This is my first Ludum Dare, and I didn’t want to stretch myself, so I have gone with a roguelike genre. This means I don’t have to worry about framerate, or even graphics. I used libtcod, which bar the lack of documentation so far seems like a good middleware.

In my game you are escaping from a blazing office building. Each floor is procedurally generated, and the objective is to get to the exit before you’re overwhelmed by the flames. You have various tools to help you, including water bombs and the ability to shut fire doors. In the screenshot you can see I have just manually activated the sprinkler system.

It’s really difficult to extinguish the flames completely, so your best choice is control. Can you stand the heat?
