What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“It's great for me as a solo indie developer as I can get feedback from you, the players, which will help me shape and refine the game throughout development. Dungeon Deathball is a perfect fit for Early Access too since it's designed to be replayed repeatedly with its random run structure, so I hope that you'll get a lot of enjoyment out of it even if you've already put in hours and hours before the full release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This game is on track for a full release in Summer 2021.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The design of the core mechanics and structure is mostly finished and I'm happy with where it is. Now I want to layer in more complexity and more variation. Some features I'd like to add: more enemy types, hazards and traps, a Daily Challenge mode, more rewards (items, skills and more ways to upgrade your characters). There's not much in the way of narrative, tutorials, achievements or unlocks yet, but I intend to add these towards the end of development. UPDATE: Most of this stuff has been added now!

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is nearing completion and contains almost all of the planned features. The next few months will involve final stages of polish, bug fixing and balancing.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price has gradually increased during Early Access, and now represents the intended full release price.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“I thrive on feedback - it's my primary reason for bringing Dungeon Deathball to Early Access - so I'd love to hear your thoughts on the state of the game during development. If you have any suggestions, requests, questions or criticisms then please share them in the Discussions or on my Discord. I want to know what you think!”

“Dungeon Deathball manages to deliver an intense, unforgiving experience while also keeping things accessible and balanced. It’s also exceptionally good fun.”

“The concept may seem simple, but the game definitely isn’t, and that results in a tight but rewarding gameplay loop.”

About This Game

💀🏀💀 Dungeon Deathball is a turn-based, tactical death-sport where you desperately try to score touchdowns, outsmart savage beasts and survive a randomly-generated gauntlet of blood, guts and goals!

🏆 Lead your team of captives to freedom!

They've been confined for as long as they can remember. Now their only chance of freedom is to survive a series of barbaric trials for the entertainment of bloodthirsty hordes. Face off against a variety of fearsome monsters who each pose unique tactical threats to your fragile human bodies.

Key Features

👹 Turn Enemies Against Each Other
Each monster reveals its plans before the next turn. Exploiting this information is key to survival. Outsmart your opponents, avoid their attacks before they happen, or even turn them against each other to gain the upper hand.​
