Indie Wonderland: Desktop Dungeons

I vaguely remember playing QCF Design‘s Desktop Dungeons a long, long time ago… back in the half-forgotten fog of history that was…

2010? Can that be right? It definitely feels longer ago than that. But then again, I guess the strongly future-sounding year of ‘2010’ is already three and a half years ago. Which, let me tell you: I know my Bluesian co-host Justin is not a fan of this phrase, but nothing makes you feel old quite like the realization that a time period you vividly remember being the ‘future’s future’ is now the past.

Anyway, what? Sorry. Desktop Dungeons, then! I played it a long time ago, back when it was free and pixels. Now it’s pricey, and even more pixels, and I’m looking forward to seeing just how much my memories of yester-yester-yester-yesteryear have lied to me.

(Spoiler levels: Narrative, Not really a factor. Mechanical, High.)

After the break: Desktop Dungeons. Desktops aren’t really involved, but the dungeons *more* than compensate for this.
