Vicious Orcs is a coffeebreak roguelike


Vicious Orcs is a Seven Day Roguelike written for the Seventh Annual Seven Day Roguelike Challenge. Coding on this game ceased 168 hours after it started.

Your remote mountain village is snowed in awaiting the pass to clear when an earthquake strikes, revealing a new cave complex. It so happens that tales in the village have told of such a cave complex many generations ago. That time vicious orcs stormed out and attacked the defenseless villagers. This time, you are here.

Since the rest of the villagers are too fearful or too doubtful to make a foray into the caverns, it is up to you to explore their depths and rid the village of this threat.

Vicious Orcs is a game in the Angband style. Except much shorter. Much like Quickband quickened.
