What is Hashtag Dungeon?

Hashtag Dungeon is a rogue-like dungeon crawler with a unique social media twist: every dungeon you play in the game is made using tweets grabbed directly from Twitter. Players can use our in-game editor in order to tweet out their own dungeons, messages and creatures so that everyone else can play them! Lots of player's tweets come together in order to make awesome labyrinths for people to delve into.

Hashtag Dungeon was developed with the hope of fostering an active and involved community. During our closed alpha tests we've seen some amazing things done with the tools inside the game. We hope to continually update the game with new features, traps, enemies and bosses based on community feedback. We want to award our players for being creative! It's the most important thing!

Do I need Twitter to play the game?

No, you don't have to have Twitter to play the game. You only need it if you want to help make a dungeon. We have noticed a lot of our testers make Dungeon Master Twitter accounts for the game and we encourage you to do so! If you don't want to make dungeons then we have worked hard to ensure the gameplay is solid and enjoyable too!

The game is designed with collaboration and social interaction in mind. We are looking to reward players who do cool things with the tools we give them - this could be anything from adding more tools to the game in later updates to immortalising an awesome player in the game as a character. We want to be in touch with our community as much as possible!

Where can I find out more about the game?

If you want to know more about the game you can visit our website at http://www.hashtagdungeon.com or send the developers a tweet at their respective Twitter accounts: @OxyOxspring and @Kieran_Hicks. They'll both be happy to reply to you when they have a spare moment!

Hey: yes groupees purchasers will be getting their copies of the game as promised. We've just confirmed a launch date for the game on June 1st - so it should be sometime around then when we send them across the keys they want. Sorry for the wait - work has been pretty heavy for both us devs!

Is this game abandoned? Will groupee purchases from 2014 ever get keys to this?
*OKM* Antoine Nov 10, 2015 @ 4:23am 
thanks for the news ;)
Hippyshake Nov 4, 2015 @ 6:43am 
Will do, thanks :)

That's cool - we're probably going to release the beta to everyone who had a DRM free copy via itch.io, that way people can play it and get it back to us before we release on Steam. If you want any more updates you can follow me on Twitter @OxyOxspring as I post images of the new content on there a lot!
Hippyshake Nov 4, 2015 @ 5:58am 
Thanks for the update! If you need help with the beta, I'd be happy to help break it. :) I've done a lot of Indie beta work, and can give you references if needed.

Still working on it! The Steam version is going to have a tonne more content... it's just we've gotta squash a tonne of bugs first. We don't want to release until it's ready.

I'd forgotten all about this game. i need to fire up my DRM-free copy (if I can remember my twitter account!). Any news on the Steam release? This was a lot of fun.
