Post Wayward
http://www.unlok.ca/wayward/

HTML roguelike with crafting and some terrain manipulation. It's still in alpha (whatever the ♥♥♥♥ that means nowadays) and is I believe only a couple months old but is definitely playable and a lot of fun.

I really recommend you go in without knowing anything, as that's how you have the most fun, so I'll spoiler 'advanced' discussion.

Ended up starving to death after many failed attempts to fish. This is fun.

Started the game for the first time.

On a ♥♥♥♥ desert island. I have a ton of sandstone, and thanks to a single tree, I now have three trees though the power of magic. Also, ♥♥♥♥ night time.

EDIT : Yeah, ♥♥♥♥ night time. Way too many enemies to hold off with a spear, especially once there are for imps ready to smash you down for sport.

Well I survived a night by making a tree fortress, eating tree fungi and using fires as doors, but I didn't expect the zombies to stay into the next morning, so when I needed to go out for stones a combination of them and wolves killed me good and proper.

What quality spears have you guys made? I've only ever accomplished a normal spear, IE the ones giving you 5(6?)+ extra attack.

Made an account just to say how ridiculously fun this game is, to thank Contrary for bringing it to my attention and to tell you all a tip, to survive the night make yourself a small island with at least 1 tile of deep water all around because enemies cannot swim. Also this was my latest attempt.

Glad you had fun; make sure to send some nice words to the developer.

Yeah that's what I did for the game I screenshot'd. I made several small sanctuaries around this resource heavy island and outfitted them with some trees and campfires. I also recommend stocking up on redundant spears and carrying an extra bedroll. Kind of a lame strategy though, I was hoping someone here could come up with something better. It's also feasible to abuse the pathing behaviour and trap enemies in mazes, but that's only slightly less lame and doesn't work half as well.

How did you make those black blocks btw? I've seen them before but they weren't minable afaik. Is it made from charcoal or something? The only use I could fine for that was to grind it into ash and mix it with some peat and something else to make fertilizer.

Black blocks are cobblestone tiles IIRC. Just combine lots of stones

Locked myself into a forest/mountain range. I think I juked all the enemies into getting stuck along the coast, so fish and fungi keep me alive. I've made fire, but I can't work out how to smelt my iron. I have iron, rocks, tree stuff, dirt and beach. And snow, but I need to carve the mountain with my fists first.

I'm a lucky ♥♥♥♥♥, seeing as I started on an island right next to a cobblestone hut and everything I needed nearby.

I made a little base and started camping out, all the while discovering... that nothing seemed to be able to discover me. It was then that I noticed this.








I'm still playing this character now, I'll post more if I have any other little stories of interest.

PS: Play this in the background while playing for maximum effectiveness.

Guys how do you survive the first night? I keep getting raped by the horrible creatures when I try to explore. :(

That is a excellent question.

How do you survive the night? I get blitzed by critters even when I am in a cobblestone house that is basically on fire.

I hid in the forest, and survived off the fungi.
