After participating in six Ludum Dare jams I wanted to try something else, so I subscribed for the itch.io Jam Digest newsletter. When I received the last newsletter telling me that the 7DRL was starting in 14 hours I decided to accept the challenge and decided to join! It is nice to have different rules and a different timeframe to keep things fresh, so lets see what comes out after 7 days.
I wanted my game to have an unconventional theme for a Roguelike, so I pressed the "Show random page" button on wikipedia until something workable came up that wasn't fantasy or sci-fi. After a lot of clicks an article about Mongolian Nomads came up, so I decided to go with that. I've created a moodboard to set the tone for the graphics/story, and now the creating begins!
Good luck everyone!
