    Hey! Ya'll remember the old popular game rogue? I don't, cuz I was born after it was released. But I was doing some research and I found out about it. It seems really fun, since I'm a fan of text based games like Dwarf Fortress, and I couldn't find it! It's like the game never existed! Where can I find it??

    I just google it and the first result leads to where you can download it. Of course it is for ms-dos but you can run it using dosbox (freeware).

    Rogue morphed into many variants, the most important being NetHack. NetHack is still under development and has a huge following. It is also actively ported to many platforms, including Mac OS and iPhone. Check it out . . .

    I always liked Angband; it's a Rogue-like game but with a Tolkien theme. Very well done, and a lot of fun.
