Dungeonland is a cooperative action role-playing game, made by Brazilian developer Critical Studio[1], using the Unity engine. The game was released on January 29, 2013 for Windows, with a Mac OS X release scheduled for a later date.[2]

Gameplay[edit]

Dungeonland is a multiplayer hack & slash/dungeon crawler game, which takes place in a theme park controlled by a 'Dungeon Maestro'. The game features an isometric camera, and a series of maps with no storyline present. The game features simultaneous local and online multiplayer.

It is also possible for a fourth player to play as the Dungeon Maestro against the other players. They gain cards that can be spent with mana points to create obstacles such as killer rabbits, exploding frogs, or giant fans.

Development[edit]

In November 2013, a free-to-play version of the game was released through Valve's Steam platform.[3] The game's publisher Paradox Interactive initially had planned to develop Dungeonland into a franchise.[4]

Dungeonland was shut down by Paradox on April 18th, 2018.[5]
