ToneHack starts a weekly challenger run through #videogame #roguelike #GoldenKroneHotel as a vampire. In this #TraditionalRoguelike #game you can see just how important it is to know about the window locations on the map, because how the streaming sunlight cuts burning swathes across the hotel environment.
Tone explains the decision process and the ramifications on play of this build.
If you fancy playing a #roguelike #game like #DungeonCrawlStoneSoup #DCSS but don't know where to start I can heartily recommend Ic0nGaming's tutorial series (even if you only follow the 'how to start out' video. It will give you a good grounding in the things to watch out for and the essential key commands to get playing.
It's developed by the same team who made #Xenomarine (the groovey aliens/space marine roguelike)
Modernising & making ASCII adventuring more accessible - but my age is showing and I struggle with the non-standard keybindings and the mixed use of keys & mice in the menus.
Its very well put together and from what I've played a nice coffee-break romp, worth supporting, but I'd love it more if the bindings could be customised.
Works on #Linux too! \o/
@uoou watching the recent #TrendyTalk, I'm not a keyboard guru, I have a ten key less Red Dragon mechanical keyboard, & wondered how you cope with playing #CavesOfQud with your compact Unicom keyboard. I had to buy a numpad version of the Red Dragon to play #roguelike Qud because 8 way movement seems to be essential.
Well the #roguelikecelebration happened and was recorded for everyone..
kudos to all involved
Big Simple's #roguelike guides & playthroughs have become compelling viewing.
The stylised but functional presentation & the deep lore encourages you to layer your imagination around its framework & makes the world as fascinating as you can muster. The true power of traditional roguelikes.
Qud does it so well and in a world that is crafted and generated almost infinite replayability.
Plus it works well with #linux
watch, be encouraged & play

It gives you all you need to start exploring & completing the early quests.
Joppa is a great start zone, because you can loot (behind closed doors) the few chests in town to start off with some kit (often a few artifacts to hand in to Argyve).
Old (2018), out of date but I attempted a quick guide myself. I went Mutant.
Today is the day for some (virtual) #roguelike celebration 🥂
catch up on the stream
This preview of the 2020 #roguelike celebration slipped out at the end of last month and is worth a watch to see tasters for the talks/presentations to come in the main event.
Warning cool #procgen stuff discussions ahead.
The main event is in October
