Update: The demo now has German, Spanish, French, Italian, and Russian localization!
Unicorn Dungeon is an upcoming absurdist comedy fantasy adventure game for Windows and Linux which will be available on Steam and DRM free download from Itchio and other sites. It sports about 4 hours of engaging and hilarious gameplay.
The good news is that development on Unicorn Dungeon is already practically complete. The not as good news is that quality voice acting and text translation are expensive. The good news is that you can help!
and after this campaign succeeds, you can play that tutorial again (as well as the entire game) with full voice acting!
You hear that voice acting in the video? Good right? Well, that's literally the only voice acting that has been recorded so far because we need more money to pay actors. Additional money raised, if any, will go toward localization and other improvements.
So, let's talk about Unicorn Dungeon!
Set in an environment rife with dry wit and off-the-wall humor, Unicorn Dungeon is the first in a series of six adventure games inspired by “absurdist comedy” such as Monty Python and Firesign Theatre. The series chronicles the adventures of the brave knight Sir Typhil on a quest to find a unicorn in order to be crowned king.
During his journey, Typhil meets some absurd characters and must think his way out of even more absurd situations. The magical land of Artovya can be quite a silly place, but peril waits at every turn for an unwary adventurer.
While the game is primarily a point and click adventure with all that entails, at certain times it magically transforms into a roguesque dungeon crawler in which Typhil must fight for his life against ferocious beasts.
Be a hero today, and help us bring Unicorn Dungeon the high quality voice acting it deserves!

Risks and challenges
As mentioned previously, this game is 99% complete already. It is being released one way or the other, but with your help, we can release it with high quality voice acting.
I suppose the biggest risk is that it may be released a month or so late if recording and editing the VO takes longer than I expect.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
