Cataclysm Dark Days Ahead is a survival monster apocalypse roguelike.
Whereas most roguelikes are based in fantasy realms, CDDA is based in New England after *something* happened and all kinds of krazy crap attacked. It
takes place in the year 2040 so there are robots, CBMs (cybernetic enhancements) Mutagens and all kinds of other wacky stuff. You can even be a
Cannibal Clown, if that's your bag.
If however, you are a spoiled gamer used to flashy graphics with gameplay that is about as entertaining as playing 'ball in a cup' then this game
may not be for you. YOU WILL DIE! A lot. Trust me. Think I'm kidding, just go to a hospital.
I have been playing this game for over a year now, it is an ASCII roguelike but it does support a variety of tilesets (Chesthole is my favorite) but
you may, depending on your familiarity with such games, enjoy playing a more bare bones version.
Any CDDA players here? Lets swap survival stories and funny epithets.
I remeber one character I was playing, I was inadvertantly wielding a plum that I had picked from a plum tree and another survivor ambushed me and
said "Drop the effing plum!" as though the plum were a threat to him. I roleplayed like my character was about to take a bite of the plum and was
completely caught off gaurd and then killed the poor sap with a modified chainsaw.
Good times. Something to help you all get started and give a little preview of what the game is like:
CDDA is easily one of THE BEST games I have ever played. Ever I love it and figured I would share it with the gamers of ATS.
