In approximately 10 minutes it will be Sunday, 2pm CET and i will start working on my 7DRL for this year, namely MechRL. It will be a roguelike inspired by MechWarrior, more informations can be found on my dev blog http://http://kmees.github.com/ I will also stream while coding on twitch.tv (http://www.twitch.tv/kmees).

Good luck to all that participate

What a coincidence, I was going to do BattletechRL for this year's
7DRL, but then decided to postpone that idea since it could only be
faithfully done with hexes, and I don't have a hex engine ready.
Instead I'll be doing a Battletech-inspired robot RL, starting, um,
now. Guess I'd better go make my own announcement thread...

Did you have success with your RL? I failed kinda miserably, but maybe we should team up next year. The world needs a MechWarrior RL :P

I managed to do more or less what I intended, and it's both playable and winnable, so it qualifies as a success. You're right, the world does need a MW RL. I'd love to take up the challenge next year, but I might be unavailable for the entire year :( I suppose I'll just store away all BattletechRL notes I made a month or so ago and perhaps one day dust them off to actually make an attempt...

Yeah, I tried it a long time ago, and didn't find it very fun. I also would want to set the game in the actual Battletech universe, with all the same tech, mechs, background stories, and PnP gameplay/rules (I had a lot of fun with the original game as a kid)--in other words, a faithful BattletechRL.

Yeah likewise. I think Jo was scared of a legal battle with Battletech guys, a 7drl should not really bother the legal department though. I would definitely give BattletechRL a go.
