Hi! I was just looking for a game jam to join and came across this awesome challenge. I hope you don't mind if I participate :3

Rogue Artillery is a turn-based roguelike game about a clever use of gravity.

It's pretty much Worms, but with a single playable unit. More like a roguelikish Scorched Earth.

That's a very pretty map generator.

I'm looking forward to seeing how you turn this into a roguelike. Scorched Earth is automatically more interesting than bump-attack so that's very promising. Doing satisfying exploration seems hard. Use-identifying weapons in one of these sounds absolutely hilarious (in a good way).

Haha, yeah, it may be fun. I'm actually working on a random weapon generator right now.
I'm not sure about exploration. I don't have time to deal with it :3

Still don't know how are you going to implement true roguelikeness into your game, but it looks really nice. I like the idea of random weapon generator :) Altought, contrast between terrain and background could be greter - at least for me, this background looks like just-another-colour-of-terrain.

Good luck!

Maybe it is not true roguelikeness, I'm not an expert at all :3

The game is available on itch.io: https://artees.itch.io/rogue-artillery?password=7drl
It has a lot of obvious problems, but I hope you'll like the idea. Enjoy!

Can anybody help me with updating my game on http://7drl.roguetemple.com/ ? I think I remember my password correctly, but it says it's not valid. I also can't recieve an email to recover it.

Same thing happened to me, so I just made a new entry. I'm also sure I couldn't have made typos both for email and password --- maybe there was a bug, I'm sure they'll sort it out once the dust settles :).

Thanks, just made a new entry too. I should've done this earlier, I guess.

Is it endless? I'm at level #20, and my kit is so good I seem unable to lose!

Edit: Ah lol, I may have encountered a game breaking bug that ended this run anyways! I *think* what might have happened was i used a planetball bomb and it completely covered up an item. The turn never seemed to finish, so i'm just sorta stuck heh.  ;D

Haha, sorry about that!
Yes, it's endless. I didn't have enough time to make an ending.
Thanks for playing and the bug report.
