Gambrinous announced at the Guerilla Collective digital games festival it will be launching a major remaster for Guild of Dungeoneering later this year. The game is intended to come to both PC and mobile platforms.
Guild of Dungeoneering Ultimate Edition is a major remaster that packages together new quests, monsters, classes, weapons and loot, as well as all of the game’s original DLC.
If you don’t know what it is, Guild of Dungeoneering is a turn-based dungeon crawler that features a twist where you don’t control the hero but instead build the dungeon around them. It uses a cards system to give you the right tools to do this, allowing you to place down rooms, traps, monsters and loot.
Essentially, you feel like a Dungeon Master creating a world for another player to adventure in.
It’s all dressed up in a nostalgic tabletop RPG art style with pen & paper features, inspired by the classic games the devs played (and made) as children.
“Starting as a game jam entry in 2013, it’s a miracle the original Guild of Dungeoneering is as good as it is,” says Colm Larkin from Gambrinous. “Ultimate Edition is our chance to delve back into the dungeon - armed with everything we know now - and make the game truly shine. We’ve fully rebuilt Guild of Dungeoneering in a new engine, tweaked and rebalanced every system and then added a whole load of new content to top it off.”
Based in Dublin, Gambrinous is led by Larkin and Fred Mangan. In addition to Guild of Dungeoneering, the studio makes other games that utilise the wonder of tabletop and board games such as Cardpocalypse.
Guild of Dungeoneering Ultimate Edition will be available on iOS, Android and PC later this year.Check out some of our favourite Android RPGs if you're after a new one to play.
