Interesting postmortem. It is kind of positive to see someone else having coding problems. Not because of malicious joy, but because it shows me that I'm not the only coder having problems.
Your game seems cool to me. If only I would like roguelikes... I don't like permadeath. But your game looks really cool.
The three bad things in games (for my personal taste only) are:
- action (including jumping)
- 4X games
I don't know if continuing the game-development after the jam would be recommendable. It's probably not fun. But the game seems worth it.
