Bring the excitement of playing a dungeon tournament board game to your screen, in beautiful gruesome detail. Roll your five action dice and use those actions wisely. You have two minutes. There really is nothing quite like The Living Dungeon.
Up to 9 players can take part in a battle of wits, luck and skulduggery. Survive other adventurers, monsters, and the dungeon itself through combat, agility or dungeon manipulation. Only the strongest, fastest and smartest survive.
Only a few of the press have played this game so far, but they have had some lovely things to say.

Many years ago, an ancient and mysterious structure was unearthed in the desert. An expedition entered this ancient artefact and found, at it’s very center, A giant magical crystal that would grant the structure power. Foolishly, they then activated that crystal. The structure twisted and contorted to an unseen will, and only a few of the expedition made it out alive.
That structure was named The Living Dungeon. Powered by light and protected by darkness. It is home to fiends and monsters. It rearranges and shapes itself in the hope of consuming all who enter.
Over the years many came to see this wonder. Slowly a town was erected around it. The town became a city and the city became a culture. Now the lords of the city use the dungeon as punishment for those who anger them and entertainment for their subjects.
About the game
Below you can see a game in play and an early mock-up of the video game version. If you want a quick demo of a typical turn have a look at this video, but I won’t go into the nitty gritty of the rules here. Generally speaking, a player chooses an avatar and skills, they get a couple of action chips and must try to complete a random objective if they wish to survive. They can run, jump, fight, shoot and also rotate and flip sections of the dungeon. The game can be played with 2-9 players and with or without a GM. Game sizes can be tailored to create games that last 10 minutes or 3 hours.
Honestly we’d love to invite all of you to come in and play it with us but our office is just too small. All we can do is make it into a kick ass video game and share it with the woooooooooooooooooooooooorld.
We’re also going to be keeping a dev diary so you can follow our misadventures. Hope you all want to get involved.
