Game Description

A Dark Room creates a roguelike experience within the incremental genre. It starts the game as a very simplistic interface, providing a single button to progress, but quickly integrates multiple resources, building construction, equipment, and more. It is available in both browser and iOS.

Resources
There are a wide range of resources that become available to the player as the game progresses. Notably, wood quickly becomes the most important, as it is required to keep the fire burning and to construct buildings. Other resources that come into player later on include meat for curing (which can then be used to keep the player fed during expeditions), leather, and steel.

Buildings
Huts are just the first building that become available, and will allow the player to receive population to help support the player's campsite. People that have moved into huts can be assigned jobs, from gathering wood to mining for coal. These jobs all produce resources, while some will also consume them. Raw meat, for example, will be consumed when producing cured meat.

Equipment
The player will be given the option of crafting equipment. There is a long list of items available to make, but they include weapons, armor, bags to carry more goods when on an expeditions, water reservoirs to carry more water, and more. These become vital to the progression of the player late game.
Alternatively, some items can be found while out on expeditions. Swords, guns, bullets, and more can be found from either felled enemies or hidden caches.

Expedition
Once the player has received a compass, they will be able to go out on an expedition. While out, the player must maintain enough food and water to ensure that they don't die. Water is consumed once ever step, while cured meat is consumed once every 4.
The player may randomly encounter enemies while outside the safety of the camp. As the player progresses further and further away, the enemies become stronger and faster, meaning that the player must ensure that they have enough skill to defend themselves. This will generally consist of arming themselves with better weapons (such as rifles).
Houses, caves, mines, and more can be found while out. If the player clears a location of enemies and reaches the end, they will generally be rewarded with a cache of items. This can include meat, but may also hold rarer items such as steel swords or grenades. Once the location has been cleared, it may be turned into a safehouse. Once a safehouse has been established, it will populate with a random amount of cured meat for the player to collect while out travelling. A safehouse can only be visited once per trip and will automatically replenish the player's water supplies.
Roads will be made from the safehouse back to the camp. While on roads, the player will not be attacked at all.

RPGA:TG (the proper abbreviation, of course) defies categorization into a single heading. There's an idle aspect as a baseline, of course, but there's also clicking (the button machine,) RPG aspects (the Battle Arena,) an Arcade mode, a collectable card game, and a number of other little features.The "anti" part comes into play with the bonuses you can get for actively playing certain features versus idling; active play in the Battle Arena lets you hit harder, actively harvesting the garden means you don't have to spend rare blue coins to do so, and actively fishing means you use your stamina more effectively.

Civ BuilderBuild your realm from a small Hamlet to a transcendental domain spanning the stars. The player is required to hire workers to gather resource and meet specific goals for each location.ExpandingOnce a location has been completed, a new location will be opened up, with new requiresments to complete it. Finally, once a location has enough of a particular size, it will expand into a larger type. Enough hamlets, for example, will become a village. Enough villages, and it will expand into a town. This pattern continues as the player progresses.It should be noted that once a village has been unlocked, a second village will appear beneath it, with a hamlet contained inside of it. The hamlets for this new village must be completed before the villages can then be combined into a town. This pattern continues.Resources and UpgradesThere are a number of resources available, limited to the type of location that the player is working in. These resources can only be gained from their associated location. They can be spent on upgrading a number of things, again associated with the appropriate location type. Upgrades can reward with free workers every X seconds, or even apply a modifier to a new location. These modifiers will generally change the cost or production of workers.External LinksRedditDevelopment Version
