I wrote about the teaser trailer for Legend of Dungeon last week, noting that the title sounded like a joke. Developer RobotLovesKitty got back to me and mentioned that it actually started as a joke – but then stuck! They also mentioned that they were launching a Kickstarter to fund even more features for the game – and offering a free demo!
Project Title: Legend of Dungeon game for PC/Mac/Linux
Closing Date for Funding: 12/16/2012
URL of the Project: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/robotloveskitty/legend-of-dungeon
From the Creatives: As you explore the sparsely lit dungeon, gather items and battle monsters you will no doubt end up dead, and like classic rogue, death is game over. Except with co-op, instead, you turn into a ghost and collect the glowing souls of monsters your comrades have slain in order to revive. Another interesting aspect of single and multiplayer is that the dungeon doesn’t adjust for player count, so alone you might have more apples to eat and hats to wear, but there will also be more monsters for you alone to kill.
The best part of that news is that there will be a free online demo available till the end of the campaign!
Though still a very early build of the game, you will get to experience the gameplay firsthand, and try your luck at getting to the bottom.
Play by yourselves if you like, but be warned! Playing co-op changes the strategy and feel, as well as making death a little more interesting…
Here is the none-too-serious trailer:
And of course head to the Kickstarter page to access the demo and get more information about how you can support the game!
