Sega Dreamcast Gets Rogue RPG Conversion 33

MilenCent writes "Oh rapturous jubilation! Some saintly homebrew Dreamcast programmer has ported Rogue, that wonderful, magnificent, beautifully malevolent progenitor of PC RPGs with randomly generated game content, to Sega's undead console. The history of Rogue is long and storied, and the genre of Roguelikes (which includes a certain game you may have heard of) has found a new platform to settle on."

    I hear a bunch about how great the Dreamcast homebrew scene is, but can't they do better than ports and clones? Are there any good homebrews that don't fall into either category?

    So an old game can play on a different platform. Yeah, that's nifty, but where's my original games? Is this the best that they can do?

    Because if it is, what's the point?

    I love these games. I find it hard to believe that modern RPG while graphically amazing cannot obtain the level of detail that the rouge like games have. Nethack will always be my favorite, but I have to try rouge on DC :D

    Why? Play emulated stuff on your TV for cheap. No modchip needed. No NES/Genesis/etc cluttering up the apartment.

    In regards to homebrew: think about how many awesome homebrew PC games there are (don't reply with a list unless it contains about 300 games). The DC homebrew scene is a fraction of the size of the PC scene, so I guess the number of excellent games rounds off to about zero.

    Anyway, I have enjoyed the emulated games/ports for Dreamcast.
