One Week Game
One Week Game - Roguelike
I was a lot shorter on time this week, I would say that all up I had about 1 day to work on this.
This time I was tackling a roguelike game. I thought it would be easy, I couldn’t be more wrong. Admittedly, I did re-write the whole thing from scratch 3 times.
The thing I learnt from working on this is that you need to plan for the big picture. Originally I started with a single room, which was great, until I needed to add more rooms, at which point I was royally screwed.
The game didn’t get to a playable state. The monsters will follow you around and that’s about it.
Features
Randomly spawning creatures
Generates new rooms on the fly and keeps track of the relationships to one another in an array. That is; What rooms the current room connects to
Independent canvas for background, foreground and interface. The plan for this was to have less re-draws and to have the foreground animated
Futures Plans
Might develop this game further

The game didn’t get to a playable state. The monsters will follow you around and that’s about it.
