A labyrinth generator inspired by the Etrian Odyssey games.

Made for PROCJAM 2017.

This generator is written in Racket and output a labyrinth map in the style of Etrian Odyssey games.

In the generated maps, the starting point of a map is the downstair staircase, and the exit point is the upstair staircase.
The map is divided into sections which can be generated mazes or variations of hard-coded sections.
In the generated sections, dead-ends are used to place points of interests, like events, gather points, or chests.
The disposition of sections follows a simple maze. Sections are connected using either paths or doors.
Shortcut are generated between section that are adjacent and not connected, but far away enough from each other.
