"Forest Explorer" is a very simple roguelike/roguelite prepared during the 7-day Roguelike Jam 2021. In this game you are exploring forests and fighting monsters. Levels are randomly generated. To get to the next level you have to find a river with a boat.


The player is controller by W/A/S/D or arrow keys.

The game is available for Linux/Windows and MacOS, as well as playable in a browser.


The game was made with Godot game engine. Programming by Kirill Diduk. The assets are mostly based on 1-bit pack from KenneyNL with some changes.

Is there any ending?

No, not yet. Now the levels just grow and amount of enemies increase.

The sprites and the color palette are great. Interesting take on the player going to the next floor / level.

Thank you! The sprites are from 1-bit pack from KenneyNL, but I colorized some of them with ENDESGA palette. The idea of using boat to go to the next level came into my mind during 7DRL Challenge 🙂

Nice! 😎

The graphics and the colour pallete is really nice. The controls are simple and solid.  I like the fog of war and the skeleton AI is well done.

Without the instructions it wasnt clear to me what reaching the other boat did, so would be good to signal that in the game somehow.  Also for some colourblind people that red apple on the green grass is almost invisible so something to think about perhaps.  In terms of balance its very easy to loose health and hard to recover.

Hope that doesnt come off as too critical, its a very nice submission, just trying to give some feedback :)

Thank you for your feedback! I'm going to continue working on this game after the 7DRL Challenge, so your feedback is important for me.

Yep, this confused me also, thought I was restarting the game.
