I should own up to not finishing my 7-Day Roguelike challenge this year… it was tough to admit defeat after two fairly successful years in a row. I had started up the Jam with plans to take last year’s 7DRL code and work in a campaign and convoy mechanics, as a way to prove out some things that I’d been considering for Auto Fire. However, I found it nothing but discouraging to work on such old decrepit code, trying to make something for a game that was so much farther along.
In the end it just made me want to push towards realizing those ideas in the current codebase of Auto Fire instead. Sooooo… I’d been working on tying up loose ends and prepping the driving feel and visuals of Auto Fire. Take a quick look:
Next up are my plans for improving the inventory and rounding out the campaign into a compelling loop. It should provide some much-needed depth, which will make me more happy to share my work more widely once it’s in. Wish me luck!
