About the Game

Long ago, the Dark Lord Dredmor was bound in the darkest dungeons beneath the earth by great and mighty heroes. Centuries later, the magical bonds that hold him in place are loosening and his power grows ever stronger. The land cries out for a new hero, a powerful warrior or a mystic wizard like those spoken of in the prophecies of yore.
What they have, unfortunately, is you...
Step into the Dungeons of Dredmor! Embrace your destiny! Face evil of the likes the world has never known - the terrifying Swarmies, the undulating Thrusties, and the adoreable nest-building Diggles. Worship Inconsequentia, the Goddess of Pointless Sidequests, or try your luck as a devotee of the nameless Lutefisk God. Cast powerful magic learned from the dark business warlocks of the school of Necronomiconomics, or summon the Viking Runes of your ancestors to blast your foes with thunder and lightning! Discover the power that can be had by wielding a bizarre armament of devastating weaponry such as the Interdimensional Axe, the Plastic Ring, and the Invisible Shield (if you can remember where you left it). Wield shoes decorated by the Dwarven Glittersmiths, all of whom have now committed suicide because of their shame, and embrace the joys of destroying giant moustache-wielding brick demons with a mace decorated with tawdry, delicious bacon.
While you’re at it, be prepared to die. A lot. In hideous, screaming pain that makes you throw your keyboard out the window.
The Dungeons of Dredmor await. Are you ready for them?

Key features:

  • Classic Roguelike gameplay with the sweet, refreshing taste of point-and-click interfaces. No longer must you press CTRL-ALT-SHIFT-x to drink a potion.
  • Randomly generated dungeons entice you with the sweet, sweet promises of treasure and … things.
  • Old-school pixel goodness. Face lovingly hand-animated monsters and enjoy the great taste of beautiful, individually rendered items on top of a sea of gorgeous, potent tile-work.
  • Wield the awesome power of the Anvil of Krong, lest it wield you!
  • Incredibly complicated crafting system! Wield relics of the Great Elven/Dwarven conflict; grind down ingots to make powdered aluminum and shove it directly up your nostrils!
  • Hordes of monsters never-before-seen in a video game!
  • Deploy cunning traps to defeat your foes!
  • Infinite replay value: choose from a selection of mind-boggling skills to create your character. A new gameplay experience awaits every time!
  • Did we mention there’s lutefisk?

Now that reviews are here, let me review the ♥♥♥♥ out of this game.

Dungeons of Dredmor is, in one word, the-seriously-best-game-ever.

No? Well, maybe I'm overstating. But it's definitely one of the best -if not THE best- Roguelike I've ever played. I will always return to this game. It will constantly captivate me in its shiny roguelike eyes. Maybe it's because every character you make can have a new and exciting build. Maybe it's because no run-through is exactly the same. Maybe it's because there's actual crafting that's better than in some big name MMO's. Maybe it's because your death is always your own damn fault. Or maybe it's because diggles are so cute (but they hate you so much). I don't know, probably all of the above (definitely). I will always love this game and this game will always show me a good time. If you know what I mean. And I think you do.

Negatives? The humor is sometimes a little too much, I think, like every-blooming-thing needed to be funny. Oh, there's funny in there, but sometimes you just want the flavor texts to give it a rest already. Furthermore, I guess the art style turns off some people, not me personally, but I've heard it as a complaint. I can understand that, but my advice would be to ignore it and just try it.

You won't be disappointed.

In 1980 a game called 'Rogue' was born. Since then, a genre known as Rogue-like was born.
A rogue-like game typically features a randomised dungeon, turn based movement and a plethora of skills and items at your disposal. Classic RPG weapons and armor, wizardry and sneaky rogues fighting monsters, all drably illustrated with ASCII graphics.

Dungeons of Dredmor takes all that, slaps on a easy mouse interface, some charming graphics and audio, and chucks on some good humour to boot. This is quite possibly the only game - now and forever - where I can roll a beserker viking pirate communist emo vegan. Monsters will waltz up to me moaning "I wasn't even supposed to be here today". It won't make you laugh until your face falls off, but it'll have you smirking with the occasional "hah!" throughout.


If you're just curious and never tried a rogue-like before, give it a shot. It's a fairly simple game, but with enough hardcore depth to have you reaching for the wiki once you get into it. It also has a range of addons found on the Steam workshop, so there's never an end to the strange setups you can employ and the delightful humour it prizes. It's often on a 75% off sale during holiday periods, and at that price it's well worth a dabble and beyond good value.

Dungeons of Dredmor is a rather by the book implementation of the concepts presented by the nethacks, rogues, and past games of the genre known affectionately as, "rogue-like," you take the genre and pump it full of Internet Memes, Canada and Scandanavia jokes, and then add Diggles... Like a packing plant pumping their meat full of water and a hint of salt.

The game plays well, and is rather thoroughly randomized, the difficulty stems more from your skill choices than from the game's settings, death can be permanent if you wish, and after playing a game or two you may like that extra bit of pressure on you.

The hand drawn animated deaths are nice and the game has a sense of humour about the entire affair, you'd be surprised the variety of ways one can die.

The DLC for the game do flesh it out a bit, and when on sale it's well worth picking up.

This is a solid rogue-like game - one you should give a try.

This game is amazing. 280 hours on record, and counting. There are lots of skills and so much variation it's unreal. And then there's user-created content. A lot of which is balanced and well thought out, showing how much people enjoy the game.

This is one of the best $5 games ever made. The variety is great, the humour is great, and the DLCs are nice add-ons to an already great game.

If you're after the latest 3D graphics, this game isn't for you. But if you can put that aside and appreciate the graphics for what they are, you are in for a treat.

A large part of the game's greatness is due to the character customization. You choose seven skills , which may be related to fighting, magic, roguey stuff, or general skills that are slotted into one of those three categories. Each of those options is actually a skill tree, with multiple skills that you unlock as you level up. You can also do a ton of crafting, or none, as you wish.

This game is all about giving us players the choice to try to win the game however we like, which is why I will keep going back to it again and again.

Dungeons of dredmor is an example of "don't jude a book by its cover". Initially, it looks poorly made, but once you start playing you can find yourself immensed in the game. There are tons of items, craftables and combinations to make. Battle is fluent despite of being turn based, and there are plenty of class and spell combinations to try out. Overall it has a great variety for such a "small" game! A big plus is also the fact that there are several difficulty levels, including a "softcore" mode where dying doesn't mean game over. This makes it equally enjoyable for hardcore roguelike fans as well as more casual players who would like to give the genre a try. Strongly recommended :)
