A downloadable roguelike for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Download NowName your own price

Excavation Site Mercury is a traditional-style roguelike made for the 7DRLx17 game jam, over one week. Explore the mines, collect rare minerals, perhaps even discover the riches near the core!

When your run ends, whether in death or glory, you can submit your final statistics to an online leaderboard, and compare with others. Note that the submission can take some seconds, because the server is simulating all your turns to ensure that all the leaderboard entries are legitimate.


The game is entirely playable with a keyboard.

  • WASD / HJKL / Arrows keys to move, attack, open doors and so on. The core gameplay is based on movement.
  • Tab / left-click to inspect yourself and enemies.
  • Buttons can either be clicked, or activated by pressing the number indicated between brackets.

Nice game but enemy ai is bad so you can just run from them. Maybe this is a what you intended.

Enemy AI was victim to last-day priorisation, I'm afraid. Leaderboards were right above "AI improvements" and the leaderboards was the last thing I wrote :/
