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.

Candy Box - Play Idle Game
RPGCandybox is one of the earliest examples of incremental games, and is arguably one of the most popular. It starts out with a simple interface, counting up candies and allowing the player to eat them, and quickly expands into a well designed and complex game with a wide range of elements.CandyCandy is the main resource of the game and starts out by gathering automatically at a rate of 1 per second. The player initially has the option of eating the candy, but is soon offered to throw the candy on the ground. Eventually, the player is required to use the candy in a wide range of situations, and it is generally considered the currency of the game. Once enough candy has been collected, more gameplay options are made available.QuestingOnce the sword has been purchased, the player can choose to go on "an epic quest" to collect resources. The quest screen consists of a drop down box that allows the player to select the location in which they would like to quest. Once a location has been selected, the player and location appear on screen in ASCII format and the player's symbol moves to the right, fighting any enemies that are in the way. If the player safely reaches the other side, they are rewarded with whatever they have collected along the way.External LinksWiki
