Concept
Description
Dungeons will be quite a big project as I'm looking to do something simular to the old classic Dungeon Master, well that style of game. Think I need a good story line to go with it and am looking at creating a good atmosphere, very early stages, any ideas are welcome.

In your screenshot I noticed that the wall texture repeates several times on each of the blocks sides. if you fitted the image to the face instead of tiling it you would get a better overall look.
Also, just personal preference, but I find if the geometry is very simple, as it is in your dungeon, simpler (lower resolution) textures tend to look better. (as long as they are not blurred) Also, the fog would look better if it was a darker colour, lighter colours suggests outdoors and sunshine, not really an optimal atmosphere for underground.

Done correctly, a randomized dungeon shouldn't generate too many blocked areas - most good algorithims for it these days include path checking. The trick of it is in developing rooms and triggers at certain levels/areas to further your plot line. I do agree with a few others - the graphics need work. I know you're shooting for an older look and feel, but that's a tricky balance between making things seem old and looking like you phoned it in. The best ways I've seen it done are either using humor (obviously spoofed from older artwork) or by using massively higher resolution surfaces than they used back in the day and then deliberately using the older art style. Suggestion? Find a concept artist. It REALLY helps build a cohesive view of the world you're trying to create.

Oh my..... Not quite the time period we are in.

It's a good Idea but... looks to old and a little ugly, the gameplay it's bad... So... I'm sorry I don't like it.

If you don't already have a writer for this project, then I would be interested.

No opinion on the project for now,, but you may want to find another name. There is already a game called Dungeons... Actually it's on Steam.

Not developed enough of a concept to deserve an upvote.

Thanks nibblebitz, I wasnt sure to leave it old skool as in when the user goes in a direction the camera flicks to that location or have the camera smoothly scroll as in Grimrock, or maybe have the option to choose...

Seems like this should be a cross between Grimrock and Dungeon Hack!
