Goblinz Studio have announced the release date of their Early Access roguelite dungeon management game, Legend of Keepers: Career of a Dungeon Master.
Players are tasked with defending dungeons and their treasure, as an employee of the Dungeons Company. Recruit monsters, buy traps and spells, expand your dungeon, and deal with random events to ensure you are prepared for raids by parties of heroes.
During a raid, you’ll have a chance to populate rooms with traps and monsters, building synergies and combos to defeat the heroes before they can beat the boss and claim the dungeon’s loot for themselves. You can find the Release Date trailer below.
Legend of Keepers: Career of a Dungeon Master is in Early Access, and launches April 29th for Windows PC, Linux, Mac (all via GOG, and Steam), Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia. In case you missed it, you can find our preview here.
You can find the rundown (via Steam) below:
In this original mix of Dungeon Management and Roguelite, you will lead your career as a Dungeon Master!
- Join the Dungeons Company and climb the corporate ladder
- Crush so-called “heroes” and protect the company’s treasures
- Hire monsters, manage your employees and your stock of traps
- Deal with employee strikes and other fun events
Each run will be different but players will keep some of their Master’s bonuses between runs. Like we’ve already mentioned, our game is a mix between Roguelite and Dungeon Management. How did we achieve that? By running many tests to find the perfect balance between management and dungeon phases!
First, you will have to plan your defense against a group of adventurers. Check their stats and resistances, then place the best traps and monsters to defeat them! When you think your dungeon is ready, let the crawl begin!
You will then be able to watch those heroes die! It’s a reversed dungeon crawler: heroes will move through your dungeon and will trigger the traps you placed. When a group of adventurers encounters a group of monsters you positioned in your dungeon, a turn-based fight will happen!
