Dungeon Dashers at PAXAus
Confirmed for release on GOG!
Description
Release date: Q4 2013
Dungeon Dashers is an action packed, turn-based, co-operative dungeon crawler, bringing the enjoyment of a tabletop board game with friends to the PC. Dungeon Dashers streamlines the core dungeon crawler experience to its essentials, for an intense, loot-grabbing adventure.

EPIC LOOT
Accumulate wealth by smashing boxes full of gold, slaying monsters, and looting glowing chests. Use your gold to buy consumables to boost your abilities or buy cosmetic items such as hats. Unlock new swords, bows, staffs, spells and other equipment by completing challenges and quests.

CRAFTING SYSTEM
Kill monsters to collect their crafting materials, explore difficult to reach areas and claim valuable resources. Craft ornaments for your heroes to wear, and most importantly, hats!

HOW WILL YOU PLAY?
Dungeon Dashers takes place over a range of different landscapes and terrain. Some levels feature puzzle elements where your heroes must defuse lever-driven mechanical traps, other levels entail large scale battles where death is more likely than you think.

Will you use your agility to sneak past malicious traps or will you use those same traps on your enemies, pulling a lever at the right moment and plunging them into a pit of spikes?

Aim to get a perfect score in every quest by successfully completing additional objectives such as surviving with all of your party members or finishing the quest in a certain number of turns. Beating these challenges with friends adds hours and hours of replayability.

PLAY ONLINE OR SINGLEPLAYER
Play with your friends online and explore dungeons together or enjoy the game in singleplayer, controlling a party of four characters.

With 4-8 distinct classes, single player and up to four player online co-op, hand-made dungeons and turn-based everything, we’re gushing everywhere about this one.

Originally posted by Doug Walter, IndieGameMag:
Let me say right out that the mechanics are classic DnD, simplified and streamlined so you don’t have to listen to a dungeon master drawling out the corner of his mouth... Thankfully, the interface for guiding characters is easy to understand, the GUI is helpful and uncluttered, and the framerate smooth thus far, so technically it should hold up well upon release.

The turn-based dungeon crawler looks like a SNES Dungeons & Dragons and seems to play like one too. The pixel art accompanied by chiptune beats makes the nostalgia vibe rise high in this one.

One way to get a bit more exposure and popularity might be too support the Steamcontroller.

My friend is off in another state for college so we aren't able to get together anymore for D&D. This looks perfect for us, can't wait for the release. Thank you!
