Dungeons and Dragons fans, unite! Okay, now all four of us are here, how’s it going? How much money have you spent on really expensive dice Kickstarters in the past few months? Yeah, us too. It’s becoming a real problem. Wait, why did we call this meeting?
Oh yeah: The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos, a title we already hate typing and we’ve only typed it once, has just been announced for Switch! Drawing its inspiration from the excellent X-COM and the divine Divinity: Original Sin 2, The Dungeon of Nibblebork is a comedic fantasy turn-based tactical RPG, and if that series of words doesn’t excite you, then you might be in the wrong place.
The Narglebarg series was first created by French author John Lang as an audio comedy series that parodied tabletop role-playing games and heroic fantasy tropes, and now it’s finally a video game.
With seven “classic role-playing game characters”, including Ranger, Elf, Dwarf, Barbarian, Magician, Ogre, and Thief, and more than 100 enemies to fight, The Dungeon of Newfoundland looks like it has a ton of content to keep us playing for hours. Just like those marathon 5-hour D&D sessions where the players ignore all the DM’s hints and instead decide to buy a pub and flirt with the evil dragon!
The game’s description hints at interesting and surprising secrets to be found with the game’s hidden and destructive objects, which will “turn the tide of battle” with status effects. Anyone who’s tried to to the Divinity: Original Sin 2 fight with all the oil and the fire will either be clapping their hands in excitement or trembling in the corner of the room in fear.
But there’s even more good news for lovers of tabletop nonsense: The Dungeon of Narrative will star Queen of the Nerds Felicia Day as one of the characters – she of Geek & Sundry, The Guild, and Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.
The Dungeon of Nomanssky will be coming to Switch this Summer, although it’s been out on Steam for a while if you want to give it a go ahead of time.
