rooMaze is a first person hardcore roguelike with voxel graphics and procedurally generated levels! All of this is powered by Unreal Engine 4. Don’t let acute-angled cubes deceive you as behind a simple visual style lies the all-consuming hardcore.
– Random generation of levels, rooms, objects and everything else.
– Voxel graphics and the dark dungeon atmosphere.
– Several branches of character «leveling up».
– Unique combat system.
– Crossbows in each hand – cool!
– A lot of enemies and items.
– Deadly traps – watch your steps!
– Character damage systems: burns, bleedings, fractures – you’re in trouble!
– Many hidden secrets.
– Barter system – in a dark damp dungeon nobody needs your shiny coins.
Though this is our first project and there were only two developers on a team, we did our best to create something special by mixing a good old blend of RPG and Action and adding up some peculiarities:
An unexpectedly dark and oppressive atmosphere, where light becomes a useful resource just like mana and health.
A randomly generated dungeon, where caves are not just cells full of enemies – we tried our best to make all of them meaningful. We managed to get around our least favorite senseless narrow halls which are quite frequent in other video games with randomly generated levels. And we worked hard so the layout of caves doesn’t look like a playing field for oughts and crosses. It also goes without saying that caves contain randomly generated visual and practical content like enemies, traps etc.
Traps: lots of “pleasant” surprises are waiting for you in the dark ready to be activated by trip wires or floor press plates. Classical flying darts, whirling axes and maces, rooms rapidly filled with gas. A trap may cause painful holes in your body and there’s almost no chance your bones remain safe and sound.
rooMaze is an indie game; over a period of two years of its development we have only had teabags in our budget. Our experience was insufficient so at some moments we tried too hard in vain or we had to painfully give it up. However, we created that very game we ourselves can play with pleasure.
If you’re fond of exploring mysterious dark and full of secrets locations, adapting to unfriendly environment and overcoming any kind of difficulties then you may like this game!
And remember: “Mushrooms are close!”
