7DArrrL – Day 1

Avast there, ye scabrous dogs! Be it adventure ye lookin’ for? Be it treasure? Be it glorious battle on the high seas? Then ye been pressed aboard the right ship, me lad!

Right. That’s enough of that. This year, I’m making a pirate-themed roguelike that focusses on naval combat, a little like a slimmed-down version of Sid Meier’s Pirates!. Features:

– Minimalist 3D graphics (think Proteus, Wind Waker etc.)
– Real-time physics, but time stops to issue commands
– Procedurally generated islands (hopefully!)

I started this time yesterday, but I didn’t post until now in case it turned out that what I was trying to do was ridiculously overambitious. It turns out that it is, but I’m going to do it anyway.

Here’s what I have so far:

Why are there only two masts?  Because the last one's mizzen!
Why are there only two masts? Because the third one’s mizzen!
