Rust Roguelike Tutorial is probably my largest work. It includes a fully playable Roguelike, and walks you through making it in Rust. Nox Futura is a base-building game with lots of similarities to Dwarf Fortress and Rimworld. One Knight in the Dungeon is a traditional roguelike, wrapped up in 3D graphics courtesy of Unreal Engine 4. It’s currently on hold.
