Latest Mac Demo HERE

Do you have game maker 7 for windows? Would you like to do a compile for me?

---------------------------------------

Started a game for 7DRL doing an action dungeon crawler with random generation. I barely had time to work on it during the week so i'm finishing it now as it's own thing. Probably sank about 16 hours in so far.



The core idea is that enemies spawn with a random weapon, usable by player too. Blink Each enemy has a unique movement / ranging scheme.

Weapons are color coded; a red monster will alway shoot a boomerang and a blue one will drop a bomb.

That shimmy is SO GOOD! Smiley
Really think you should stick with that art style and redo the tiles to fit it. Gameplay sounds/looks fun too.

Update #2 - starting generation


the beginnings of reading map data from a text file! as much as a pain in the ass as game maker can be this is relatively painless.


rotation is working! both negative and positive. I hope to reuse rooms through rotation. This means there's only 4 types of rooms. dead ends, elbow bends, t-junctions, and fourways!


after laying the rooms out in a grid, put a grey wall block below the black ones to give 3d effect

Update #2.5 - macro room connection generation

I'm using two techniques, layered, to make my dungeon.


Using the generator concept from spelunky to create a guaranteed path between two points. It starts from the top going left and right, dropping down if it hits a wall or sometimes if it just feels like it. Check out Darius' sick tutorial on the subject!


Secondly using noise + a healing function to get close to 100% connectivity. If any room has an exit into another room, it ensures that destination room has an exit facing back, I also remove exits pointing out of the map.


Final result, layering noise on top of guaranteed path.




Works for any size floor, note there are rooms entirely off the path, but we dont care because we are ROGUES

UPDATE #2.999 FINALLY



This is the room grid generator using text-file tile data and rendered in the same way the current static game works. AKA I just gotta drop in my mobs and start position and we're DONE WITH GENERATION


exploring the new dungeon, alone...
