Dungeonmans Is My Favorite Game About Dungeons, Man

Over Christmas and New Years I spent time catching up on games I'd missed throughout the year. But there was one game I became totally engrossed with: Dungeonmans.

Dungeonmans is a proper roguelike, the kind filled with turned-based fighting, scrolls and horrible death. But each death isn't so bad, as loot you bring back to the Dungeonman Academy—your homebase—helps your future characters prosper with better weapons and stats.

The traditional roguelike elements mixed with a greater sense of progression—even after dying make Dungeonmans incredibly addicting. Knowing my next character will potentially level up faster and hit harder on his way just make me want to keep playing until I can trounce everything in sight with my swords and bow.


You can see how my dynasty of Garrys and Neds got on above.

Dungeonmans is available on Steam.

Have you tried Dungeons of Dredmor?


It was one of the earliest indie roguelikes to hit Steam (now there seems to be a new one popping up each week). The visuals are atrocious, sure, but it's also one of the funniest and most intelligently written games I've played - the devs are one to watch, for sure (their bizarro game Clockwork Empire is on Steam Early Access right now, and will no doubt be awesome).

Super fun, and super challenging too. If you liked Dungeonmans, you'll probably love Dredmor.
