March 14

Development of Version 1.2 is underway!

It actually has been for a little while now, but things have been busy!

I'll show previews of the new dungeon skin as soon as possible. It's a TOTALLY unique look, and it's proving difficult, but it will be worth the wait. I hope to launch this update in April, but will keep you all posted! It will accompany a full soft relaunch for press visibility, so it has to be perfect; but I will continue to do my best to get it into your hands in a timely manner.

This update should come with Extra Episode 1- this episode is coming along well, and features some new puzzle and gameplay dynamics, so I hope you look forward to something a little different. The core experience will be unchanged, so if that's a worry, don't!

In other news, Bug Attack! will be receiving it's full Steam release very soon, possibly showing up in the store for wishlisting within the next few days! Have you found the playable Bug Attack! arcade cab in The Bounty yet? If you haven't, keep looking!

I hope you're all doing well, and wish you happy scorechasing and adventuring.

About This Game


The Bounty blends gameplay styles from traditional JRPGs, Roguelikes, and puzzle games, while adding a deep score system to drive the experience further. Players explore top-down levels full of monsters, hazards, secrets, and treasures. Battles are kept simple with and ebb and flow, resembling the traditional style of Dragon Quest. Your character's attributes level up the way you choose; coupled with balanced gear options, you get an equally challenging, balanced experience while playing your character your way.


In the Story Mode, the player selects their difficulty level, names their character (including secret avatars via codes), and begins their journey through a concise adventure across four episodes. Some levels, treasures, riddles, and monsters are shuffled in each playthrough. This adds variety while retaining the experience of learning the game and maps.

In Casual Mode, the score system is disabled, and the player gains the ability to save freely, including an autosave feature. This mode lets the player enjoy the game at their own pace, and practice to score higher in Competitive Mode.
Competitive Mode is the more difficult primary game mode, with each monster, puzzle, treasure, and secret awarding points. With hundreds of scenarios, secrets, and bonuses, players have a virtually endless challenge awaiting them to get the highest score. Furthermore, completing the game opens Endless Dungeon +, allowing the player to play in the Endless Dungeon with their existing character, pushing their score to never-ending heights.


The Endless Dungeon is also selectable as a separate mode. In this mode, players begin with a full loadout of gear and journey through a never-ending, always-changing dungeon. This is the perfect mode to play when you want to get in a quick game but you're short on time!
Also features Endless Dungeon +, which when playing on Competitive Mode, allows you to enter an endless dungeon after completing the main game, giving endless challenges and opportunities to blast your scores into the stratosphere.
