The absolutely ace deck-builder Dicey Dungeons is now on GOG

By - | Views: 8,087

If you prefer GOG to buy your games from you can now pick up the absolute gem that is Dicey Dungeons.

A deck-builder with a difference, as you're not just going through dungeons collecting cards to use during battles, you're also rolling dice to activate these various cards. Some only work with even numbers, some odd numbers and some need specific numbers - there's a lot of varied combinations to play through thanks to this system.

Features:

  • Six wildly different playable classes: Warrior, Thief, Robot, Jester, Inventor and Witch.
  • Dozens of enemies, ranging from Vacuum Cleaners that want to suck your blood, to creatures from Irish mythology, to suave malevolent snowmen.
  • A catchy, upbeat and energetic soundtrack by Chipzel (previously, the musician from Super Hexagon).
  • Beautiful and adorable artwork by Marlowe Dobbe.
  • Procedurally generated for endless play-throughs.

You absolutely should check out some of the mods that have been made for it too, some of them are absolutely huge. For example there's The Grab Bag adding in 200 new bits of equipment or MegaQuest which adds 6 whole new episodes to play through.

You can buy Dicey Dungeons now on GOG, Humble Store, itch.io and Steam.

I don't really know why this game is popular. It felt very repetitive to me, despite the wildly different characters. Like the strategies are different ok, but the world and enemies themselves are just too repetitive and boring IMO.

Quoting: ShabbyXI don't really know why this game is popular. It felt very repetitive to me, despite the wildly different characters. Like the strategies are different ok, but the world and enemies themselves are just too repetitive and boring IMO.

Slay the Spire, Dreamgate, Fate Hunters, Neoverse - they're all insanely repetitive. But you tend to play them for those unusual runs when it all comes together.

I enjoyed this a lot, albeit I'd burned out a little when I came to this, so I only have around 20 hours or so. Still, well worth picking up, I think.

Played it for 30 hours so far (bought it soon after it was released). It kept me decently entertained during that time, and it is the sort of game you can easily get back into after a hiatus.

The number one game I look forward to play on the SteamDeck in December. :)
Really wonder why it isn't released for mobile devices, just seems to fit so well.
Yes, the world is repetitive, but who cares. It's like a good Bond movie, a perfect mix of tension and relaxation.
