Legend Of Dungeon Randomizing Everything – Even Music

By Nathan Grayson on March 12th, 2013.

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.
