"The perfect introduction to the classic style of Roguelikes. A humourous but unforgiving adventure into rooms of brutal monsters."

About This 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?

DoD is a classic dungeon crawler which is insanely difficult. The art style takes some getting used to, but is really funny at times. Even though the game is relatively simple, it captured my attention for hundreds of hours, which should be recommandation enough. But I have to admit that it gets a bit repetitive.

If this game were a food it would be a cheese, because of its longevity and the amount of cheeses.

This game.... The nerd jokes hidden around the place were enough to make me grin continuously despite being killed almost every time I found some cool loot. But hey, that's one of my favorite parts of the game! Starting again and wondering "will I ever find that hat again?" I love the randomization of the dungeons, plus with the workshop there are now literally endless possibilities. One of the best purchases I've made all year.

A jovial, lighthearted rougelike that's fun to play in small doses

Fun traditional roguelike. If you want a straight-up dungeon crawling rogue experience with decent graphics, this game isn't a bad choice.

Absolutely love the game but so freakin unstable that in all the hours ive put into it ive never beaten it. I know the game backwards and forwards and yet everytime I get some momentum going it crashes, deletes my character and/or saves and im left with nothing but smoldering rage slowly eroding my psyche.

I want to recommend this game, as it's a really nice roguelike for people that don't want to deal with the more nuanced classical roguelikes, but it requires constant saving due to crashes.

And it can crash while saving.

Further, the game seems to corrupt through play, so things you use will arbitrarily stop working.

This game is so very addictive. You every want to kill a couple hours? Throw on a good movie and start playing a round of this game. You can take it in a million different directions depending on your playstyle and you then have to adjust it to adapt to the items you find. Not to mention it has a wonderful sense of humour. I happened to get it in a Humble Bundle and it was one of the best steals ever. Just go for it, if you're into rouge dungeons than you won't regret it.

Its charming graphics and humor are overshadowed by its obtuseness.

It's cute and charming, but rather shallow. There are so many better quality rogue-likes out there. This one has better graphics than most, but they're not that great. The only thing it has going better than most is the crafting system. Other than that, everything seems a poor imitation of real rogue-likes. If you are new to the rogue-like genre, this could be for you. But for experience players who like a little more depth, this doesn't cut it.

I was introduced to this game by my brother last month. Wow, insta-hooked.
I love the modern twist on a rogue-like, I used to play a lot of ADOM.
Now trying to collect achievements and building a skillset to take on Dredmor.

Very much recommended, very amusing too.
