So I managed my first roguelike finished in time and it didn’t turn out too bad in the end, although it involved staying up until 3am last night as I had misread the rules and thought I had until Sunday rather than a week exactly after you started. It was fun but very tiring.
It can be played online here: http://tjs.itch.io/into-the-darkness
The game involves playing cards to boost your attack and defence when battling monsters over 5 dungeon levels. Once played the cards disappear and you have to use new ones. Shuffle cards when you’re stuck or discard old ones to regain HP.
I played through it last night and it is actually pretty fun considering.
