The next game I wanted to try is Scoundrel by Zach Gage and Kurt Bieg, a roguelike with an interesting weapon-binding mechanic that has inspired quite a few card games.

This game is mechanically simpler than the other games and I whipped up a prototype in a very short time. This game was so straightforward to code I originally though it would be fun to go a little extra on the icons and have a different weapon and monster for each card value, but I ended up going with a very minimalist style and color scheme that I think reflects the simple elegance of the design. I’m very pleased with how it turned out. Notes are short because this was an easy one, I don’t think I had to chase a single bug.
