Echo Down

A roguelike townbuilder where you build your settlement upon the ruins other players'.

Echo Down was built for the 2021 7 Day Roguelike Challenge. The game's core premise is that while you as a player are building your town by collecting resources from the dungeons beneath it, your town is being used as the template for different layers of the dungeon ruins beneath the towns of other players, and in turn, their towns are being used to generate the ruins beneath yours. I developed it with Keith Evans and Clover Greenhalgh.

Given the online nature of the game, its ambitious design, and the 7 day development time, Echo Down is currently in a pretty rough state with a lot of bugs and downtime, but I hope to return to it in future to polish it into a neat small play experience that explores a novel mechanic.

You can find Echo Down on itch.
