If you were intrigued with Dungeons
because of my interview
with the development team but didn't trust Tyler's hands on preview
of the game you can now try your hand with the game as Kalypso has released a demo
of the game. The demo features three of the game's 17 single player mission as well as one example of the game's survival mode.
Ridgewood, NJ, February 8, 2011 – It’s time to stop being a goody-goody hero, and start being a sneaky, nasty and vile villain, as Kalypso Media is pleased to announce the release of a free downloadable demo for Dungeons, the game where it pays to be bad! The demo, available at the mirrors below, gives players a taste of what it will be like to be the Dungeon Lord, as they play through three single-player levels, and a survival mode map. Grab the file from any of the links below, and prepare to show those pesky good-guy heroes who the boss is, as you build elaborate dungeons, all crafted with one goal in mind - - to lure in and capture adventurers, so you can steal their soul energy! For more information about Dungeons, please visit the recently launched official web site at http://home.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.
