  • pyromancer

    A 2009 protoype game using libtcod.

    I've been messing around with the Pyromancer source code. I got it to run on modern systems and now I'm just fixing some last minute bugs I found with libtcod. I have access to 3 projects derived from Pyromancer's engine and I'm trying to learn more about how they work.

  • Nim

    Nim is a statically typed compiled systems programming language. It combines successful concepts from mature languages like Python, Ada and Modula. Its design focuses on efficiency, expressiveness, and elegance (in that order of priority).

    Many changes in the project organization this week. Looks like my experiment from the previous week works. Some time ago, I've decided to try to rewrite the game in the different programming language. This time I selected an even less popular language: Nim. The main issue is that I didn't want to completely drop the old code and start the work from scratch. Another problem to solve was to not stop developing the new things in the game. I think I solved both concerns. I replaced some old Ada code with the Nim version, plus added some new things to the game. It will take some time to rewrite the game completely, and it still will be in the playable state. The only victim of the change are the old unit tests. They will be replaced with the Nim ones, but I was forced to disable the old one for now.

  • 7drl-2019

    Game for the 7DRL 2019 challenge.

    It was my failed 2019 7DRL project where I tried to use that game as inspiration, but my experiments with game architecture ruined the code base pretty much immediately. I mostly got as far as making a spaceship generator. Repo Screenshots
