7DRL already???

I'd completely forgotten about this until I was poking around on Reddit this morning and tripped over a notification about it. I've been wanting to try this for a long time. Perhaps I can find the time to do it this year.

I wonder if I have enough time to figure out how to use the TE4 engine for this...

Welcome to #7DRL!

T-Engine 4 is amazingly easy and intuitive to learn, if you know how to script in basically any language. It's possible to extract the entirety of ToME's game file into its constituent Lua files, and you can look at those for inspiration and learning about how the engine works. Good luck, and DarkGodspeed.
