- Continuous World (no loading between levels/dungeons)
- Fog-of-war (line-of-sight is blocked from areas the player cannot see)
- Random Dungeon Generation (allowing infinite exploration)
- Persistent State World (players mark is left on the world)
Looking toward the future (possible Steam Greenlight and/or Kickstarter) I’ve begun considering various options for themes and licensing as well. This could be Dungeons & Dragons (thinking new 5e opportunities), Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, or similar. If you’re a license holder and see potential, please contact me.
In other news: I recently read an article title Three Dungeons & Dragons Video Games That Need To Be Made. It is a good list, but I think the one that is missing for me is a random dungeon crawler that actually feels like you’re exploring an old grid-based dungeon.
