This game is a roguelite take on tactics RPGs such as Final Fantasy Tactics.

It was developed in a week for the 7DRL game jam.

If you have trouble playing on itch, try playing here instead.

ATTN 7DRL judges: this is an updated version, the original 7DRL submission is available here.

How to Play

You start with a randomly generated team of 4 adventurers.
Be careful, once a unit dies it's gone forever.
Can you make it through the gauntlet of battles and win the game?

Controls

The bottom of the screen will tell you what controls you can use.
Each unit can both move and attack once per turn.
Doing nothing, or only moving or attacking will make your next turn come faster.

  • Press m to move, then use the arrow keys or click.
  • Press r to undo movement if you haven't attacked yet.
  • Press a to attack, then use the arrow keys or click.
  • Press c to cast spells if you have any.
  • Press q or ; to 'query' aka farlook, to get info on units, arrow keys or mouse to look around.
  • Press t or tab to get a summary of your team, press tab to look at the enemy team. ESC to exit.
  • Press n to end your turn.

After you win a battle, you can choose a bonus for one unit. To choose, press a, b, c, or d then enter.

Spoilers

Here is some info about spells and items. Don't read it if you want to figure it out yourself.

Development Info

This game was developed during 7DRL 2020 using Go and WebAssembly. The windowing system and basic tile system was re-used from another game. All the gameplay, monsters, and items, and maps (except one) were created during 7DRL.

Originally I wanted to make the game more 'roguelike', but due to time constraints it ended up being more of a 'roguelite' with perk-based progression and static maps. However, I think it ended up being a decently fun game. I plan to continue working on an improved version in the future. Thanks for playing!

Pretty cool game! Reminds me of my own a bit, but with a different focus. The UNIX process tree-like action log is awesome ;)

I thought I was doing great, until I got savaged by 4 dragons :(

Actually I realized that was the last level... I was lucky enough to only fight one dragon, and won:

Thank you for playing and congratulations on winning :)
