This will be my fourth 7DRLC and this time I’ve decided to create a game set into the Old West. There certainly aren’t too many roguelikes (or any games for that matter) with that theme.
In the game, you play as the sheriff of a randomly generated frontier town which will contain all the basics such as a saloon, hotel, bordello, bank and church. Player’s task is to defend the town from bandits, catch criminals etc. in randomly generated missions that appear dynamically.
This game will feature a bit deeper role-playing elements than my previous 7DRLs. Still, my main focus will be modelling a lively town to explore, and interesting, varying “quests” to accomplish.
I’ve yet to decide on the name but these are potential candidates: Sheriff, Lawman, A Town Called Mercy, A Town Called Hope. The game will be playable in a modern web browser using my own (recently updated!) Unicodetiles.js engine (that I also used last year).
