So finally, after three billion years (approximately), JADE is out. Well, the first version anyway (0.10).
What did I think of it?
I have no idea.
I got as far as the 2nd character selection screen - the one with the gadzillion of skill options and went "sod it"; and switched back to stat-gaining my current Half-Troll Warrior on Angband.
There's a lesson for us all. And why Crawl is so successful. And why I ditched the intensive character min-maxing in a very early version of my own (as incomplete) roguelike.
Grab me in please. Without having to go through twenty-billion (contextless) options.
I just want to play!
