Theme interpretation
The Volcano Game is an adventure game in a randomly generated graph-based world, meant to have the feeling of ADVENT, the decision-based turns and 1-life-only aspect of ROGUE, and the interface of a modern-ish web page. It's free from linear movement. You may have an automatically updating map: but you still don't have any sense of direction. Hybrid of genre, interface, and graph-based world.

Is there a healing system, otherwise the game is kinda unfair. Even thought it's part of the gameplay idea that the map is rotation is super confusing, but I like the visual feedback with dragging the map around.

I think with a healing system, getting better gear and audio the game could be really good.

thanks for the feedback 😀

You can thank vis.js for the draggable graphs,

And you can blame my mis-use of vis.js for the confusing map rotation. Lol

Healing, gear, and music are good ideas, thank you !
