Stygia: 7DRL Success

Another 7DRL success (this time with 6 minutes to spare in the end – total development time was 36 hours).

Stygia, a 7DRL for Windows can be downloaded here (executable + code, requires .NET 4 framework to run).



Its been released under the GPL v2.

The goal is simple: get to the bottom of the dungeon (10 levels deep) and find the gate to the Plane of Elemental Fire before you freeze to death.

Cheers to the chaps behind Libtcod & Libtcod.NET.

I think I’ll go and pass out for a few weeks now (joke). I’ll follow up with a post-mortem in a few days, and then I’ll start work on a non-7DRL bug-fix/refactored version, and then a Linux-compatible version using Mono.

But its been my first 7DRL and although hectic, its been bloody fun.

  1. I couldn’t get it to work! I installed .NET and tried it but got an error about not being about to load libtcod-net. I didn’t change anything from how you had it set up so it beats me. Hopefully it’s just a problem at my end and it still works for others.

  2. Unhandled Exception: System.BadImageFormatException: Could not load file or assembly ‘libtcod-net, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null’ or one of its dependencies. An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format.

  3. OK, I’ve uploaded a new version of the zip file, containing an updated Stygia.exe, which now was specifically compiled for x86 CPUs. See if that works.

  4. Eep! That’s not meant to happen. Can you save the game (‘S’) and zip up the contents of the save subdirectory and email it to me? (starbog AT gmail DOT com) I can debug it and take a look and see what the problem is, and hopefully fix it!
