Poll: What would you like for Rogue Survivor?

See poll on the right panel.

Blogger automatically considers some comments as spam, don't worry if your comment doesn't appear, I check the spam box regularly and put comments back here.


A. "Just keep at it!"
Means keep doing it as opposed to open source.

F. Better living AI
Should have made separate votes for Soldiers, Civilians, Gangs, CHAR and player followers AI etc...
If you want a particular living AI improved over others, precise it with a comment.

I. More content (items, buildings..)
Also includes Skills.

Donation page added

I added a "Donate" page where you can donate via PayPal.
Look at the top of the blog in the page menu.

Some of you expressed the desire or willingness to donate,  so why not?
I put a disclaimer on the donation page to remind you what a donation is and what you can expect from it.
I won't play the poor sad puppy or salesman tricks on you to get more donation money.
Just give what you want, if you feel like it!

New roguedjack Flash blog

That's the place to go if you want to know what the hell I'm doing with Flash while every decent chap knows I should be working on Rogue Survivor (bastard me!).
There are already a couple of gameplay screens to lurk at.
I'll keep this blog Rogue Survivor related.

Don't worry, again either :
  1. I go back to Rogue Survivor in the near/mid future.
  2. I release the game as Open Source, so anyone can improve it.
  3. Some game company has a lot of money to loose and hire me to make a Virtual Rogue Survivor 3D Multiplayer Wireless Surround Turbo.Unlikely eh?

You've got mail

I'll take time to answer mails and look at comments and troll-spam the fans forum.
I also must try Grand Rogue Auto.

For various reasons, RS is in neutral gear since January. That's bad news I know.
The time that was spent on RS is now spent on learning Flash, because I need the skill.

I'm writing various game prototypes while learning. Prototyping with Flash is really easy and fun. I strongly dislike writing UI code and Flash makes it very easy to implement an interface and go straight to game mechanics and AI. Some real games might come out of it. Simpler than RS but with original and interesting gameplay and very unlike your average Flash game. I think I'll make a blog about them.

I'll try to come back at it later. Hopefully it is not dead, but you shouldn't expect frequent releases as before.
Letting this game die would be a shame, wouldn't it?

Ok. Time to check the mails.
