About This Game

Dungeon Dashers is a fast-paced turn-based dungeon crawler, bringing the enjoyment of a tabletop board game with friends to the PC. The game's design streamlines the core dungeon crawler experience to its essentials, for an intense, loot-grabbing adventure.

Accumulate wealth by smashing boxes full of gold, slaying monsters, and looting glowing chests. Use your gold to buy consumables to boost your abilities or craft upgrades for your equipment. Find new swords, bows, staffs, spells and other equipment hidden in chests obscured by challenges and quests.

Current Features

These are the features that are in the current build of the game so far:

  • Tactical and diverse combat mechanics
  • Epic dragon boss battle and over 15 enemy types to face (many more bosses to come, and more enemy types)
  • Custom loadouts for each class based on loot found in dungeons
  • 13 unique player skills (30 skills planned)
  • 11 levels spread out across 5 environments (40 levels planned)
  • More than 15 unlockable pieces of unique equipment including swords and armour (30+ pieces planned)
  • Level editor with user campaign creation support
  • Original full-length chiptune soundtrack composed by Nathan “Derris-Kharlan” Antony
  • Compelling narrative and character dialogue spanning the entire campaign

Planned Features

Dungeon Dashers is still in development and we're adding new features every day. Here's what we've got planned for future builds:

  • Hardcore mode for those who finish the game and want more of a challenge
  • Online co-operative gameplay for up to 4 players
  • Consumable items, such as potions
  • Weapon upgrades using the gold you've found from looting
  • Steam Trading Cards
  • Steam Achievements

What Others Are Saying

NOTE: This game is not finished, and not, currently, worth $10.

That being said, I'm giving my recommendation for the game. Why? Because it has great potential. The demo, while short, shows great promise, fun game play, entertaining, if stereotypical, characters, and a pleasant art style. As many know already the developer made a 'side project' called Crossy Road, a Frogger clone for IOS and Android. While it annoys me that he went and created a new game while leaving this one unfinished, I can also see that Crossy Road was simple, and took off beyond anyone's expectations. Hopefully its success will help fund Dungeon Dashers to completion.
The latest update says that they are rebuilding the game in Unity, and honestly I can see why this may be necessary, given the limits of the old engine. The only complaint I have with moving it to Unity is the developers suggestion that he might change the art style, which I believe would hinder the game overall, but we'll see.
Overall my biggest complaint is lack of communication by the developer, The last update was in June of 2015, over half a year ago. Before that the last update was in September of 2014, which released the latest version of the game. It seems to me that the game is dangerously close to being abandonware. I really hope that the developer is working on finishing the game, because I really want to see it completed. This was the first, and only Early Access game that I've ever bought, in fact I bought it before it was on Steam. It breaks my heart that there hasn't been more updates on the development.
Andy, if you read this, I don't have a huge problem with the game taking a long time, my problem is your failure to communicate with your costumers. Even if just to say that you're still working on it, you should provide some sort of update, rather than letting us assume that you've abandoned the game.

So again, the game shows a lot of potential, and looks like it could be a lot of fun. However, in its current state DO NOT BUY. Wait until the developer has provided more information on the future of Dungeon Dashers. I will gladly update this review if anything changes.

Great potential. Dead game. Too bad really but that's the risk of early access. Do not buy unless you want a short, incomplete experience that will never be finished. The dev has officially abandoned this game.

Long story short, the developer is a SCAMMER who raked in what he could from this piece of vaporware, then went on to work on a mobile game that is obviously making him money: http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2015/jan/13/crossy-road-mobile-game-million-dollars

For reference, Andy Sum is the guy who should have made Dungeon Dashers.

Sadly, I almost believed he meant to finish this game. Last two updates were in February and September 2014. You can all see why this is never getting finished.

Andy Sum is a scammer and a fraud, please don't buy this and give him more free money for something he doesn't intend to finish.

Mainly posting a review now because I can't believe Steam still has this game up for sale.

It has been abandoned for over a year and only recently the developer mentioned he would come back and finish it after he was away for a year making and working on a sucessful mobile game. I would not recommend anyone purchase this game till that happens and it is fully released.

One of my first early access purchases and the reason I no longer deal with early access.

What's available in the game so far is enjoyable & has a polished feel to it. Gameplay is intuitive & easy to learn. It's also, at the time of this writing (Feb 2), over in about two or three hours. The game has been around in early access since late October. The first update was two weeks later. There has not been an update since.

First there was going to be an update "very soon". Three weeks later, it was "this week". The game remains unchanged, with no signs it has been worked on, aside from the dev saying as much. I have trouble recommending a game that can't keep up with its own schedule, & I certainly can't advocate spending money on an unfinished product that has remained stagnant for this long.

Wait until it's finished, if that ever happens.

Wait till this game is finished! 2 updates I think since its been out and devs always saying next week, or later this week. Save your money and get another game till this one is finished.

Devs like these give Early Access a bad name.
