Hello guys,

It's been a while since the last update.
I'm sharing some of the new features we've been working on the past few months.

1. Item system
As you kill the adventurers, they will now drop valuable items such as jewels and tomes that will empower your arsenal.
You can equip these items and enjoy the powerful passive benefits.
You'll be given slots for your equipments and inventory to store unused items.
Currently, there are six types of equippable items with four rarity tiers (common - uncommon - rare - unique).

In addition to aforementioned equippable items, consumable items will drop.
Consumable items include tokens that give you additional skill/mastery point, tokens that modify maps permanently (e.g. add or remove unit types in a map) or even a map token that opens gateway to procedurally generated dungeons (meaning you will have endless maps to play on).

Past week, I've been working on procedural map generator for Dungeon Warfare 2. There are still some rough edges, but it's working now.
Here are some of the previews of the generated maps.

2. New rune system

Runes will now drop along with the items. We're replacing the old 12 runes with randomly generated runes.
The runes you choose to use in the level will be consumed when you finish the level.
Don't worry yet. You will get plenty of rune drops. In fact, you will run out of inventory space sooner than later.
To keep your inventory from overflowing, we've also made some crafting recipes to consume the runes you don't like to craft new runes.
The runes will spawn with several difficulty mods depending on their rarity. Some of the mods are existing ones in DW1, others are brand new.
The upgraded versions of the old runes will still drop from time to time, along with other unique runes.

That's all for today!
I'll be sharing more stuff as we come up with more exciting stuff.
Thank you very much for your continued support and patience!

Hello guys, first of all, I am sorry to keep you waiting for a long time without any updates.
As a fellow gamer, I know what it feels like to wait for a game release. It's past time I posted an update. When I posted the announcement of Dungeon Warfare 2, I had hoped to release the game in late October. But once it was clear that it was impossible to finish the game in time, I had a major morale hit which had caused further delay.

Right now, we (just two guys) are working in grueling pace to finish up the game. Alas, some of the features are taking longer to implement than we had estimated. We are hoping to release the game within November. I hate to say this, but there is a chance that it will be delayed to December.

I have begun to write new soundtracks for DW2 and last week I managed to write four soundtracks. I am sharing one of the tracks (which is going to be a battle theme) with you.


Dungeon Warfare 2 will have...
  • 60+ maps
  • 12+ new unit types
  • 3+ boss battles
  • 5+ new soundtracks
  • 3 skill trees with 11 skills each
  • 6 new traps
  • a new trap upgrade system that allows you to customize traps (you get to choose one out of three traits per tier)
  • a new rune system that allows you to stack runes and make rune words that add special difficulty modifiers
  • and much more

As always, thank you for playing (and waiting).
And thank you for your patience.
See you soon!

It's been already two years since the early access period.
I can't thank you everyone enough for playing the game. As a game developer, few things are happier than seeing people enjoy the game and hearing positive feedbacks about it.
Thanks to your support, we have decided to make a sequel.
Dungeon Warfare 2 has been in development for some time now, and we're happy to officially announce it today.
We're planning to release the game at around early Q4 2017.
See you in a couple of months!

Here goes some screenshots and gifs of the exciting new things in action!

By popular demand, we have added a new upgrade for Barricade which makes the barricade impervious to damage. Although expensive, it will give players some degree of freedom of permanently shifting the terrain to their advantage.

Also, adjustment have been made to the spawn rate of the 'special' unit types such as dwarves, wizards, and horsemen so that they are no longer included in every single wave in late game. All in all, this will result in decreased difficulty of endless mode. Time to challenge your previous xp records!

Dungeon Warfare 2 is under development. Stay tuned for official announcement sometime next month.

Thank you for playing.

  • Added a new ultimate upgrade for Barricade (Indestructible)
  • Reduced the spawn rate of special unit types in endless mode
