About This Game

Grotesque Tactics 2: Dungeons & Donuts is the successor to the celebrated RPG-parody Grotesque Tactics. Experience an ironic story-driven RPG with humorous dialogue-puzzles in the style of Monkey Island as well as a strategic combat system, where your party members are controlled simultaneously.

Our story starts as the citizens of the Kingdom of Glory celebrate their victory over the Dark Church. While in the catacombs of their former enemies, their revelry is disturbed by a sudden all-encompassing fog. The citizens wrapped by the fog disappear screaming into nothing. Those that remain alive after the strange attack, barricade themselves in the depths of the catacombs. As time passes, food becomes scarce and the people of the Kingdom of Glory begin to realize that they might all meet their demise. The ‘heroic’ Knights of Glory, shady mercenaries and the arrogant high elves band together into guilds in order to survive and escape the dank catacombs. Unfortunately, the guilds are far too concerned with their distaste for each other and are oblivious to the awakening of dark forces in the dungeons below…

Key features:

  • Experience the thrilling, deadly and sometimes humorous turn-based combat.
  • Join up with comrades-in-arms and create your own guild to help defeat the mighty bosses.
  • Play babysitter as you alleviate conflict amongst your party, so they attack the enemy and not each other.
  • Each guild member has a talent tree to improve and specialize their skills after your advancements.
  • You can choose from three different factions; the High Elves, the Mercenary Guild or the Kingdom of Glory.
  • Each faction has an alternate ending depending on decisions made in the game.
  • The story pokes fun at the RPG genre and popular games, such as Oblivion, Gothic and LOTR.
  • Become a successful Guild Master by collecting gold and improving your reputation.
  • Food is rare and has become the new currency - collect food, learn to cook and woo survivors to your side with delicious meals such as hippie grub, spider salami, or the zombie cocktail!
  • Different levels of difficulty make sure that both beginners and experts will enjoy the game.

I really enjoy this one more than the first Grotesque Tactcis game! Better graphics, cool voices for the characters(i really like Daecon) was a nice combination of a turn-base rpg game with a "weird" for someone sense of humor. Surely recommend it, especially if you like the first one

I really liked the first game of this title but not this one, it was bugged to hell and barely worked. I had a horrid experience trying to play it. Shortly into it I game up.

Such a shame because the first was fun

Ah Grotesque series... What can i say. So many bugs and cheap humor all of them has but somehow the first game was a big favorite of mine after playing it a bit more. Second game in the series has voiceover and better graphics but generally the same clunky graphics engine and nasty camera that require some setup to be more bearable. The whole works.

So did i mention the game is buggy? terrible humour? So many bad things... But somehow it just works. Or doesn't. This game is definitely not for everyone. The anti-hero emo...sorry. 'goth' guy who is always out of luck and has more blue balls than Link with Zelda. And lets not forget his entourage of more or less unstable people that is the bread and butter of this game. Many dumb and hilarious moments in the game when team members comment on things they encounter. Weird characters. ex. Angelina with her angel wings and pink dresses and moments of rage are just legendary. And Holy Avatar with his maidens. Annoying characters no doubt but as the same people are seen in many games it just puts a smile on your face to see all the same dumb things repeat themselves. Repeat a clichee and it becomes funny.

And then there is combat and adventure too. But that is a weaker part. This is also the part that people mostly judge the game on. Perhaps that is good for them but i choose to judge this by the avkward hilarity of it. This game would be just so worth nothing without the characters that flesh it out. For me the long combat stretches in dungeons are a pain as i just want to see what weird happens next. And things do happen and for that i like this game. Combat itself is bearable - especially after you learn some talents but as pointed out the early game is just terrible. A big weakness to this type of game. Overcome that and you got a pretty decent game in front of you.
