Default Re: Victory!

I've now completed six victories: Tentaculons, Monks, Vordelaine, Resistance, Bankers, and Unifiers. I'm not sure how many other options there are. The Limoquee and Firax and Eaters and Pirates have quest lines I haven't followed yet. The Gruff and the Sigorn don't seem to have plot quests.

Of the ones I've finished, the Resistance quest was the best (classic space opera), the Bankers quest was the worst, and the Unifiers quest was by far the creepiest.

Victory under the Unifiers Story-Arc

Well, it took me 90 Sectors to do it, but I managed a victory completing the quest requirements of the Unifiers faction. I enjoyed this game immensely! For my part, I found this game to be pretty challenging, even playing on the Easy level, but with Permadeath on. As a Newbie to rogue-like games, I probably took close to 100 hours to win this game; but I was proceeding very methodically and carefully. I am pretty sure a more experienced player could have completed this game in about half the time!

As noted by Lord Felix above, the Unifiers story-arc takes a kind of creepy turn, toward the end; but I thought it was clever (and appropriate), and I have no complaints on that score. On the other hand, paradoxically, this "interesting" victory motivates me all the more, to pursue a different faction's story-arc, the next time I play.

But that is one mark of a good computer game: Keep 'em coming back for more ...

After many, many stupid deaths, I have achieved Victory with the Firax. I have reached sector 72. On the way I have also completed Tentaculons quest line and also Gruff, Pirates and Sigorn quest lines. I will continue to see If I can complete more quest lines. I am on easy level of course.

This might come as a surprise to some, but I never beat Approaching Infinity...Until yesterday!

Of course, I've beaten it plenty of times with various cheats and shortcuts, but this time I played fair, from start to finish. I also did it on easy, and with perma-death off. But I did it!

It only took about 2 hours. I also recorded it, and am putting it up on youtube in 5 parts.

I should also mention that in the next update, there is new background art for each of the 9 victories (and something extra special for one of them)

Hey, this is a pretty fun game

I found the Amulet of Yendor!

I don't think I've ever got the Amulet of Yendor before in a Roguelike game (and I've tried, starting in the 1980's...).

I couldn't bring myself to give it to the sleazy Bankers, though! So my adventure continues...

Hopefully I won't kill off too many more officers in this game - as you can see (the screenshot shows my log saying I got it, as well as my other stats such as: ) I've lost 12 officers and 73 crew in this game, including 4 officers and several men when I thought they'd survive opening their helmets deep in a cave, forgetting the atmosphere was toxic.

This is my fourth game of AI, and my first on Hard difficulty.
