Kickstarter - Legend of Dungeon
The name rolls awkwardly off my tongue but Legend of Dungeon is a 4-player coop pixel-art-with-3D-lighting roguelike that has already passed its tiny $5k goal. A demo is also available.
Legend of Dungeon is a 4 Player Co-Op Roguelike-like Beat'em'up with dynamic lighting on awesome pixel art.
Legend of Dungeon is about looking for treasure in a dungeon full to the brim with monsters. Legend has it there is a massive treasure all the way down on the 26th floor. Your quest is to go down there, get the treasure, and make it back to the surface alive.
- 1 to 4 Player Cooperative Gameplay
- Real-Time Beat'em'up combat
...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.
