Action-Roguelite Tunnel of Doom Announced, Open Beta Sign-Ups Now Live

Tunnel of Doom

Digerati have announced Tunnel of Doom, an action-roguelite with tower defense elements by Antti Vaihia.

The game is set in a small mining town in 1903. The town’s mine has been mysteriously closed after an incident, with many of the town’s miners still inside. You play as Angel, the wife of one of the miners, who decides to sneak into the mine to find her trapped husband.

Scavenge for resources, fight waves of monsters with a mixture of traps and makeshift weapons, and search for any survivors. You can find the announcement trailer below.

Tunnel of Doom launches Q2 2021 for Windows PC (via Steam), Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One. The PC version will be having an open beta from January 29th through February 1st, and sign-ups are already live.

You can find the rundown (via Steam) below: Editor’s Note: Additional text from images has been omitted due to being redundant.

Set Traps: It’s you against the hordes! Boost your chances of success and survival by strategically positioning cannons and barricades before battles begin.

Gather Resources: Smash lamps. Destroy crates. Blow up rocks. Search the mine for materials that can be used as makeshift weapons or ammunition for traps.

Weapon Combat: If your revolver or rifle ammo is running low… improvise! Throw rocks or glass. Swing your pickaxe. Break out the TNT. Do what it takes to avoid being mobbed by the monsters!

Find Perks: Better traps. Improved weapons. More resources. There are 50 perks to discover, each offering an array of stat boosts and gameplay tweaks.

Randomly Generated: The layout of the mine, perks, and monster battles change with each new game, meaning every run is different!

Dream Mode: Escape the mine to unlock this new, endless challenge.

Tunnel of Doom takes place in 1903 at Goldcrest, a small mining town. Due to an unknown incident, the mayor has shut down the mine until further notice. With her husband trapped inside, Angel enters the mine to investigate and search for survivors. Little does she know, hordes of ghoulish creatures are lurking in the darkness…

An action rogue-lite hybrid, Tunnel of Doom mixes tower-defense with melee and ranged combat gameplay. Gather resources and use what you find to battle waves of monsters as you try to rescue survivors and escape the mine.
