Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to make this game as FUN and AWESOME as possible as we can! We hope you enjoy the current version! However we do feel that the current version lacks content, and we're still looking for that magical spark to make the game to reach its full potential. That's why we need your help! Frequent updates based on your feedback will create something AMAZING!. We look forward to working with you!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're aiming to launch this game officially in the 2nd quarter of 2016. We promise that our journey together will be an exciting one! Never a dull moment.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Those who join us for this Early Access will have access to various content early in the development stage and will be part of the exciting development process! Here are the things you can expect to see during Early Access...

  • More heroes, jobs, and cards!
  • More stages and dungeons!
  • More game modes! (Competition, collectible)
  • Content based on your feedback (Heroes, cards, dungeons)
  • Better animation, parodies, sound/visual effects, etc.
  • Others (Training, tutorial, achievement)

Right before launch, we will be working on...
Localization (We will probably need your help with this as our first language is not English...)
Polishing sound, effects, animation After that, we launch! (The beginning of something even more exciting! =)”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We're currently in an alpha stage. We want to see how far we can take this thing through Early Access, and we believe with your support, sky is the limit!

Scenario Mode: In current version, there aren't many heroes or cards you can play with, but don't worry, the number will gradually grow =) So right now, we have...
  • Two heroes, two jobs (warrior, wizard), and enemy heroes! (The mean, and not so mean ones).
  • Cards: Different set of cards for each job (aka class).
  • Dungeons: There are four dungeons for one area
  • Deck-building system

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes. The price will be raised appropriately until official launch as more content are added. We decided to increment the price because...
  • We don't want to sell an incomplete game at a full price.
  • We want this low price to let as many users to participate in the development as possible.
  • We want to give this price benefit to early participants. (The Early Access version entitles to the free version of later releases.)

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“In every possible way, we want you to get involved in the development. We want your feedback on all aspects of the game from heroes, jobs, to the very core gameplay mechanic. Your feedback/support, and the creativity/openness from our side will make the game better and better. Additionally awesome dungeons, and various heroes/jobs/cards will be introduced as we move forward.

The Update is Now Live! Defeat Beerholder!


Hey guys, as I mentioned before this update will help us decide when to fully launch the game so please give us a lot of feedback/reports, and hopefully you guys enjoy the new update! Now, here's the patch note.

Added the Nasty Big Boss "Beerholder"
You can take up to three heroes and battle this guy working as a team!

Hideous!

Added Party System.
- Setup a party consisting of three heroes.
- Only one of three heroes can be played in a typical stage.
- However!, as I mentioned above, in the boss stage, all three heroes can participate.


Added Tutorial for beginners.
Added new stages. (13 main, 5 sub)
We're aiming for 24 stages in total at full launch. Crazy!
The World Map: Now it looks nice and shiny with some fancy animation.


Added 54 New Minion/Spell cards!
Some spell/minion cards will have dummy images for now. They will be done soon!
*User idea cards: they also have dummy images for now so don't hate us yet when you see having the same image as other cards!
Speaking of cards! you can now have up to whopping 20 cards in your deck.

We tweaked the game system a little bit.
You now spend 20 Gold to draw card instead of 40 Gold.
Card Equipment System
aka the system that no one seems to be taking advantage of...=(
- As long as you have any AP left, you can equip a card.
- The cost for that card is reduced by the remaining AP you used to equip.


New Game Modes! (win conditions)
Duel: Defeat the enemy hero to win.
Annihilation: KIll the Enemy Hero and all his minions to win.
Rush: Roll around the board as many times as indicated to win.
Hunt: Kill the designated minion(s) to win.
Collect: Collect all the items scattered around the board to win.
Deliver: Get the designated item and race to the Starting Space.
Giant Boss: Defeat the boss who can grow to giant-size, to win.

*Don't forget to check the win condition on the top!


English Localization
It's still being reviewed, and you may notice some grammatical mistakes here and there and may even see some inappropriate expressions. It will be polished for sure before the full launch.

Others
*Unforunately all your progression so far will be lost with this update. Sorry guys!
Improved sound effects and animations.
We got rid of the Artifact System because it just made things complicated.

About This Game


A long time ago in a board far,far away.... (Further than your grandma's house) Ancient lords of the races found a sacred board, and they were given a pair of dice created by the Greater Power. Three for the Elves, seven for the Dwarves, nine for the Humans.... and ONE DIE that rules them all. DICETINY!

Save Middle Board from a very very evil and serious sage named Dead Serious and his followers in this Card-boiled RPG Under the Influence. Before you know it, you will be laughing at humor and parodies sandwiched between Fantasy and Popular Culture!

features


  • Throw your dice and use your cards wisely to beat enemies!
  • Summon minions and use spells!
  • Defeat enemy heroes to unlock playable characters!
  • Four stages with unique minions and enemy heroes with attitude!
  • Collect cards and build your deck!
  • Puns and parodies are our middle name.

So I decided to try the game. However, it is very laggy on my computer so I am not able to play it at all. It will be nice if the dev can optimize the performance and reduce the lag. Although it is possible that my computer is not capable to run the game, but it will be nice to improve the performance so it can run on my system. Thanks.

This game hits the target demographic that Culdcept, Guild of Dungeoneering, and Card Hunter does, with sarcastic humor and good board/card game design and card play. Right now it's early access, so the game is very incomplete, but something to put on your watch list to buy for sure when its ready to go!

The game is a deck building game, but played on a board where you roll dice to move around, and deal with the challenges on each space through your characters abilities or cards you can play from your deck, all the while fighting the larger threat of the boss you must fight who is also traversing the board. It has good strategy elements, fun graphics, and a touch of randomness that can make you cheer or cry out in agony when that one die roll does or doesn't go your way.

[Early Access Review]

Dicetiny is a very entertaining game, and it is also pretty hilarious with low jokes and freaky references from the very first second.

Gameplay-wise it may strike as very random at first, and it is, but as soon as you get the mechanics and start building a strategy you can curve the odds in your favour. It's a game with dice, so it will always have a degree of unpredictibility on any turn.

There are some minor tweaks to polish the user interface and translation, and some mechanics like deck-building are not very interesting due to the lack of content. I presume that when it is finished it will be pretty unique.

The game doesn't take itself very seriously, and this is good. You start playing it and suddenly you have spent 3 hours on it. I did enjoy the innovative gameplay and hope to get more content soon!

The game isn't well balanced, there's no tutorial and you never get a clue as to what the mechanics of the game actually are. It's a real pity as the theming is fun and has a lot of charm. If I hadn't given it 3 hours hoping the gameplay might level out I would be asking for my money back.

I like this game, i've been looking for a single player board game type game and this is exactly that. A few problems here and there that I will talk about later, but first, the good.

Good:

- Very nice art, looks unique and fits nicely.
- The concept is very nice and fills a spot in my library that I had been wanting to fill for a while.
- The variety is nice, from what I have played so far there are a nice amount of monsters, cards, enemies, variations and so on, always could be more but it's is nice for the time being.

Critisism's:

- I find myself looking at the screen at times wondering where I have seen the same screen from. This game borrows from many other games and sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesnt. The thing I like the least is the obvious hearthstone copying of the deeck builder as well as the card backs. Sure it doesn't effect the gameplay but it still makes the game feel a bit cheap.

- I have found myself at a point in the game (the wolf enemy) where I get destroyed against him/her but easily win the prior rounds. Im talking no-hope lose from round 3 destroyed gainst the wolf. At the moment it is hard to tell if it is something I am doing wrong, or whether my class just cant beat the character. It gets very frustrating.

It is hard to say whether iI recommend this game, I have made it as far as i can (because of the wolf boss that i simply cannot beat), but I had fun coming this far. It is also very cheap at the moment.

... In conclusion I think you should wait for the game to come out completely, and then go on sale before you get this game.

I'm looking forward to eventually playing Dicetiny, but I still can't get it to run. I may be missing something, but I've just downloaded the current version of the game and it just comes up with an error message. It looks like a great game potentially, but I can't recommend it at the moment. I'd be very happy if sanyone reading this could tell me what to do to get the game to run.

There is randomness, but there are also tools to control randomness - after 1-2 hours you will enjoy playing that!

I applaud them for having the price cheaper while in early access than it will be once it's released out of early access. Usually it's the other way around.

That said, the game is definitely an early access game. Content is limited. But what there is, is good, and in my opinion it's worth investing in this game in the hope for more content.

Graphics style is gritty cartoon and caricature. Oversized heads, bulging muscles, punches to the face, etc. There's a lot of humor in this game and pop culture references.

It's basically a board game with cards. You and an opponent take turns rolling dice and moving around a board. When you land on a space there might be a neutral enemy you can either fight to get gold or hire them so that they will fight the opponent. The battles are just one hit and then they are done, it does not continue until someone dies. So basically you're trying to whittle down your opponents HP to zero over time. Each game I've played has been fairly short, so it's not like a long drawn out campaign.

You can use cards to lay down friendly minions, spells to harm enemies, movement spells to move you where you want to go, and other options. But those cost action points to use and you only have so many action points per turn.

There are different characters you can play and they each have their own special abilites and cards. That makes for a nice variety in playstyle.

tl;dr breakdown:


Card game on a square board. (or a board game with cards!)
Early Access
Limited content at this time with promise of more coming
Play as different characters, each with own style and cards
Short games - good for a quick gaming fix
Humor (the title scroll is hilarous)
Buy it cheap now before they increase the price!

Dicetiny is a fun little dice rolling and deck building game. In the video above we show a short preview of a game on the beginning level.

Fakedice provided a review copy of Dicetiny to The Hidden Levels and for that we thank them greatly.

My first impression was that the UI was very similar to a certain card game I play on occasion. The artwork is very similar in the deckbuilder only however, so we can move past that. The cards are interesitng and the rest of the artwork is highly stylized in a good looking package of minions, creatures, characters, and cards.

The game mechanics are also interesting albeit not groundbreaking in terms of a board game. You roll dice to move around the board, playing cards and defeating minions until one of the two players is at zero health. The unique aspect seems to be the character abilities such as giving a minion +1 damage, or giving your character +2 attack power. That's it essentially, you roll dice and play cards, attempting to defeat your opponenet or minions. You can alternatively pay to hire some minions which became fun when our hero was able to give them more attack power with his special ability.

The replay value is relatively high, you can gain more cards and heros, build decks, and play consistently without it being a repetitive experience. The game is stilll in early access so the potential for more additions is more than a certainty. There are also a substantial number of gaming related "easter eggs" or small jokes relating to other games. It took me a bit to realize that "Middle Board" was a play on Lord of the rings. There is a solid mix of humor, strategy, and fun that seems to make this a solid board game experience for the PC.

I'd recommend picking this one up if you have any plans to play it, especially since during Early Acess it appears to be substantially discounted. The price increase will be corrolating to the addition of more content towards release and it appears that it will leave Early Access at the $20 price point. I plan on coming back to it each time they unlock more levels and content.

Thanks for reading / watching. Check out www.thehiddenlevels.com for previews, reviews, and gaming news!

DICETINY: The Lord of the Dice is a board/card game with RPG elements. This game is in Early Access, and at the moment it does not have too much content.

When I first started playing this, first thought what come to my mind that its a bit looks like Hearthstone, but this not that.
This basically a board game with cards. In every turn you and your opponent roll a dice and move around a board, the two characters moving in different way, one start a circle from left, other from right. The game will be end when someone has no more HP. If you arrive for a land with enemy, you fight , but if that enemy is neutral you have a option to hire it.

You can use a different cards, some cards boost you, some put down friendly minions, etc. If you want play a card, this cost some points what you get in every turn. At the start you have one character to play, other you can unlock when you beat them in the story mode. All heroes have own special abilities and cards as well. Also you can create your own card decks.

The graphic style is a caricatured carton, and this looks nice. Sounds and music also good.

So my verdict

+complected with humor
+nice graphics
+steam cards
+cheaper in EA than later when got full version
+fast matches

-at the moment not too much content
-no multiplayer
-no steam achievements

If you like board games you really should try out this one. This game has a good gameplay, nice graphics and humor. However at the moment not have to much content because game is in early access now, but to compensate this, now game costs less. I think if you are interested in this, it's good to buy it now, as later will cost more.

So I heard about this game through Letigress' stream. My understanding is she partnered up with the developers in order to help promote the game, which is neat. So lets get into why I DO reccomend this game...
The style is very remincent of Hearthstone. The cards look slightly similar but the style is VERY different. I mean, for starters, its a board game. Games take anywhere between 5-15 minutes for a round, which I think is perfect. There is a fair amount of strategy that goes into a match. For $5, I think it is totally worth giving this game a try and seeing where the developers take it! Now... Here is what I'd like to see from the game...
-MULTIPLAYER! This game needs to let me play against my friends. That's like 80% of the appeal. I've already beat all the bots. Give me new game modes. This should be the developers first priority.
-Card variety. Right now the starter deck gets stale after 3-5 hours. There is very little you can do with it at the moment. This game needs 100+ cards to REALLY start to be something special.
-More characters. This is a given and the developers know this. I'm excited to see what they come up with. The abilities of the NPCs you can play seem neat.
-Let the text and dialogue move at the player's pace. Create like a "Next" arrow when interactions and stuff are happening. Everything moves so fast right now and I missed a lot of it when I first started.
-New boards. The board now is cool, but I'd like more stuff to happen on it and in the future even have different boards that aren't as simple as a single square. Maybe something that can accomodate more than two players?

That's all I have for now. I'll update as the developers do. You should get this game. It is cheap and a lot of fun! I only have 1.4 hours shows while I write this, but played offline for 5ish hours. I'll probably play 5 or so more on this patch then wait for updates. Thank you to Letigress for turning me on to this! :)
Cheers.

This Culdcept-style game might become something great later in development, but the current very basic levels (and rampant Engrish) mean this is basically just a proof-of-concept demo. Only buy it now if you're trying to take advantage of the low early adopter price.

Dicetiny is a ton of fun, even while in early access mode. It reminds me of magic with a condensed monopoly board, in that the corner spots are special- a shop, a dungeon, and a buffer zone. I can't wait for the full release, so far there is only one area with 4 different characters to battle. Once you win against a character you can create a deck for that character and battle as them. Each character deck has its own strength and weakness. If you're looking for a single player board game (I always am) and enjoy card game elements, I strongly suggest you try this game.

EDIT: New Update has changed game so my review may be a bit inaccurate until I replay and can re-evaluate.

More games like this and "Early Access" will be definetely synonym for "scam".
They are actually selling you a demo for 5€. And a short one too.
You can complete the four (4!!!) stages of this "game" in 30 min or so and after that there's really nothin' more to do.
No multiplayer. No practice. Not even a ♥♥♥♥ing tutorial.
So the only real question is: "do you really wanna pay for a demo?"
