    The creator of RexPaint also made Cogmind, a fantastic sci-fi roguelike which I feel pushes the boundaries the genre can achieve. The tool was actually created for this game, and was used in designing the game’s distinctive UI, as well as artstyle and animation.

    The development blog is absolutely filled with great information about designing a commercially successful roguelike.

        Truly recommended as it dives into the the BBS scene. Though it speaks about ANSI art, I found it worth sharing.
