About

DUNGEONS OF CHAOS is a tribute to the 2D turn-based pixelart RPGs of the 80s.

A game where you can create your party of 6 characters with a few clicks, or spend more time creating a customised party with feats unlocked in previous plays. Where exploration is encouraged and rewarded, with no level cap, non-linear side quests and a vast array of items, item properties, shops and enemies.

The game already has over 30000 happy players on other platforms, and most often they mention the likeness to 80s RPGs like Ultima or the goldbox games. It is retro. Your hand will not be held. It does not try to have realistic 3D graphics. It is not multiplayer, and never will be. If you long for the days when you traded your sleep for a chance to direct a party of adventurers through pixelated lands of exploration and battle glory, then you may want to give it a try.

And as all existing players already know, all fans and myself help out with tips and tricks, mostly on the facebook page but also on my blog if you prefer that. I do not provide or encourage having a complete-detail wiki somewhere, as the fan interaction on questions and strategy are a very enjoyable part of the game. So come join our community of DoC addicts and play a game where a troll is still a hairy monster you can kill, where there are no level caps, where you are not confined by a slim storyline path, and where it all starts with fighting rats in a cave/cellar. Fans have usually spent anything upwards of 80 hours playing it.

P.S.: apologies in advance for the puns in the game, but to my defence some were added by fans so if it is a bad joke you are reading on some tombstone or note just pretend it's from a fan and not me. ;-)

P.P.S.: I am very open to fixing bugs or typos. But I mostly use British English, so don't flag non-American English spelling/syntax please.

In My Opinion, simply the best "roguelike" game ever! One deeder a predetermined Group of six Characters or craft yourself one together from a Pool of genre-typical Classes to stop an army of Undead. To do this, the Player and his Party gain experience and Equipment in random Dungeons on a felt gigantic Map, which is gradually revealed by Exploration. The Amount of different Items is rich, with occasionally things that can only Be used by certain Classes. All Characters use the same unlimited Inventory and a shared Wallet. The Graphics and the Course of manual Battles are, for example, the old SSI games. Car Fighting Is also possible and probably recommended if you are a bit impatient. To do this, you can preset a Lot of Behaviors for each Character. When gradually Increasing (the first needs something, as the classic Beginner Rats hardly GIVE XP; after that it goes much faster) you can spend a part of the Points immediately (Underlying values, known Talents), for others you need an Instructor who will be responsible for each Specialty First of all, you want to find (well-known Trainers can be displayed in the extensive Character menu [with multiple Pages], including their Whereabouts). Overall, one should already have some Experience with RPGs and also with the English Language, although the School English should suffice. Now, though, I really have to keep playing! Enjoy The Game! :)

The game is excellent. I Think it is enough to warn you that this game is 100% retro, as if you were back in time 30 years and you were in front of an old monitor screen trying to finish the missions of a very basic game interface. He Has that spirit at all times, though of course he has learned well over the years and gives you an almost free experience of the sins of old-school dungeon Games. Basically you recruit six characters from nine starting classes (then you'll see you can unlock advanced classes). Dice Spears to choose personal attributes and nature, and customize it a little (name, sex, Sprite...). Using the skills/spells of the six, you grindeando out there, gaining experience and money, like any good RPG that boasts. Don't Let your ultra-retro look fool you. It Is an extraordinary game to which it Is only necessary to re-accustomed the mechanics. It'S Fair, balanced and open-world. Yes There are quest sequences but you can do whatever you want and go where you prefer. It Is Intuitive and does not penalize you severely by errors of exploration. There is No permadeaths, you can record-load anywhere. There Is a huge variety of spells and personal and group skills, passive and active. There are Also many weapons and pieces of armor that can be craftear or you are acquiring in dungeons and villages. With all this I want to tell you that is a game RPG and dungeon exploration like any other, but with the feature that has all, the essence of the games Eighties where you were on your own plotting in a mapita the passageways and you were finding CAD Unexpected surprise in your wake. If you want to revive those old memories, you have to buy it. It's really good. Oh, and the developer keeps the game very pampered and is on the lookout for the players ' questions on Steam. There is Only one small "but" that I put to the game and is that the interface can be very dirty and overloaded at times. It throws a lot of information from stats, skills and a lot of things that make navigating the menus difficult. I Know the game wants to even emulate the "old-fashioned" navigation but it is a hassle that we could have saved-although then you get used to it. Anyway. Highly recommended, for gamers very old-school or who appreciate this kind of games so crafty.
