So, this being my first time attempting the 7drl I feel a bit bad that I couldn’t come up with a better name for my project. I might change it later if I come up with a better one (shouldn’t be too hard).
Project dog is inspired mainly by the Total war series and Hoplite. I plan on having regiment based combat like that seen in Total war games whilst having movement based combat mechanics like those found in Hoplite. Instead of having control of multiple regiments the player will only control a single regiment, taking on the role of the sergeant.
In order to document the development of what will hopefully turn into a semi-complete game I’ll attempt to write up a short summary each day of the challenge. Regardless of the outcome I hope the experiences of a first time 7drl’er will provide some entertainment value.
