Started today at noon EDT (GMT - 5).
This is my first roguelike, and first game period. I am using C#, libtcod, and VisualStudio2008. Probably going to be windows only, tried getting the C# version of libtcod working with monodevelop on osx and had no luck.
I don't have much of plan or theme. I am just trying to get a basic roguelike game together. I will consider it a success if I just have something playable by the end of the week.
Made good progress on my first day, spent about 6 hours total. Got the screen setup, map displayed (no FOV), HUD, player moving around, a single monster class, hp, xp, and simple combat.
