Remember KeeperRL? That odd mix of Dungeon Keeper and Dwarf Fortress that we posted about recently is now on indiegogo looking for funds to reach a glorious "1.0" version.

The developer is looking to get $5,000 to improve pretty much every aspect of the game, the developer will only get the money if at-least $5,000 is pledged, so dig deep.

Plans for the money:
  • Big, persistent map (about 10 times bigger than now, area-wise), where you can build as many dungeons and play as many adventurers as you like. All the previous Keepers, if they are still alive, are now your enemies.
  • In-game exchange of maps through an online server. Let other players try to assault your dungeon with their army or an adventurer. Various statistics and a scoreboard of the most deadly dungeons.
  • Many special locations to explore. Go on quests, recruit more minions and find unique items to boost your black magic.
  • Much more content: special armor, weapons, items, special attacks, artifacts.
  • Lot's of work put into balancing and fun gameplay. Big part of this will be listening to user feedback.
  • Graphics and UI overhaul.
  • Original soundtrack.
  • Android port.


You can try the current version here. This would be a good one for open source fans to back, the source code is also on github.

About the developer
My name is Michał Brzozowski. I'm a software engineer. My previous employment was at Google in Kraków, Poland. In my career I've developed products from conception to release. I always loved playing and making games, and I now have the ambition to become an Indie game developer. I believe I have the motivation and skills to finish KeeperRL and make it a very good game.
