This sounds amazing. I hope it makes it to some kind of “semi-finished”.
A semi-roguelike game inspired by Jorge Borges, Umberto Eco, Neal Stephenson, Shadow of the Colossus, Europa Universalis and Civilization. Although currently in its early stages, URR aims to explore several philosophical and sociological issues that both arose during the sixteenth and seventeenth century (when the game is approximately set), and in the present day, whilst almost being a deep, complex and highly challenging roguelike. To do this the game seeks to generate realistic world histories, though ones containing a few unusual happenings and anomalous experiences. The traditional roguelike staple of combat will be rare and deadly – whilst these mechanics will be modeled in detail, exploration, trade and diplomacy factors will have just as much effort put into them.
