    x Mataeus x has registered their disagreement about the genres applied to this game
    I wanted to vote for Space and Roguelike / Roguelike. Sadly none of those categories exist! Aerial vehicular combat just don't cut it.

    Space is not a genre though. If it was added as one, you would have to add stuff like fantasy, medieval etc aswell..
    I do agree it would be helpful,but i also believe it would be overkill.

    Personally i would be happy to have a few more "real genres" added instead of the current 3rd, first person and similar "genres"

    I also havent met two people ever, who could agree on the definition of roguelike. So i expect that would start quite a few arguments also.

    We don't have rogueliks/roguelite at the moment but it's something I'd personally be in favour of and I have brought it up to hopefully discuss in the future.

    Roguelikes main gameplay features are turn-based combat, randomized levels and complete permadeath with no saved progress.

    Roguelites have the same randomized levels to some degree but combat can be either turn-based or real-time. Progress between plays is persistent.

    This should be roguelite now right?

    I haven't played yet, but every discussion I see indicates that is the case.

    Clown let me know about this thread (as he is not on the Genre Team). I've created a staff-side thread to review this. We'll report back with a decision. Thanks.

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you guys. Neither Clown nor Zonrith are with the team but, in the future, you can either create a new disagreement or message me or Allgorhythm with questions.

    That said we agree with the request and have added the roguelite genre. Thanks for the submission!

    clap Yay! Just waiting on the X patch and then I will play this! Thanks for the hard work! I know the genre team is mostly thankless work with people yelling at you.

    Yeah thank you!! :) Somehow there was no option for another disagreement or at least I didn't find it.

    You should have the option in the Game Information box, near the genres. It appears as a small question mark thingiemawhatsit.

    Yes that works. I think the confusion he's having is that if you get to this thread from the "my forums" link you will not get the option in the thread to file a disagreement. You have to click the question mark from the game page. I think I know why Rich made it that way and it's totally reasonable, but it can cause some confusion
