IfRL 7dRL Released. And a call for beta-testers.
« on: February 10, 2010, 08:29:58 PM »
So, I made a 7-day roguelike. It also happens to be a work of interactive fiction. Finally, the two great genres of ASCII video games unite. Er... finally?

It's a little bit barebones, but it was my first experience with the insane 7dRL development schedule. I have, in fact continued to develop the project since the end of the seven days but, in the interest of keeping true to the 7dRL spirit, I will not be releasing the extended game as a new version of IfRL. Instead, I am growing it into a new, larger game. Hopefully this new game will draw more heavily on the unique strengths the interactive fiction environment can bring, while maintaining a strict roguelikeness.

If anyone is interested in helping me beta-test my continuing efforts, please get in touch with me at: <a href="mailto:frank@256k.org">frank@256k.org</a>

In the meantime, please enjoy IfRL: <a href="http://256k.org/IFRL">http://256k.org/IFRL</a>

Wow, two great tastes that I'm sure will go great together!  I'll definitely check it out!

Edit: I've had a few minutes to play a runthrough of this game.  Very good stuff, imo.  I can't wait to see what you do next with this, and I'm going to keep playing for sure!
