Version Unicorn is LIVE!

The path was rough and bumpy, and the Save-lord was powerful and fought strongly against us, but we pushed onward. ONWARD TO UNICORNS!

The update is Live on Steam and should be up on the Humble page shortly!

Here is the Change Log:

  • Added Save and Resume! Exiting the game will save your current progress. Reset will start the game over. (We tried to test this thoroughly,but let us know if it doesn’t work for you)
  • Added Highscore access to the Options menu
  • Added Achievements to the Steam version!
  • Added new textures to the dungeon that change as you go deeper!
  • Moved Mode switching to the main menu  
  • Fixed some secret things
  • Nerfed Floating Eyes slightly
  • Made Reaper’s more scary

And here’s a highlight video of us playing the latest build:

(sorry for all the loudness, we got excited)

We’ll be hard at work adding Pets and Classes now, and we’ll try and stream development frequently! We are REALLY excited about putting in the classes etc. We can’t wait to play it that way!!

If you aren’t already, you really should Follow us on Twitter, or Facebook, or something.. We’ve got a lot that’s going to happen… once LoD gets it’s final update, a whole new game is coming!

Lastly, for the next couple of days Legend of Dungeon+ soundtrack is in the Humble Weekly Bundle, along with some other really great games! It’s a great chance to get your friends to try Legend of Dungeon, and to get the soundtrack too (since it’s the game tracks as they were composed..without the procedural generation) Go forth into BUNDLEMANIA!

Thanks for the support and enthusiasm everyone, that alone makes developing games so very very worth it! 

Upsilon Circuit

We’ve finally unveiled our secret project to the world.

Upsilon Circuit is a single server, persistent world, online action RPG, with a limit of 8 players. Players adventure in a massive dungeon maze where they fight monsters, collect ‘Dream Tech Fragments’, and unravel a mysterious story.


Each player broadcasts to a livestream audience, who bid to purchase weapons and items to help a player, or monsters and traps to hinder them. Experience points a player gets from the game are distributed to the audience, who then collectively assign the skill points.


When Players die, they may never get a chance to play again. A member of the audience is selected to fill the open slot and they begin their only adventure in the maze.


The idea for Upsilon Circuit came about while thinking about real permanence, rarity, and consequence in video games. We also had so much fun watching people play our other games that we decided to create a game that would be a lot of fun to watch. 

Upsilon Circuit is in very early development, but we’ll keep you posted on our progress. You can sign up to the newsletter at upsiloncircuit.com if you do that kind of thing. 

We are working with artist Erin “CobraMode” McClellan who collaborated with us on Zap’em Dino Cowboys in the VRJam; and once again with composer David Dirig who did the Legend of Dungeon soundtrack. 



Also, we’re working hard to finish up our Legend of Dungeon pet and player class expansions! More news about that soon too :D


April News Update, secrets and PAX!

From the depth and darkness of the dev cave, a small voice echos out: “We’ll be at PAX guys

We’ll be there roaming around this time, with RLK shirts on, so if you find us we’ve got a handful of Robot Loves Kitty pins and stickers to give out, and endless high fives! It would really make our day if people came and said hi, that’s why we want to lure you with goodies!

Alix is going to be talking in a panel on Friday telling our story about getting into the industry (and giving bad advice/cackling madly to herself). 

In other news: Legend of Dungeon Version Unicorn is nearly solid, and after PAX we’ll be pushing ourselves hard to get Pets and Classes in! so expect to see that fairly soon! it’s a lot to add in, but we’ll be working super hard at it.

And in other other news: We have a big secret project that you will all find out about really soon! We’ve been working on it for a few months, in between LoD stuff :D we’ve even livestreamed a bit of development for it, but whenever anyone asked us what it was, we LIED! 

it’s the reason we’ve been so quiet.. seeeeeecrets~

sentrysapper asked:

Is Neverdaunt ever coming back?

Yes. I think about that world every day. My walls are plastered with paintings of Neverdaunt. Neko and Zombies and blips and swords and Robots and tronics… I don’t know when, but Neverdaunt can never die, I promise.

That might sound ridiculous I know, but it’s pretty true, and I’m here to show you how to harness this power to it’s fullest!

Come young wizard, don this novice robe of learning.

Reddit - Upvote and comment in posts about the game, join the game subreddit, and make posts about it to gaming subreddits!

Talking - it’s not on the internet, but tell your friends about the game, or better yet show/play it with them! Then show them the ways of the wizard!

Steam

Forums - Comment and keep threads you see about the game active, post threads on the game if you don’t see one, inspire others to be a wizard like you.

Kickstarter-  spread the word as much as possible, use your wizard powers!!

Steam Greenlight - If the game is on greenlight, Vote Yes! You should also favorite and follow them, and leave a comment, this tells Steam that they are extra important, and it helps your friends discover it too!

That’s about it, I think class is over! If you think I missed something, let me know and I’ll add it in!

Devs everywhere thank you!

-Kitty

While you’re at it, we could always use a little extra magic ourselves!

Twitter, Facebook, TwitchSteam!

daveyalpaca asked:

Hello there Robot and Kitty, I've been playing Legend of Dungeon for a good few hours now, and I've encountered some problems. But I'd doubt I could list my entire experience with the game, is it possible for players and fans to talk to you guys in a better, and much more free way other than here on Tumblr? Like a forum or something? Thank you in advance.

We actively monitor the Steam forums http://steamcommunity.com/app/238280/discussions/ (I read your post there) and the Legend of Dungeon subreddit http://www.reddit.com/r/LegendofDungeon
If you’ve run into a bug, send me an email: robot@robotloveskitty.com

midnightinspacetown asked:

Hi! I loved seeing this game and just bought it, but when I'm trying to play the game I realized most of the environment is Black, so I cant see any of the beautiful things you've designed(like the tavern image flashes and then goes Black), I've tried looking in the bugs list, but I haven't seen anything, hope this isn't the wrong place to ask, or am I just being silly by doing something incorrectly. Any help would be wonderful!

First thing I would do is try updating your graphics drivers… might be that simple. If that doesn’t do it, try turning off bump mapping in the options. If you still have trouble, send me an email: robot@robotloveskitty.com
