Auro: The Golden Prince

For the last couple of weeks I've been working with Keith & Blake from DinofarmGames on a new game- Auro: The Golden Prince.

Auro is the result of deconstructing the roguelike genre to its base components and trying to reassemble it in a unique way, optimized for fast & furious game-play that is easy to learn but difficult to master.

The result however, is that Auro is not a roguelike - but rather a new approach using the base principles behind what we believe makes roguelikes good.

Please check it out on Kickstarter, where you can find out more about what Auro is all about and tell your friends about it!

We need all the help we can get to make this happen!

Prediction for the new year

I know it's a bit early for new-year predictions, but here is mine:

This time next year Angband and Nethack will become obsolete - there will be no reason to not play ToME4 or DCSS respectively instead.

EDIT: one game Brian mentioned in the comments that I completely forgot about: Brogue.

With that in mind I would restate my argument that I think the future "major" roguelikes are going to be DCSS, ToME4 & Brogue (and with some hope JADE eventually too).
