The 7 Day Roguelike Challenge is a game jam where participants make a roguelike in 7 days. This year I’m making a game called “Skeleton Crew” where you fight undead things on a spaceship. I’ll post updates to this site as I make progress.

The Plan

I’m going to start with the glacial codebase. I plan to implement the following features:

  • guns
  • shooting the hull can cause a breach and vent the atmosphere from connected parts of the ship
  • you need oxygen in your suit to survive in vacuum
  • oxygen drains while you’re in vacuum, and recharges while you’re in atmosphere.
  • as atmosphere is vented, characters and items are sucked towards, and possibly out of, the breach
  • flamethrower that doesn’t penetrate the hull but only works in atmosphere
