Releases wire XXX!

One month and a half since the last release wire, this XXX post is hot with lots of newcomers!

Major

Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup 0.5.1

Stone Soup 0.5.1 has been released, fixing an abundance of bugs.

Runners

GearHead2 0.610

Since the start of development, GH2 has used mostly the same game system as GH1, but that changed in v0.600. The character rules have been streamlined. The number of skills has been chopped from 43 to 25. Conversation is no longer a mandatory skill, and the rumor system has been reworked. It should be easier to create distinct characters with a strong concept, rather than having every character end up the same.

Kamyran’s Eye 2 1.2

With our publisher Manifesto Games going down, we are making Kamyran’s Eye 2 freeware.

It features a dynamic world that is never quite the same, armies that fight each other and burn down cities in a branching storyline with multiple endings.

EgoBoo 2.7.4

We’re pretty proud of how the game has been shaping up lately, so we’d like to get the word out as much as we can! If you write for a blog or news site, it would be great of you to mention us

Triangle Wizard R6.04

Another addition is that you can now let your summons and allies handleyour spare weapons and items allowing for many new strategies and a relative harmless way of testing if an unidentified item is hazardous.

LambdaRogue 1.5

It is done, I have finally released the next update of LambdaRogue, we are now at 1.5.

First Age Angband 1.0

Anything from later than the First Age has been removed.  No more Rings of Power, Grishnakh, Anduril, Saruman, Witch-King, etc.  There are some new uniques, artifacts and ego-items (and some just renamed).  There are also new item sets, and some reworked artifacts.

Prospector 0.1.7a

# 5 new unique planets (actually 10, but 5 are pretty similiar to each other)
# “Water” in planet display now counts all liquids &frozen water (And i was wondering why it wasnt snowing ever…)

Kharne 0.03c

Goodbye Rusted Silk Pantaloons

Newcomers

G.O.R.E. 0.1.0

GORE is GNU Online Roguelike Environment (or “Gore’s not Only Rogue-like Entertainment”). It is written on Vala programming language.

3069 v2.8.2

The year is 3069. Earth has since been destroyed by a catastrophic geothermal experiment. Fortunately, you and many others were safely relocated onto planet Esperanza before the blast.

Plague 3.38

There is a desperate need for some better artwork for the Rocket Launcher (RT) and Flame Thrower (FT), both images and sounds.

The Dawn of The Dead The Roguelike

Dada su condición de Roguelike, cada partida que juguéis se generara aleatoriamente, por lo que es prácticamente imposible que una partida sea igual que otra.

Dungeon Adventure – the 133rd K.R.A.G. R4

The basic premise of the scenario is the story of a lowly Khazad guard, who fails catastrophicly in his duties. Instead of being exiled from the Clan, however, Lord Kandros Fir gives him a chance to redeem himself by drafting him into the service of the 133rd K.R.A.G. (Khazad Resource Acquisition Group).

The story takes place in the early days of the Khazad exodus (exile?) to the the Surface. At this time, the Khazad still have some holdings in the Underhome, and just starting to explore and colonize the Surface World.

Rogue Planets 1.2

A friend of me who loves roguelikes said it’s addicting and I got quite a bit addicted to it as well. Wish I could fight with someone over the best high score.

Treachery 0.0.0.0.1

Non-linear main plot is not based on the ancient evil wake or main hero’s amnesia.

HamQuest 1.0.0.7

Enjoy the game.

A “2009 7DRL Challenge” draws near!

Releases Wire XXVI

Notables

Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup 0.4.5.

It can be played online; see crawl.akrasiac.org and crawl.develz.org. The latter server also allows you to peek into the gameplay changes in trunk (the cool, new stuff).

Privateer ASCII Sector 0.4.7

When a fixer or wingman has left his chair due to a fight breaking out, he will now stay inside the bar and will in time sit down again when the fight is over.

WarpRogue 0.8.0b

General Guderian now offers the Iron gate mission until you *really* reject it.

crashRun 0.3.0

The main new feature is cyberspace as an area that can be explored. When you jack into a terminal, instead of getting a menu of options, you instead can enter cyberspace

Newborn

Gruesome 0.0.3

It is pitch black.  You are likely to eat someone…

Downfall 0.2

This release adds multiple dungeon levels and items.

AmoebaRL 0.2

You play as an amoeba that decided to grow eating others

Tomb of Radwin

Amulet of Yendor / Rodney…
Wizardry / Trebor + Werdna…
Rawdin.. Darwin.. only the strong survive…
blah. cheesy I know.

Faeries’ Lair 7DRL

I have tried to make the game experience varied by designing monsters to be qualitatively different from each other; nearly every one has a special ability or behaviour

Settlement 1.3

After a long travel your group of settlers finished a basic settlement. The land seems to be very hostile. The next group of colonists will arrive after a month, therefore you have to last 30 days. Keep at the end as much money as possible.

Development
CL-TCOD

CL-TCOD has bindings for maybe 75% of tcod functions. All the console stuff, fonts, mouse, colours, images are in (I think).

ASCII-Paint 0.2

This version adds some features which make it easier to make and edit drawings.

Bonus
Triangle Wizard 4.01

Sacred Wrath, Cold Breath, Fire Breath and Acid Stream can now hit flying creatures starting from a certain spell level.

Releases Wire XXII

Yay! It is been a month and it is time for a new exciting releases wire. I have been impatiently waiting for this date to come so I could post!

Quarker 0.03d

There’s no menu for loading games, just type in the name of the character to load.

Privateer ASCII Sector 0.4.4

Your risk of being scanned at a nav point is now based on: your confed and militia standing, how often you’ve been caught smuggling in the past, how controlled the nav point is by confeds and militia, and whether or not you’ve just attacked or destroyed any pirates, retros or Kilrathi at that nav point.

GearHead v0.5.11

High performance engines are designed to provide maximum instantaneous power to the mecha’s body. This improved performance comes at the cost of safety, as engines of this type are prone to going nova if handled roughly. In addition, since most of the energy produced is being directly channeled into the limbs, a mecha with a high performance engine cannot use beam weapons as effectively as others.

Nate’s RL Lib

I know that libtcod offers most of these features, but I think it’s very complicated, and it relies on several other libraries. RLLib doesn’t need any other libraries, and is less bloated.

LambdaRogue 1.2

I just released LambdaRogue 1.2.

Lords of Darkhall 1.2.87

Imbue your ranged attacks with a magical seed, which bursts upon impact. Grasping vines hold the target in place while you continue to destroy it from afar, or deal with closer attackers.

Hokuto No Rogue 0.3.0

Added Goshi Retsu Dan technique. Explodes opponent hands.

Z+Angband 0.2.3

If you aren’t familiar with recent versions of Zangband, they feature a fractal random wilderness with multiple towns and dungeons. Z+Angband further enriches the world by adding farms and inns, independent fragments of civilization outside of towns.
