Every year, there’s a challenge to make a fully-functioning, playable roguelike game in seven days. For more information about this year’s Seven-Day Roguelike (7DRL) Challenge, you can check out “7DRL Contest 2012” at RogueBasin.
And check out the community blog, too!
The 7DRL Contest isn’t organisationally related to Ludum Dare in any way, but I thought you folks might be interested. 😉
