  1. Wow, ToME 4 is a runaway success. I’ve yet to give it a serious try, but I really dig the web based reporting of player histories / activity.

    Also… very glad to see Brogue sneak into the top 10. Must’ve been wearing a +2 Ring of Stealth. : )


  2. I’m a little surprised 100 Rogues didn’t rank higher, and I would have really been interested to see Desktop Dungeons in the running, but it didn’t meet the qualification criteria…


  3. IMO a tiled version doesn’t get you as much customers as a good ASCII version (look at brogue). Especially for DoomRL as there is already a beautiful graphical version of Doom out there. 🙂


    1. sadly but true, a graphics version will bring much more attention to DoomRL and make it even more of a classic.

      A shame Kornel and Derek are too damn lazy to put it up.
