DOGUE

Controls

Commentary

Quick thing I banged out for #7DRL, sadly in the same week my own dog died. Guide the roguelike dog through the rooms and floors of this dungeon, which get ever more dangerous each floor. How far can you make it?

The main actors are:

Dogue: Move with arrow keys, in rogue-like fashion. Wait as long as you like between moves.

Skeletons: Creep up to you and damage you if you're next to them. Move into them to kill them.

Meat: Pick up to replenish moves. You only have so many before you die of exhaustion!

Hearts: Pick up to replenish lives. You need these for when skeletons attack!

It's that simple. Hope you enjoy!

I won't be mad if you mute the music, I spent about 10 minutes on it.

Install instructions

The game should work great in the browser whether downloaded or not! Download the ZIP and put both files in the same folder, then double-click on 'dogue.html'. It should open like a normal webpage.


If you have PICO-8 and want to check out the game's code/etc. or just play it in the 'real thing', download either dogue.p8 or dogue.p8.png to your pico-8/carts directory, then load from within the PICO-8 app with 'load dogue'.
