You and up to three companions are looking for treasure and glory in a dark flickering dungeon full of deadly. Legend has it there is a massive treasure all the way down on the 26th floor. Your quest: get the treasure, and make it back alive. Which you won't, you'll die...
    ...the game is about dying, and treasure.

"You need to see this in motion." - Jordan Devore, Destructoid

"...let that description sink in for a moment, as tiny excitement-enzymes burst from your brain-tubes." - Jim Rossignol, Rock Paper Shotgun


THE GAME:


It is part Beat'Em'Up, like those awesome old-school 4 player arcade games (it plays a little like TMNT and X-Men) and it's part RogueLike, in its setting and content generation. 

Features: 

  • 1 to 4 Player Cooperative Gameplay
    Supports many different kinds of controllers!
  • Real-Time Beat'em'up combat
  • Permadeath 
     
    ...except with 2 or more players, you become a ghost, and have to collect spirit orbs to resurrect yourself. You'll come back with low health, but you'll be back in the game. Once you're all dead though, thats it, game over man.
  • Dynamic Lighting and Real-Time Shadows
    Legend of Dungeon uses 3D Normal Mapping on low-res pixel art to create dynamically lit sprites.
  • The Artwork 
    Based on the character designs of Sebastiaan van Hijfte (svh440 of r/PixelArt fame). Each character is adapted and animated for use with the dynamic lighting.
  • Dynamic Music
    The music generates from tracks composed by David Dirig, it dynamically assembles based on the types of enemies you are confronting.
  • Randomized Content
    Dungeon Layout, Monsters and Item placement, Potion Colors and Devices are all randomized each playthrough.
  • Online Score Board
    describing how you died and how much gold you collected.
  • DRM Free becauseno one wants that.
  • Windows Mac and Linux (+Android +OUYA!!!)
    Legend of Dungeon is made with the Unity game engine. 

What's left to Make: 

  • Online Score Board 
  • More Tile Sets - lots, crazy amounts 
  • Many more Monsters
  • More Bosses - Vampire, The Devil, Bloated Zombie, Unicorn, etc...
  • Tons more Melee Weapons
  • Tons more Magic Books
  • Devices - Artifacts left in the dungeon that when activated help (or hurt) the players.
  • Dynamic Music System

About Us:

Robot<3Kitty is a husband and wife team working full time to create awesome games. The developer, Calvin (Robot) spends almost every waking hour hacking out code and dreaming up new worlds, when not in front of the computer he's staring into space working in his head. His muse, Alix (Kitty) has been taking care of evil marketing and press releases, and other scary things Calvin doesn't like to think about... but lately she has been more active creating art assets for future games.

Our previous work, Neverdaunt:8bit was an IGF finalist in 2011. Our studio and home is a treehouse, in the woods (in the summer) where we happily make videogames all day ...and play with kittens.

We are kickstarting the game to pay the composer, purchase Unity Pro, buy a new dev machine, and of course, more coffee. 

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Balancing, this is tough in any game of complexity. We need to make sure the flow of the game feels just right.

The Dynamic Music is still just in the conceptual stages, it's going to be tricky to pull off without getting in the way of gameplay.

Our ability to handle these risks and challenges comes from an unending perseverance and love for our work. Making great games is what we want to do.

FAQ

  • Yep, that's the plan.... but first we need to get on Steam! We need everyone's vote on Greenlight to make that happen: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/…

    Yes, two steam keys will be provided for the $19 reward.

    Last updated:
  • Yep! Unity 4 now supports Linux. The web player however does not, so you'll need Windows or Mac to play the demo. The standalone Linux version also only supports x86 and x64 versions of Linux, so if you wanted to play it on your calculator/washing machine, that's not going to happen. Still though! Linux Support, yes.

    Last updated:
  • If we reach the Over World - Online and LAN Multiplayer goal!

    Last updated:
  • We will try to port it to as many systems as possible! We are currently looking into what is required to get Legend of Dungeon on the Iphone, Android, Xbox360, the WiiU, PlayStation, and Ouya.
