afield is a short, gentle roguelike about finding your way home.

Play as a young grasshopper stranded far from Bug City. Use your wits and your special bug powers to navigate fields, tall-grass, mud wallows, and perilous waters. Don't let the creeps get too close (unless you're feeling hungry)! Survive 30 short levels to reunite with your friends and family.

Features

-Simple, turn-based puzzles with the strategic movement and resource conservation of classic roguelikes.
-Juicy ability cards to keep creeps on their toes.
-Short & sweet. 30 bite-sized procedurally-generated levels per playthrough.
-Bug sounds!
-Catchy but repetitive MIDI soundtrack you can turn off in the settings.
-All mouse input

Built in a week for 7DRL 2022

So likely a little, uh, buggy. My hope is to keep polishing it up post-jam! Please don't hesitate to reach out or comment with feedback, issues, etc.

P.S. If you're a first-time player, I'd suggest clicking "learn" on the start menu and following the tutorial til you get the swing of things! <3

It took me entirely too long to figure out the mechanic but that's probably my fault, that was fun!
