Is there a south-american themed RL? (inka/maya/atztec..etc)
« on: February 09, 2008, 08:55:10 PM »
I was just watching a documentary about the inkas. I have always been fascinated by those cultures. I think such a theme might be cool for a rouguelike - or is there already one? :)

I can't remember even non-roguelikes with such theme.

The closest thing I know is Paganitzu, released by Apogee in 1991. It wouldn't qualify as a roguelike, but it's a nice little puzzle game, and by now it's freeware.

There is the H-World engine, by Hajo, which is entirely precolumbian.

The game should have possibility to sacrifice living creatures by capturing them and leading them to altar.

And totems that turn you into an eagle or a wolf or a bear (I don't know if thats South-American or not, but it would still be pretty cool none-the-less)

Definitively, a jaguar instead of a wolf
