rougishby kraln - Compo Entry
A throwback rogue-alike that runs in a browser.
You're a teenager in a small village in rural England at the dawn of the 15th century. The village elders have been preparing you since birth for the screening ritual. This past week, you've successfully passed the written screen, the oral screen, and the heritage screen. There's just one screen left: the game screen.
In the middle of the night, the elders took you from your house and threw you down into the dank catacombs underlying the village. The eldest, a man wizened and frail, peers down into the darkness and begins to give you some last advice. Find the flashlight, find the ladder. Avoid Grumpus.
The entire game depends on this last, one, screen.
Can you survive and emerge victorious? Good luck!
Greetings to my lovely wife Joelle, my cat, Mu, and obskyr & khahem from IRC for helping me with some last-minute testing.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.
NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
