Programming / Spell casting types of costs
« on: December 18, 2011, 10:27:32 AM »
I'm currently looking into the design of spell casting cost types and currently have designed the following options:

  • Mana
  • Health
  • Sacrifice of an ally

What I've been thinking about lately is whether I should ditch these (standard?) types and go for something slightly different and my thoughts led me to a combination of:

  • Mental fatigue
  • Cool down

I realise that in essence I'm swapping one inhibitor for another however I do think my second approach provides more tactical play for the player.

Does anyone know of another roguelike that uses my second approach - so I can take a look.
