Hey man! I was just thinking of you recently!

Glad you're still around. I remember having a lot of fun conversations with you on MSN back in the day.

How's things?

FWIW, if anyone is playing this, you may run into a statue of "Dogbreath the Gnoll Warrior" in the game that has a tribute to DGF. :)

QuadKo: Dunno if you've been keeping up, but ADOM was recently just greenlit on Steam. :) I've been playing all the pre-releases, it's come a long way. Especially in the latest ones. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XzLnW5gTyRY is the latest video I know of, but it's progressed quite a bit since then...

Was jean before my time? Sounds vaguely familiar, but it could be just from people's references I think so. Were you around in the iB days? Oh! And TravisLewisX. Also Proceus - our resident grootvader pre-Dosraider. Anybody remember when Proc left? Seems to me he left a cryptic trail of images or s...

What? Nonsense! DGF is still alive! (echo: alive, alive, alive aliv...)

Uh, hello? Anyone there? You guys?

Eh, screw it. It was fun while it lasted. :lolcat:

:jester: :bday: :D I'm so glad it made it, and that I was able to contribute! Thanks for posting the links, Dogbreath, I wouldn't have known about it otherwise. Thomas did a pretty poor job of advertising and building up to the campaign, IMO. I only found out about it talking to him on FB chat a fe...

10 days left, $42,357 raised. If you've been waiting to donate, now is probably your best bet.

Well, the campaign has 3 weeks left to go, and is sitting right at $32,000. In the past few weeks Thomas Biskup released ADOM 1.2.0 per-release 1 and 2 and has also put up a sample of the tileset they're working on: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-aVSg9DEbDRk/UCUnBlE0cWI/AAAAAAAAAZM/jod1wxs2tAc/s1600/Tile...

Actually, there are a lot of roguelike gamers/developers in their early 20s (I'm only 23 myself...), and it's a growing genre - there have been a lot of very successful roguelikes in the past few years. (Tome4, DCSS, The Binding of Isaac, Dungeons of Dredmor, Torchlight I and II, Diablo III, etc.) A...

The Next Kickst... er... Indiegogo, ADOM 1.2.0

After a 10 year Hiatus Thomas Biskup (the creator of ADOM) is resurrecting ADOM development - specifically, he's put together a team of 4 developers and is asking for $48,000 to "finish" ADOM and modernize it. (i.e, get rid of all the bugs, balance the game and flesh out all the game mechanics, as w...

Definitely misunderstood - I was saying it's not about the graphics engine, it's what they do with it. Doom is far more primative than, say, Quake, but IMO it's far prettier. Going further back, Dragon Wars, for example, is only 16 color EGA still frames, but is still remarkably attractive. This gam...

I'll be honest, as much as I dislike "graphics whores", this game just looks *ugly*. I can play the original Half Life (which came out a year before) and still appreciate it, or Unreal, or even Doom, and have no problem with the relatively primitive graphics, because they're quite beautiful games de...

Hmm, reminds me of the Avernum Games (Blades of Avernum specifically)... spent way too much time playing those. I'll give it a try.

Pretty good. It seems relatively grounded for an article of that sort - many of them get carried away and become a little high-handed, this one just seems to be describing the facts of who we are and how we think without too much self aggrandization.
