four things to do preparing for 7DRL

Ok so just in case anyone is interested in preparing for this years 7DRL,  here’s my top 4 things to do in preparation:

1. Listen to most of these if you can

2. Look at what F/W’s u can use. This is important as you will learn soon that building ontop of F/W’s saves you so much time.

3, Come up some ideas -because you may well change your mind when you start

4. Just check out the fundamentals (dev environment, frameworks and deployment). You should make sure you can build,deploy a dummy project using whatever frameworks you need. DO THIS BEFORE THE COMP BEGINS

5.Do some planning for the week (It goes quickly)


7DRL – March 8th 2014

From a post by Jeff Lait – here is the information on this years 7DRL

1) Any time on March 8th or March 16th (as measured in your time 
zone), register on 
2) Write a roguelike. 
3) After 168 hours, if you have completed a playable roguelike, add your 
download link to!  If not, set your status 
to failed and we will all commiserate and agree that given a few 
scant more hours, it could have been great.
