So, I didn't have time to polish my game (Spellforger 1: Entry Exam) as much as I'd like during the challenge - which I understand is normal. :-) I am planning on circling back and giving it some more love and care before I let it go, and I'm wondering how much of that is appropriate before the reviewers get to it? From what I've gleaned from listening to Roguelike Radio (which is awesome, by the way), it sounds like bugfixes and a help screen with the commands are legitimate post-7drl additions, but new features/mechanics are not.
To be a little more concrete, here's the stuff I'm considering:
- Bugfixes (already pushed one out)
- Help screen with game commands
- Player/creature names showing up in the game messages, instead of the current ORC3 and FIREELEMENTAL13 ID tags
- Performance improvements
- A background image on the initial text screen
- A score system
- Spell hotkeys
I want to be sure I'm complying with the spirit of the challenge, can you give me some guidance as to if these things would be overstepping?
