    Dungeons is currently #1 on the sales charts in Germany, and here is just some of the praise for the game so far –

    "’Dungeons’ simulation core, story, humour, and role-playing elements make it quite unique." – Hooked Gamers “An evil experience everyone can get behind – hard, funny and very satisfying” - PCGZine “With clever and enjoyable gameplay that turns the tower defense genre on its head, this one is a real keeper. “ – Strategy Informer

    Dungeons follows the misadventures of the foremost of all Dungeon Lords, who spends his time luring heroes into his labyrinthine creations with the promise of treasure and a good fight - only to be trapped by his ingenious devices.

    In Dungeons, our protagonist falls victim to a devious plot hatched by his vile, nasty and thoroughly vicious ex-girlfriend and finds himself at the bottom of the underworld hierarchy and the top of the dungeon pile. In his world, that is about as bad as it can get. Our lord must have his revenge, and make his way back down the dungeon levels to his rightful place - but first he must deal with his new bosses, the three despicable Dungeon Lords who stand in his way.

    At his disposal are his dim-witted goblin minions who dig tunnels and build rooms to lay out his lair and trap ever stronger and braver heroes who dare to enter, not forgetting to plot his revenge against his ex-girlfriend and his new bosses who think it’s great fun to bombard him with useless tasks. It goes without saying that a malicious and sneaky creature such as our Dungeon Lord has more than a few tricks up his sleeve. Revenge will be sweet indeed.

    Features:

    * Get ready for a fight! Lure 10 different hero classes into your dungeon where 15 different monsters lurk in the darkness
    * 17 challenging campaign missions demand all your cunning to succeed. Survive them – and there's still the custom game waiting for you
    * In a dungeon there's only one way you can go and that’s down. Conquer three different underworld levels and the bosses who guard them to become the one and only Dungeon Lord
    * Prison cells and torture chambers are at your command and ready to capture your next hero and steal their precious soul energy
    * Create the dungeon of your dreams (and heroes’ nightmares) with 50 different objects at your disposal
    * Wimpy goblin workers are awaiting your orders to create your next diabolical dungeon masterpiece

    Ein mächtiger Held durchstreift ein dunkles Verlies, verprügelt bedauernswerte Monster und reißt sich alles unter den Nagel, was nicht niet- und nagelfest ist. Das habt ihr alles schon tausendmal gesehen? Dann wird es Zeit die Seiten zu wechseln! Übernehmt die Rolle eines mächtigen und mächtig bösen Dungeon Lords und erschafft euer eigenes diabolisches Reich im Untergrund.

    Helden werden euren Dungeon besuchen und nach Schätzen und Kämpfen Ausschau halten. Werft ihnen also ein paar Schätze vor die Füße, bietet ihnen ein paar Kämpfe als Unterhaltung und hegt und pflegt sie. Wenn sie dann glücklich genug sind, ist es Zeit, sie "abzuernten". Denn glückliche Helden haben mehr wertvolle Seelenergie, die ihr in euren Folterkammern genüsslich aus ihnen heraus pressen könnt!

    • 240 Gimmicks verwandeln den Untergrund in den Dungeon deiner Träume!
    • Insgesamt 3 verschiedene Ebenen: Katakomben, Tempel und Hölle.
    • Die Kampagne verlangt dir in 18 Missionen deine ganze Bösartigkeit ab.
    • Beliebig erweiterbare Einzelmissionen erwarten dich.
    • Mehr als 10 verschiedene Heldenklassen und 20 verschiedene Monster.

www.kalypsomedia.com (Publisher's website):
    Dungeons folgt den Abenteuern des obersten Dungeon Lords, der seine Zeit damit verbringt, ahnungslose Helden mit der Aussicht auf riesige Schätze in seine Labyrinthe zu locken, um ihnen schließlich ihre wertvolle Seelenenergie zu rauben. Da die Seelenenergie zunimmt, je glücklicher ein Held ist, muss der Dungeon Lord die Helden noch etwas "unterhalten". Hierzu lässt er sie gefälschte Goldschätze finden, ein wenig mit seinen Monstern kämpfen oder auch in Bibliotheken neue Zaubersprüche studieren, bevor er zum finalen Schlag ausholt und ihre Seelen erntet!

    Doch eines Tages fällt der Dungeon Lord einem hinterhältigen Plan seiner Ex-Freundin zum Opfer, die sich selbst an die Spitze der Dungeon- Hierarchie geschwungen hat. Nun muss er sich seinen Weg noch einmal von ganz unten nach oben erarbeiten, um letztendlich Rache üben zu können.

    Auf sein Geheiß hin graben Goblinarbeiter Tunnel und errichten ganze Räume oder stellen Fallen in der düsteren Unterwelt auf. Je mehr Seelenenergie er sammelt, desto weiter kann er seinen Dungeon ausbauen. Je prachtvoller der Dungeon, desto ruhmreicher (und somit wertvoller) die Helden, die sich hineinwagen. Auf diesem Wege verhilft der Spieler dem Dungeon Lord zu seiner wohlverdienten Rache und trifft dabei auf unzählige Helden und verfeindete Dungeon Lords, die sich ihm entgegenstellen.

    Features
    • Machen Sie sich kampfbereit! Locken Sie zehn verschiedene Heldenklassen in Ihren Dungeon in dem bereits 15 verschiedene Monsterarten in der Dunkelheit auf sie lauern
    • 20 fordernde Kampagnen-Missionen verlangen all Ihr Können, um zu bestehen
    • In einem Dungeon gibt es nur eine Richtung: Nach unten. Erobern Sie drei unterschiedliche Ebenen der Unterwelt und besiegen Sie deren Anführer um der oberste aller Dungeon Lords zu werden
    • Werfen Sie Helden in Gefängniszellen und Folterkammern, um auch noch den letzten Tropfen wertvoller Seelenergie aus ihnen herauszupressen
    • Erschaffen Sie den Dungeon Ihrer Träume mithilfe von 50 verschiedenen Einrichtungsgegenständen
    • Gehorsame Goblinarbeiter erwarten eure Befehle, um euren nächsten meisterhaften Dungeon zu erbauen

    CONCEPT

    In Dungeons, our protagonist falls victim to a devious plot hatched by his vile, nasty and thoroughly vicious ex-girlfriend and finds himself at the bottom of the underworld hierarchy and the top of the dungeon pile which in this world is about as bad as it can get.

    Our Lord must have his revenge, and make his way back down the dungeon levels to his rightful place - but first he must deal with his new bosses, the three despicable Dungeon Lords who stand in his way.
    Revenge will be sweet indeed.

    FEATURES

    • Being evil never felt this good - Enjoy a humerous, deliciously dark story in which you try to reclaim your proper place atop the Dungeon Lord Hierarchy
    • Design your ultimate Dungeon - Use nearly 300 unique objects to craft a Dungeon that shows off your maniacal design talents and style, while attracting heroes to their doom
    • Command your minions - Wimpy goblins, clattering skeletons, oozing slime and a huge variety of other vile creatures await your bidding - be it excavating a room, guarding treasure or stalking unwary adventurers
    • Variety is the spice of (undead) life - Nearly 20 monster types, 10 unique hero types, a challenging 17-mission story-driven campaign and a free-play “sandbox mode“ ensure almost limitless replay value
