Grid - January 2023

Grid theme image

Some of the greatest games were built on a grid based system. Games such as rogue and Tetris have created entire genres and new forms of gameplay. Grid based games even originate from ancient times, look at Chess/Chaturanga for example, which was created sometime around 600 AD. Also, creating a grid based game does not confine you to 2 dimensions, look at Minecraft for example, which is essentially a 3D grid based game. Old school 3D dungeon crawlers also have their maps generated on a grid. Now the question is, can you create a completely new form of gameplay based around a grid of some sorts?
