What are the rules? use existing code, but all new content? Sounds interesting, I have an idea already, might be too hard to implement.

  Not sure I updated the doc correctly. I have been having trouble with googledocs. Anyway I'll give it a go tomorrow. It'll be more of a concept test but hey that's what we do with these half the time anyway.

Use what you see fit - just have a new game in 24 hours that did not exist before :)

  Well people I failed my 1DRL. My plan was to take an existing real time maze game that came with my programming tutorial and add a procedurally based dungeon. Just one largish level.
  It was just too much. So what I ended up with was totally unfinished and unplayable.

Bilebio is a pretty neat concept, I quite liked the plant growth visuals. Hope jab fleshes it out some more.

Failed before I even started - this was definitely a bad time to catch a cold. No programming like that. :'(

Thanks for trying it!
It is coded in Ruby and uses the ncursesw gem for ncurses and mongodb for storing scores. It was built on the current state of the engine for my not-finished-game Svirfneblin.

You can find the source for Cave Santa at https://github.com/jraregris/cave-santa, and Svirfneblin here: https://github.com/jraregris/svirfneblin.
