Boyfriend Dungeon is an odd title – it manages to sound each extra kinky and fewer bizarre than the sport it’s hooked up to. Announced again in October by Shrouded Isle and Moon Hunters studio Kitfox, it’s about smoochin’ on swords. Part hack and slash action-RPG, half courting sim, it options a wide range of weapons that remodel into an equally numerous suite of suitors. There’s women and men of all stripes, folks who don’t match the gender binary and apparently a kitty to pet, too. It hit Kickstarter today and is properly on the best way to its preliminary funding objective. Check out the brand new trailer under.
Kitfox’s earlier video games have been an imaginative lot (a near-monochrome cult administration recreation and a high-concept ‘personality test’ motion RPG), however Boyfriend Dungeon feels particularly indulgent. It’s the type of gleeful, heartfelt weirdness I’m blissful to see extra of on this much less irony-poisoned, extra honest period. Set in sunny and trendy Verona Beach, the participant finds a component time job clearing out ‘The Dunj’. Stab monsters in ruined however contemporary-looking tunnels, make money and spend it on an evening in town along with your favorite weapon to get upgrades in fight.
While Boyfriend Dungeon will come out even when the Kickstarter fails, clearing that preliminary hurdle will deliver the cat, Pocket, to the sport. In fight, Pocket turns right into a set of bladed brass knuckles, appropriately sufficient. Given that the Kickstarter web page has solely been up for 2 hours, they usually’re over midway to their preliminary funding objective, it’s protected to say this one can be funded very quickly. They’ve additionally bought some attention-grabbing contributors, together with Christine Love (Ladykiller In A Bind), Meg Jaynath (80 Days) and Hato Moa (Hatoful Boyfriend) on narrative design, writing & artwork respectively.
You can discover Boyfriend Dungeon on Kickstarter here (the place a CA$20 pledge – round £12 – will get you the sport when it’s completed), or on Steam here. While something can occur and all’s honest in love, conflict and crowdfunding, Kitfox hope to get the sport out by September 2019.
