mishmash mixup

I guess the night before the challenge is over is a good time to throw up a post of what I have been working on.

I started out the week trying to build something that would be turnbased, but wouldn’t have any death condition. I was also planning on making it not random gen, and just getting as close as possible to the feeling of a roguelike while breaking as many rules as possible. It took me about two days to realize this was a bad idea, but at least I got some pretty pictures out of it.

I then took a day off to feel bad about the fact that I could see another failed 7drl looming ahead of me. This was probably not the right reaction, but I had really high hopes for this year, I feel like I finally hit a stride, and had figured out what went into a roguelike (heck I made a pretty good one last week :D).

After that, I decided to switch back to a FPS roguelike idea that I had been kicking around for a while. I ripped out a bunch of the level gen code that I had been using, and started working on enemies and weapons. It has been really slow going for some reason, I think the pressure of this challenge is really setting me up to fail… I know I am going to get judged at the end, and am just doing a crappy job because of that.

Any ways, I have two enemies done, and weapon reloading in place.

There is still a ton to get done tomorrow, but I am going to aim for maybe 6 levels total, and try to get a few weapons and new enemies in place for tomorrow before the deadline. Or I might give myself the weekend, because I took two days on the aborted idea, and I would really like to have something done for this one.

  1. I love the 2d sprites in the first picture and the 3d walls in the 2nd picture are great too.

    Try not to let the pressure get to you! I know it can though. If you don’t want to be judged with the score and everything you can always mark your 7drl as failed, and then it won’t be included with judging. Maybe knowing you have that option will allow you to develop, stress-free!

    Good luck.
