Honourable Mentions for Ascii Dreams Roguelike of the Year 2010

All 3 honourable mentions this year had more votes than would have been required to win the inaugural competition, and two of them are returning winners.

Doom: the Roguelike aka DoomRL was the 2009 winner, and still perennial favourite short form roguelike.

Dwarf Fortress is the 2007 winner, and recent development cycles have seen the roguelike Adventurer mode receive a lot more attention.

Rogue Survivor is a relatively new entry into the field with its first release in May 2010, but has quickly grown in popularity being featured on the Indie Games blog and Rock Paper Shotgun. It is a zombie outbreak survival sandbox game, with all the scavenging, barricade building and alliances with other survivors that entails.
