Cute Diggle PlushieBy now everyone knows how much fun I think Dungeons of Dredmor is. Those of you wanting reviews, I plan to do one once the Conquest of the Wizardlands expansion is patched. If you’re new here, I may have established that I’m pretty good at DoD when I murdered Lord Dredmor in an absurdly difficult way, and after doing so there were some events to follow that would lead to me finding a lot of great people in the game community (and having a whole new appreciation for the developer). Among the communities I found were the folks over at /r/Dredmor on Reddit. They started up a weekly Dredmor Challenge which I recently participated in and won (it was close!) So that means this week I get to make the new Reddit Dredmor Challenge! You can see the details here on Reddit/r/Dredmor. If you’re new to Reddit/terrifed of Reddit I’ve reposted the contest here as well so you can participate. (I’ll just post your scores on Reddit for you, either comment here or email me at thecakepie@gmail.com) Read more…

The image is an illustration of the female hero from Dungeons of Dredmor covered in blood holding an ax and looking worn from battle.A while back, I explained roguelikes here on Cake-pie, and one of the titles I mentioned was Dungeons of Dredmor (it was also on sale a few times). This morning at 4:26am “Carl Sagan” and I beat it on the hardest setting, and with a random skill build (the computer picks 7 random skills for you). That means that when I created the character, I left my entire chances to win to the computer to decide at random. Permadeath means that when you die, you’re dead. If you saved the game at any point, your save game is deleted. You cannot return to life. BALEETED. Read more…

Roguelike mating call

You punks reading this who already know what Roguelikes are will smugly state “But I need not read such history, for the genre is eponymous; that is, it was named for the first game of this type, and that game was Rogue.” Smuggery be damned because you’re only half right. While the genre truly was named for Rogue (and a popular game it was) it was not the first.
 
Generally, a Roguelike is defined by some pretty specific stuff, but as for me, I’d call a game roguelike if it met a general feel or enough boxes on a list. It’s best if we make such a list, don’t you think? Read more…
