Request for votes: 'Ascii Dreams Roguelike of the Year 2009'.

Voting is open for 'Ascii Dreams Roguelike of the Year 2009'.

To vote, go to http://roguelikedeveloper.blogspot.com

How did the roguelikes qualify?

The list was taken from the roguelike releases announced on the Rogue Basin news section between January 1st and December 19th 2009 and from the list of Actively Developing Roguelikes maintained by Jeff Lait. There are a record 99 entries this year - up from 75 the previous year.

What about 'x'?

Make sure you announced your roguelike on Rogue Basin for next year. In particular, NetHack didn't make it in, again. One of the previous winners also didn't make it in, much to my surprise. Although another roguelike developed by the same guys did, if you want to vote by proxy.

What about the 7 day roguelikes?

I decided to exclude any 7 day roguelikes that weren't announced separately. However, most of them were on Jeff Lait's list.

What's the prize?

Pride. And a sexy logo - if you want one. You can see the winning 2007 logo on the Dwarf Fortress links page. The Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup crowd didn't seem to need one. Logo designs for this year are welcome.

Having a competition is a dumb idea/offensive/stupid when you can't police the results.

Yep. Doesn't stop it being fun. You can vote for multiple different roguelikes. The idea here is that you will be encouraged to go out and download a roguelike that other people consider interesting, not that there is any kind of real competition element involved.

Andrew

It's probably too late (and too annoying) to do for your poll, but linking to the projects in question would be great. I have probably not played more than 10-15% of those games, which makes it hard for me to feel good about voting in the poll. I started googling for some of them but it'd be nice to have a direct link.

Unfortunately, blogspot won't let me create links in polls. It'd also massively inflate the amount of time I spend compiling the poll lists. And it's really intended for those people who have played a game to vote on it - if you haven't played it, by definition it can't be any good...

But other than that, yes.
