    The DROD series began over a decade ago and has enthralled thousands of players. Our latest DROD game, The City Beneath, was made by and for this community. Admittedly, The City Beneath is a very hard game, but it's also a tremendously rewarding experience. We did not make this game for just anyone; we made it for the great puzzle-solvers in the world--the joyful scrutinizers, the illuminated elite! Our approach is to create novel types of puzzles and showcase their facets in the context of an interesting story. You begin as a rather ugly man named "Beethro" who travels deep beneath the ground. There are other people down there too, citizens of a mysterious "Rooted Empire", that are carving tunnels and building things. Beethro just wants to know why, but it's hard to get a good answer. He was always fond of saying "there is no problem that can't be solved with a really big sword," but on arriving at the underground capital, Beethro is startled to find he has to stand in line.

    Fantastic game!
    I really wish Caravel would put its whole collection around here, and/or Steam!

    Just like DROD 4.0 (Gunthro and the Epic Blunder), this game is utterly fantastic. Although not a good game for new players to jump into the series, it is wonderful for veteran players continuing the series. Filled with intriguing new elements, excellent puzzles, and a perplexing storyline that will challenge the philosopher within you, this game should be tried, challenged, and conquered by anyone wanting to sink their teeth in some puzzles.

    Thank you, Caravel, for such a wonderful game.

    I discovered the DROD series when part 5 was released here on Desura. So now I'm still busy with that part. At first I was a little sceptical about the game but then I decided to give it a try. I don't regret it. It's a unique puzzle game which is very challenging. So this part was an instantbuy for me. It does't have an onther gameplay than part 5 but Call of Duty also has the same gameplay everytime. It also wouldn't make sense to change the gameplay in every new part. What's different in this…
