Reviews

“There’s nothing to rank alongside it. Influences and borrowings be damned – it stands alone and is as brilliantly designed, challenging and cunning a package of ideas and aesthetic choices as anything I’ve seen this year.”
Wot I Think – Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of its pixels: no individual element of Dungeon of the Endless is especially complicated, but together they form a fiendish and unforgiving challenge. If you’re willing to take that on then it makes it more than worthwhile, borrowing from several genres to create something that feels unique - as well as bursting with personality and smart choices.”
8.1/10 – IGN

“From its setting to its design and aesthetic, Dungeon of the Endless feels like a game built for me. It’s tough and unforgiving, but it’s also fair. Despite all the deaths I spent climbing through the dungeon’s floors, I slowly mastered the game. That’s a testament to the roguelike genre, and it’s why I like tangling with it so much.”
4.5/5 – Game Revolution

About This Game


A few hundred condemned criminals were being shipped to the Auriga system on board the prison hulk “Success”. While this was presented as a chance to earn back their place in society by working hard for the common good, they understood that in fact they would be slave labour, sent to colonize an unexplored planet. All they knew about Auriga Prime was what the probes told them: it had water, temperate zones, plant life, and plenty of metals in the crust.


In fact, the planet Auriga once hosted a major settlement of the galaxy-travelling ancestors known as the Endless. In addition, the planet was still orbited by a functioning (and well cloaked) defensive system, which sprang eagerly to life upon the arrival of the Success. Within a few minutes, the ship was nothing but a few large chunks of metal falling toward the planet.


Every set of holding cells also functioned as an escape pod, so the ship let itself disintegrate and the surviving prisoners fell bruised but (temporarily) alive and (momentarily) safe to the planet below. Safe, that is, until they realized that they had crashed through some sort of facility of the Endless, down to a sub-basement so deep and ancient it might as well be called a dungeon…

Gather A Team.

  • Form a team of heroes, each with their own strengths (and psychoses)
  • Equip them, deploy them, and earn powerful abilities
  • Manage the balance between ex-prison inmates and guards
  • Experience four player coop and watch your back

Build Your Defenses.

  • Use the Dust you gather to power the rooms
  • Use scarce resources to help your team survive
  • Build minor and major modules to hold off waves of monsters
  • Decode Endless ruins to discover life-saving technologies

Open the Door.

  • Each door is a danger; prepare yourself and your team for anything
  • Explore and discover an infinity of levels and layouts
  • Carry your crystal through waves of monsters to the exit of each level
  • Fight your way to the surface to discover the truth about Auriga

This is one of the most complex games of Solitaire ever invented.

Play involves "drawing a card"- you "open a room", which may have a number of special properties, including suitability for installing resource generators, getting resources for free, etc.

This, in turn, involves drawing further "cards"- whether any monsters spawn from "cards" you have chosen not to "put into your deck" (using Dust to "power them up").

So managing your "deck" is essentially how you play this game; the "heroes", their levels and gear are mere mitigation used to hedge risk.

This sounds OK in theory, but in practice, this game is very poorly balanced, and due to severely penalizing modding (it's literally not allowed to set the difficulty upwards if you mod the game), it's never going to be properly balanced by modders and is therefore chock-full of newbie traps, poorly-designed difficulty curves and bad design decisions, like weapons that don't scale well with monsters, random item drops that don't scale, heroes that are basically just statistical trash, shops that frequently don't sell anything you actually want, regardless of cost, a "wit" system that's supposed to boost production but barely gives enough to be worthwhile with practically all of the heroes with the Operate skill (and items that can give it are worthless, since practically none of the non-Operator heroes have enough "wit" to matter), etc., etc., etc.

Worst feature? You literally cannot get rid of party members if you want to trade up, short of suiciding them, with potentially disasterous consequences. You meet a half-dozen other folks, but you cannot have them join you in any way. It's a game design decision that makes me shake my head; the choice of whether to stretch one's Food to cover more people, but possibly get stretched too thin and die due to having a weak party, would have enriched the game. But I suspect that the "4 is the limit" aspect was hard-coded into the UI long before "you'll recruit heroes you find randomly"- it feels like it, anyhow.

Basically, this is a messy experimental project where I think the developers lost track of the statistical meaning of their design decisions quite early in the process and, due to their absurd penalty on modding, it's unlikely to ever get polished and fixed by the player community, which is a real shame, because the central idea ("make the world's most complicated Solitaire and make it look like a RTS / Tower Defense game to get gamers to buy it") was very interesting indeed, and in theory, this should be a very good game.

But as it stands, this won't stay on my hard-drive for very long; once I figured out that certain combos of heroes work all right, and realized that runs are essentially pure RNG and involve very little actual skill, beyond managing the "cards" and doing statistical guesswork, and that more than half of the "upgrades" and "defenses" were basically worthless... well, I feel like this was a clever Idea that arrived half-baked, wasn't ever really addressed at a deep level by the developers and can't get fixed by modders, not that it would matter a lot at this late date.

It's too bad, really; this is a game where most of the problems are clearly fixable, but won't ever get fixed.

There's a lady who thinks she's a spider.

Needless to say that's enough praise but this game has never made me shout "nooooooooo" so much in my life. Tower defence, rogue elements, rpg elements, multiple awesome characters....and bloody millions of bloody aliens that bloody spawn when you open bloody doors. They'll eat the face off your characters, use your nice new modules as butt loofahs and bash your crystal until you're in the bloody dark and pausing every half second to feverishly think of some way to not bloody die. Soon you're screaming and ripping your own eyelids off as your team gets mashed into smooth pate.

10/10 would eyelid rip again.

A unique defense game that requires strategy, patience and attention. It may seem to be becoming repetetive until you switch your roster and ship tough. Nonetheless i still enjoyed every minute of it. Great music and art style imo. character dialog and bios are worth reading aswell. Multiplayer is unfortunately reserved to playing with friends as i have seen little to no public rooms.
The rogue-like randomness is not as big as in other games but still noticeable. Ultimately i can recommend this to anyone who likes these kind of games. 30 hours of fun are guaranteeed here for a very reasonable price.

I love games with strategy that is addictive to the point where you must have a "just one more try" mentality. This is one of those games that will make hours melt away. Having said that, it is HARD, It took me 9 hours to beat the game once on Too Easy.

A fantastic rouge-like if you don\'t mind sitting down for a few hours (or taking breaks between sessions). Campaigns can last anywhere from an half an hour to 4~5 depending on your skill level. It\'s brutally difficult and has an unforgiving mix of luck and strategy, but the sense of success after gambling your whole game on a single door really is something I wish I could find more frequently. The art is fantastic and never feels redundant do that that staple random generation feature. The soundtrack really is something else, too!

This game starts out as a simple point and click, fun, and peaceful game.
Then turns into more stress than when your girl says she is 2 weeks late. If you want a heart attack from the sheer, severe incline of pace, this game is for you.

*Recieved as a gift, but would sure pay its price, worth it*

Highly recommended game if you're into indies, and a mix of tower defence with rogue-like elements. The game offers you a "Too easy" difficulty which I skipped and went directly into easy thinking "Meh, how hard can it be?" Only to be devoured by waves of diverse monsters on the 2nd floor. The characters are diverse, each with their pros and cons that fill multiple roles into a team of 4, there are also 4 characters from TF2 which I absolutely love being a veteran of that game. Multiple "modules" to build from which offer resource income, support, defensive and offensive towers. Think tower defence, resource management and beautiful atmospheric monster hunting in a space ship with odd characters and lovely backgrounds.

Dungeon of the Endless is a game of resource management, calculated risks, and careful positioning... as well as frantic re-positioning when the monsters inevitably overrun your defences. Each door you open grants resources that can be used immediately or stockpiled for later floors, but every room you reveal and can't afford to power becomes a spawn point for monsters. Before long you've created a sprawling maze of dark and dangerous corridors, and you're desperate to find the exit. Finally, after one too many close calls, you'll stumble across the elevator to the next floor. And you'll think, "maybe I should open just more door..."

Now let me say one thing - This game is REALLY hard the first few times you play it (even in Too Easy difficulty), but once you get the hang of it, you really start to enjoy it.

I've noticed that almost all of the negative reviewers have only clocked up a couple of hours playing the game and are just probably fed up with the game.

Realistically, this game is a rogue-like RPG tower defence game with retro-style graphics that makes the game (in my opinion) better than if it had realistic graphics. It's definitely worth the value.

But if you want more cotent in the ame, you're going to have to download some DLC. Some of it is free but others aren't (unfortunately).

In the end, my rating is this:
8.5/10. Would rage again.

A cross between unique style defence game that requires strategy and some nice little RPG elements. It can start to feel seem slightly repetitive but changing over characters or researching new tech all of a sudden changes your play style sometimes you also may not have a choice if one of your characters dies via perma-death.

The rogue-like randomness is not as big as in other games but still noticeable. Nice music and interesting character backgrounds and dialogue. Worth a try for those who are into tower defence or rogue style dungeon crawling with a sci-fi feel, but be warned it’s unique in its own right and may not appeal if you’re heavily into your tower defence or RPG and it doesn’t do either extensively or in detail, saying that it’s a thumbs up from me!

I purchased this game while a friend was over and started playing, then he bought it and we played for hours straight and loved every minute of it. Great game in both single and multiplayer.
