Dungeons 3 releases into the Overworld today with accompanying livestream

Narrator promises evil, excessive narration

Do you like sitting in the cold and the dark? Do you slap things that work inefficiently? Is most of your time spent making up Excessively-Hyphenated-Names and speaking in the third person?

Then boy, do I have the game for you. Totally-not-Dungeon-Keeper-management-sim Dungeons 3 arrives on PC and Linux today, with console versions taking a more leisurely route to show up on the 17th. I assume it’s to look cool, but who are they really kidding? Themselves, that’s who.

In order to celebrate the release, Kalpyso will run a livestream today in order to show the final build of the title and answer questions.

Promising (during the game itself, no less), that it is “way better than Dungeons 1 and 2” (and I’m going to take their word on that), Dungeons 3 follows The-Evil-Of-Many-Many-Names as it finds new lands to conquer and performs stereotypical acts of evil while Kevan Brighting comments on it. For this venture, the title promises:

  • A fully reworked RTS mode for Overworld combat.
  • A 20 mission campaign, randomized skirmish mode, more rooms/abilities than previous games. and everything is set up for online coop.
  • Kevan Brighting and his voice. Also at one point he summons cows.

Having played through a few missions, I can say that while your mileage may vary on the humor, I’m enjoying the gameplay, which mixes up the traditional formula more than I had anticipated.

Some sort of "Destructoid Community Manager/Contributor", whatever those are. Can you eat them? A superelectromagnetic panda powered by Photon Energy and allergy medication. Robo Panda Z was built to fight the forces of procrastination and serial game restarting, but quickly succumb to both. When not busy failing to finish games, Robo Panda Z bakes, rambles about anime/manga (with impeccable taste), and attempts to steal the world’s supply of fluffy animals (with strictly limited success).
