New media for Dungeons

When your game has a title as simple as Dungeons
you better have some media assets to back it up. Kalypso has released a handful of screenshots and the boxart showing off their new dungeon-crawling strategy sim. While the graphics won't turn any heads the premise sounds fun, and Kalypso is always about gameplay first, so Dungeons will probably turn out to be a compelling experience.
Ridgewood, NJ, November 11, 2010 - – Today Kalypso Media is pleased to give gamers another look into the dark recesses of the underworld with new screenshots from DUNGEONS, the upcoming strategy/sim title for Windows PC. Along with several exciting new screens, we are pleased to unveil the international cover for the game, which includes a close-up the main character in the game – the dreaded Dungeon Lord. Follow the link below to grab the new images and box art, and prepare yourself for a hilariously fun time fending off foolhardy treasure-hungry heroes when DUNGEONS is released in February 2011.

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.
