About 18 months ago, I backed the Random Dungeon Generator as a Dungeon Poster on Kickstarter. The poster itself was completed and delivered promptly, and now hangs proudly on my wall. Since the poster, and Paul’s DM Notebook, were my primary interests in backing the campaign, I didn’t pay much attention to the continued updates about the other backer rewards Paul was working on. I had a vague notion that he produced a game which used the poster as a board, called “Dungeon Robber,” but I didn’t think much of it.
A few weeks back when I received a new update on the project, I read it out of curiosity. What could possibly be new with a kickstarter that ended so long ago? Turns out, Paul had created a browser-based version of the Dungeon Robber game. Since it’s much easier to pick up and play a browser game than it is to learn a board game, I decided to give it a whirl.
Vecna’s balls, people! Dungeon Robber has got to be one of the best dungeon crawling video games I’ve ever played. It’s fast paced, highly lethal, and addictive. Don’t check it out if you’ve got work to do, because it’s browser-based crack.
