A classic Roguelike where you play as a rogue looting treasure from a dragon's lair under a volcano. You've picked a time when the Dragon is out terrorizing the local village. Unfortunately, you didn't anticipate Dragonlings. But you're greedy and anxious, and continue anyway.

Made in 7 days for the 2022 7DRL jam.

Goal

Collect as much treasure as you can, and make it out alive.

Controls

  • WASD or Arrows move a direction
  • Space or Period wait in place
  • Mouse hover to describe lit objects
  • 1-5 Use an artifact

Gameplay

  • Manage health and anxiety in a dynamic environment
  • Restore anxiety by picking up gold
  • Move into things to interact
  • Wait to have enemies come to you, but this increases your anxiety
  • Avoid hazards such as fire, lava, pitfalls, chasms, and more
  • Experiment with using artifacts on different objects, each does something differently, and some have a passive effect
  • Make it through 3 chambers before reaching the exit

Challenges

  • Escape with 100% of the gold collected
  • Escape with 0% of the gold collected (I believe this is possible)
  • Escape without artifacts

Good luck!  Here be dragon(ling)s.  Hopefully nothing else...

There will be bugs.

An absolute blast. So much fun and anxiety!

I was looking forward to your entry and I was not disappointed.

Fantastic in every way.

I have to specifically mention that I love the way the visibility works, and the artifact variety.

This is a tough game but the colors and tileset just make me want to stay in this world and keep trying.

This is great! Beautiful and fun.

…edit:

Came back to this one. Probably my favorite so far. Really well done here.

So beautiful! Very good work on map generation. I first though I HAD to find all gold. But no. It is actually hard to just reach the exit ^^. I’m not quite sure how to cross that lava river. I need to bring those red things one by one?

Making any game in a week is impressive, but this is even better.

I was sold on this game the first time I slipped on some mud. Juking a Dragonling by going around a lava pool then realizing my folly was another highlight. No wonder my Rogue has anxiety!

very good
