Neverdaunt Creator Teases Legend of Dungeon

By Jim Rossignol on November 16th, 2012 at 3:00 pm.


Robot Loves Kitty, whose back catalogue includes weirdo pseudo-MMO Neverdaunt and minimalist platformer Tiny Plumbers, is now working on Legend Of Dungeon. This is apparently a “4 Player Co-op Rogue-Like-like Beat’em’up with Dynamic Lighting on AWESOME Pixel Art.” Yes, I’ll let that description sink in for a moment, as tiny excitement-enzymes burst from your brain-tubes.

And yes, it’s using 3D clever lighting visuals with pixel art. Sounds impossible, I know. But it looks great. Watch the trailer, below.

    Wierd, I was just looking at a 2D engine I was thinking of using that generates lighting similar to that using normal maps, I quite like the effect myself

  2. Tacroy says:

    Hee hee hee, I recognize like all those sound effects from Neverdaunt.

  3. Jesse L says:

    Oh my goodness, it’s gorgeous.

  4. Totally heterosexual says:

    That looks fucking awesome.

  5. Randomer says:

    Look at how smoothly all the animations flow! Beautiful! Quite excited about this, particularly the “co-op rogue-like” bit.

    After two seconds of the voice I was like “Wow man they hired Batman for that trailer?”

      It’s nice to see Dr. Claw got some work after Inspector Gadget went off the air.

  7. JFS says:

    Good LORD does this look sexy.

  8. DrunkDog says:

    Lovely stuff.

    Tickles my nostalgia nodules and harkens back to Entombed – although with alot more devilry.

    This looks genuinely interesting. I hope they consider bringing in some classic roguelike elements into the mix and also, hopefully itemization similar to the original Rogue. Too much level based linear item progression lately for my tastes. Well that’s probably asking too much though.

    Not keen on the co op bit..love to see a game like this for single loner person

    • Caiman says:

      Yes, sadly it went from “WANT” to “what a shame” upon realising that.

  11. apocraphyn says:

    Oh my. I like what I see.

  12. Monkeh says:

    I wants! Looks gorgeous. :)

  13. Skabooga says:

    The textual description just kind of slipped by me, but seeing it in action certainly peaked my interest. Getting chased by a big ogre in the dark as you frantically run towards the exit is my idea of a good time.

  14. The Random One says:

    Is it just me or does everyone on this game look like a skeleton in a top hat?

  15. xaphoo says:

    This is really stunning. I’m amazed nobody has attempted this visual style before.

  16. Frank says:

    Hmm, easy to confuse the developer with the game (robot loves kitty).
