So a guy who sat next to me in AP Computer Science and I made a roguelike for our final project. You are a man in a maze with randomly placed torches. You have to find the golden plunger before the "minotaur" (actually a dancing ditto) catches you.

Source here. Screenies soon.

WARNING: This is a project with SDL as its dependency and also has a windows-specific makefile atm (blame netbeans). If you want to make, I'll figure out how to make it setup-independent.
Well, I'm bach here too!

Coolio! Golden plungers are the best. :P

It seems to not work on Linux, but still, nice.

In the beginning there was walrii. In the end there will be walrii. All hail our supreme leader :walrii: --Snektron



if you wanna throw money at me and/or CodeWalrus monthly it's here

Nice to see a new program from you Pi. :D Do you think there will be a Windows executable in the near future for Windows users who are completely illiterate about compiling code from repositories? Also maybe screenshots to increase interest. :)

It will work on linux, I just need to clean up the makefile and some of the project configs.

There will be, but be warned, we might take it down at any moment. My partner wants to finish the game and polish it up, then release that version on greenlight or desura (with no source release).

Alberthrocks also made a NSIS installer from his compilation that you can use while I find time to upload the binary zip.

EDIT: Here is the zip file

Cool, thanks. I'll try it later. And I understand if it's not finished. For completed projects, an executable is a must to get a significant audience.

Here are some screenies:

Game start!

When both you and the minotaur are in the sight of the torches, the plunger appears.

Avoid the minotaur-ditto-minotaur, or it's game over.
Well, I'm bach here too!

Looks awesome :). I will try it later if I have time... stupid school <_<

DJ Omnimaga

Ooh I like how it looks like so far. It seems very maze-like. :)

Except Linux, where it's more commonplace to let the user build the executable themselves if it's not packaged in an installable package (like deb or rpm). A makefile is a must, though. :P

Looks awesome! Are you going to add more special effects too?

Indeed. I was saying mostly because most people use Windows (at least for now).
