‘Ice Cream Headaches’ ensue as second adventure pack for card based RPG Guild of Dungeoneering launches for PC and MAC
Independent developer Gambrinous, in partnership with indie publisher Versus Evil, announced the launch of the second expansion pack for the quirky and unique card based RPG Guild of Dungeoneering on PC and MAC. Ice Cream Headaches gives gamers even more reasons to continue adventuring with a whole new ‘cold’ themed region, 3 more classes of dungeoneers to recruit, 21 new quests, 30 new monsters and bosses to battle, and lots of new loot to equip. It also introduces an important new mechanic to the game called ‘Favour’ which adds a whole new strategic element to dungeon creation.
“I’m really excited to get fans playing Ice Cream Headaches. Not only does it add more Guild of Dungeoneering content like you’d expect from an expansion, but it also deepens the existing gameplay with some new mechanics for example you now gain ‘Favour’ through strategic dungeon creation, which you then spend to do things like draw extra cards in combat or even remove useless cards from your dungeoneer’s deck!” – Gambrinous Studio Head Colm Larkin.
Guild of Dungeoneering turns traditional dungeon crawling on its head by putting a new spin on classic game play – rather than controlling a dungeoneer, players build their dungeon around themselves. Using a random deck of cards, players can expand the dungeon and strategically place loot and monsters to lure their dungeoneer in the direction they want him (or her) to go. When their dungeoneer confronts a monster (either willingly or not), battle lines are drawn and the victor will be decided on how cunning a player is with the hand that’s been dealt to them. Over time, as players collect enough gold and gain more experience, they will be able to build out their own Guild by adding rooms to attract more-powerful adventurers to unlock better weapons and special cards for their Guild deck all in the name of fame and fortune.
The Ice Cream Headaches DLC is available now on PC and MAC for $4.99/€4.99/£3.99 and will release for mobile later this year. Steam Store Page: http://store.steampowered.com/app/539040
