Speak friend and enter!
I have been interested in Roguelikes ever since I accidentaly stumbled upon NetHack in the early 2000's. After three and a half years of miserable trying (I only reached Gehennom once) I found ADOM, fell in love immediately, and played it for quite some time until it crashed unrecoverably on my magnificent dwarven priest. He was crowned and everything!
At the moment I'm studying Java (for work and leisure) and developing a small-scale Roguelike project. The project is codenamed "Krool" (pronounced "cruel", reflecting the atmosphere of the game) and will feature a less-than noble adventurer trying to escape hell, fighting various evil characters willing to get out themselves such as Bowser from Super Mario, Mortimer McMire from Commander Keen and Adolf Hitler from
real life Wolfenstein 3D.
