Night fever, night feveeeeer… We know how-to-dooo it!

Imagine you’re a dwarf, and you’re in desperate need for your daily beer. Now imagine the only place miles around where you can get your fix is a strange tavern where elves dance to even stranger music. Imagine the only way to get that sweet sweet beer is to go past those disgusting drunk elves, to avoid the orc bouncers and find your way to the VIP Room.

Do you know what happens next? Mayhem!

Gameplay

The One Room Club is a blend of card & rhythm game, where your  dwarves will have to progress through a tavern dancefloor to reach the VIP room. Day after day, security will be made tougher to prevent you from reaching your goal. Use your wits and fight your way through the place, to get the well-deserved reward :)

Progress

This first day went by quite smoothly, with the core gameplay code mostly working. Things are still pretty ugly and rough on the edges, but hopefully we should be able to run a level from start to end before we sleep. On the art side we already have a good part of the character design done, and a pretty good idea of the direction we want to take! Since the core gameplay is not too complicated, we plan to spend more time than usual polishing the experience and making things fun!
