Vaporum - A Steampunk Dungeon Crawler

by Couchpotato, 2014-05-09 05:09:29

FatBot Studio sent us news about their new Steampunk Dungeon Crawler game called Vaporum. They also sent a video with some pre-alpha gameplay.

Description

Vaporum is a grid-based, single-player & single-character dungeon crawler game seen from the first person perspective in an original steam-punk setting, that is currently being developed by an indie studio. Its main appeal lies in action oriented combat and mechanical puzzle solving, backed by immersive environment filled with mysteries and secrets to explore. Vaporum uses a simplified character development system that despite its simplicity makes every player’s choice matter. The player can develop their own personal playing skills rather than number-crunching power to defeat enemies and overcome obstacles.
