RogueShell - Browser console for ASCII roguelikes
I've been working on a website that lets people play ASCII roguelikes in the browser. It's pretty close to feature complete but a few things are broken. Have a play.

I'm currently not allowing open registrations, I just send out invites to people as they sign up to the beta. The only reason I'm doing this is because I still don't know how well it will scale so I am just moderating the number of people that turn up at any one time.

And hey, If anyone feels inspired to make a little logo or even just a favicon I would be eternally grateful!

Every game you start gets a spectate link. Which you can find under your profile. This gives a read only view that you can share with anyone, even people without an account. Any feedback welcomed. Especially general design suggestions. I'm a design muppet.

cortex: Did you already sign up for an account from the Reddit thread a few months ago? Someone registered with the username and I know you love rogue likes so I thought it might be you, the mefi cortex.

I don't think so, but it's not impossible for it to have happened on a distracted evening where I promptly forget.

Actually my bad, someone's email included "cortex", but the username is still available if you want it :)

yes, this is pretty awesome!

One thing I love about Crawl is watching other people play.

One thing I didn't like about Cataclysm was that I couldn't seem to be able to watch other people play (which was important since I didn't have time to learn to play at the time).

Looking forward to getting a spot in the beta!
