I am just rediscovering Roguelikes. Such simple concept, such challenge, so many dead heroes in the dungeons of doom!

Standard disclaimer about how I'm probably the last person in the world to discover something...

My youtube feed suddenly filled up with videos of people doing ridiculous simulations of car wrecks and other disasters using some sort of simulator.
After laughing our butts off for way too long, I decided to find out what simulator they were using.

It is "BeamNG.drive" , an open source derived game that is available on Steam.
It's basically a soft-body physics simulator that is full of vehicles and other things.

Game site with sample video: https://www.beamng.com/
YouTube channel "Car Pal" with lots of ridiculous simulations: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-_P5TZ0Ko_YiZ4ds4i2sDg

We may just have to get this game and do lots of stupid things with it.

My wife played Rogue before I met her. One of the many reasons we've stayed together.

Original rogue is still available in many versions. You can even play the original via ssh at rlgallery.org. You can visit the website. Beware the game is brutal.

I never played much Rogue but I played a lot of Star Trek. I also remember the Apple ][ port of Star Trek, called "Apple Trek" where you were in charge of the starship "Endeavor" and fought against "Klarnons".

I love the Trek game at bsdgames.

If you play it in "short game" mode and "impossible" difficulty, it is also brutal. Your ship gets half destroyed in the two first turns hahahaha

I think I'm going to be playing a lot of old video games over the next 4 years - or doing anything else that keeps me away from Facebook and Twitter.

A Slower Speed of Light is a first-person game prototype in which players navigate a 3D space while picking up orbs that reduce the speed of light in increments. Custom-built, open-source relativistic graphics code allows the speed of light in the game to approach the player’s own maximum walking speed. Visual effects of special relativity gradually become apparent to the player, increasing the challenge of gameplay. These effects, rendered in realtime to vertex accuracy, include the Doppler effect (red- and blue-shifting of visible light, and the shifting of infrared and ultraviolet light into the visible spectrum); the searchlight effect (increased brightness in the direction of travel); time dilation (differences in the perceived passage of time from the player and the outside world); Lorentz transformation (warping of space at near-light speeds); and the runtime effect (the ability to see objects as they were in the past, due to the travel time of light). Players can choose to share their mastery and experience of the game through Twitter. A Slower Speed of Light combines accessible gameplay and a fantasy setting with theoretical and computational physics research to deliver an engaging and pedagogically rich experience.


For Linux, Mac and something called Windows.

May I suggest Hyper Rogue to you? It is a GUI Rogue game which takes place in an Hyperbolic space. Non-Euclidean movement. The concept is awesome. You really need to try it out.

Also, tak care because you die in just one hit :)
