The Living Dungeon [Steam, Official Site] is a board game come to life in video game form and it's now available on Linux. Up to 9 players can take part in a battle of wits, luck and skullduggery. It also features a 30 hour story campaign.

In their release announcement they said this:
QuoteI fully realized that we'd never make any kind of profit from the Linux version of the game, or even the windows version since we have very poor marketing ability, but I know that we have brought a certain amount of joy to many people and wish that we have manage to do the same for all you Linux peeps out there.

What we would ask very humbly however, is that if you do enjoy the game, let someone else know it exists.

Hopefully a number of you pick it up if you like the look of it.

I personally think it looks fantastic and I might even give it a go myself!

About the game
Each player has only 5 actions per turn. They then have only 2 fretful minutes to decide what to do with those 5 actions. Panic will set in. The possibilities and threats will become overwhelming. Your mind will freeze up! Your time is running out for you to complete your objective, but one wrong move could be fatal! There are just so many ways to die in The Living Dungeon.

Seems like Hero Quest or Descent to me.

I love this kind of tabletop-ish videogames, like the Witcher Adventure Game.

I wonder if this one would be released DRM free.

Well merry Christmas me

My only complaint is that the tiles looks awfully scifi for a fantasy setting, hopefully something that can be amended with a little texture hacking.


Still I think I'll buy a hand full of these as early Christmas presents, one though, does cross platform multiplayer work? I've a few friends who've yet to see the penguin shaped light.

This looks fantastic - what engine might it be built on?

BeamboomThis looks fantastic - what engine might it be built on?

Unity 5 - Based on what's written by the devs in the Steam forum.

This game looks really interesting - I'll be picking it up.

In the comments someone wrote the game doesn't always look that shiny and volatile.

Thanks - well then I don't understand why they didn't go multiplat from day one. But man, Unity sure has come with age!

I like digital board games. I've had great fun with Armello.

The first time I spoke to the Dev team (at the last EGX at Earl's Court, so September 2014?) I'm not sure they even knew Linux existed. Since then they've progressed from "we won't be doing a Linux version" through "we probably won't be doing a Linux version" to "so, we've built a Linux version". They are a young team, pretty sure this is their first game after leaving University, and we should be thankful they're willing to grow, adapt and learn rather than be critical of decisions made by their younger selves.
