7DRL is great also because it provides an opportunity to expertiment completely new gameplay mechanics.
What are your favourites?
Some awesome ones I remember:

- Darkness
The fact that darkness gradually turns you mad.. you start hallucinating stuff.. and mind becomes matter.. truly metaphysical, innovative, and also fun to play.

- A Quest Too Far
Instead of grinding your way to minmaxxing your character, you start already strong and well equipped, and your strenght vanishes the more time you spend in the dungeon. Innovative and fun.

- Kobolds
Fight your way through a horde of kobolds.. who keeps throwing small missiles at you, insulting, and evade you. Very fun.
What I enjoy the most in roguelikes: Anti-Farming and Mac Givering my way out. Kind of what I also enjoy in life.

I wish I could play more 7DRLs so I could tell. Actually I may get into trying a bunch from this year so I can discuss them.

I'm sure there are interesting takes there.

PrincessRL has an interesting progression dynamic, and the fighting system is frankly better than most full fledged finished games. I've hardly checked out any 7DRLs the last few years, sadly.

As always,

Well, in my opinion best innovative gameplay mechanics that I have notices in 7DRL game is rich resource, creativity, Mirror reflection puzzle and spatial memory.
Thanks
