Organic Matters (free) and Rescue Team (€1,99), detailed below, are now available!


The prison hulk “Success” has mysteriously crashed. Uncharted part of the galaxy? Unknown planet? When everything goes awry, who you gonna call? The Rescue Team!
Meet Sasha, Zugma and Wes, the funky heroes assigned to the "Success" mission. Failure is obviously not an option.

This new exciting content pack available for €1,99 on Steam.


[ADDITIONS] Rescue Team

  • Added 3 new Heroes, with a really refreshing gameplay:
    • Wes Davoun, the radio operator:
      • He's a very good operator and one of the best support characters of the game. Thanks to his radio skills he can buff all heroes on the floor.
      • Special Transmission (passive skill): operating a resource module raised to an art form. Depending on which resource module you are operating, it will provide a different buff to all heroes on the floor:
        • When operating a Food module, provides health regeneration to all heroes on the floor.
        • When operating an Industry module, provides attack power to all heroes on the floor.
        • When operating a Science module, provides attack power to all minor modules on the floor.
      • Good Morning Auriga (active skill): movement speed buff for all heroes on the floor. When the whole team has to rock and roll!
      • Urgent Call (active skill): make an urgent phone call to change what will happen in the next room you’ll open, and force a positive event to happen. When you want anything but trouble behind the next door.
    • Zugma Walker, the bulldozer operator:
      • Zugma, driving her bulldozer, is the first übermassivetanky operator!
      • Recycling Beast (active skill): transform every monster killed into a random resource (except Dust). Not everybody can turn roadkill into resources!
      • Steamroller (passive skill): reduces the movement speed penalty when carrying the Crystal. Zugma Walker is a very slow character but when she's carrying the Crystal she becomes one of the fastest characters in the game.
      • Secret Compartment (passive skill): she can keep a part of the Dust from a floor to another. That little place where cops and customs officers never look.
    • Sasha Chokyo, the trainer:
      • With Sasha you gotta grab’em all! Indeed, you can train any monsters of the game! When you’ve got a monster as a pet, it can deal damage to other monsters. Moreover, it can even level up by killing other monsters! Take care of your pet by feeding them Food.
      • Heel! (active skill): tames the most powerful monster in the room. An order even monsters will obey.
      • Table Scraps (passive skill): share a part of your Food when healing Sasha with the tamed monster. One way to keep your pet healthy.
      • Attack Dawg (passive skill): share a part of the hero’s attack power with the trained monster. Your pet is every bit as vicious as you are.
  • Added 2 new Hurnas monsters, from the Endless Legend’s universe:
    • The Hunter: always stalking the weakest hero of your group, it’s an archer that attacks slowly but deals heavy damages. Take care of your operators!
    • The Warden: a crazy spinning zone damage dealer. Don’t keep all your heroes in one place, or lower your head to dodge his club!
  • Added 1 new Major Module, the Field Medic:
    • It reduces healing costs on the floor,
    • It increases heroes and NPC’s defence on the floor.
  • Added 4 new items:
    • Heavy Engine: provides attack power, reduces movement speed and grants the Steamroller passive skill.
    • Secret Pocket: provides defence and gives the Secret Compartment passive skill.
    • Rescue Kit: provides attack power, wit and health regeneration.
    • Training Kit: provides attack power, and gives the ability to operate.

[ADDITIONS] All versions – G2G content

  • Added a new spaceship, the Organic Pod: [G2G]
    • This pod is an intellectual living creature, so take care of her like a member of your crew. Remember, she likes red wine, boiled shrimp with sauce, classical music and pictures of kittens.
    • Gameplay effects:
      • Creatures are faster.
      • Modules can’t be repaired.
      • Powered rooms:
        • Can’t be unpowered,
        • Deal damage to modules and artefacts at every turn,
        • Reduce monsters’ defence by 100%,
        • Provide +0.5 Food per turn.
  • Added a new Hero, Rosetta QV1819: [G2G]
    • Egocentric passive gameplay: attack power and defence bonus per mob in the room, so bring it!
    • Tower of Babble (active skill): within a limited period of time, all monsters with less than 25% health points explode instantly dealing zone damages to all the surrounding monsters. An uninterrupted flow of multi-syllabic words would confuse even the most enraged enemy.
  • Added 3 new monsters, the Vultus: these 3 new monsters are quite insignificant damages dealers, but they are nasty gameplay breakers!
    • Trash: they spread into the dungeon and slow minor modules’ attack speed.
    • Debuffer: slows a hero’s attack and movement speed.
    • Vultu: it has a chance to spawn in a random unpowered room at the beginning of a turn. Kill it before it vanishes at the end of the timer and you’ll be rewarded with a Dust loot. So hurry up! [G2G]
  • Added 2 new minor modules:
    • Biomass Factory: a minor module that converts dead monsters into Industry.
    • Biomass Cannery: a minor module that converts dead monsters into Food.
  • Added 8 new items from the Endless Legend universe:
    • Executive's Armband: % odds to trouble the targeted monster.
    • Cheater's Armband: % odds to poison the targeted monster.
    • Antigrav Trinket: boosts the movement speed but lowers defence, useful for Crystal carrying.
    • Self-Help Buds: boosts wit, defence and attack power.
    • Shanty Singer: boosts defence of all heroes in the room.
    • Brainwave Bracers: boosts health regeneration depending on number of mobs in the room.
    • Fred's Fixer: adds wit, boosts repair speed.
    • Drug-o-matic: boosts health regeneration and defence.
  • Added controller support
  • Added a new ending sequence

  • Fixed several desynchronisation issues: the multiplayer mode should now be more stable
  • Fixed a bug that occurred upon finding a new item: the inventory now properly opens if you click on the notification
  • Fixed an issue with the visual effects on monsters or heroes, which are now hidden when the room is affected by the EMP event
  • The Keeper can now attack unrecruited heroes
  • The game is now paused when opening the Album by clicking on a notification
  • Fixed the tactical map main background animation
  • Fixed an issue with the item “Time of Sands” which was duplicated in some situations after loading a multiplayer save
  • Removed the merchant’s health regeneration

  • The Crystal is now displayed on the tactical view while it’s carried by a hero
  • The option menu can now be closed using the Escape key
  • Fixed several animations on heroes and monsters
  • Fixed an issue with DX9 and the lighting system making rooms very dark despite powering them

Have fun!

Hello, Dungeon explorers!

AmpliMath announced it two weeks ago, we showcased it last week during our livestream, now is time to delve a little more into the content brought by the Organic Matters update, available on November 24th for PC! This content is the result of G2G votes from the last few months.


The new Organic pod expands and takes hold in rooms as they are powered. As a result, rooms cannot be unpowered. Due to its living nature, it slowly damages (digests?) modules built into powered rooms. However, it also generates food per each powered room, as well as reduces drastically mob defense in these rooms. Give it a try and tell us what you think!


Meet QV1819, also known as Rosetta, diplomatic robot on a mission. This adorable little critter seems weak at first, but hides a potential only unlocked when facing large groups of monsters.


These bad boys are actually quite harmless... until they're surrounded by other monsters. The smaller Vultu keeps modules busy without attacking. The larger one leeches stats off of your Heroes, and the largest, staying only temporarily before exploding, gives dust upon being destroyed... but you have to be quick about it! We expect these monsters to spice up your encounters quite a bit.


To keep in line with the living matter theme of the update, we're adding two minor modules that recycle destroyed enemies into industry and food!
We're proud of announcing that the game now supports Gamepad input! A standard X360 controller will do the trick, but fancier controllers should work too!
Finally, the game is now offering a long-awaited ending sequence, that ties in with the end screen. No more details on this, you'll have to exit the dungeon to see it!

That's all for today. Stay tuned for more on Dungeon of the Endless - Rescue Team!

Perhaps Amplitude’s award-winning strategy game really is> endless. A large free update for Endless Legend [official site] is due to land sometime today and there will be two cash-money chunks of DLC arriving alongside. The free stuff comes under the heading Forges of Creation and brings AI improvements, new modding tools, including compatibility with free map editor Tiled and the ability to reskin 3D units. There will also be Steam Workshop integration. The two purchasable packs contain new music, items and minor faction quests. More details below.

A few months ago Amplitude announced Endless Space 2, but that doesn't mean the developers there (the "Amplidudes and Amplidudettes") aren't working on anything else. In fact, both Endless Legend and Dungeon of the Endless are due to receive updates later this month.

First, on November 19 (this Thursday), Endless Legend will get a free update the team is calling "Forges of Creation", which—as the name suggests—is related to modding. While modding is already available, this update connects it to the Steam Workshop and makes further improvements: "for example by adding compatibility to a popular Map Editor (bring forth your favorite fantasy worlds to Endless Legend!) or the ability to reskin 3D units". The update also makes improvements to the AI, which will carry forward to Amplitude's other games in future.

That's all free, but they'll also release a paid-for content pack called The Lost Tales that includes 20 quests related to Minor Factions. There's also Echoes of Auriga, a pack of seven musical tracks composed by FlyByNo, along with some related items such as the "Harp of Noby Fly".

On November 24, Dungeon of the Endless will also get a free update called "Organic Matters", which contains content that was conceptualised by players in competitions. It includes the Organic Spaceship, three new monsters, a new Rosetta hero, new minor modules, a new ending sequence, and a gamepad interface.

Dungeon of the Endless will also get a mini content pack called The Rescue Team that adds three Rescue Team heroes with "very unique skills", two new monsters, and a new major module. If you want to find out more, Amplitude will talk about the updates on Twitch on this Thursday November 19.

Hi all,

The Paris Games Week is taking a lot of our time at the moment (if you're in Paris, come say hi to us at the Jeux Made in France booth in Hall 2.1), but we've been working on some pretty cool things for you. :) Indeed, an exciting Dungeon of the Endless update is now available!

You can download it for free here:


This Death Gamble update adds:
  • A new merchant will appear in the dungeon: the Death merchant, also known as The Dood. It will offer players a very special deal during the week of Halloween, and will appear less often the rest of the time. Unknown items will be available for fixed price as well!

  • A new item will be available thanks to the Death merchant: Time of Sands. It can resuscitate the player who is carrying it, which could be quite useful! Also note that the longer your character carries that item, the more HP they are likely to spawn with.

  • Added a new event, The Dood, a very special merchant with a very special item…
  • Optimised AI’s mobs that will slightly improved performance
  • Fixed the Rocket Scientist achievement
  • In multiplayer mode, heroes can no longer be transferred during the action phase
  • Added a visual feedback on skills if you click on them when the cooldown is active
  • The last picture of the album is now unlocked after the last level of the game
  • Pat can now hit several monsters at his highest level


Just so you know, we have been working on a very cool free update that is due next month! It will include the content that you have created and vote for through the GAMES2GETHER: a new organic spaceship, the Vultu mob, the Rosetta hero, and gamepad support amongst other things!

We'll keep you posted.

Meet the aliens.

That rag-tag gang of mercenaries from Team Fortress 2 are at it again, “it” being “appearing in other games made by other people.” This time they’ve popped up in Dungeon of the Endless [official site], the really very good roguelikelike tower defence game by Amplitude Studios.

The free Australium update launched yesterday, adding the TF2 Pyro, Medic, Heavy, and Engineer to Dungeon’s lineup of playable characters. But wait, there’s more! It also added five new TF2-y items. The game’s on sale too.

The other day, I found myself fondly remembering that strange period where a game's pre-order bonuses consisted mostly of Team Fortress 2 hats. Instead of exclusive missions or trinkets, players were instead treated to virtual headwear for another developer's game. It was fun extra, and not one that would overly penalise those who—entirely sensibly—thought that pre-ordering was for chumps.

Alas, those days are seemingly over. But Team Fortress 2 hasn't entirely left the collective consciousness of PC gaming at large. Consider this: the Australium update that's now live in Dungeon of the Endless.

The Australium update adds a variety of TF2-based accoutrement to Amplitude's roguelike tower-defence game. For starters, there are four new Heroes: the Pyro, Medic, Engineer and Heavy. And for seconds? Five new passive items, including a Tower of Hats, Gas Mask, Dove, jPad and Sandvich.

This is all a result of DotE's recent Steam free weekend, and Amplitude's successful community challenge to get people playing their games.

Dungeon of the Endless is an extremely tactical (and particularly challenging) dungeon crawler. It combines team management with exploration and the building and upgrading of towers. For more details, check out our review.

Thanks, PCGamesN.
