GDC: Dungeon Dashers

Dungeon Dashers is a slick and instantly enjoyable dungeon crawler. It features 4 different characters (Assassin, Knight, Ranger, Wizard) all with their own abilities which can be used for some interesting puzzle solving for each level. The controls are really simple to grasp and as the name implies, the game moves really quickly.  The game combines a lot of great things in a streamlined fashion.  There is a turn-based combat system which is barely noticeable because of the speed of the turns.  Turns actually vanish if you are not in combat so the game can feel like a puzzle game and a roguelike RPG depending on the level and circumstances.  It’s quite awesome.

Dungeon Dashers promises traps, multiple styles of play, tons of replayability, additional challenges and objectives and online multiplayer.  Honestly, the whole package sounds too good to be true.  The graphics are really nostalgic without being too chunky and pixelated.  This game is coming along great, be sure to checkout our preview in 2012 for even more impressions and information.

Dungeon Dashers is still in-development but can be purchased in it’s current state for $10 from the game’s official website. Be sure to follow the developer on twitter @JigxorAndy
