Legend of Dungeon offers paid beta access
You’ve probably heard of Legend of Dungeon; it’s a 2D side-scrolling action RPG with procedurally generated levels and Streets of Rage-style brawler combat. The game supports 1-4 players playing cooperatively in a bid to reach the 26th floor of the dungeon and loot the treasures contained therein.
The brainchild of two-person team Robot Loves Kitty, Legend of Dungeon is probably known above all else for its unique combination of lo-fi 2D sprites and real-time normal mapped lighting effects to create a really neat graphical style. The trailer shows this off pretty well:
Alix Stolzer, one-half of the Robot Loves Kitty team, writes in to tell me that Legend of Dungeon has become available for pre-order on Steam. It costs $9.99; Windows, Mac and Linux. The game will launch in approximately one month; until then, pre-orderers are promised access to the game’s beta builds.
