Dungeon Prospector is an old-school dungeon crawler/roguelike. You're in infinity dungeons (in length and width) full of monsters and treasures. How far can you go and how long can you survive?

To all linux users, note: unity3d is optimized for ubuntu, so it may not work on your distribution. There have already been issues with Debian and Xubuntu. So I recommend you try compatibility with the demo first.

Game features:

- Dungeon generation (Castle and cave theme).
- Over 35 items (food/potions/weapons/armor).
- 5 monsters.
- 2 Bosses.
- Rest (similar to hunger).
- Leveling.
- Permadeath.
- Crafting.

Dev Update #18

11 months ago News 0 comments


Hello and merry soon-ish christmas everybody.

Here I deliver another update to Dungeon Prospector and it's changelog is:

Added 'x' button to chest window.Added worm egg which spawns small worms when you get close.Added 3 items.Added 2 combinations.Added gem's bonuses can now be stacked via combining. Infinitely. Changed stairs block a bit, so it would align better with cave themed blocks.Changed how themes change with depth: 0-10 dungeon, 11-20 cave, 21-inf dungeon/cave odd/even.Fixed boss health bars not displaying correctly.Fixed slimes of Slime King no longer stuck or spawn inside him.Fixed stairs block would not delete itself after player got far away from it (blinking of walls / z-fighting).Fixed dagger no longer reroll it's additional stats, when enhanced via crafting.

Update should come online soon.

Also the game is discounted for a week, until 29 December.

This is most likely the last update for Dungeon Prospector as it's been more than two years of development and its time to move on :)

Thank you to everyone who supported us over that time.

*going through desura pages* Turns out descriptions of indieDB and Desura not linked together, well that was unexpected. Updated them to the ones on indieDB just now. Also the game is still listed in Alpha-funding category of Desura however it's not in alpha stage for more than a half a year now, that should be sorted out soon too.

Closest I've seen is when monsters occasionally attack you from behind before you notice them. Other than that, no jump scares.

I have no problem with people having opinions, you certinaly have the freedom to do so. Nobody is asking you to be a wordsmith, but what I have a problem with is useless negative comments, formed in incomplete sentences.

It's obvious that vertical inversion is well beyond your comprehension as a choice. The reason why you thinking it makes a person an idiot for using it, isn't clear at all though.

90%+ of the people who use vertical inversion, do so from coming from a simulator game background, or just find it something they became used to when the option was presented.

Terminator: Future Shock was the first game i played with keyboard & mouse. The standard mouse option was the inverted option. So i play my games since 1996 with inverted mouse controls. :)
@intergang: You are right with the simulator game background. :) I bought every flight sim back in the old days. Gunship 2000, F-117A Nighthawk, etc.

So many people, so many minds

I prefer 'I' button for inventory however there also people who prefer 'B','E' or 'Tab'.

Can you add the option to invert the y-axis (up/down) ? Is there no standard procedure for inverting controls in Unity? Your game is sadly not the only one without such option.

Yes, this is an accessiblity issue that should certainly be addressed in the future.

I'm reviewing the game as it stands now. If it gets better I will upgrade my score. Issues: 1 When you go into options then back out it resets the size of your screen to small whether you are windowed or not. 2 The option to set controls does not work and the controls are not mentioned anywhere. For other people: **E** is take web or open chest. When you look at a slime/blob on the floor you get a dotted line at the top of it horizontally. 3 Personal preference but I prefer retro chunky pixel games…
