The Seven Day Roguelike Challenge has been a reliable source of weird and wonderful experiments for years. This year’s event has now come to an end and while entries often receive extra polish or fixes after the deadline has elapsed, you can read about and download the games right now. I’ve only played a handful but will check back when the voting results are in. For now, I’ve picked out two games that represent the breadth of entries well. Creek Hero is a survival horror game that plays out like a handsome roguelike adaptation of Spore’s first stage, and NoirRL is a semi-scripted ascii detective adventure.
