Infection is a coffeebreak roguelike


Infection is a Seven Day Roguelike written for the 7DRL Challange 2013. The game is about a pathogen trying to infect a living organism and fighting its immune system, antibiotic shots and... experimental medical nanomachines.

Game features

  • Tile-??based dun­geon gen­er­a­tion: every level has a dif­fer­ent look-??and-??feel and the struc­ture is different
  • Trait based advance­ments based on phago­cyt­ing ene­mies and using their parts to buy skills
  • Dif­fer­ent game­play ele­ments, albeit very sim­ple in their exe­cu­tion: auras, ranged attacks, sum­mon­ing, dif­fer­ent mov­ing pat­terns for enemies
  • Data-driven design allows to:
    • Customize levels, adding removing or changing their generation pattern and monster population
    • Edit the monsters' stats and traits
    • Edit the starting stats and traits of the player

Versions and platforms

Infection is written in D and utilizes the Derelict 3 libtcod bindings. The source code and libraries are cross-platform but the only official build is for Windows.
