Does anybody have experience with SquidLib or SquidPony (same thing). It’s a roguelike game library. I’ve been messing around with it a little. It seems promising for what I want to do which is, well, build a roguelike text game.

If anybody has done anything with it I would like to see. I’m not all that good with java. Just started a week or so ago.

I started an IRC channel on irc.freenode.net called #SquidLib if anyone wants to join.

edit: right now I really just want to have playable window and an @ to move around the screen.

Off topic, but what does Roguelike mean?


I don’t have any experience with this library…I mentioned it because I know that it’s actively developed. You’ve seen there are a number of examples in src/test/java/squidpony/examples
