The importance of the RogueLike for the developer


We are going to see a lot more articles and tutorials from me  on roguelike games this year and part of the reason for this is the importance for these type of games for the beginner/intermediate developer. Whilst it’s obviously hard to build any sort of 3d game for a beginner developerwithout assistance – building a simple yet playable roguelike game however (even just using a windows console app say using C#) is quite possible. OK you are not going to make a fortune out of a simple textbased rouguelike ,but you may well be able to get your friends to play it!!!
