Beta with full controller support available

Hello everyone.

I decided to open the beta that has full game controller support for everyone to try and get feedback. Most of the UI in-game was changed to fit that new form of controlling the game.

The beta will be open for some time so try it while you can.


How to test?
Right click Quest of Dungeons on Steam -> Properties -> Betas -> "beta_gamepad"

Notes:
This build is supposed to used (for now) only with a Game controller (Xbox 360/One/Xinput devices). If you want to test the 2.0 build with mouse/KB please use "beta" branch. This branch is only supposed to be used to get a feeling on how stuff will work with the controller, what I would like to know is how comfortable it is to play with the gamepad. So if you have the chance let me know.

Progress on the v2.0 Update

Hello!

It's been a long time since I last posted any announcement, but fear not, I've been working hard on this (as fast as possible).

As some of you know I'm working on a Xbox One port of Quest of Dungeons at the same time as the v2.0 updates.
I had the opportunity to port the game and as a solo developer this is a great opportunity to have my work shared with more people so I can support my games. It takes a lot of work to get this done, especially since it's my first console game and I'm learning on the way.

Full controller support

I took the opportunity to add a whole new interface for in-game usage with gamepad. The KB/Mouse is still there, but when a person plays with a gamepad it has full support. This is taking quite some work but I think it's worth it, I know many of you have asked for this in the past so I think you'll like it.

Here are some WIP videos:

The "traditional" interface with KB and Mouse is unchanged.

New Class - Necrodancer

There’s going to a be a new class, a Necrodancer.
Yes you guessed it, it’s an homage to Cadence from the awesome game Crypts of the Necrodancer, you should buy it btw!
I had the crazy idea of bringing Cadence to the game as an unlock-able and not one of the main starting characters, talked to the devs of CotN and the liked the idea (thank you again), so it’s happening.
So among the things that you unlock when you finish the game, you also unlock the Necrodancer, she’s going to be a mix of several things, close combat, magic and debuffs.

Progress

I hope you liked the news, this is just some of the bigger ones, there are several other tweaks all over the game.
I still don't have an ETA for this, and it's coming after the XO release, I appreciate everyone's patience with this, as I've been teasing it for several months now, but things tend to take more time than anticipated, especially if you are working alone :P

This game qualifies as a "Rogue-lite" with very, VERY heavy emphasis on the suffix "LITE".

"The Orc and the Pie" is a joke about how, when you get down to it, the lazy standard of RPGs is to just say there's some monster that wants to kill you, and if you kill it, you get some random loot thing, and then get offered a chance to go kill another orc to get more pies. Whoever made this game didn't get that it was supposed to be a joke.

Play as one of four pre-defined stereotypes with no real character customization in a series of square rooms where you can either spam the ranged attack button (if a ranged attacker) or just ram directly into enemies until they all die.

Then, once the orcs are dead, you get to run over anything in the room while spamming the "pick up" button, and occasionally run all the way back to a shopkeeper to empty out your pockets so you can carry more random crap.

This game's version of pies are largely uninspired. You have potions, "food" that are potions in disguise, armor and weapons that just straight give +damage or -damage with very few exceptions, and you'll largely be fighting enemies on floor 5 the exact same way as you did on floor 1. In fact, you'll probably be fighting the SAME ENEMIES, too, since this game palette swaps all the enemies.

Thanks to a lack of enough mana potions, if you play the mage, you'll be treated to a basic attack spell that takes 5 MP, enemies that take several bolts to kill, and needing to waste a dozen turns to get 2 MP back. Enjoy the tactical depth of running in circles or smashing the wait turn button for hours to get your MP back after clearing a cramped room. Since there's no hunger mechanics, you can waste infinite time, and are directly rewarded for doing so, with only the toll upon your own patience as a disincentive.

Bosses may be tougher than you, but thanks to the I-take-a-turn-you-take-a-turn nature of the game, you can simply walk away from bosses to prolong combat as long as necessary for your passive regen to put you back up to full health while the bosses have no regeneration. As a bonus, "poison" type effects keep working, so getting a single lucky fireball to start tapping away 3% health per turn and then kiting the boss across the whole dungeon is easy-peasy boss cheesing.

Beyond that, everything in this game is either scenery or a target for vandalism. It tries to add "humor" by having random quotes put out there like Dungeons of Dredmor did, but honestly, that just reminds me of how Dungeons of Dredmor is a much, much better game than this. The "jokes" are even mostly recycled, and I can't even be bothered to stop to read them, after a while, much like I can't be bothered to stop to pick up the bajillion coins that fall out of the hundredth palette swapped rat I just barbecued with my thousandth fireball.

Procedural content is only as interesting as the effort put into making each area actually feel different. This game is just the same room copy-pasted every single time. Kick in door, kill orc, take pie. Kick in next door, kill orc, take pie. Rinse and repeat until your eyes bleed. Few games manage to be as offensively boring as this...

In summary, don't play this game, it's a lazy knockoff Dungeons of Dredmor wannabe. Play the real Dungeons of Dredmor.

An underrated gem.

To tell you the truth, I found Quest of Dungeons by accident here on Steam, while I was looking for some new games to play. And I'm glad I found it! At first, it may appear to be just a simple game, but there's a lot of depth in it.

The drop system is great, and you just drop gear for the hero you choose. So, unlike many other games, you can't drop an exceptional armor/weapon that you can't use. This helps a lot.

Some people may dislike the skill system, because you don't learn new skills by levelling up, you have to drop books to learn them. On the one hand, it's a totally random drop and you may only find the skills you want later on in the game, on the other, you can never drop the same book of a skill that you already learned (only if you already have a book in your inventory that you didn't used to learn the skill, then it can drop the same skill book). I personally liked it.

One minor complaint I have is that I found the game to be kinda easy, even on the hardest level (Hell mode).

Overall, Quest of Dungeons is a solid game. Totally worth it even at full price.

Well my friends i have added this to my "Favorites".
this game brought me back to the old final fantasy style yet mixed with final fantasy 7 fighting style.[well almost]
I tried lots of games that can pull me away from my main game street fighter and this is one of them hands down
it's special ^_^.

and i'm giving this a 10-10 stars because of the random dungeon generator ^_^
i'm looking forward for the next installment.

Quest of Dungeons is a simple roguelike game with replayability at its core, you start with a class, one of four and progress from dungeon to dungeon leveling up until you face the final boss, the dungeons and loot are completely random and if you die, well you start over because of permadeath :)

This game is quite difficult, where as if you die you must start from the beginning. However, it is rather fun. Play smart and remember that it is a turn based game and you will be much better off in your approach. It's cheap. The dated graphics are kind of the point of the game. It's not to be taken to seriously, but when you realize all of the subtle nuances of it, it makes it far more enjoyable. The level progression and procurring nice loot, weapons, and armor are taken into account, the game really comes alive. It's not for everyone, this game appeals mainly to the oldschool. It is surprisingly more in depth than first glance portrays. I would highly recommend this game if you have the patience and the will to play such a dungeon crawler. The soundtrack consists of very few "songs" but I find it to be done quite well.
