About Guild of Dungeoneering
Welcome, Guild Master! We have much to do. Our Guild Hall can be expanded... perhaps it is time for an Apothecary? So many recruits, and so few return from the depths. Ah yes, we found more in the tavern. Fresh faced with the promise of glory bright in their eyes. Poor fools! That damned crypt will claim them all. And yet, perhaps among them is a hero, one who will return victorious, one who will bring glory to the Guild!
Guild of Dungeoneering is a turn-based dungeon crawler with a twist: instead of controlling the hero you build the dungeon around him. Using cards drawn from your Guild decks you lay down rooms, monsters, traps and of course loot! Defeating monsters lets you place better items for your hero to use, but placing ever harder monsters is the only way to keep the Dread Meter in check. Let it get too high and Bad Things start to happen! Meanwhile your hero is making his own decisions on where to go and what to fight. But will he be strong enough to take on the dungeon's overlord?
In between dungeon runs you manage your Guild, building new rooms to attract new classes of adventurer and to expand your decks of cards with more powerful items and events.
This game is in alpha right now but is already playable. Give it a go below! If you choose to buy the pre-order you will get
- The full game at release for Windows, Mac and (hopefully*) Linux
- Download DRM-free versions directly or install on Steam at launch
- Early access to all beta builds of the game before release
- That incredibly warm fuzzy feeling of helping an indie game developer! Go you!
*: I'm using Adobe AIR to package the game as a downloadable application, which works great for Windows and Mac but I've now heard may be more difficult on Linux. I'll do what I can!

Here's about 15 minutes of alpha gameplay with commentary by me, which gives a good flavour of the game. This is from the alpha as of March 2nd.

This is an early work-in-progress alpha version. I would love feedback in this devlog thread or on this Facebook page or @gambrinous. Thanks! If you are recording gameplay you should probably install the AIR version instead.
