Might still make it!

I think I know how I’m going to do this now. Here’s a screenshot:

Yes, that’s right! It’s a typing/console game! I think it might turn out ok at least. My biggest concern right now: How do you tutorial this kind of game? I want the tutorial to be integrated into the game, but I don’t have a lot of time, I still have the basic game mechanics¬†to implement.

Worst case scenario¬†there will be a Wall-Of-Text tutorial, but that’s no fun.

Maybe the tutorial should be very minimalist, and you have to figure things out by yourself? This can lead to some frustration with the player though, especially since most players don’t play a Ludum Dare game for more than maybe 10-15 minutes. Hmmm… I’ll have to think more about this later.
