How rigid is the roguelike genre?

    It seems like in game design, cross-genre is more the norm than it is in fiction.

    I dabbled in some roguelike development during the 7DRL section, though the second time the map flowed a little weirdly, and I use numbers based terminal GUIs for certain functions instead of what one might more typical expect out of rogue-like games.

    I like more roguelike functions, and less doing a true roguelike. Specifically precedural dungeons, and perma death.

    But I like the graphical quality that comes with Turn based tactical RPGs like FF tactics. (Battle specific, and normal town navigation isn't turn based.) Though I find tiles a little strict, and prefer the Cluster based turn based tactical system in Arc The Lad: Twilight Of The Spirits.

    Cluster based, for lack of a better term.

    Not getting why this is off topic from finding a game design team.

    You don't mention that you're looking for a game design team anywhere and is read like a story.... Besides that's still off-topic as the section is for active development only.
