I think he specifically mentioned leaving out Dwarf Fortress on purpose (can't remember the reason, but I believe it was intentional and not a accidental omission).

Dwarf Fortress hasn't been updated in over a year.

And it is not really a roguelike.

It hasn't had a public release, no, but it's most certainly being updated, almost on a daily basis.

As for whether it's roguelike or not, I suppose it deviates from the form enough that that's a legitimate question, but certainly it derives heavily from, and resembles in many ways, that genre.

I think if Risk of Rain, Rogue Legacy, Teleglitch and Spelunky HD are roguelike enough to get on the poll, Dwarf Fortress should fine.

EDIT: Wow! ADOM + ADOM II has a huge amount of votes now. Combined it's only slightly behind ToME 4.
