I'm pleased to announce the fourth annual 7 Hour Roguelike (7HRL) competition, modeled on the 7DRL competition but in the spirit of the 1DRL: "Use whatever you like (existing engines, libs, code, graphics, sounds), just make the game."
We will be starting at 1pm EST on Sunday, Jan 28th, 2018 at Clarkson University in SC334 and continuing until 8pm, at which point we will eat pizza, and then demo what wemade. All are encouraged to come for the pizza and demos, especially non-participants. Remote participation is encouraged!
The theme this year is Magnetism.
Create a functional Roguelike in 7 hours. Even if severely limited in scope, the end result should be playable and recognizable as a Roguelike.
The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119.
The 7DRL challenge is considered one of the more difficult kinds of game jam, due to the scope and complexity of even the simplest Roguelikes. The 1DRL is widely considered to be a disaster. But quoting Han Solo, "Never tell me the odds." And misquoting C-3P0, the odds of getting a fun, complete Roguelike out of this are "approximately three thousand, seven hundred twenty to one." This should be fun and I promise you'll learn something. But don't expect to end with a polished, production-quality game.
No haiku for you. I am sitting in COSI. Don't make me do this.
