Dungeonland Gets Infinite Dungeon, Free Goodies

Paradox's Dungeonland might have some quirks, bugs, and a giant happiness-slurping maw where a functional single-player mode should be, but it's a fine time on the whole. The arcade-y,¬†asymmetrical ARPG even manages to be quite a stern test of swords and smarts - at least, for as long as it lasts. On the upside, developer Critical Studio's been packing its overwhelmingly purple loot pinata with…

Critical Paradox: Critical Explain Dungeonland

With Dungeonland having recently appeared in the gold-filled crypts of the internet, to a mixed critical reception, we thought we should catch up with developers Critical Studio, and see how they'd been getting on. This is their first game, so what had they learned? My questions were answered jointly by Mark Venturelli and Gabriel Texeira. There's a few new videos down there, too.

You Must Be This Existent To Ride The Dungeonland

Are you real? For clarity's sake, I'm talking complete authenticity, here. Flesh, blood, bones, an un-cleavable tether to this plane of existence - all the necessary basics.

I got a chance to go hands-on with Paradox's Dungeonland some many firework-and-goblin-giblet-obscured moons ago, and I actually had quite a time with it. That said, I don't think it's made its way onto many radars, and that's a shame. No, it didn't strike me as particularly earth-shaking, but playing as the dungeon master (or maestro, as he's now being called) against a hapless group…

Clicky Mouse: Dungeonland Livestream Highlights

Did you miss the livestream of Dungeonland, the multiplayer fantasy theme park game with lashings of murder and (probably) lashings? There's no need to create paradoxical quandaries by travelling back in time using the modified toaster in your basement because Paradox were clever enough to record the whole thing. They even spliced a highlights package together because they know your time is precious. That's why…

Step Right Up: Dungeonland Beta Signups

Unlike intrepid magely adventurer Craig Pearson, I haven't played Dungeonland but when Paradox publish a fantasy-themed game in which players co-operate and die pathetically and hilariously, I reserve the right to compare that game to Magicka. Of course, I also reserve the right to say it doesn't actually sound all that similar to that particular four-player farce, with an emphasis on unique class abilities rather…
