On this blog, there’s going to be a lot of video game related content. Besides my side work reviewing games at opRainfall, I’m also creating my own video game known as Dungeon University.
Basically, it’s a turn-based RPG heading to the PC, filled with dungeon crawling and character interaction. Uniquely, each character’s level is the total of the bonds they share with other party members. Between battles and special dialogue sequences, each character will get to know each other as partners, as well as the group as a whole.
As the name suggests, our heroes are college students, but most of their courses are in things like sword techniques or healing magic. You can choose topics to study in order to work toward new and better skills, then take your pick of mysterious dungeons to explore and battle in. As you learn more about the school’s dark secrets, some scary people might come to challenge you…
If you’ve played Persona 3 or 4, or Trails of Cold Steel, it draws a lot of inspiration from them, but I wanted to tie the character links even closer to the battle gameplay.
This is just the overview, obviously. It will take time, but I hope to make this website the home of all things Dungeon University. So, stay tuned!
