Desktop Dungeons town

The time has finally come – Desktop Dungeons will be releasing on Steam 7 November 2013. To go with that launch, QCF Design has released a launch trailer starring the exuberant Grant Hinds and some fantastic cooking skills.

First things first, the trailer:

For those sans video ability or interest, the trailer is essentially a spoof cooking show wherein Grant throws all manner of things into a bowl to cook up a “bite-sized adventure”. Very cute, funny and well done. I’ve got to say it’s a nicely polished trailer – and exciting to know that Desktop Dungeons is releasing soon. By next week Thursday, you can all be downloading your official version of Desktop Dungeons. I expect productivity to drop to an all-time low on Friday.

For those still curious about what the gameplay is like, check out my amazingly awesome let’s play where I test out this “bite-sized” play time with a 10-minute run at the game. Plus, the thing now has music, which has been supplied by Danny Baranowsky and Grant Kirkhope – which is pretty damned exciting. Danny Baranowsky contributed to the soundtracks of some of your favourite indie games; Super Meat Boy, Canabalt, and The Binding of Isaac. Grant Kirkhop, meanwhile was responsible for the music in some of the very best N64 games; GoldenEye 007, Banjo-Kazooie, Donkey Kong 64, and Perfect Dark – as well as the sweeping orchestral soundtrack in Kingdoms of Amalur: The Reckoning. 

If we’re not wrong, Desktop dungeons will be the first South African developed game to get a proper Steam release – and the boys from QCF should be proud of everything they’ve accomplished.
