ADOM in the media...

ADOM has been covered in a surprising number of magazines and articles posted to websites... probably a lot more than I know of (see the revised media license of ADOM for the current details on how to handle this). I do not really care whether you are going to write something good or something bad about the game (although I prefer the former ;-), but I'd just like to know that you are writing something about ADOM at all. I'll be getting copies of your article (or will have them sent to me - see the license) to be able to show that stuff to my kids in the years to come (once I have some). Thanks for listening.

If you know of any other magazines/websites covering ADOM, please let me know about it. If you were able to provide me with a complimentary copy of print publications I'd bery eternally grateful :-)

So far I'm aware of the following products covering ADOM:

Games Domain Review
It's a bit old but it's well-written and a good review ;-) Thanks for the kind words to Daniel Gemmer for the review. Review
Vault Network had an article about roguelike games and an interview with me.
Vault Network Interview
Vault Network has lots of news about the current computer rpg scene. Very interesting to read if you are interested in that topic. They also post regular news regarding ADOM (thanks folks, it feels nice to run the headlines along with the big players ;-). Some time ago they asked me to do an interview and you can read about it here.
Die Pöppel-Revue Nr. 6/97
Pöppel-Revue @-Warrior This nice german boardgame magazine (buy it!) has a very nice article concerning ADOM. Very funny to read and the author seems to enjoy ADOM. The only sad thing about the whole story is that they never told me about that article. Hadn't it been for a lucky coincidence I never would have seen it. The article is located on pages 58-60.
Gambler Magazine 8/98
Gambler This polish magazine has a very nice article about roguelike games in general, where all major games are covered. It also sports a CD with all the games (and more fun stuff) on it. Great magazine and they sent me three complimentary issues, so that I'm very happy. Now I just wish I could understand the polish language... if someone has a translation of that article available, let me know. I'm getting quite a lot of polish postcards these days, BTW. Thank you!
PC Chip 17/98
PC Chip This croatian magazine covers ADOM 0.9.9 Gamma (pages 93-94). I already got a translation of the article and would like to thank the publisher for the two complimentary copies.

American Gods Thomas Biskup recommends: American Gods
"I really have been enjoying Neil Gaiman lately. The man is a great storyteller, sports incredible mythological knowledge and really knows how to turn wheels within wheels. I really loved the story plot of this book: Where do all the gods (and other mythological beings) go, when their believers get fewer and fewer? A situation particularly problematic in the United States, where emigrants where concerned with the new world, new beliefs and new freedoms. An ex-convict gets hired by a (more or less) mysterious Mr. Wednesday and starts a weird trip through the US... wacky staff but very good reading. And it nicely shows how to build metaplots and loosen a story up with interesting side characters."

More details about this item can be found here: United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Germany.

In Association with Amazon Please support this website by going to Amazon through one of the links on this website (if you want to shop at Amazon at all that is ;-). It doesn't cost you any surcharge, but provides me with ADOM-related income. Thanks!
