‘Dicey Dungeons’ set for August launch

/ 06:06 PM July 28, 2019

Irish developer Terry Cavanagh, of tough-as-nails spaceship escapade “VVVVVV” and twitch-reflex challenge “Super Hexagon”, is preparing to release his next big project in August.

“Dicey Dungeons” is all about beating the odds, a task easier said than done for dice on legs.

As a six-sided warrior, witch, thief, robot, jester or inventor, the idea is to get to the end of a dungeon run in order to outdo Lady Luck herself.

Procedural generation means that each dungeon’s layout is different, adding another wrinkle to the unpredictability of playing as a random number generator.


The game has been in active development on Itch.io for over a year, and will be released both there and on the Steam service, in 14 languages including English, German, French and Spanish, traditional and simplified Chinese, Korean, both major Portuguese dialects and Turkish.

“Dicey Dungeons” is debuting across Mac, PC and Linux systems, with past performance suggesting it might land on other platforms as well.

After all, previous hit “VVVVVV” spread to mobile and to Nintendo and PlayStation consoles, even re-releasing on the Nintendo Switch seven years after its first bow. RGA/JB
