• Meters Below the Ground

    Meters Below the Ground is a short tactical dungeon-crawler about escaping from an insectoid-infested facility. Complete objectives to unlock more meters for your character so you might stand a chance against the alien threat.

    It is my entry in the 7 Day Roguelike game jam for 2018.

    Tonight I added new meters and objectives.

  • 7 Day Roguelike 2018: NPCs

    Tonight I added all the NPCs! I’ve followed an insect theme, and NPCs transform based on an insect lifecycle. Levels begin populated with eggs and larvae. Eventually, the eggs hatch into more larvae, and the larvae turn into chrysalises. The chrysalises hatch into either an arachnoid - a fast enemy, which takes 2 turns for every turn the player takes - or a beetoid, which acts at normal speed, but has more health. There’s also a super egg which hatches into a queen, which I’ll use for missions.
