Dead Man Walking 7DRL Source

I've decided to release the folder that I used to create the 7DRL edition of Dead Man Walking as is. You will need Python 2.7 and possibly libtcod 1.5.

As mentioned in the source, my work is distributed under an Attribution-NonCommercial Creative Commons license.  You are free to do whatever you want with the source code provided as long as you don't re-release it commercially. A minor credit towards me would also be appreciated.

I haven't decided if I'm going to maintain the source code releases alongside the standard releases. If the open source release is popular and/or helpful, I'll consider releasing all versions of Dead Man Walking openly.

Keep in mind that the source code is an amateur project and I had no prior experience with programming until I started @Star Wars ~2 years ago. The code is poorly commented and lacks any serious documentation. Feel free to ask questions about what does what if you get stumped by my lack of clarity.


If you have trouble accessing the source, please make sure you have Python 2.7 and consider getting libtcod 1.5 as well. Beyond that, I probably won't be able to help you a great deal. I can help with issues in the actual code, but getting into the source is not really my field nor do I intend to spend a lot of time on it.

If you want to troubleshoot me about the source or have a cool game/feature you want me to try, you can:

  1. Comment on basically any blog post (on this blog, anyways).
  2. Tweet me (
  3. E-mail me (roocey at gmail dot com).
