Default Legend of Dungeon...

Anyone else purchased & playing this title?

Legend of Dungeon is a rogue-like-like, beat-'em-up, 8-bit artwork style game by the husband and wife team of RobotLovesKitty. "Legend has it there's a treasure on the 26th floor..." and so begins your adventure. Get to the bottom floor, find the treasure, and bring it back to the tavern where you started.

Each game is randomly generated, to include the dungeon, treasure, monsters, traps, & lighting. Yes, lighting....which is one good reason to purchase this game. Lights & shadows are dynamically generated for each room; from brightly lit to pitch black. I suggest you watch the video on the LoD page linked above to see what I mean. Also has a web-accessible highscore list (My highest ranking is #102 as of posting time - EDIT: Now #77).

Currently in playable version Alpha Minotaur 3. Each of the alpha releases are following an alphabetical naming scheme. They were streaming the testing of the current alpha build Alpha Nymph the other day (to include shops!).

Bought the $10 version (alpha, beta, & final releases + expansions & Steam key [coming soon - Greenlit!]) and I've been playing this almost non-stop for the last several days. It took me several games to pick up on the techniques you'll need to be successful, but once you catch on, I found it extremely fun. You never know how the dungeons are going to generate or what you'll find through the next door. Plenty of "Oh crap!" moments; both good and bad.

Up to 4-player action (local).

Gamepad/controller recommended! (I actually picked up a wired XBox 360 controller to play this and a few other retro-styled games.)

I remember voting for this on greenlight, looks pretty great. I'll wait until release though, got too many betas going at the moment already.

Alpha Nymph build released yesterday.

Includes balance fixes plus NPC's with shops, etc.

Loving this simple, yet addictive game.

Just got #18 on the top 1000 scoreboard...epic run to the entry stairs on level 26 where I got blocked in by some bad monsters. So, so close to the treasure.

BTW....this game is fully playable even in this "almost beta" state. I've run into very few actual issues...other than this game is frakin HARD to win.

Just did it tho...made it to the 26th floor, grabbed the treasure, and made it back to The Tavern (floor 0) safely. Placed #4 on the leaderboard.

Legend of Dungeon is feature complete and now in BETA.

New build Beta Orc was posted on August 1st. Many new features/tweaks. And...it's now even more difficult!

My first run on the new build got me to level 18 (out of 26). Placed #33 on the online highscore list at the time.

One bug to be addressed is the dead zone on the joysticks for XBox 360 controllers. Somehow the dev's changed it from alpha to beta. There are acceptable workarounds at this time, so it's not a game breaker.

New Beta Orc bug fix build to address the XBox dead zone issue is released.

In addition to my info in post #7 above...when you retrieve the treasure from floor 26, all rooms in the dungeon respawn monsters. Just to make it harder to climb back out of the pit of despair.
