Eitr? I hardly even know her!
Zack and I finally played Eitr, which I've talked about before, at E3 this year. Then we sat very close together in camping chairs, shared a mic, and talked about it. To quote a YouTube comment, "Is everyone is dtoid just ga...
Oh, good. When inXile launched its Kickstarter for The Bard's Tale IV earlier this week, there wasn't much to go on in terms of actual game footage or assets. Here's an in-engine look at the hopeful dungeon crawler which, at...
Out now on PC
Realmforge Studios, like many old school PC gamers, misses the legacy of Dungeon Keeper. They've kept that spirit alive with Dungeons 2, which is currently available on the PC, but according to a submission to the ESRB, PS4 f...
Full release on April 23
It has been a while since we were first entranced by the "why hadn't anybody done this yet?" rhythm dungeon crawler Crypt of the NecroDancer, and now it's finally in the home stretch. After a nine-month bout in Early Access,...
Essentially, it's Shadowrun, but set in space. I'm perfectly fine with that
Juggernaut Games’ Kickstarter-funded sci-fi dungeon crawler StarCrawlers went into Early Access on Steam just a couple of weeks ago and seems to be doing quite well for itself based on the positive Steam reviews po...
VR mode looks cool too
More cats? More cats. And, hello, the ability to tame wild animals to fight on your behalf? I'm into it.
The dungeon brawler with the funny hats and great lighting, Legend of Dungeon, is getting the free Legend Heroes expans...
Spill the wine, not your blood
Bloodborne can get pretty rough at times. All Souls games can. To help you ease from the frustration to the fun zone, here are a few tips to help you on your way.
General non-spoiler tips will be frontloaded at the top, but the progression-spoiler ones will be in the second section. Note that no bosses or story elements are spoiled, just navigational tidbits in case you get lost.
Hidetaka Miyazaki created a legacy with Demon's Souls. With three Armored Core games under his belt at From Software, Miyazaki dared to capture the spirit of the King's Field series for a new era, and thus the Souls...
StarCrwalers Early Access
They see me crawlin'... They hatin'...
Just over one year ago today, Juggernaut Games took its promising cyberpunk-in-space, first-person dungeon crawler StarCrawler to Kickstarter. Easily surpassing the $65,000 minimum goal necessary to fund the game, it ev...
1D Dungeon Crawler played on LEDs with a spring
Of all the games I saw at this year's EGX Rezzed convention, Line Wobbler is the one I kept finding myself recommending that people go and check out. It wasn't the most in depth or complex, but a 1D dungeon crawler played wi...
But hopefully, you'll have two to play with
There’s something serene about exploring a desolate place for the first time. Too often in games I find myself dropped into an environment, expected to pick up the pieces quickly to achieve a goal and left with little t...
Hardcore dungeon crawling with a new perspective
Over the years, Atlus has become one of the more endearing presences in gaming. One thing fans appreciate is its tendency to switch things up. The publisher has a handle on the niche gaming scene, and it's reassuring to know ...
Even in pre-alpha, FatBot's debut indie RPG is looking incredibly polished
If you think that “steampunk dungeon crawler” sounds like Occam’s panty/brief-dropping sludge rock jug band, you would of course be correct. It also happens to be the genre type of FatBot Studio’s pro...

Update adds many new monsters to embody
Crawl, the multiplayer dungeon crawler from Powerhoof where you control the monsters and try to kill you friends, just released a new update on Steam today. In addition to a big list of bug fixes and stat balancing, the Plague Mushroom update introduces a ton of new content.
The perfect sequel
The first Legend of Grimrock was damn near perfect. Coming seemingly out of nowhere, it put a fresh new face on the dungeon-crawling genre. It was a game that didn't forget its roots yet also didn't forget that we live in a different time.
It's no surprise, then, that the sequel is absolutely stunning.
Enter the Gungeon trailer
Dungeon crawling gunplay for PS4, PC/Mac/Linux
Devolver Digital has announced it is publishing Enter the Gungeon next year.
Something about, "A gun...THAT CAN KILL THE PAST" just won me over. I don't even have to understand what it means. Plus there's table fli...
Make way for the villain
Being the bad guy has its perks. With an entire force of orcs, goblins, and other nasty creatures at your bidding, more gold you can count, and a near infinite supply of dark magic at your disposal -- it seems like you've got...
Eitr? I hardly even know her!
Eitr. Well, this looks lovely. Dungeons. Long pixel limbs. Flaming swords. Skeletons. Dashes. "Touch?" prompts. My kind of jam. And two people made this?
Also, the second half of the trailer is a bit more exc...
Roguelike FPS wrapped up in neon swag
The security system in Highrise Hunting Grounds has gone rogue, and you’ve been sent to shut down the mainframe. With only six initial bullets, you must fight your way through eight levels of neon jungle rife with lethal spiders, turrets, bush worms, and feisty cat-balls.
It’s a good thing your bullets bounce back, because you’ll need them.
Rogue Wizards Kickstarter
Zap zap zap
Many of us have crawled through dungeons hundreds of times, so it takes some special kick to get us to notice. Rogue Wizards has two: a city-building component that seems like it could be addictive and a cool visual effect r...
Looks like my weekend plans have been made for me
Talented Melbourne-based indie developer Powerhoof has announced that its delightful local (for now?) multiplayer game Crawl is getting a fairly substantial update titled Demon Lord.

Publisher Devolver Digital and game developer Terri Vellmann are pleased to announce that the gloriously neon-soaked, procedurally generated first-person shooter, Heavy Bullets, is leaving Steam Early Access today. It's avai...
Go try it if you haven't already
Diablo III has had a tumultuous history to say the least. Always-online DRM, the Real-Money Auction House, and loot problems plagued the original release -- all issues that took months to address. It's a hot-button issue even...
Powerhoof expects to have Early Access updates 'through at least early 2015'
After a short delay, Powerhoof's four-person dungeon crawler Crawl has been released on Steam Early Access for Windows, Mac, and Linux. It casts your friends (soon to be enemies) as monsters and traps while they try to take ...
The dungeon crawler 'where your frinds control the monsters'
I absolutely loved the way Powerhoof handled its delay of Crawl due to some untimely tax issues that needed to be resolved before the game was released. The studio wasn't sure how long it would take to get back on track, but...
Diablo finally sacks the Middle Kingdom

Crawl will be a few days, or weeks, late
We only just got word that Crawl would arrive on Steam Early Access on July 17, but that's no longer the case. The four-person dungeon crawler is going to be late -- "it could be a couple days, it could be a couple weeks," re...
Be a tentacle monster, suction your friends' faces off
Also, the Coven is going to turn you into a toad.
I have been super excited for Crawl since last year. It's a four player dungeon crawler. The twist in Crawl is that your friends play as the assorted mons...
