Paper Dungeons available on Steam Early Access
Paper Dungeons to be released in Early Access
Description
Release date: Early 2014
Paper Dungeons is a fantasy board-game mixing tactics and roguelike, boosted by online content. With the ability to create and share online your own levels, you are up for an infinite replay value. The game is visualized as a classic tabletop board game with dice and tokens structured like a dungeon crawling game with a puzzle component. You can destroy walls and auto-heal as you uncover new dungeon tiles, with 3 different and originals gameplays: ADVENTURE, PUZZLE and ROGUE.
The game will be multiplatform for Mac, PC and Linux. Even if the game presents some online features, you can still play offline.

High resolution support with native 1080p graphics.

The 3 game modes:
  • ADVENTURE: The unexplored parts of the dungeons are hidden. Monsters and Items are placed at random and combats results are based on your statistics and dice rolls. An awareness system move the monsters towards you if you are close to them. You have to strategize your moves and you can still dig up the walls to get out of sight of an awaken monster.
    You can also distribute your attribute points when you level up. The damages are mitigated by 2d6 dice (1 for damages and 1 for effects). You will be able to unlock different sets of dice (common/ uncommon/ rare & epic) and monsters will use them too.

  • PUZZLE: Hard-core campaign levels with no place for luck. You see in advance what awaits you and have to strategize all your moves. The monsters are here statics and don't move towards you.

  • ROGUE: An advanced RPG mode where your character doesn't reset at each dungeon and you keep leveling up until you meet your demise.

    You will travel on a big map with 4 different regions with specific bosses and monsters.

Features:
  • 31 puzzle levels at start and a huge campaign with 125 RPG levels.
  • 5 classes of character, male and female, with a unique gameplay - Different attack range / deities / damage type / power spells. (Warrior/Archer/Cleric/Mage/Thief).
  • Collect dozens of different set of dices to ameliorate your characters.
  • 2 Visualization modes: Paper Style for high readability, and Board Style more aesthetic with nice colored tiles.
  • A total of 84 different monsters! 6 base types (Basic / Elemental / Vampiric / Magical / Poisonous / Undead). Plus special hidden monsters (4 Mimic chests / 4 Acido-cubes) and the bosses (3 Dragons and the ultimate boss the Demon paper).
  • 3 sizes of dungeon and 5 designs in paper style visualization, 2 different sets of tiles by zone in board style visualization.
  • 4 different starting regions:

    • Temperate lvl 1-20
    • Tropical lvl 21-40
    • Desert lvl 41-60
    • Volcanic lvl 61-80
    • Plus a special difficulty, The Void, much harder with new rewards and alternate color for the previous 84 monsters.

  • 8 special tiles: Walls (Hard walls - Wall of fire - Water), Floors (Combo door/key - Combo Teleporter / Divine ward / Magical Ward / Natural trap).
  • 3 levels of zoom.
  • An Editor mode, to create and share your levels online.
  • An Online Levels mode, to rate and play in Adventure or Puzzle modes with users' created content. With a selected level, or within your list of 10 favorites levels or even directly with random online levels.

Hi everybody, Paper Dungeons is adding 3 MULTIPLAYER MODES, check the Announcements for details.

@Kaaschuig. What is your configuration? 2D Unity games don't need much to run, and we only use simple 3D for the dice, with 1 directional light. On Wndows, the minimum requirements should be: 1Gb of ram, 512 Mo for the 3D Card with shaders 2, Direct X9 compatible.

Even if we support very high resolutions, the game also runs well in low resolutions, ie 800x600, and when the gamel launches, you can lower the game performances to use low textures.

The best way to test your configuraton with this game is to try our old Desktop demo on Jolt :

It's only a matter of time... before I realize I don't meet the requirements. I really need a new computer.
