Like Roguelikes, but dislike sinking massive amounts of time? Then boy, do we have the game for you!Desktop Dungeons is a Roguelike (or perhaps a puzzle game disguised as one) created in GameMaker, and a very unique one, in that each dungeon that spawns takes about ten minutes to play. You choose a race and a class, set out, and try not to die. All your resources (HP, MP, even monsters you can kill) are heavily restricted, and careful rationing of resources is vital to your success.The game starts off easier than most Roguelikes, but as the game goes on, it throws you curveballs, adding new types of monsters and extra features. And as the game goes on, you unlock more classes and races.So despite individual sessions being short, the game has a lot to spend time on. It can be easy to lose yourself.The Alpha version of the game is free to play. A commercial version with much more content, more detailed art and a semi-relevant plot line was released on Steam on November 7th, 2013.
