Default Super Dungeon Master - Released

November 12th, 2017, 12:51
A free top-down version of the classic dungeon crawler Dungeon Master has been released on Steam:

Super Dungeon Master

You were not the chosen one.

No prophecy foresaw the unleashed chaos and many died.
You are a ghost, a lost soul wrought from your body.
And yet, the man who captured your soul saved your life too - as you too will soon save others.

Many years ago, the lands turned dark around Mount Anaias as a maestrom of chaos was summoned there; towns were destroyed, cities were besieged and chaos ruled the land.
Many were called to defeat this terrible evil as an enraged beast-army rampaged the lands. Champions arrived with powerful weapons, magickal artefacts, chosen prophets, powerful charms, big axes, tiny time prisms, a dragon companion, even working close enough to Lord Chaos so as to betray them - they all failed.
For years after, there was nothing but desolation as the kingdom collapsed and the people and beasts disbanded into tribes.

You are Theron, student to the departed Grey Lord. At the time of the cataclysm, the Grey Lord protected your soul, even though he could not save your body. Only now has he been able to approach you and offer you the power to embark on an epic quest.
Granted with the power to raise four lost champions, your assembled team must find the fabled Firestaff deep inside the Dungeons of Mount Anaias to defeat Lord Chaos. On the way, you will learn as much of the Champions as you will of the Dungeon Master.

Seek balance. Bring the world back to life. Win.

Features:

  • all 14 levels of the original 1987 classic dungeon-crawler
  • many secret areas and hidden levels!
  • incredible soundtrack from many contemporary game musicians
  • all 24 original characters from the Dungeon Master game
  • 7 additional brand new playable characters
  • all new artwork, replicating the original game-world
  • tutorial to showcase all features
  • 9 extra quests to discover atop Oracle Mountain!
  • detailed world-map illustrating origin of champions
  • original backstories to all original game characters
  • discover the secret of Lord Chaos
  • …why did the beasts join Lord Chaos?
  • …why didn't Lord Chaos have the Firestaff?
  • …why is Gothmog so mysterious?
  • …and why is Tiggy so outrageous?
Learn all the secrets to know all the answers…

Beat it once in three hours,
become Dungeon Master in a week.

Or if you want a faithful Atari ST version and Chaos Strikes Back from the original binary to PC (Windows) for free (no emulation):

Ditto. Top-down takes a lot of atmosphere out of it, but a nice effort nonetheless.

For my part, the real-time first person nature of Dungeon Master was THE major innovation about it as well as the reason it was so great - and it was very significant at the time.

This would seem to not support that.
