ArenaRL is a tactical sci-fi game that pitches the player in a deathmatch against several AI opponents in randomised arenas. As such, it will be a highscore-based... coffeebreak... roguelike-ish.. thing...
The obvious inspiration is Quake 3 Arena by id Software, and several ideas from Q3A, plus some fresh new ones, are adapted into a roguelike interface:
- character advancement
- orientation of movement
- non-cheating AI
ArenaRL is also an incubator for a roguelike engine that hopefully can eventually be used by a future sci-fi based exploration (proper) roguelike.
