As a newcomer to 7DRL but not roguelikes, I will be participating this year.
I have decided I would develop with C using devkitpro / PALib as the library for building for the Nintendo DS. The reason why I chose this platform is for the same reason that I decided to get into roguelikes. It is a portable solution to take anywhere and play when I need some dungeon fun. I started playing POWDER because of this, and it was fun.
Anyways, as my first time making a 7-day roguelike, I decided I would stick with a simple concept, not. I still have not come up with the idea completely, but hopefully I’ll have something by Saturday because that’s when it obviously starts! It’ll be a fun coding challenge and I hope that with this my programming experience will be enhanced ten-fold.
Cannot wait to see how it turns out, I guess I will end up posting daily outcomes as may others.
