Welcome to Dungeon Colony!

Vote on Steam Greenlight

This is my first public indie game. My goal is to create a game in which you make your own dungeon while defending it from Heroes.

Dungeon Colony is a game influenced by one of my favorite games - Dungeon Keeper - and it adds Tower Defense waves of enemies with resource collection and crafting.

The game is in alpha and many features are not complete yet. I am updating the game quite regularly, sometimes multiple times a week. Download the alpha release on the web-site at www.DungeonColony.com. The game requires Java and it auto-updates itself if a new version is available.

About the game:

Dungeon Colony is a 2D fantasy real-time strategy game in which you take control over a Dungeon Lord and his loyal Minions to explore and build a Dungeon and save your colony from the brink of extinction. Command your Minions to dig out tunnels and rooms, craft items from resources they collect, and set up traps to defend your new home against greedy heroes. The mountain harnesses powerful magic that has the potential to give you control over the lands around you. But it's up to you to uncover its secrets before you are overrun by your enemies.

5 comments by w01fram on Nov 25th, 2014

Hello Dungeon Masters!

The release from yesterday, November 23 adds an array of new objects to the game. You can find these objects in the editor and create your own levels to place them. Some of these objects can be crafted, and the crafting recipes will be made available soon.

The new objects include:

A wooden bench, wooden chair, small wooden table, large wooden table, round wooden table, buffet, 3 books, a scroll, a plate, a diamond, spider venom, 2 tomb stones, a stone cross, an anvil, a candle stand, and a stone crypt:

The next screenshot puts some of these objects into perspective showing them in a dungeon setting:

What's next ? ... a bit more art I think. I have some new trees to add to the engine.

if you build walls near the entrance incoming enemies will bug out and just hang around on the road, the overlord bugs out and forgets where his bed is and wont sleep and as someone else has already stated the overlord will bug out and wont study even with ample room for movement and a study picked. These are actual bugs and not something we have done wrong.

Thanks for reporting the bugs. We are aware of these bugs and have increased their priority. We will post in the news when they are fixed.

this looks interesting, like the fact that you play as the dungeon lord rather than a hero

Hey RTS fans,

While Dungeon Colony features some tower defense mechanics, I decided to finally change it's official genre to Real Time Strategy. My current development activities allow levels that don't include enemy waves and for that reason the game required to be re-categorized. The sanbox mode will remain the most similar game type to the tower defense genre, so if you fancy that kind of game mode, give it a shot.

Yes, a shortcut to select the minion, but not center around it, just select it. Number shortcuts would be great too!!
I didn't know about the workbench building. Thank you.
