Emergent behaviour
« on: February 22, 2020, 02:30:32 PM »
I'm toying with entering the 7drl
https://itch.io/jam/7drl-challenge-2020

I didn't do too well last time, so I thought about trying something a bit more traditional.
so I've tried to implement some rules
1 - rats eat food
2 - spiders bite rats: killing them
3 - spiders eat flys
4 - if there is no food - rats bite you

Just testing:
  • found 2 rats
  • found a spider - it killed 1 of the rats
  • the other rat then ate the dead rat  :o
  • the spider bit the other rat and killed it
  • I've only got a spider now!  8)

Well, it made me giggle  ;D

Yay spiders...

Next up is this case:
1 - found a spider (you know where this is going?)
2 - found a rat
3 - spider bites rat, rat dies
4 - found another rat
5 - spider bites rat, rat dies
6 - found some corn
7 - 2 dead rats transforms us into a dead rat - 1 OF US!

You have found a purple potion.
Will you give it to some flys and see what happens?

First peek at "1 Of Us"


Hex grid based with FOV.

You are now "KingRat" with a health of 1
and a bandit has joined the party

bandit? Could be Zombie-Link :D




Somehow these left and right dside looks as if it contains 2 pixels too much - compared to the border top/bottom of a single tile.


PS: Always love how few pixels are needed for treasure chests.

I thought i'd try a bit of story telling through some parallax scrolling:


I liked the idea of a movie/film, possible I might even add an old filter to give scratches and bleach the image a bit too?

I will rake you through the UI, what everything is and how it works. should be nice :)
