Back From the Black (for 7 days)

March 7th, 2010

So, um, I’ve not been very attentive to my little creation of over a year ago – Gruesome has alas been without any development whatsoever, and my time-deprived lifestyle means that it’s likely to stay that way, alas.  However it’s time for the 7 Day Roguelike competition again and I have what I think is a neat little idea to try out.  Hopefully I’ll have more time to complete it than last year’s effort… but, well, I still have a busy week otherwise so my hopes aren’t too high.

My idea is called “Toby the Trapper”, about a little gnome who must fight some ugly ogres and a wacky warlock.  Unable to harm the ogres he must rely on his superior speed and magical traps.  Like Gruesome this is a one-hit-kill game with little stats and extreme emphasis on careful movement.  With a bit of luck it’ll also be fun.

So, time for me to get dug in – see you in 7 days!

    You likely are – surprised there was anyone :) You doing reviews again this year? I wouldn’t mind contributing again if you are.

    I may be the only person in the world who’s RSSed this site, but go for your life, man. I can’t wait to see how it turns out.
