Some friends and I are getting together over our conveniently placed spring break to try to put together an Oculus enabled roguelike game.  (Using procedural generation & permadeath, but likely not turn based...)  We want an exploration focused game, rewarding the player for careful observation.  We plan to build in Unity.  Mostly starting a thread to have a link for the 7DRL game registration page, but any advice, comments, or cantankerous quibbles are much appreciated.

Should be interesting if it works out. I've wondered about Oculus roguelikes before. Of course almost no one owns an Oculus, but never mind eh?  :P

Success!....By our standards.

We set out to write a roguelike in a language none of us knew (C#) using an engine none of us had used before (Unity3d) on prototype hardware (Occulus Rift) in a domain we have no previous project experience in (rogue-likes). So after a week, being able to generate progressively larger levels, and wander through them with a 3d VR headset feels like success, even if the available game-play is basically limited to finding the hole down into the next floor.

And so we present TBMBAD!
