A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

Goldbox 64 is a project developed for the #LOWREZJAM 2018
It's written in Python (3.6.6) using PyGame (1.9.4)

It was intended to be a rough recreation of old SSI "Goldbox" Dungeons and Dragons RPGs from the later 1980s.

Sadly, I did not have the time to get a game working. I do have a (technically) working map editor with load and save behaviors. There is no in-game help system.

Main Menu controls are...

  • w - Move up an option
  • s - Move down an option
  • enter/return - Select highlighted option
  • escape - Quit program

Editor controls are as follows...

  • w - Move Forward
  • s - Move Backward
  • d - Turn Right
  • a - Turn Left
  • q - Previous Wall
  • e - Next Wall
  • spacebar - Place wall
  • o - Save map
  • l - Load map
  • esc - Quit to main menu or Cancel save/load
  • enter - (when saving/loading) Save/Load entered filename

When saving/loading, nothing will appear to happen, however as you enter text on the keyboard it will appear at the top of the screen. Once a name has been entered, pressing enter will attempt to load or save a map of the given name.

Goldbox64 is open source and the source can be cloned or viewed Here (Github)

Thank you for looking at my project!
