From Joe Larson’s review, at cymonsgames.com :
“Pyromancer is a visually gorgeous, frantic point-and-click real time roguelike shooter. [...] It’s fast, mindless, fun and easy. “

Introduction

This is my attempt for the 2009 7DRL contest (roguelike written in 7 days). It’s a prototype to test various experimental gameplay mechanisms that might be included in The Chronicles Of Doryen.

Included :

  • sub-cell resolution for dungeon generation, lighting and fov
  • monster spawning controlled by AI director (left4dead-like)
  • antialiased fov
  • diffuse lighting
  • FPS-like keyboard + mouse control
