It's changing into something I believe I have enough tools at the moment to do, an actual roguelike with some unique ideas. I'm retentively calling this project "Legend" for which I'll get to in a minute but first. Some progress in traditinal roguelike things. Random map generation.
|Ain't it pretty?|
I haven't seen any roguelikes that really have puzzles in them as far as I know. While I'm not attempting something exactly like being in the Legend of Zelda vein It's going to have the same basic idea. You get a tool in the temple, use tool on parts of the puzzle to proceed further. The very basic isn't hard to imagine, just have to have the tool before the parts that require it but I still expect it to have a lot of bugs in coding.
Now I'm not going for ZeldaRoguelike completely but to say this isn't inspired by it would be a lie. What I will be doing is taking the puzzle elements, "puzzle" bosses (if I can), and some other features. Things like Hyrule, rupies, heart containers, Master sword, Triforce, and Ganon will most likely not be making the transition. I'll be making a goal list later at home for what I want to do with this project but I am very excited about it as I actually think it's feasible for me with what I've made.
