Rejoice! Desktop Dungeons Finally Has A (Close) Steam Release Date
Desktop Dungeons, from developers QCF Design, has been in development for a long, long time. After winning their IGF award in 2011, many have been eagerly anticipating the launch of the randomly generated dungeon crawler, with QCF providing already paying customers with a game to play, coupled with weekly updates. But the actual release was always on the horizon, with no actual date attached. Until today, that is.
Today QCF Design released a trailer, starring Grant Hinds, to announce the release date of Desktop Dungeons on Steam. November 7th will mark the debut of the South African title on Steam, a monumental achievement for the guys over in Cape Town and something the local gaming community can look on with absolute pride.
If you still have no idea what Desktop Dungeons is, would you like to explain where you found the rock you are currently living under? Desktop Dungeons is a randomly generated 2D dungeon crawler with a “bite-sized” playtime, which includes rapid gameplay and exploration, permadeath and some various classes. The game recently got an audio upgrade, with some rather incredible music and effects being added. Developer Danny Day has been rather vocal about the delays surrounding the game, and it seems like OCF really wanted the game to be perfect before unleashing it into the world.
Well, November 7th is just around the corner, and I for one cannot wait.
