Hello all! So 7DRLC 2012 is officially over. From what I’ve seen so far, it looks like you folks have made some pretty awesome entries—I look forward to checking them out! If you need hosting for your roguelike, feel free to upload it here at 7DRL.org; we’ve got plenty of space.
This year blog stats just blew me away. Last year, from memory, we had 955 views on our busiest day. This year? 1945 views, over double that amount, yesterday (Monday, March 19th). And we may beat that today—as I write, we’ve had 950 views and it’s only 10.42 am.
As such, spam has been a bit of a problem. Please accept my apologies for any spam that did manage to slip through the net. As always, I would love to hear your comments or suggestions—Could the blog theme be improved? What kinds of additional resources could 7DRL.org provide? How could the process of posting updates be streamlined?
And yeah, about Forgerl… Well, it’s a long story. Basically, I failed, although I still plan to work on the roguelike. Some stuff came up during the week which took up quite a bit of time; I was sick; and, to make matters worse, I decided to change libraries (and programming languages) halfway through (from C and libTCOD to Java and Swing). Not a good idea.
I’ll begin the process of collating a list of 7DRLs soon. Do you folks know of any lists that are already being made?
