    the benhem 3d roguelike was very interesting. im a bit biased because i like ssh playable roguelikes.

    You might want to rename the title of this post – 2010 comp is long finished :)
    Yay I was definitely singing and happy after i finished.

    Changes: post title (:P), Konstantin moved to Gentlemen, Ido’s entry is taken off. I was told 7DRL is 7DRL so … eh.

    this would get way more attention if it had it’s own site or if you at least posted a screenshot for each on in one post

    right now 46 RLs in a list is pretty overwhelming

    Some great work putting it together Michał. Looking forward to seeing some reviews. I’ve already been having fun playing plenty of new RL’s, there are some pretty good ones this year.

    Post updated and underlying Pitman Krumb link leads now to version 1.1.

    Bug fixes are not against the rules. Here, this section:
    http://roguebasin.roguelikedevelopment.org/index.php?title=7DRL#So.2C_I.27ve_done_a_7DRL.2C_but_now_I_want_to_make_it_better.21

    I think it is better to lead readers to fixed version than to give them unstable game just to be strict with terms. You are only required to have 7DRL version also available for play/download so that people can judge whether modifications do not exceed bug fixes and minor corrections. But! I shall revert the link to its previous location if you insist.

    V1.1 isn’t bugfixes only, it also has some new features, with “progress saving” being the biggest.
    I don’t insist that much … I just thought it would be unfair towards others if I didn’t mention it.

  13. Darren Grey

    Other games are the same, linking to bugfix or tweak versions instead. It’s nothing to do with fairness – to be honest it’s unfair of others to leave bug-ridden code out there!
