blacklily8 writes "Gamasutra has published our History of Rogue: Have @ You, You Deadly Zs. Despite only the most "primitive" audiovisuals, Rogue has continued to excite gamers and programmers worldwide, and has been ported, enhanced, and forked now for over two decades. What is it about Wichman and Toy's old UNIX RPG that has sent so many gamers to their deaths in the Dungeons of Doom, desperately seeking the fabled Amulet of Yendor? In this article, we cover the history of the game, including the Epyx failure to make a ton of cash selling it in 1983. We also discuss roguelike culture and development."
