Vagabond – Dungeon and Cave Generation – Part 3

Few weeks ago, I released the version alpha 2 of Vagabond. One of the new features is the ability to mine ore veins in caves. This article is the follow-up of the two previous parts on dungeon generation (part 1, part 2) where I explained how the structure of the caves were generated. However, the rooms were completely empty. In this article, I will explain how the rooms are filled with monsters, bosses, ore veins and treasures.

If you want to try the game and explore the procedurally generated caves presented here, you can play the free demo available on itch.io. If you have any feedback, do not hesitate to send me a message, I would be delighted to read it. And if you like the project, it is still possible to support the game by buying the complete game with a special offer for early birds. ;)
