No luck this year. The reason for failure was definitely my indecisiveness. I just couldn't settle on the game mechanics; how much I should borrow from Mass Effect 3 or should I stay in-universe and try to stay faithful to the source material as much as possible.

This year I will attempt to make a sci-fi themed seven day roguelike. It will be heavily inspired by Mass Effect 3's multiplayer, which I've been playing the past year. The civilizations of the galaxy will call the game... Rogue Effect. (dun dun dunnn)

Since my 7DRL this year will be a sci-fi shooter (if I succeed that is), I thought it might be useful to scout out some ideas from existing shooter roguelikes. DoomRL I have already played, so I picked the next best thing; AliensRL. Which is made by the same guy, btw -- Kornel Kisielewicz.

I thought I should get back to playing those roguelikes. And what would be a better game to start with than the one that has won the Ascii Dreams Roguelike of the Year title three times in a row and is now finally out of beta.

I've tried a handful of roguelikes over the summer but with each of them I very rapidly got a feeling of not wanting to play them, and just quit. And writing about a game one haven't even played for half an hour is dumb in my opinion. So I guess fun and games are on hiatus till I stumble upon a roguelike that actually makes me want to play it.
