Default Dungeons - Interview @ Mana Pool

December 7th, 2010, 19:59
Mana Pool has interviewed Realmforge about their upcoming game Dungeons. Here are a few snippets from the interview:

Are there any RPG-like elements across the main campaign part of the game, e.g. will your Dungeon Lord become more powerful throughout or only through each level’s acquisition of Prestige/Soul Energy?

Your dungeon lord has attributes and skill points which he can raise during the campaign. So yes, you will become stronger and learn new spells as the game progresses.

Can you explain a bit more about Soul Energy, the items that can be created using it and how the whole system works?

The vision of Dungeons was to create a game that explains why Dungeons look the way they do in typical (Action-)RPG’s. Why is there loot lying around, why are the monsters only tough enough to be challenging, and so on.

In Dungeons the player tries to make a typical RPG dungeon and entertain the heroes. The happier the heroes are, the more beneficial it is for the player. This is represented by Soul Energy. With Soul Energy the player can buy prestige items. These have different positive aspects.

Prestige items increase the player’s prestige and prestige gives a bonus to his attributes. Also, heroes are impressed by those items and tend to stroll around in your dungeon and admire them. So you can use prestige items to have limited control about hero movement in the dungeon. Last but not least, they make your dungeon look much more impressive! ;-)

Part of the fun of DK was the varied creatures, your relationship and the way you could interact w/ them. To hear that theyre just going to hang around their spawn points like punching bags waiting to get pummeled is disappointing.

Like I read in the comments: It sounds more like a tycoon game now.

I Hope it will not be like that, but even then it might be good.

I will give it the benefit of the doubt

This is my way of the Ninja: I never take back my word

I don't like that monsters aren't roaming around.

I don't get why he didn't like that the monsters needed to be entertained and paid. They're evil. If you don't keep evil monsters entertained or happy then they'll leave you for someone who will. Makes total sense to me.

I'm also giving this the benefit of the doubt, but I'm not as happy as I first was when I heard about this game.

Despite all my rage.
I'm still just a rat in a cage.
