the area around a shelter, or escorting civilians to safe zones.  A middle ground would be perhaps a street hoodlum, with better weaponry and combat skills, but no initial shelter, say trying to rescue his family or girlfriend.

Within their limitations, these goals, and the associated maps, could be randomized.

The Key is that the intro map, the triggered quests, and the overall experience would be dependent on what role you choose.  The would multiply the replayability.

Yes! Yes! That's what is wanted by everyone! A zombie roguelike!
Seriously, there aren't any zombie roguelikes, except of some crappy mod of some bigger RL, and in my opinion zombies deserve a roguelike. Think about all those zombie geeks who would start worshipping the Creator of first ZombieRL! It it going to be considered? Please!
Oh, and welcome everyone! I ask for your forbearence, I don't use english outside of school too often:)

Heh, I can see that you like Zombies seeing as you brought this thread back to life and all that ;)

Seriously though, I've been looking for a zombie RL but haven't found any that looks all that good. But I guess it's hard to make an interesting ZRL? basically it's slow moving drone-like creatures that don't use weapons that have to be either avoided or shot down in huge numbers... ok I'm getting excited here :)

It'd be really cool to generate a new city every game, with gun shops and malls of course :), and then see how long you could survive. Maybe add a timer of some sort, like survive for 10.000 turns and then get to the helipad and get rescued. As the game starts out there's few zombies but the longer you survive the more of them pop up of course. I've actually entertained the idea of creating such a RL, I quickly ended that train of thought however, I have no programming skills :)
