Every year, the fine fellows over at r/roguelikedev run a Tutorial Tuesday series - encouraging new programmers to join the ranks of roguelike developers. Most languages end up being represented, and this year (2019) I decided that I'd use it as an excuse to learn Rust. I didn't really want to use libtcod, the default engine - so I created my own, RLTK. My initial entry into the series isn't very good, but I learned a lot from it - you can find it here, if you are curious.

The series always points people towards an excellent series of tutorials, using Python and libtcod. You can find it here. Section 1 of this tutorial mirrors the structure of this tutorial - and tries to take you from zero (how do I open a console to say Hello Rust) to hero (equipping items to fight foes in a multi-level dungeon). I'm hoping to continue to extend the series.
