Dungeon and Gravestone is a revamped roguelike dungeon crawler by a solo indie dev from Japan

Solo indie developer Kiyoshi Honda has announced the official launch of Dungeon and Gravestone, a roguelike dungeon crawler that's a remastered version of the five-year-old Dungeon of Gravestone. The Japanese indie dev aims to spread the good word about the charming pixel art RPG across the globe, and it's out now on both iOS and Android devices.

In Dungeon and Gravestone, players can expect a revamped system, new graphics and a fresh storyline, five years after the original Dungeon of Gravestone. True to its genre, levels are procedurally generated where no two playthroughs are the same. Players will have to navigate mazes, collect items, score valuable loot and strengthen their equipment to boost their chances of survival.

The towns themselves are also randomly generated, making for a fresh experience with every session. A player's blood level will also be constantly depleting, adding a ticking time bomb to every run. Of course, there are also intriguing puzzles to solve, secrets to uncover and speedruns to beat.
