Bug - 3 I'm developing a roguelike

Yep! My recent rediscovered obsession with ADOM has compelled me to return to an old dream project of mine and create an epic large-scale roguelike game.

ITT I will share my progress, trials, and tribulations. When I get around to creating working bits of code I can share them with you guys. I’m making it in C++ & SDL, fyi.

I will also be taking suggestions here. Anything from all-encompbuming game mechanics to specific items, artifacts, and buffs/spells. Please don’t **** this thread up with crap suggestions, but don’t be afraid to speak up and tell me your idea either.

The theme and feel I’m going for is kind of wacky/comedic but also with some genuinely freaky horror elements. In a medieval-ish fantasy setting I guess, but you don’t have to stick TOO much to that, there can be the occasional more modern thing.

EXAMPLES OF GOOD IDEAS:

– a grenade with fairies in it

– a stone glove artifact that acts like battletoads – on critical hits it turns into a giant anvil/something and bashes the **** out of enemies (downside is you have to be fighting barehanded for it to work)

– a wrestler clbum that deals extra damage when wielding chairs

– dungeons made of flesh that slowly digest the character and any monsters inside, and reacts to being dug into and such.

Obviously not all of the good ideas that will be forthcoming will make it in, but at the very least the brainstorming is a big help. Sometime later i’ll comment on where I am in the development right now. It’s going to be an extremely long arduous process and I’m hoping to use this thread as motivation and incentive, so if you see it go inactive for a while, bump it up and ask me what the ****!

That’s it

Love,

BoP

Wow, I surely will subscribe to this thread.

Good luck with the programing, and have fun with it.

Btw will it be a fantasy medival game? Or some sort of difrent game? I always tought a fantasy futuristic game in a post apocaliptical enviroment would be cool.

well, i haven’t really settled down on any kind of distinct style yet. as i said in the OP i’m leaning towards a general theme of medieval fantasy, but not TOO locked into it.

I’m willing to consider completely different scenarios, i’ll be thinking about it. Right now I’m just working on getting the graphics to work so I have something to work with Log in to see images!

Jesus. Well, hopefully you won’t be *too* disheartened by the fact that ADoM took like seven years to make, right?

I think it would be wise to get a working prototype as quickly as possible. You want to be able to see the results immediately, it will be difficult to motivate yourself if you can’t try out your code while you’re working with it. I’m going to think about this some more and hopefully I can come with some real suggestions later.

That’s my first priority Log in to see images! Right now my ONLY goals are making an extremely rudimentary map generator, control system, and graphic engine set up. Once I have that and I can actually walk around my little dungeon I’m going to do some work on a random map generator that I can be happy with. I’ll figure it out from there.

But every step, I absolutely have to be able to test it as soon as possible. That’s the only way I’ll be able to keep myself going.

Can the baby be a cannibal that eats its way out of your womb, or in the case of male characters, your colon?

I’m envisioning demonic pregnancy as a very bad thing for a lawful (your god will shun you, and the baby will eat it’s way out/attack you when it’s born. It wouldn’t be quite so bad for a chaotic though (or, if i opt not to go with the clbumic lawful/chaotic system, it could be good for someone who is pledged/affiliated with the underworld in some way, since you could get a powerful loyal pet out of it.

In any case, hunger costs would be doubled (you’re eating for the baby too) and it would add to your weight as well. maybe miscarriages?

perhaps it would be very difficult to happen unless you willingly offer yourself up to him, which would balance it somewhat towards the lawfuls.

But hey, why am i obsessing about some potential complicated feature now? one step at a time Log in to see images!

A boss type level. The boss level is just a single room with the single boss in the middle.

The boss will be Rick Astly. The only attacks he has is hand to hand. The only skil he has is called “Rick Roll” When he uses this skill a segment from the song plays.

It starts from the begging and goes to the end in maybe 5 seconds durations? The song itself just stuns you for about 3 seconds afterwards. The catch is, if he gets through the ENTIRE song. Right as he finishes it you recive 99999999 dmg and die.

How about an enemy who’s special power is that it can delete your save files? You could come up with some sort of reason, like it “eats the threads of time” or something.

do you know what a roguelike is?
