Honorable Mentions for Ascii Dreams Roguelike of the Year

Only two roguelikes came close to challenging the winner and runner up, and these were the revisioning of a golden oldie and a relatively new entrant which is already proving exceptionally popular.

Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup is a variant of Linley's Dungeon Crawl that's openly developed and invites participation from the Crawl community. It features tactical choice rich game-play and well-thought out game mechanics and skill system.

Incursion: Halls of the Goblin King is a D20 based fantasy roguelike by Julian Mensch that features deep game mechanics and a 'next-gen' religion system. It's possible to win this game as everything from a warrior or summoner or assassin or even a diplomat, and starting characters are considerably more powerful than many other roguelikes.

I'll be posting the full poll results tomorrow, as well as a new poll for the New Year. I promise to be a little better organised and publicise this more widely next year, for those of you who missed out on this years voting window.

Feedback welcome.
