The new ParentDish: helping raise kids of all ages

Dungeon Maker gets release date, screenshots


Dungeon Maker is coming to the PSP a lot sooner than you may think. XSEED sent us a reminder, telling us that the RPG will be available on June 19th, a Tuesday. With their announcement, they also conveniently provided us a plethora of screenshots. A quick look makes us not think very highly of the game's visual appeal -- hopefully, the gameplay will do more than enough to make up for its looks.

Building a better dungeon in Dungeon Maker

We'd think that playing Dungeon Maker would be akin to playing with Legos ... if the Legos attracted dozens of man-eating monsters. This new video highlights the play experience of Dungeon Maker. Watch as you start summoning new rooms, and get in touch with your interior decorator as you start color coordinating the rooms. Eventually, you'll have a dungeon that is oh-so-chic.

We'll be sure to have more on Dungeon Maker in the coming weeks.

Dungeon Maker website reveals silly plot


Dungeon making fans, take notice. XSEED's Dungeon Maker Hunting Ground has an official website now, with a projected release date right around the corner in June. XSEED also released Valhalla Knights awhile back, a title that was lampooned by critics for its restrictive game play and lack of story progression. How does the story in Dungeon Maker fare? Well, the new website contains some insight into the background story elements we think you'll find ... interesting.

You control the Architect (not that Architect), a hero that arrives in town wanting to develop a monster-luring dungeon so he can sharpen his fighting skills, net some serious gold coinage and become the baddest dungeon maker who ever lived. The hero must face skepticism from the townspeople that don't believe the Architect has what it takes to make the ultimate dungeon. But eventually, the Architect begins to win support of the townsfolk by luring rare and powerful enemies into his ever-growing dungeon. In turn, the townspeople equip the Architect with new dungeon making abilities. Will our hero be able to lure the powerful and elusive Wandering Demon, freeing the townsfolk from its reign of fear and terror once and for all?

Wow. The plot seems utterly ridiculous so it might be 0/2 for XSEED. On the other hand, a dungeon making game for the PSP is certainly unique. Perhaps its appeal might overcome such a far-fetched plot. We'll know a lot more once Dungeon Maker Hunting Ground is released in a few weeks. In the meantime, check out the game's website for more information.
