Today’s Niche Spotlight is Legend of Keepers, a dungeon defense strategy roguelite by Goblinz Studio that recently left Early Access.
Become a dungeon manager for the esteemed Dungeon Company, and ensure your horde of treasure stays safe from pesky adventurers. Choose your boss, hire monstrous employees, purchase upgrades for your dungeon, place traps, and cast spells.
Place your monsters and traps in a series of rooms, building elaborate strategies based around your synergies to vanquish parties of heroes before they can defeat the boss and claim the treasure.
You can find the launch trailer below.
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 Manager!
- 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!
