Gambrinous, the Dublin based indie developer, is giving away over 300,000 copies of turn-based dungeon crawler Guild of Dungeoneering Ultimate Edition to everyone who owns the original game on Steam.
When the new game launches on PC this November, all Steam versions of the original Guild of Dungeoneering will be upgraded to the Ultimate Edition free of charge.
Guild of Dungeoneering Ultimate Edition is a completely rebuilt and remastered version of the award-winning indie card battler Guild of Dungeoneering, bringing new quests, monsters, classes, weapons and loot - plus all the original’s DLC - together into one supreme package.
The award-winning original is a turn-based dungeon crawler with a twist - instead of controlling the hero, players build the dungeon around them. Using cards drawn from their guild decks players lay down rooms, monsters, traps and (of course) loot. All of this is dressed in a hugely nostalgic ‘pen & paper’ art style, influenced by classic 1980s and 90s tabletop RPGs (plus games the devs made as kids!).
Guild of Dungeoneering Ultimate Edition is being showcased to the public for the very first time at gamescom by the Indie Arena Booth. Virtual visitors will be treated to a demo of the game, featuring the first couple of hours of Ultimate Edition gameplay. This demo is available now on the original game’s Steam page.
“From today, players can delve into the demo to play Ultimate Edition for the very first time. We’ve seen a lot of buzz from fans since we announced Ultimate Edition so I’m excited to see their reaction to the demo”, says Colm Larkin, Director of Gambrinous. “This is also a great chance to expose a new audience to our wonderful mocking bard’s silly songs ahead of this November’s full release”.
Guild of Dungeoneering Ultimate Edition will be released for PC in November.
