Dungeon Brawler takes the dungeon crawl game genre and mashes it with side-scrolling beat 'em up brawler arcade games from the 80's and 90's. Players each control a hero, arrange them in a formation, and prepare for the oncoming waves of monsters, traps, treasure. If they can survive this automatically-advancing onslaught, then they win as a team.

Each player controls one hero. Each hero represents a different theme: chaos, order, harmony, or discipline. Their hero choice decides their starting deck of cards. Each different theme has a different playstyle, but also informs what future cards they can add to their deck.  

Across from the party line-up is the deadly dungeon itself. Whenever a card is removed from the dungeon, be it by killing a monster, the dungeon automatically shifts towards the players. This  game is incredibly fast-paced: no moving, exploring, or down-time. This dungeon is coming at you full-speed!

Fighting is resolved by playing unique combinations of cards, but be careful! Your hand of cards is also your lifebar! Overextend and you’ll leave yourself vulnerable.

You can try our game for free.  Download the Print-and-Play beta now and start playing. 

We believe in our product so much that we are offering free shipping worldwide.  We want to get this game in the hands of as many players around the world as possible.

Shipping costs are included in your pledges for this campaign. You will NOT be charged for shipping later, once rewards are ready to ship. This INCLUDES S&H + VAT.


Risks and challenges

While there is always risk starting a new company, we think the risks are minimal given our extensive business experience both in and outside the tabletop industry. However no one is an island, so Hypercube games have partnered with Gamerati. We believe their extensive, hands-on expertise, plus our other industry relationships, further mitigate these risks.

While the bulk of design and art on Dungeon Brawler is complete, we only need Kickstarter's help to finish manufacturing.

Nonetheless, to ensure the highest quality work and swiftest delivery, we’ve invited only top industry professionals with a history of meeting or exceeding deadlines to join our development team. Of course, it is always possible for life to prevent a given designer from meeting obligations.

We are confident that with successful funding, we can overcome any challenges and deliver a quality product on time.
