Desktop Dungeons  



Desktop Dungeons finally sees full release on November 7


4:30 PM on 10.29.2013



It has been ages since we first learned that the bite-sized puzzle roguelike Desktop Dungeons would be getting a full release, and it certainly has come a long way from the original freeware version in the time it has spent in beta. The title is gearing up for its Steam release on November 7 by offering a 10% discount for pre-orders, bringing the cost down from $14.99 to $13.49.

Be warned: Desktop Dungeons can be incredibly addictive. Since each run lasts only fifteen minutes or so, it is easy to fall into the Civilization-esque "just one more" trap, losing hours upon hours of time in the end. The progression of unlocking new races and classes only exacerbates this. I am equal parts excited for the full release and fearful that I will be reduced to a puddle of mush from doing nothing but playing this. Again.

Y2K is a surrealist fantasy told through the lens of a Murakami-loving hipster

Y2K began with protagonist Alex Eggleston returning to his his hometown from college. I watched him gaze out of bus windows until the scene shifted to him sharing a seat with a man in a panda costume. This was jarring enough to give Alex reason to look completely shaken and offended, and as the jaunty soundtrack suggested, should have felt super quirky and weird. It didn't.more
