Gognio Dungeon (Soon)


#1

@VirtualClint and I have been asking eachother a question repeated basically infinitely the last few days?
it sort of goes like this

GRIM GLAMFIRE: hey, what if there was a random dungeon game?
VirtualClint: yeah like a dungeon but random?
GRIM GLAMFIRE: yeah like some sort of…random dungeon
VirtualClint: yeah. like a dungeon that’s randomly made.

we decided to bring to you the fruits of our Labor (coming soon)

what if you were this man:

and before you was a dungeon. not just any dungeon: a random dungeon. A dungeon holding the Gognio

VirtualClint and I want to bring you that sort of dungeon, a dungeon that could be played on a PC.

here is where we will talk about development:

true random dungeon generation:

completely impassable

enemies that can be killed by the player. skeletons!

excited? what if we told you this game had a system that @VirtualClint and I are calling
"Persistent Living Syndrome"

just like real life, any decision you make lasts forever and cannot be changed.
did you press “q” to 'q’uaff a potion you 'u’sed in your 'i’nventory? it’s gone but only forever.

WARNING: DYING IS ALSO A DECISION

now finally I know what you’re thinking
so here is a glimpse of a possible future:

(soon) is an overstatement of the speed at which i am learning how to make a roguelike in game maker

(eventually) is also an overstatement but more accurate


#3

I am excited you guys are making videogames.

When will we get playables?


#4

Make sure you include an enemies-off,-pleasant-maze mode : )

How are you pronouncing gognio? Gog-nio or gonyio?


#5

Pronounce it how your soul tells you to.

It can also be pronounced Gluchgawn (glooch-gone)


#6

well right now it’s playable, if you ignore the fact that you get stuck in a single room and skeletons are one hit kills and there is nothing else going on.

so uh, maybe in like 3 weeks?


#7

look at these graphics grim made

breaking out of that tile mindset


#8

Here’s a tip for when you play this game:

LARGER monsters are STRONGER!

#9

there’s never been a game like the one we’re making before
we were thinking "what if…the dungeons you play through on a table-top also existed inside your personal computer? (or apple Macintosh)"
it seems crazy i know but clint and i are committed to this
We really want to capture that feeling of being under the shoe of a merciful, but still ultimately mysterious, Game Master (or as they call them in Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, a Dungeon Master)


#11

We’ve been sitting around the DM table for weeks now asking ourselves this question, and as a matter of fact: it’s taken over our very being. Clint and I can’t even get out of bed without asking eachother:

“Could there be a super rare possible chance of encountering another adventurer!!! Possibly friendly or possibly not!!”

As much as I would like to defer to @VirtualClint and I mean I still will, what if, instead, the opportunity was running into the worst possible version of yourself?

Dark!


#12

Shadow Link is definitely making an appearance, except we don’t have the license so it will be Shmadow Blink


#14


#15

The art in this is way dope


#18

but also:

in character!


#19

Will there be a way for I, the player, to engage in “WIZ BIZ”?


#20

Maybe! Maybe you’re the progenitor! and these guys are just lousy thieves


#21

ATTN:
