Updates and Expansions
I now have the finished storyline for the first expansion. The expansion will feature more NPCs that take an active role in the storyline. Instead of just cutting through hordes of enemies, there will be plenty of individuals that would rather talk than kill the player. There will also be a couple of side quest areas that feature randomly generated puzzle levels. Much like Nethack, there will be some special artifacts that drop in these areas that will help the player out. Though, if the player isn't interested in the puzzles, then they can be skipped.
Micha (the artist) will be on holiday next month, so I likely won't be able to release the expansion until September. I am currently implementing the entire expansion without the extra textures and creature images though. I'll just need to wait until the art content is available to release it.
In the meantime, I should have all the dungeon enhancements done soon. I'll try to get some of the sub quest branches in for the current dungeon levels. Hopefully this tides everyone over until the expansion is released. The expansion will add a great deal to the game. Right now, it looks to increase the size of the game by 3x.
New Features coming to Deadly Dungeons
The Android RPG, Deadly Dungeons was released nearly a month ago, and the title has seen a great deal of success in the Android Marketplace and other Android markets. Work has begun on a new expansion that is slated for release in July. This expansion will feature a town that will be used as a central hub for quests and accessing other dungeons. Also new to the release will be more varied environments including outdoor areas, flooded levels, and other worldly planes.
Enhancements to the current campaign will also be added monthly. Planned features include journals and tomes that provide more backstory to the game, 3 different game modes, more enhancements to the main menus, changes to the loot system to be more gold-based, locked doors, traps, pick axes that can be used to dig through walls, and branches off of the main dungeon which feature quests and puzzles.
Deadly Dungeons Released
Deadly Dungeons has been released to the Android Marketplace! I will also be adding the game to several other marketplaces and will also sell a version from this website. I would like to thank everyone who tested Deadly Dungeons. The game would not be as good as it is now without the feedback I received.
