Save Scummer is a coffeebreak roguelike


Save Scummer is a Seven Day Roguelike written by Jeff Lait.

It is a unique twist on roguelikes where you do not control the character directly. Instead, all you do is save/restore or perform undos, (both types of save scumming) in an attempt to reach victory.

Unique/rare features

  • Intelligent "Do What I Mean" commands that reduce all possible actions to a single keystroke.
  • Infinite undo to correct mistakes in pressing said single keystroke.
  • Fight the fifty-two monsters from Letter Hunt and one new bonus monster.
  • 1980 different weapons and 216 different spells!
  • Play one of 8 races or 9 classes!

Versions and platforms

Save Scummer is written in C++ and is available for Windows, Linux, and can likely be compiled for the Mac OSX. Source code is provided so it may be ported to any platform with curses and/or SDL.
