A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

This is a project from my freshman year in high school. I worked on this in my free time and recently dug it back up. I don't remember all the controls but the important ones are

  • WASD or Arrow Keys to move
  • X & Z to save and load
  • 1 2 3 are listed on the side
  • C to open character stat menu
  • Walk into something to attack
  • Use enter in menus to select it
  • Probably some other stuff

I decided to upload this because I don't want it just sitting on my desktop i will not be continuing development. I do have older versions available if somebody wants to see the whole process.

This was a learning project and I just threw in anything I felt like experimenting with. If you open the .jar with something like winrar you should be able to edit the xml and change around items.

The project was made using Squidlib for graphics that can be found here

I will most likely start up a similar project in the future with some actual planning prior so look out world!

Install instructions

It is a runnable jar file, just download and go wild.
NOTE: it does create files so maybe put it in its own folder.

This was a pretty cool playthrough. Gives off the aesthetic of exploring a dungeon and trying to pick your way through, hoping you don't run into any enemies when your HP is low.

The looting aspect is really fun too. You've managed to capture the heart of roguelikes, my dude!
