Always Standing In The Dungeon At Parties

News reaches us that Dungeon Party has released some new screenshots. Which is a surprise. Not because they released new screenshots – people do that all the time. But that there was a game called Dungeon Party at all, as somehow we’d missed it. Man! It’s from Cyanide – currently working on Chaos League 2 Blood Bowl and is a comedy, competitive action-MMO. Which is also Free. From watching the trailers and reading between the line, it appears to be a cross between Gauntlet and Capture the Flag with a fairly cute comedy wrapper. Oh – and it’s out early next year, apparently. And here’s that first trailer we somehow missed…

Actually, this could be fun. I’m also thinking Dynablaster/Bomberman and Spy Versus Spy by looking at the game in the action. And there’s certainly enough of these free games from mainstream developers to be called a trend now. Quickly! Someone pitch an article at Edge.

    Games that have the nerve to use checkerboard floors to such an extent is likely worth checking out.

    How exactly is “Two teams of up to 5 players … over one or more rounds” a MMOG? Perhaps I’m missing something, but that just sounds like, well, a MOG.

    It’s… lo-fi Team Dungeon 2? I am intrigued.
