You are very welcome, I'm glad to help save a good game from obscurity.

Not a clue!
Nice to see some life still crawling around in here though.

So from the sound of it, only rumors of work? I put in for the mailing list when he announced it but nothing has come through on that so I kind of thought it might be dead, I was hoping more work had been done on DOOM RL or ALIENSRL or something but they all seem to be where they were. Think he is just keeping it quiet

Ah, that's kind of a weird way to do it. o..o
I guess it prevents necromancy but keeps people from having extended conversations. Oh well.

I guess that makes sense, the dev has been quite for over a year, I wonder if he is still working on hi game?
Anyway, I do hope the people that were looking for Ragnarok find this. It took a bit of searching to locate it and it s a fun enough game. Shows its age but you know its still a very interesting journey and that's what is important.

And thanks!

Not sure how active this forum is but I was poking around and saw this thread's original incarnation. And more specficially, mention of an old rogueliuke known as Ragnarok.
And how some of you wanted to play it again but couldn't locate it.
So I did a little internet legwork ad managed to find a working copy for you! If you guys are stll around anyway. It kind of looks like the forum died, what with all the threads being locked. Moderator on a warpath?
Anyway.

I had to do some searching first from Rogue Basin to find their site link, which was of course dead, then I used the internet wayback machine to pull up a working copy.
http://web.archive.org/web/20080318143259/http://roguelikes.sauceforge.net/pub/ragnarok/ but the download links don't work here unfortunately.
But following links the creator of THAT page put up (As Ragnarok's creator had bailed on the game well before that websites closure.) I found the original download link for the game and it actually works via the wayback machine. Behold. http://web.archive.org/web/20070207014403/http://theboyds.com/ragnarok/
But do note you need Dosbox to run the game. Its pretty old and hasn't aged well. But it IS interesting.
I just wish the character wouldn't pick p every item he walked over. Heheh.

Anyway, Hope that helps you guys out if you are still alive.
