Grendel's Mother released!
« on: September 24, 2009, 06:37:48 AM »
I started this earlier today, trying to make a <1/2KBRL. I didn't succeed. By the time I was done, I had a roguelike which took 7 and a half hours, and was 4.4KB in source code size. So it's a <5KBRL which is just as fine with me. Since it was done in 7 and a half hours, it's also an 8HRL I suppose.

It's pretty simple, you are Beowulf, diving through Grendel's lake to kill Grendel's mother at the bottom. You have a limited amount of health, and there is no leveling. The goal is to reach the bottom of the lake (Level 8 ) and kill Grendel's mother. Pretty simple, but it has a nice dungeon generator. I'm happy with it!

It's only story is various text quoted from Beowulf.

I can't run it because I get an error. In the event log, its:

I'm running Vista.

Microsoft side by side error rubbish....
corremn's Roguelikes. To admit defeat is to blaspheme against the Emperor.  Warhammer 40000 the Roguelike

I may have fixed this, I just uploaded a new version as an attempt to fix this. If it still doesn't work, it might have something to do with me targeting x86 architecture instead of x64. So please report back if you can get the new version to work or not. Thanks for the bug report! :D
