Created in 2.5 day for the 7DRL (in monkey2). No monsters or sound yet. But I can hear scratching…!March 12, 2018 at 2:48 pm #13983
Ran without issues in a 2015 Macbook pro mostly in full screen.
A couple suggestions:
You could tone down the amount of flickering in the lights, it strobes quite a lot right in the BG now.
When you click on a tile that expands the set, it could have a different icon/color to indicate that.

Looks good. No Linux version. 🙁March 13, 2018 at 3:05 am #13990
This looks awesome, I can’t wait to see this develop into a game!
For reference, it’s a bit slow on my early 2014 MacBook Air but still playable.March 13, 2018 at 8:18 am #13996
ah. thats interesting to know about the slowness on a MacBook Air. I’ve only tested it on an old MacBook.
Ver1.02 is now upped
included monsters, gold, and permadeath…March 14, 2018 at 1:29 am #14016
Yeah, this MBA isn’t very good for 3D acceleration. Pretty much any 3D game chugs at least a tiny bit.March 14, 2018 at 3:20 am #14017
Nice game Adam!

Coming along really nice!
Here are some more (unsolicited…) suggestions!
. The character spinning is a bit distracting, and it happens too often. Why not change its angle only on movement/action?
. It would be great if the camera animated quickly to the new location when the area changes, instead of teleporting. It’s a bit disorienting.
. Since I play in a laptop with the trackpad, it would be great if I had an alternative way to rotate the camera that allowed me to use the left hand, so that my right hand is always on the trackpad, the left hand always on the camera keys (I.e. Z and X keys, or something similar). Currently I have to move my right hand away from the trackpad, then back.
This would be a great mobile game, since the control scheme would work without compromise with touch controls. Are you planning on it?

My record so far, by the way…

Great suggestions. I’ll look into them all for you 🙂
Mobile is a really interesting suggestion. I’ve never compiled for ios, but I do have devices…March 17, 2018 at 8:32 am #14045
It’s still a bit flickering for me..
I’ve been stuck in a bug? Could enter the zone but not come back..
