RogueLike is a chat-generated RPG. It is a game hosted by the fictitious company of Dungeon Inc., which is attempting to create the "perfect" RPG scenario. The series premiered on HyperRPG in January 2018. The show was mainly GMed by Zac Eubank, before being replaced on a permanent basis by Kelly Nugent.

Format Edit

RogueLike is conducted with participation from the chatroom. Prior to each show, the RogueLike database  is open for audience submissions of genres, settings, characters, strengths, weaknesses, and hidden agendas.

The goal for each simulation is to complete one's hidden agenda without being called out on it by another player.

The rules for the show have varied over the show's run; prior to episode 19, simulations would end upon the completion of a player's hidden agenda.

In episode 19, Head Analyst Kelly from Corporate (Kelly Nugent) implemented new rules wherein a simulation would continue for a set time-limit (approximately one hour), and a hidden agenda completed will award the player ten points. Each participant will have three lives each, and each life is worth five additional points at the end of the simulation.

Along with the new game rules awarding overall victories based on points, in episode 23, the RogueLike Championship Belt was introduced. This belt would be awarded to the winner of a night's simulations, with the winner returning the following week to defend it (and vacating it if they should be unable to return).

In accordance with HyperRPG's mission of interactivity, viewers may influence the results of the game through an incentive-based donation system. The incentives have varied throughout the show's run.

Currently, viewer donations have the ability to compel a character to explain why they have a particular weakness, to assign them an addition fear, to force a player to take their medication (and receive a side-effect), to switch the genre of the simulation, or to generate a side-quest for the players.
