Hi everyone!  As of 5:00 PM EST I'll be starting work on my first 7DRL ever!  My entry is called Spellforged 1: Entry Exam, and the idea is that you will find and combine runes to forge spells and pass the entry exam to an exclusive mage academy.  I've never completed a game before, so I'm hoping that I'll be able to do well.  :-)

For full disclosure, I will be basing this project on my roguelike/roguelike engine that I've been tinkering with since 2012 without ever getting far enough to be considered more than a tech demo.  The source code is on BitBucket at under the name of the engine: "Caves of the Dragon Age".  I'll be continuing to update this repository as I continue development, and figure out how/if I want to split it out into a separate repository after the week is over.

More to come, so watch the devlog on the game page (!

I like it!

I will note that the above screenshot is a hand-crafted, non-procedural test map.  I probably won't be able to make something like that in the next 6 days.

Don't worry about trying to proc-gen, instead work on the interesting parts of your game! Good luck!

Posted the first version with working spells on the game page at!  I am so excited that it is actually working!  If you have time to try a work in progress, go check it out.  The controls are in the various devblog posts, specifically days 3 and 4 so far.

I did it!  The game is done!
