There are many. Crawl is one of the best in my opinion: http://crawl.develz.org/wordpress/

There is also a newsgroup for roguelike games, and a reddit as well i think. Lots of small new roguelikes being made all the time.

Also, i think wikipedia describes it just fine: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roguelike

So... What rougelike games that you played?
(It's a question for you all in the forum that read this)

For me I played:
- NetHack (Never finished it and not good at it, almost crazy at remembering the hot-keys)
- Crawl (More newbie-friendly* but still can't finished it)


*Maybe that's not a word

I believe "Elona" is considered a roguelike, I think it's pretty interesting and coded entirely in HSP which is a feat unto itself.
