    caves of chud is everything wrong with where roguelikes went

    used to be dungeon crawlers with simple one or two step quests that thrived on procedural generation written by very clever people with mainframe access

    now they are made by spergs surviving on government handouts and furry incels that only wants to simulate toenail growth

    what the fuck man

  3. Yet caves of qud is great and can stand on its own compared to roguelikes of old.
    The same can be said about autistic overly complex roguelikes like dwarf fortress or cdda.

    I, for one, am glad they focus on important features like making sure waterbeds pop when someone with quills sleeps on them, instead of continuing the actual game to completion. Priorities straight as always.

    I hope they banned truly offensive words like templar! Otherwise they are just continuing to enable speciesism!

    They are also fixing bugs that should have been fixed from day 1. Seeing that water is so important, liquid vessels leaking when broken should have been a feature from the start, not a hideous self-insert abomination who rants in pronouns.

    I'd be curious to see what "offensive" words came up through the random generator.

  10. Current priority (milestone) is stated to be improved gui and they seem to be making progress on it. As far as continuing the game to completion - you can actually finish the game and achieve minor victory since tomb of the eaters update.

    I am trying to get into this game, bought it the other day on Steam.

    I don't know how I feel about it yet. Got about 5 hours in.

    Playing True Kin finally clicked for me. A mutant playthrough works when you've gotten adjusted to the game.

    Yeah I rolled a True Kin Praetorian -- sword and board type, generally my default when I'm trying a game out for the first time.

    I very much like the "aesthetic" of the lore and story. I appreciate games that mix sci-fi and fantasy weirdness in future/past earths, ala Gene Wolfe. But as I'm getting into the game, I'm learning there is a whole subculture (there usually is) and the developer is an SJW furry, or something? I also came across a bunch of steam reviews which were quite obviously brigaded and/or organized, I'm assuming in response to something that happened? Someone explain this to me.

    Hell broke loose when Sseth reviewed the game and elaborated on how he was banned from the game's discord due to wrongthink. I suppose you can sum things up from there on.

    It was split into a different thread:

    https://rpgcodex.net/forums/threads...ned-ssethtzeentach-from-their-discord.135627/

    Example of their discord mods:

    The dev is also a crazy person with similar opinions.

    Jesus Christ these people just think everything and everyone is a fascist. The word doesn't even mean anything anymore. They would see fascists in a box of graham crackers -- simultaneously exhibiting actual fascist tendencies themselves, meanwhile. Idiots.

    There's even a "It's current year!" reference. They have creamed-corn for both brains and spines, and they appear to be made in a factory. Why do they all sound the same? Why do they all say the same underwhelming shit?

    Welcome to the "NPC meme is real" situation. If you pay attention, you'll notice that many indie games blatantly copy previous indie games that are somewhat successful or popular, such as Undertale, the Disco Commiessium's dialogue tree style, the art style being a blatant derivative of Hollow Knight and so on.
    Fake pixel art and copying Dark Souls (or "Soulsborne" as how they call it nowadays) is also quite common, unfortunately,

    Now we know that that wasn't one of the naughty words that got the chop in an earlier update.
