Hi everyone! We’re excited to tell you all about Endless Dungeon today, Amplitude Studios’ return to the famous Endless Universe, and our next foray into the rogue-lite genre! We may be best known for our turn-based strategy games, but many of us have a soft spot for thugs and dungeon crawlers, so we’re excited to dive back into our new game. rogue-lite tactical action.
Castaway on an abandoned space station of the ancient and powerful Endless civilization, your only hope of leaving is to unlock the secrets of this place. You assemble your team of heroes and defend your crystal against endless waves of monsters as you dive deep into this cursed place … or (perhaps inevitably) die trying, and end up where you started, because death is not the end here.
But it’s always best to be prepared, so what can you expect to find in the Endless Dungeon?
A whole new story in the endless universe
The Endless universe is full of mysteries, but stranded on this station, there is only one that is really close to your heart: what is preventing you from getting stuck on this station and coming back to live? So many stories that this place and the people here have to tell, you don’t want to stay for decades like some of them …
Tactical team building exercise
You’re not the only one wanting to get out of here, so gather your troop from a colorful roster of characters and see if this time your combined skills are enough to get to the heart of the resort. Switch between heroes on the fly in single player or bring a friend to face endless threats together in co-op.
Dangerous exploration, at your own pace
When just about everything on the station tries to kill you, you might need a break. So take a break. Look around you. Plan and prepare. Then shoot down the next door and let another wave of monsters crash into you in a frenzy of claws and gunfire until you or only them are left standing. (We do not recommend kicking the doors, as they are quite sturdy …)
You might not know what this crystal is, but you do know that it is vital for your survival and your escape. You need it to unlock the doors and power the systems at this station so you can finally leave, but all of these creatures around have an appetite for it. Luckily, you have a variety of turrets and other automated defenses at your disposal, so you can always bring an extra pistol or two to the showdown.
Wait a minute! Crashed in the ruins of an ancient precursor empire? A mysterious crystal to power their wonderful technology? Turrets to repel endless waves of enemies that make escape virtually impossible? This will all sound very familiar to Endless Universe fans, reminding them of our first adventure in the rogue-lite genre, Dungeon of the Endless.
This spiritual ancestor of Endless Dungeon was born out of an idea – more of a joke, in fact – pitched at one of our community events. A small team of developers put together a prototype, and we knew we had something special on our hands with our “Roguelike Tower-Defense Dungeon Crawler”: it’s a race as crazy as this bite of a genre description. . Still, we didn’t expect it to become such a hit with our fans, a passionate community growing rapidly around it.
We learned a lot from making this game, the comments from our community and the stories they told about their best times with it. So we went back to the drawing board and built a whole new experience with the same spirit, emphasizing direct control of the action and a great multiplayer experience, while keeping the same emphasis on tactical combat, wave-based defenses and exploration. !
