Project: Dungeon Panic! — an Adventure in Friendship! (active Kickstarter)
A mobile roguelike where your goal is to collect cool stuff for your house and make new friends!
Dungeon Panic is a mobile game for Android and iOS-powered devices featuring Roguelike dungeon delving coupled with town/NPC interactions in the vein of such games as Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon. Your character will befriend townsfolk and enlist their aid in exploring the many dungeons of the game world. It is being developed by the Princess Panic team.
Dungeons, as mentioned, will be randomly generated and filled with a host of baddies to be beaten and troves of treasure to be looted.
Movement and combat are turn-based, with all the action waiting on the player. You will have as much time as you need to decide your next move, whether it be to hit that mace-wielding footpig with your Sauce Pan +3 or to turn and high-tail it in hopes of surviving a little longer as a ravenous horde swarms in behind you.
There are dark and evil things in the lower levels, should you last, but there are also equally wondrous treasures to be found.
