Finally, the game you've been waiting for: Dungeon Deities. Show your friends that you're the cleverest, and create the most fiendish traps sure to kill all of them. Then, when you're done, enter their dungeons, traverse their depths, navigate their difficult puzzles and traps, and finally, find their wealth and steal the most precious treasures: Their orbs, leaving them unable to use special attacks (such as shooting fireballs) in the midst of their own expeditions, or leaving them without their most protective spells.
And all this chaos, deeply intertwined with the Conflict of Red and Blue Kingdom -- steal the orbs of the other team, to make sure your own kingdom finally regains control of Violet Land! King Red/Queen Blue will be grateful for all your help!
In Dungeon Deities, you buy tiles or items and create and build rooms and dungeons in your webbrowswer: There you plan the traps and try to keep your loot safe.
Download the client and traverse the dungeons of other players, gaining experience, battling enemies and solving puzzles to find their treasures.
Welcome to our first "Road to Beta"-post. As we've said in the last post, we intend to keep you updated, and this time, we meant it ;)
As we get closer to Beta, our focus has shifted from new features to bugfixing. In these posts, we'll tell you about some of the changes we've made!
Until now, whenever you attacked an enemy, a number would display the amount of damage you've dealt. Back in the day, we were pretty excited about that!
However, playtesting has revealed that these numbers did very little in practice: As players don't know the internal numbers, knowing you dealt 23 points of damage did not exactly tell you how much closer you were to defeating the enemy. And while it was fun to see those numbers increase with every level-up, the overall effect of those numbers was lackluster to say the least.
We have now opted to use healthbars for enemies instead. When you hit an enemy, a healthbar will appear that instantly shows you how close you are to defeating it. It's color coded, so even in intense battles, a quick glance will tell you everything you need to know!
Numbers are still there, however: They will now appear whenever enemies deal damage to you. Since your own health is displayed as a number, this number has a lot more context, and immediatly translates to "large=danger, small=harmless". While we're at it, notice that there's now an animation for when you're taking damage. A nice improvement!
Since recording the video we showed you last time, we have performed some playtesting sessions on the tutorial, to see what works and what doesn't. We have already changed a few things to make it flow a little better, and to give you the best possible first impression!
We finally generated TONS of more equipment for you to find! In the process, we also tweaked the generation algorithm, resulting in a bit more fair, constant progress as you find that gear! In the shot below, we've experimented with just a handful of graphics and types of equipment. There's more now, and we hope you'll like it!
We're tweaking all kinds of values to give you the best game possible! This includes enemy strength and defenses, prices of tiles and the level you can buy them at, as well as orb parameters. This is not too interesting to write about right now, as you cannot compare the changes to your own play experience, but rest assured that things are happening and improving!
We implemented achievements a while ago, but awarding these achievements is something that is always kind of tricky. Checking for achievement conditions everytime something on the homepage or client is done is somewhat resource-consuming so we had to consult with our IT expert, the Connectibot, to find a solution. Let's all hope it does not break during beta testing ;).
Finally, we're bringing back an old "Dungeon Deities IndieDB"-tradition! Check out this gameplay video of one of the Dungeons we've added!
As always, let us know what you think!
