I compared it to other RogueLike development team DCSS (Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup),
Notoriously for bad development direction.

As I wrote down the list, I was pleasantly surprised that he was not mentally twisted during 30 years of development,
and keep making good old URW for us. Thank you Sami!



Unreal world Sami :
1. I deleted chain mail because it was historically incorrect.
2. Player not going to eat human corpse unless they are in fetal situation.
3. I overhauled most of rituals so they are like real rituals rather than instant magic.
4. Sauna! Because it's just a bestest of all



DCSS team :
1. I want to pretend that I participated in the project, so I deleted a hunger meter and such.
2. I've never been beyond 3 runes and never made it with Orb of Zot, but I know Pandemonium needs to be overhauled.
3. Seldom used transmutation magics before, but I know hydra-form is better than Statue-form. (This instantly became a meme in Korean community)
4. I want to play as Pepe so I made frogkinds.
5. Centaurs are boring, so I replace them my Mary Sue species PaLeNtOnGa
6. So many male characters, so I "sterilized" them into female. Take that patriarchy.
