The Smith's Hand is a coffeebreak roguelike


The Smith's Hand is a Seven Day Roguelike written for the Eighth Annual Seven Day Roguelike Challenge. Coding on this game ceased 168 hours after it started.

An earthquake has opened a mysterious cave in the mountains north of your village. Fortunately, this time all the villagers properly followed the elder's advice. Rather than risk life and limb searching it for the vicious orcs that may lie within, we all wisely left this task to professional adventurers.

As the village smith, it is your task to make sure these adventurers have the equipment they need to defeat whatever evil lies within the cave.

And no one will think it amiss if the village should grow richer in the process...

Unique/rare features

  • You aren't an adventurer, instead you are the village smith!
  • An economic simulator that will make you rethink the prices you pay in your next RPG.
