You can start any time Saturday or Sunday, and you must finish within a week of your starting point.  The latest you can do is midnight Sunday to midnight Sunday.  If you start after Sunday you must still finish by midnight Sunday.

Really? Because this is what I'm reading in the rules on 7drl.org:
Quote
To par­tic­i­pate, fol­low these sim­ple steps:
 
1) Any time on March 9th to March 17th (as mea­sured in your time
 zone), reg­is­ter on http://​7drl​.roguetem​ple​.com.
2) Write a rogue­like.
3) After 168 hours, if you have com­pleted a playable rogue­like, add your
 down­load link to 7drl​.roguetem​ple​.com!  If not, set your sta­tus
 to failed and we will all com­mis­er­ate and agree that given a few scant
 more hours, it could have been great.
Looks like the deadline is 168 hours after the time you begin, which can be any time during that week.

It should say "Any time on March 9th/10th to March 16th/17th".  This has always been the way!

  You can start whenever just get it done by that last Sunday, at midnight. I guess you could technically get 8 days in that time frame, but heck you could start today and just lie if you wanted.

  We use the honor system.

You can't get 8 days in, that would be cheating.  You'd have to be a weird insecure loser to cheat at this  :-/

With only a few days left I'm flip-flopping over what I want to do.  I have my dice-combat idea fairly rigorously planned out now, but perhaps for precisely that reason I'm now lacking any enthusiasm for actually implementing it.  I'm now more drawn towards the idea of a sort of pseudo-3D Dungeon-Master-style first person roguelike, although I don't know if I could actually implement that in only 7 days...

Paul I am in the exact same boat. Still trying to figure out what to do.

  Waffling is part of the process. Pick something you have a solid chance at completing.

yeah that's my problem I make games that are way to large. I was throwing around the idea of you playing as a monster in a RL. Just cause I think it might be fun to have the player be a gelatinous cube. You just wander this dungeon eating everything in your path.

  I had a similar idea, called it A Slime Draws Near. You eat different stuff and it acts as temporary buffs, ammo, etc...like if you eat a person you get more 'slime'(food) so can live longer, eat an item like a sword and you get tougher for awhile. You are pretty much immune to all but fire, so it's mostly a resource management game.

  But most RL's are like that anyway, in a way.

so I figured out what I am doing, but the combat might be a little more JRPG then standard Roguelike. as I am thinking of doing room based combat instead of tile based. so that might be a bit odd. but i think everything else is going good.

Well it's a roguelike, doesn't have to be a cookie cutter copy :P

For people who haven't noticed(It's on the roguetemple homepage :P) but 7DRL's registration is open :)

Today, I'm gonna crash and burn trying to meet two deadlines, which will spill over into next week. Insha'Allah, I'll be done with them by Wednesday, as my mother arrives to visit her grandkids (and their father), staying until Sunday. Not an auspicious week for a 7drl, but I may at least register a doomed-to-fail project just for the sake of statistics :P
