Battle Weary is an experiment to see if the roguelike genre could be made enjoyable with a screen reader. It was made for the 2019 Seven-Day Roguelike (7DRL) game jam.
It features a fun deckbuilding mechanic, and should be playable with most screen readers. (Only tested with VoiceOver.)
Most of the gameplay uses the arrow keys and space bar to select actions or move around the map. You can press "H" at any time for help and "C" for an overview of your card decks.
If you are using a screen reader, you can also press "S" to speak the current status of the game.
In order to make playing the game less tedious for screen reader users, this roguelike moves by "room" instead of by "tile" and doesn't bother with relative position of your enemies.
Your character is represented by a deck of cards. At any time, you have a hand of cards, and when you fight a creature, you can play any cards you want out of your hand. When you run out of cards to play, your opponent gets to play a card, and then you draw four more cards into your hand. You die if you draw four "deadly" cards as your four cards - "Wound" cards, "Exhausted" cards, and "Curse" cards. There are ways to get rid of these cards from your deck and buying new cards – explore the town and other areas to find them!
