The Fisher-Price My First Roguelike

You Only Live Once

You Only Live Once is a tiny little roguelike game, pared down to the bare essence of the genre, but significantly different in ways that can't be explained without spoiling the fun of playing it.

It started out as a Seven Day Roguelike, but has had a bit more development (read: debugging) since then.

It strikes me as an excellent way to give someone who's new to roguelikes a look at this strange old kind of game, without scaring them to death with the vastness of the big names.

They'll still have to get used to dying, though. Fair enough; this is a roguelike, and you're warned right there in the title.

(The title, by the way, will probably seem rather clever to you once you've played the game.)
