I don't want to steal any thunder from Darren Grey's Roguelike Roundup for July, but there's been quite a bit of roguelike related news this month worth celebrating:
- Dwarf Fortress featured in NY Times Magazine
- Dungeons of Dredmor gets to #1 on Steam
- Match & Magic will be featured shortly on Bill Harris' Dubious Quality, a roguelike match 3 game written by the mysterious J.L. (Jeff Laflam)
- One of the developers of Super Meat Boy has made an announcement about his next project, a roguelike/shooter, The Binding of Isaac, which will also be released on Steam (Are roguelike shooters a new trend? Realm of the Mad God being the other example)
- The original developer of Egoboo is asking for funding via Kickstarter for his latest project, a Minecraft-like called Lords of Uberdark
(Ironically, the lack of access has helped me spend more time developing Unangband).
