Runner Up for Ascii Dreams Roguelike of the Year: Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup

Last year's winner put on a brave run for second place, but while the voting fans seem to have rested on their laurels a little early, the developers have tirelessly continued to work on the game, taking it from version 0.4.5 at the start of the year to version 0.5.2, as well as migrating to a git-based source repository. Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup also celebrated a well-deserved third birthday party in September, from when they branched, or more correctly took up the torch and kept running from the original Linley's Dungeon Crawl.

The fact that Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup didn't win, while getting 50 more votes than last year, is testament to the strength and dedication of the community around the roguelike genre in general. I can only refer you to the write up of last year's win for more Crawl resources and the obligatory John Harris article.
