So, I found a number of classic roguelikes in the repos (and AUR)… Any specifically recommended?
TIL what is a roguelike thanks to your post.
Wikipedia is your friend: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roguelike
Angband is a great one, even if I prefer Stone Soup in tiles mode.
Ohhh god… Roguelikes
I’ve played a few, but the “genre” in a roguelike seems to vary slightly. I’ve played ones specifically called Nuclear Throne and Enter the Gungeon, and both, for beginners to maybe twinstick shooters, would kick your butt very hard.
A general tip I have for them? I hope I don’t sound cheesy or corny but; never give up, even when things aren’t looking great, something may or even just will turn up for you to turn a run around, dying in a roguelike is a learning experience.
(Note: Yeah, these are games on Steam and by extension nonfree, very fun though, and both native Linux games!)
