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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Clickpocalypse 2 - Play Idle Game
Clicker, Idler, RPGThe sequel to the ever popular Clickpocalypse, this game deviates from the simple design of its predecessor and expands into an automated graphical world.It should be noted that the game is still in development, and some features have either not been implemented or have not yet been announced.The WorldThe gameplay region is made up of a tiled display where the player's characters can freely roam, searching for more enemies to kill.AdventurersThe player is given a number of adventurers that will gather loot and experience automatically. They initially start the game with a fighter, a priest, a ranger, and a wizard, each with their own abilities and loot.The adventurers wander the world killing monsters and navigating dungeons automatically. It is up to the player to decide when and how to spend experience, upgrade an adventurer's equipment, and more.As adventurers gather experience, it can be spent on levelling up the adventurer. This opens up the abilities of that particular character, providing a new layer of strategy in the game.MonstersSimilar to the previous game, monsters populate the world and are a way for the player to gain better loot as well as experience. However, in this game, the monsters can wander through the map, attacking the player's characters as they like. This can lead to the player's characters running away, and removing them from battle.Monsters can now be upgraded to increase the chances of dropping rare items, more gold, more experience, and so on.LootItems that monsters dropped can be applied to characters to improve their abilities. These items are randomly generated and randomly dropped, meaning that many of the items may in fact be worse than the item currently being used. This is circumvented by providing the option of an auto-upgrade button that will automatically select the best items available and apply them to the character.Each character has a specific set of items unique to them. Each item in turn can only be applied to a single adventurer, meaning an item that might be good for one character, cannot be used by another.
