That’s right! We’ll be hosting another Supershow!
Come, let me regale you with details!
The IndieDev Supershow is the second supershow I’ve done. The last show was 14 hours, only had games from Steam greenlight, got something like 40k views, and ended with a giant cake eating party. This time it’s not greenlight specific so it’s for ALL devs, it is 24 hours long(48 sort of, we are doing a dual/collaborative stream!), and we will have even more cake!!
I want to focus on amazing games that haven’t gotten the attention they deserve, with a few awesome successful games that deserve more attention mixed in. So if any great game comes to mind, get the devs to fill out this sign up sheet! http://bit.ly/1ca9fk0
The shows will be on January 10th-12th! Who needs sleep anyway?!
I'm sure you get thousands of these questions, but when will you bring back Neverdaunt? It was an amazing idea for an MMO, and I'd love to see it back in action.
Expect some news in the next year :)
Hey RobotLovesKitty, We love your game and we would like to upload vidoes using your game to youtube. What are your rules in regarding uploading to youtube
Please do! We would like people to upload as many videos of Legend of Dungeon that they can :D
(we are also working on a website update that states that clearly)
Are we going to get an Ouya version anytime soon?
Unfortunately, there is a lot of work to get the game to run on a Tegra 3 :/ but we are working on it.
Sometimes we get cool emails from fans of our games… but this one is pretty exceptional :D
Hi, firstly please let me start by saying that I have never contacted a game developer before, but until this point I felt that I never had a reason to!
I cant really think of a better way of starting this email, other than to say that I absolutely love Legend of Dungeon! Honestly, I have been a hardcore gamer since my first ever computer (an Amstrad CPC464) and I am not only still a modern gamer, but also a collecter of retro consoles, handhelds and computers.
If I was to pick my one of favourite games of all time, one that gives me a huge feeling of satisfaction to play, its Gauntlet 2 in the arcade. There was nothing better than getting 4 friends around a cabinet to see how far you could get on 50 pence! It was hugely original, had great sound and visuals and was relentlessly as hard as nails… but more importantly, it was damn good fun to play!
I can honestly say that I must have owned and played hundreds (if not thousands) of games in the last 36 years, but not once have I come close to getting that feeling that I once got nearly 30 years ago…
My friends and I often discuss over a few beers what is missing from games today, and how hard it is to be truly original now that everything has been done to death… Well, I extend my most heartfelt congratulations to you for creating something truly original, with amazing sound and visuals and the one thing that is missing from most AAA titles today… FUN!
Yup, finally a game that is just good old fashioned pure and simple fun.
I havent had this much fun on a computer game for close to 30 years now, and to play LOD is just a pure joy, one that I want to share with everyone that comes round to the house! In fact, its now installed and playable in my 4 player arcade cabinet as to me, thats how it should be played.
But for me, games go deeper than just playing, it brings people and families together… like my 6 year old son and me. His first console was a NES (that I got him for his 2nd birthday) and ever since then we have played many games together. After his mother left and took him, I only get to see him at weekends, but we still have a huge bond through computer games as he cannot wait to come round and play games with his dad all weekend :)
Recently, we have both been playing Pokemon Y on our 3DS’s and its great that its simple and fun to play, and we can battle and trade etc with each other, and that mechanic works for him as he loves to collect stuff :)
However, this weekend I finished the installation on the cab and he sat and played LOD with me… 5 hours later(!) he has renamed legend of dungeon to Legend of Awesome, and squeels with delight everytime he finds some awesome new hat, or ridiculous monster :)
He left this weekend begging us to have a Legend of Awesome weekend on Saturday, and wants to do nothing else but sit with his dad and play.
So from us, I thank you for creating such an amazing experience that takes me back to my most fondest memories, and creating new memories for the next generation of gamer. Well done!

HOLY STUFF Legend of Dungeon on a MAME Cabinet! I read this out loud to Alix when it arrived, and she actually cried it was so moving. The reality that our games can connect people like this is more then we could have hoped for.
I missed the LoD Steam card thing. When you make LoD2 or your other games, will you be doing more of these? I love drawing stuff for your stuff ~
Probably! We were blown away by the awesomeness of the entry’s we got, so I imagine we’ll do it again.
Just a quick video talking about the future of LoD and RLK
We will be streaming the development process somewhat regularly over on our twich channel, so subscribe if you want to get updated when that happens: http://www.twitch.tv/robotloveskitty
You sacrificed so much during the development of Legend Of Dungeon, and not only endured but enjoyed a lifestyle most people in America would cringe at. You did all this in order to follow a dream and pursue a passion. Please tell us how you're doing in terms of sales and profits following the release of Legend of Dungeon. Was it all worth it? Are you getting rich? Is there a happy ending to this nerd fairy tale?
Hmm… these are good questions.
Right now we are packing up to move to our new apartment in Manchester, NH. Once we get settled in there I want to make a long post (or maybe video?) about how things are going, and what our hopes are for the future of RLK.
But the short answer is, things have been pretty awesome for a long time. The tree house was awesome. Steam sales are going great. New apartment will be awesome.
We are genuinely happy people. We spend a lot of time thinking about everything, and then we go after things we want, and that makes us happy. When things suck, we try to minimize it. When things rock, we focus on it.
We are really excited about all the cool things we are going to be able to create! But yeah, give us like a week or so and we’ll make a big update :D
We asked people to send in their art for Legend of Dungeon, in hopes of using it as Steam cards, and we were overwhelmed with how much downright AWESOME art we got.. thank you everyone who made something for this!
Here is all the art we got, the ones that are live on Steam got a title in the gallery.
(Imgur decided not to upload this one, behold the rainbows!)
See what I mean about getting tons of awesome stuff?
Thank you all so much!
The release version of the game is now out!
We also have a new launch trailer! LEGEND OF PARTY
If you want to go around today giving everyone the link to the game, it’s right here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/238280 We are trying to impress Steam so that they will continue to show our game on the front page after today, so if you want to help, we’d really appreciate the mention on FB, Twitter, forums, etc!
