Explore a mysterious and exciting dungeon filled with exciting mysteries without ever leaving the same room!

Why would you change rooms when clearly this one has all the danger and excitement and danger that one could possibly need?!

Come to the One Room Dungeon and live the rest of your newly mysterious-and-exciting life there!!!

One Room Dungeon is my entry to Ludum Dare #37, of which the theme was 'One Room'!

It's definitely my most ambitious LD entry so far and I'm very happy with it too! Sadly I had to rush the audio a bit towards the end because time was going faster somehow.

The game is also on Itch.io and of course there's the Ludum Dare submission!

Feedback is most welcome, especially on the Ludum Dare page!


Edit: If you are interested, I wrote a post-mortem about this game and the making of this game!

Thank you to everyone who played the game and thank you again if you leaved some feedback! :)

This is so good. I love the character's panicked arm-flailing run.

P#33375 2016-12-11 22:29 ( Edited 2016-12-12 03:49)

This is the best variation of Tetris I've played yet! Good stuff.

P#33378 2016-12-11 23:59 ( Edited 2016-12-12 04:59)

Oh man, excellent game! Great job! 48 hours well spent! So far I've only made it to 1-1/3-3/4. I need to step it up. =)

P#33380 2016-12-12 00:16 ( Edited 2016-12-12 05:16)

Got to 2 - 0/3 - 2/4, whatever that means. REALLY COooOOOL!

P#33382 2016-12-12 00:33 ( Edited 2016-12-12 05:33)

Nice graphics, very interesting idea, very impressive for a LD entry !

P#33405 2016-12-12 12:16 ( Edited 2016-12-12 17:16)

very good game! and addictive!
though I'm bothered by the lower row of tiles. I think walls "à la zelda" would be perfect.

P#33412 2016-12-12 15:47 ( Edited 2016-12-12 20:47)

I really enjoyed this, although I agree that the bottom row is a little difficult to deal with. the last tile can sneak under there. It wasn't clear what the X+arrow key did initially either.

P#33438 2016-12-13 09:02 ( Edited 2016-12-13 14:02)

This is great! What I'm most impressed by is how solid the presentation is despite the 48h time limit, like the really clever and subtle tutorial that teaches you all you need to know in less than 10 seconds.

Got to 2-something, going to go back to it later to see if I can reach some sort of final level or something.
Edit: I think I "beat" the game, made it to loop 9 (and managed to accidentally hit X before I could take a screencap). Really fun.

P#33481 2016-12-14 08:02 ( Edited 2016-12-14 19:57)

I got to 3-0/3-3/4! Is that good?
Very cool game, very fun and interesting.

P#33503 2016-12-14 18:11 ( Edited 2016-12-14 23:11)

The game is great, but I have lots of slowdown after chain-chomp-like enemies begin to appear.

P#35044 2017-01-05 21:25 ( Edited 2017-01-06 02:25)

Great game TD! I managed a 26. I'm sure I can get a better score. I didn't get any slow down from the chain chomp enemies, although maybe that was pre-update.

P#35048 2017-01-05 23:08 ( Edited 2017-01-06 04:08)

Played the post-jam update a bit and while there are many good and useful changes, I do think you're going about the "post-game" progression system a bit wrong. By giving the player more HP on each successive loop you are making the game easier the longer you play, which bit-by-bit takes away any challenge that is left until the game becomes a question of "how long can I play before I get bored and quit?".

The way I play the game is that I know that I can afford two free hits as long as there is a health tile nearby, so rushing headfirst into large groups of enemies to step on a cluster of well-guarded tiles is usually a strategy that works. The more health I have, the more careless I can be, so you can see why the game becomes trivial to me with enough health.

Instead, I'd suggest making the game harder on successive loops instead to really force players to act skillfully. You could be doing things like taking away 1 point of health on every loop, or only making the health-restoring tiles spawn on every second (and every third, and every fourth and so on) floor, which would require players to stop being careless and start actually avoiding the enemies.

Other comments I have is that I really like the new enemy spawning mechanics that give you a fraction of a second to think instead of taking instant damage on floor shifts, and I also think the improved music suit the game well. There's still a bit of lag when multiple enemies are present on the same floor (especially chain chomps and the bomber imps) but it's easy to deal with.

thats awesome XD

P#35065 2017-01-06 08:49 ( Edited 2017-01-06 13:49)

To be honest I really didn't think anyone would get that far into the game... But since someone did, I just patched it and made the late game harder!

Have fun!

I just got to the last level, and as soon as I saw it I hollered for joy. It killed me, but it was awesome. Gonna beat it this time.

P#52584 2018-05-10 13:07 ( Edited 2018-05-10 17:07)

I really like it. I feel it is nicely designed :)

P#52591 2018-05-10 14:58 ( Edited 2018-05-10 18:58)

I got to 29.. this game is both silly and stressful :o

P#82949 2020-10-14 21:06

So from what i can tell, there is no way to kill the monsters. Am i correct?
Also, great game!

P#87427 2021-02-09 17:34

I would love to see this game expanded into a roguelike with bosses and items and an ending

P#111795 2022-05-13 15:24

A non-stop panic run until I finally scored 35 and gave up :) Great little game, though I do think it might be nice to give the player a breather every few levels as a small reward for successful runs.
