This seems like a good place to keep updates, links and ramblings, as it seems others are doing it.

The announcement post on 7drl.org: http://7drl.org/2014/03/08/dartrl/
For those interested in the source, here's my git repository for this: https://bitbucket.org/JedimEmO/dart_7drl

Monday update: I added enemy entities to the game, and they follow the player around. For now, when they reach the player, the game ends.

There is still a couple of quirks with their pathing, but the basic animosity seems to be functioning properly.

Tomorrow will hopefully be spent adding player attacks and some rudimentary projectile animation.

Added the ability for player actions (like attacks), fixed a lot of bugs and made the map generator more versatile (at the very least less prone to breaking). Tomorrow will hopefully bring some animations, some more attacks and a victory condition.

My suggestion is to optimize it a little better. Right now, while it's decent otherwise, it tends to be a bit resource hungry, at least from what I've seen. Looking forward to the finished product. :)

Thanks for the feedback :) I'm getting pretty big generated JS from dart2js right now, that may be the resource hog you're mentioning.

Tonight was spent adding a smoke attack that engulfs an enemy in LOS blocking smoke. I also made a whitelsit of map seeds, that should prohibit some unfortunate generating times (I did once encounter an invalid start room, gonna have to improve the generator a bit more).

Other than that, I started attempting to balance the turn times of actions a bit to make it semi-playable.

Tomorrow I can hopefully squash a few more bugs, add a second level and some more sprites, and perhaps a victory condition (reaching the exit). Then polishing and finishing on saturday.

I'm considering my entry finished at this stage. I set my deadline to 4pm today (local Oslo time), it's now 4:41 and I'm pretty much happy with the current state. Of course I would like to add more features, optimize things and generally have the game be not-a-hack, but overall I'm satisfied.



Today I made a small help screen, and  I added a full set of GUI buttons to control the character. I tried playing the game on my Samsung tab 3, which worked fine. A bit slow, but fine. My phone was faster, but the resolution doesn't quit fit the game window. I might look into making it run on the S4 at some point.

The release build can be found here: http://www.memocomputers.com/7drl/. I will also create a release zip of the build for downloading at some point today.
