The other day a friend sent me a text message, “If I get the 4 pack of DungeonLand, will you and your other half play?”


This is what Steam says about DungeonLand:

Dungeonland is a co-operative hack and slash game that takes players on a deadly tour through a medieval theme park. Playing as The Rogue, The Warrior or The Mage, the heroes will need to work together as a team to get past the evil overseer of this “Tragic Kingdom” – The Dungeon Maestro.

This game is developed by Critical Studio and published by Paradox Interactive.

I know nothing about Critical Studio, and it looks like DungeonLand is the only thing they’ve put out so far.  However, Paradox Interactive is another story.  You’ll know these guys if you’re a Magicka fan.  They have a few other titles that I’m not really familiar with as well.  But I’ve always enjoyed Magicka so DungeonLands ought to be fun as well.

So, aside from the blurb on steam, this is what I’ve found out about DungeonLand:

– Co-op gameplay.  You have to work together to get through the theme park.

– Competitive multiplayer.  Apparently one person can play as the Dungeon Maestro and beat up your friends.  Not unlike the board game Descent, where one player is the Dungeon Lord and he makes the lives of the heroes miserable.

– Re-playability.  So it’s supposed to randomize monsters, treasures and dangers.  Wonder if they did it better than Blizzard with Diablo.

– 3 classes (rogue, mage, warrior)

So it looks to be a Diablo/Torchlight type hack and slash that is very silly.  Can’t wait! However, first ConceptionUK.
