Is it me or does every group activity on the internet have an impenetrable acronym? Well, 7DRL is the International 7-Day Roguelike Challenge for 2015. Day one and I’ve got a rando warrior ambling around slaying bears… despite the ridiculously beautiful Seattle weekend peeking in through the study window. (guh)
The old-school sprite art was purchased for a very reasonable $35 from Oryx… Granted, his popularity means I am using the same damn art as something like 40-50 games on Steam right now. If you’ve frequented Steam sales, you’ve seen this guy a lot lately…
Luckily Unity can help me set apart the experience a little visually, including a trick learned from folks at Unite 2014. I also picked up a small dungeon generator library at a recent Asset Store sale, but the coding style is so different from the way I like to work, I’m not sure any of it’s going to get used… Such is the way of buying script plugins.
The goal of Huge is to create an experience I’ve toyed with over the years, which is to have a large, unbeatable creature wandering the dungeon, until the player manages to collect the means to defeat him. We’ll see if I can get something big and not derpy… Ideally you should fear its approach. I’ll try to keep info posted here and in my 7DRL entry.
