I am not familiar with the game but it sounds interesting from what I read on the web. Very cool!
Have you heard of NetHack?
Right yes … I have heard of that but can’t say I have played it. If you can build a dungeon generator, that would be very cool.
Well this has a dungeon generator, but this one if more of a hollowed out cave with winding passages than rooms with hallways etc. It’s easy to find C code online for dungeon generation
I would be so happy to be able to play a rogue-like on my Arduboy. Did you ever complete that port? If so, is it possible for you to release a .hex or .arduboy for it? I used to play Nethack a lot when i was a kid. It was pretty much endless fun for me.
If you like roguelikes then you might like Dark & Under.
It’s a roguelike-like game with a pseudo 3D viewport on the left and a map on the right. It’s inspired by games like Dungeon Master and The Legend Of Grimrock.
As much as i wanted to like Dark & Under, to me at least, it’s not the same thing. It may be just my personal nostalgia, i just really played a lot of ASCII gfx rogue-like. The game maps always felt like if the were HUGE in those games, and my imagination did all the rest. Just to explain it better, I like DiabloRL (which is a diablo remake but more like a ASCII rogue-like style) better then the real commercial Diablo. yes i may be a freak
Unfortunately I think all the character-based roguelikes are still WIP.
The only other I could find is Snarl:
There’s Rogueboy if you’re interested in something tile based, though I think it’s also not completely finished.
So is it finished? If so could you release a copy.
I’ve played NetHack and had a look at ZigClimb and both are really cool games. I would love to be able to play this on my Arduboy. https://twitter.com/garycmartin/status/748662226458808320
I found this game, which is a bit like NetHack. Though I’m not sure if it’s released.
No, been busy. I should see about just releasing something simple - the basics of things work just fine.
When do you think you’ll release ZigClimb. Thanks
The desire intensifies.
I’ve put a couple of hours into nethack. But I used some graphic overlays most of the time. Guess i don’t got the geekyness to work myself into ascii. Sadly.
Any news or updates? Really excited to play this.
I’m pretty sure he would post something if he had done it. Time to take up the mantle. Dreamer3 is not just a man… it’s an idea…
@Dreamer3 I saw you were online recently and I wanted to know if I could download this somewhere?
Not yet. I still think it’s in too rough a shape to share the source. I have been playing with it a little bit as I’ve been writing my Terminal library. Switching to a 3x5 font really gives it a much better feel. So time will tell.
Would you be happy with a HEX file to try?
Yes that would be great. Will it brick my arduboy?
Why would it brick it?
If I get it working decent with my Terminal library I might push a binary.
