The fine folks at DreamCatcher send word that their upcoming Combat Role Playing Game Dungeon Lords
will be shipping on April 20, 2005. The game is an interesting merger of FPS controls with your traditional RPG game and features some cool mouse controls (you have pretty direct control over how you swing your sword). It looked good at last year's E3 and after checking out some of the new media at the official website
it looks to have gotten better.
