Dicey Dungeons planning big updates, ports, and expanded mod support

Some big updates, ports to new platforms, and expanded mod support are coming to Dicey Dungeons, lead developer Terry Cavanagh has announced, laying out his plans for the deckbuilding roguelike's future. Our Brendy said the game was quite good in our Dicey Dungeons review when it launched three months ago, not just because you can power through episodes as furry bearlike dice, and the devs…

Dicey Dungeons scares up new challenges and monsters for a Halloween update

As I was lurching around my neighbourhood, dressed like a scary poll tax collector, I banged on a door and readied myself for my traditional Halloween scare-a-thon. To my surprise, it was Terry Cavanagh’s mansion. He gave me a hearty laugh and tipped a new Halloween-themed Dicey Dungeons update into my plastic pumpkin. His cute deckbuilding roguelike is now 100% more Halloweeny for the next…

Dicey Dungeons biggest update yet adds new spells and re-rolls tricky challenges

Dice? Cards? I often feel Terry Cavanagh's quite brilliant little puzzler Dicey Dungeons could've easily been a board game. Thankfully, it's a videogame, meaning balance changes and new challenges don't require sourcing a printer to download pages and pages of errata. All you need to get a hold of today's 1.5 update, the "biggest since launch", is a couple of minutes of internet access, and…

Feature: Loaded questions

Terry Cavanagh on why he believes Dicey Dungeons is his best game yet

Terry Cavanagh is known for making difficult games, including the likes of Super Hexagon and VVVVVV, two tough-as-nails gauntlets that challenge digital dexterity and reaction speeds. They're crucibles where the sting of failure is treated by the balm of an instant restart. They're not, notably, deckbuilding roguelikes that revolve around dice manipulation. That would describe Dicey Dungeons, Cavangh's latest and (according to him) greatest game.…

Feature: Prepare to die

Dicey Dungeons review

There is a happy Saturday morning feel to Dicey Dungeons. It's as if you’re munching on Coco Pops and watching cartoons, as you fiddle with some toy dice that came free in the cereal box. This is a sorta-deckbuilding game about being transformed into a walking, talking dice and battling creatures on a rigged game show for a chance to "SPIN THE WHEEL" (the wheel…

Dice-roll deckbuilder Dicey Dungeons tumbles out on August 13th

It's normal to have a little dice-rolling in a game. Putting them in the hero's chair, not so much. Dice are normally the silent judge, deciding clutch victory from horrific failure on a whim. They're what separate mission success from a pile of dead XCOM squaddies. Maybe it's time to put those bones through the wringer themselves. See how they like it. Dicey Dungeons is…

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Chipzel and Cavanagh team up again in the latest Dicey Dungeons update

'Dice equipment management' might not be a phrase that ignites your passion for turn-based roguelikes, but it does accurately describe Terry Cavanagh's latest game. Don't be fooled though: Dicey Dungeons is still in alpha, but it's already a blast. Update 0.11 landed last night, introducing new art from Marlowe Dobbe and new music from Chipzel. You might remember Chipzel from Super Hexagon, a previous game…

Terry Cavanagh’s next game is Dicey Dungeons, and it’s delicious

There's a temptation to look at games with dice in them and go 'EW! Randomness!'. I'm aware of that because it's sometimes my instinctive reaction, even though I know better: dice can be a fantastic driver for Interesting Decisions, and Terry Cavanagh's latest project proves it. He's been working on Dicey Dungeons for the past 3 months, though it was only this week that he…

Type stuff and see what happens in Constellation

Forget 'God Games', because Super Hexagon creator Terry Cavanagh has come up with something that that shows you what it's really like to be a deity. Constellation is a free game with a five word premise: type stuff, see what happens. You can run it in your browser, and while it's designed to be played at events I've been having fun poking at it on…

The islander robots of State Machine prep for doomsday

When I came in to work today John was bright red with an incommunicable rage. It can only mean one thing: a new game about programming is coming out. This one is called State Machine [official site] and it’s from Terry Cavanagh of VVVVVV and Ruari O’Sullivan, aka randomnine, of Fear Is Vigilance and Beacon. Luckily, I quite like programmey games, so I calmly slipped…

Grab Them By The Eyes: Signs From Terry Cavanagh

This morning I have been enjoying Grab Them By The Eyes [official site] - a game by Terry Cavanagh about the cut-throat business of selling burgers on street corners. But it's not about who has the best burgers - that would be ridiculous. It's about who has the best burger signage and thus you must compete with your rival street corner businessmen to buy messages,…

Have You Played… VVVVVV?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. VVVVVV is about you and the challenge in front of you. Are you fast enough with your left-right maneuvering to dodge spikes as you fall upwards into the sky? Are you skilled enough to reverse gravity the second your feet touch the ceiling,…

Moving Stories Tells Tales Through Your Suitcase

Moving Stories by Terry Cavanagh (him off Super Hexagon and VVVVVV) and Stephen Lavelle (Puzzlescript, English Country Tune) is a satisfying little snack of a game I've been prodding at for about 20 minutes. The idea is you're moving house and only have a limited amount of space in your suitcase so you must choose the things you wish to take with you. Once the…

A Free Spike Joint: VVVVVV – Make And Play Edition

The noisE3 is dying down and we're returning to some semblance of normality. That means I might actually find time to play some games on this here computer rather than watching hundreds of trailers and livestreams about games that I probably won't dabble with even when they are released in December 2015. It also means I can take a moment out of my day to…

Flap, Jacked – Terry Cavanagh’s Maverick Bird

No, Christ, don't look to me for an impassioned editorial about Flappy Bird. There's already an Encyclopaedia Brittania's worth of analytics-chasing bullshit* about this now-withdrawn mobile game and its overly-scrutinised creator out there already, as SEO-crazed news sites strain to capitalise on interest in a from-nowhere breakout hit. The trafficks! The precious trafficks! Worse, when concrete news ground to a halt, the airwaves filled instead…

The Entire World Is A Lie In VVVVVV Creator’s Naya’s Quest

Naya's Quest, the latest from VVVVVV and Super Hexagon creator Terry Cavanagh, is an incredibly stressful game. You know that whole relationship you have with your eyes where they by and large tell you the visual truth of a situation? That thing your entire basis of reality is more or less founded upon? Yeah, well, forget about that. You play as a girl (presumably named Naya,…

Feature: The (Indie) Stars Align

Experiment 12 review

Terry Cavanagh. Jasper Byrne. Ian Snyder. Jack King-Spooner. Richard Perrin. Zaratustra. Michael Brough. Robert Yang. Alan Hazelden. Benn Powell. Jake Clover. TheBlackMask. You have probably played games by all of these people. VVVVVV might ring a bell. Maybe Lone Survivor or Kairo. Or, if you're really, really cool, Blues For Mittavinda. Etc, etc, etc. You get the idea. But now they've all congealed into a…
