Thank you for Rogue!

Post by JeFurry » Mon Dec 01, 2008 6:41 am

Back at Uni, I played Ularn far more than Rogue - I spent several weeks on it until I finally finished it! Then I moved on to Rogue, but never quite caught the bug as much as I had previously.

However, having it on my iPhone now could be the end of productivity for me - I'm in danger of getting hooked. I had a hard time explaining to my wife why I've stopped playing Fallout 3 in order to play this "funny little letters game"! :-)

Thank you for porting it. You've done an excellent job. I'd have paid for it quite willingly, by the way.

I've read the FAQ and understand the issues, but I can't help still hoping Larn might get a similar treatment one day...

Not quite sure if this is totally accurate, but I believe the rogue code (and that of most of its descendants) is publicly licensed under some kind of gpl that prevents people from charging for it.

Anybody with a better understanding of this want to weigh in?
