I think you're doing the right thing by moving on to different types of games.  Eventually, you may feel like you want to concentrate on RL's again, and the experience and ideas you get from other genres will only make your RL's that much more interesting.  And if you stick with doing the 7DRL competitions, you'll keep your fans very happy. :)

But yes, definitely before you go, get the graphical version of DoomRL out.  It will make you (even more) legendary! ;)

2 showed that it can outsmart hell itself.

From one of Blade's postmortems.  Would read better as:

"2 showed that they can outsmart hell itself."


"1 showed that he can outsmart hell itself."

I think the interesting aspect of the "play as the monster" idea isn't that you're a monster, but that you're a small part of a large horde going up against a single, but very powerful foe (the marine).  Otherwise, it's not that much different from playing a marine... you just have different weapons at your disposal.

But yeah, actually that's probably a better idea for a completely new 7DRL: you control one monster after another, trying to stop a single, overpowered human from getting to their goal.  The idea of playing as a large horde of creatures where the lives are insubstantial appeals to me somehow. :)

Just remembered a typo in post mortem text at the bottom:

"Some rumours, though, say that the CD was killed already!" - I think there is a missing comma before 'though'; I put it in bold.

EDIT: For better visibility, I put it in red bold :-)

Hum, I don't think you need any commas in that sentence ?:o

The commas are needed, although the entire sentence is a bit awkward.  Maybe:

"Some rumors, however, suggest that the Cyberdemon was already killed!"

Sounds good!  I'm assuming night goggles would just work like a powerup, right?

BTW, my (English-Czech) dictionary says that "stairs take you" is indeed proper English.

That's right.  "The stairs take you."  The question is when you put "each" or "every" in front of it.

EDIT: Is every stairs correct, then? There MUST be a proper adjective for something so plural as stairs...

I don't think "every stairs" is correct.  I think it must be "every set of stairs."

Like "pants."  You can't say "every pants."  You must say "every pair of pants."  So, thinking about how pants is used in English, I think "every set of stairs takes you down" would be the most grammatically correct.

English is confusing. :)

Good suggestion, "stairs down" reads better than "down stairs". I don't know about the pluralizing of "take" vs "takes", though. "Takes" you is probably the common use even though "take" may be proper English. Either would probably be fine.

"Each" always takes a singular verb, so it would be "takes."

Although I don't know if you can say "each stairs," since that's really like saying "each apples."

It would be "each set of stairs" perhaps?

Stairs is a confusing word.  I'll ask my friend who's an English major. :/

Great! :D

Yes, presentation is everything.  The game should look as professional as possible by 1.0.0.  That means no typos and consistency with naming.  i.e. it must be decided whether it's "Doom Roguelike," "Doom: The Roguelike," "Doom the Roguelike," or some other variant.  Same goes with "DoomRL," "DOOMRL," or "Doom RL..."

Here are Styro's finds from the other thread:

In the description for Badass, it has the following:

"deplete more slowly for you.Even more,"

To be consistent, there should be a space between "you." and "Even", like "you. Even"

OK, here's another one. ;)

There's the smell of blood in thy air!

The word "thy" should just be "the". "Thy" is a possessive, so it is like saying "your air".

Out of curiousity, is there any chance of finding an Advanced Combat Knife? I suppose you could only add speed and damage mods (just llike you can't add capacity to the rocket launcher), but it would make for an interesting challenge. That makes me wonder about dual-wielding Advanced Combat Knives...

Angel of Teleportitis!  Every X turns you teleport to a random spot on the map.  Could work to your advantage... but probably not!  The ultimate luck game. :)

I take it you are a pixie eater :p

You know it'd be fun. :)

That would make intuition an even more awesome trait! :O

That's pretty awesome.  Should get more health for a melee kill (or only get health for a melee kill?). :D

Off-topicish, but it might be nice to make it so that no items can be dropped on stairs.  It's rather annoying to not be able to see the stairs because an ammo pack is on it and it doesn't really add any gameplay value, imo.  Anyone second this? :)
