Have you ever wondered why evil "lords" build dungeons in the first place? Neither have I. Tackling a dungeon and coming out alive is such a thrill, not to mention all the booty. However the trial and error of some dungeons can lead many a gamer to frustration and rage-quitting. I think it's about time we flipped the script and took control. That's what Kalypso
are doing with Dungeons
and they're got a new video so you can see just how sweet being evil can be. If your the wordy type (like me) you can read our recent interview
with Christian Wolfertsetter of Realmforge studios.
Dungeons –Sinister New Gameplay Trailer Available Now!
Ridgewood, NJ, December 9, 2010 – Kalypso Media and Realmforge Studios are pleased to lead gamers on a journey into the dark and humorous world of Dungeons today, releasing a new gameplay video for the upcoming title that mixes elements of strategy, simulation and tower-defense. This new trailer takes viewers into the labyrinthine world of Dungeons, where players, in the role of a recently deposed Dungeon Lord, craft insidious dungeons in an effort to entice hapless adventurers, only to harvest their precious soul energy once captured! For more information about Dungeons, which Kalypso will release in February 2011 for Windows PC, please visit http://www.dungeons-game.com.
Dungeons follows the misadventures of the foremost of all Dungeon Lords, who spends his time luring heroes into his labyrinthine creations with the promise of treasure and a good fight -- only to be trapped by his ingenious devices.
In Dungeons, our protagonist falls victim to a devious plot hatched by his vile, nasty and thoroughly vicious ex-girlfriend and finds himself at the bottom of the underworld hierarchy and the top of the dungeon pile. In his world, that is about as bad as it can get. Our lord must have his revenge, and make his way back down the dungeon levels to his rightful place -- but first he must deal with his new bosses, the three despicable Dungeon Lords who stand in his way.
At his disposal are his dim-witted goblin minions who dig tunnels and build rooms to lay out his lair and trap ever stronger and braver heroes who dare to enter, not forgetting to plot his revenge against his ex-girlfriend and his new bosses who think it’s great fun to bombard him with useless tasks. It goes without saying that a malicious and sneaky creature such as our Dungeon Lord has more than a few tricks up his sleeve. Revenge will be sweet indeed.
