EtRD - Enter the Roguelike Dimension
« on: February 14, 2013, 09:51:15 AM »
Enter the Roguelike Dimension (EtRD)

EtRD is a fully 3D roguelike with it's graphics based on its ascii ancestors. Rather than focusing on creating expensive and complex graphics it will instead focus on a stylised graphics style and compelling gameplay.

Check http://lyeeedar.blogspot.co.uk/ for the latest updates and releases!

Gameplay

The game runs in real time (not turn-based) and is completely in first person. The levels and enemies will be procedurally generated and therefore the game will contain permadeath.

A unique feature of the game is an extensive crafting system. All enemies will drop components (rather than equipment) when they are killed which can be used to craft items. You will obtain recipes throughout the game that describe the shape of an item, made up of a series of slots. In these slots any component can be placed. For example, a sword is made from a hilt, a blade core and a blade edge. In each of these 3 slots you can place any component (for example, stone as the hilt or fur as the blade edge) and the resulting item's stats will be based on the properties of the components used. This should hopefully make the crafting system much more interesting.

Eventual Game Features:
    Procedurally Generated Levels
    Unique Static levels (Bonus levels, story levels etc)
    Procedurally Generated Enemies
    Unique Boss Monsters
    Extensive Crafting System (Used to make all your equipment)
    Extensive Spell crafting system
    Dynamic Story

Implemented Features:
    Procedurally Generated Levels
    Procedurally Generated Enemies
    Extensive Crafting System
    Combat System
    Basic Enemy AI
    Spell System

Sounds excellent!   8)    Have you got a site up and/or a reckoning on the dev pace and intro of the first public release just yet?

Ive added a link to my blog in the original post. Ill be posting updates on there regularly as I progress :p

Early playable release I'm aiming to have done in the next 2 months. Stuff that needs to be completed before then:

UI Screens <- Current task (4 more screens to do, should take me roughly a week)
Better enemy AI
Dialogue system (for tutorials and stuff)

Once that lot is done then it should be at the point where I just need to make content for a while, along with testing for any super major bugs. As I go along I'll post playable .jar's on my blog for anyone that is interested to try it :)

Stuff after that:

More weapon types
Spell system
Music
Quests

Then it'll be beta!

Updated the OP with videos. Just made the framework for the spell system, and fixed a myriad of other things. Check my blog to get a playable .jar :)
