Back From the Black (for 7 days)
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!
