In Profundis

In Profundis (page is on Kickstarter) is a randomly generated cave exploration game currently being developed by Gamefilter's own JHarris. It's a side-scroller that pulls from a variety of influences, most notably roguelikes for the random terrain and exploration aspects and Dwarf Fortress for simulation of underground rivers and caves.

It’s received some attention so far on and also on the YouTube videos of the project (pitch video with narrative, pitch video explaining engine so far, demo showing a little platforming and the character’s vision)

  1. Nice! You scooped me (and I appreciate you doing it)!

    Everybody oughta give JHarris some money or at least a little lovin’ — this is a cool project.

  2. I’m really looking forward to this game :)

    Best of luck JHarris

What Is Gamefilter?

Gamefilter is a community weblog based in spirit and intent on the great work of Matt Haughey and his staff at Metafilter. It's all about sharing links to interesting stuff on the web, but with a narrower focus on gaming-related links -- good stuff that other people might not have already seen -- and talking about them.

Anyone can join for the low low price of zero dollars, and once you're a member, you have the senses-shattering power to post new stuff right from the front end of the site, and talk about that stuff in the comment threads. You don't need an account to read GFi, but as well as giving you The Power To Post, membership also lets you

  • Thank and Favorite all the goodness
