We are working right now on this project, which is a VR game for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. The game will use room scale features such as dodging projectiles, etc. but can also be played completely without moving physically. The artstyle will be 100% voxel art.

The version here on Itch.io will be updated to a certain point (all updates will be posted here), so we can gather information and feedback on the game. So let us know what you think about this project!

Right now the core system for dungeon generation is implemented and can be tested by downloading our free demo:

https://dungeons-and-treasure.itch.io/dungeons-and...

If everything works as intended we can start adding more content, all planned features can also be found on our itch.io page:

https://dungeons-and-treasure.itch.io/dungeons-and...

Here is a first gameplay footage:

Making some progress, today we are testing the shield and melee mechanics. Also the projectiles of the ranged skeletons have a small spread, so dodging is more difficult.

Update 02.05.2017:

We updated the demo to the next version. It seems that the core system works as intended. In this update we want to test the melee mechanics and the shield. You will be able to use the shield to block melee and ranged attacks. Enemies drop now currency and hearts, so you can regenerate some life.

The teleporter controls are too far away for melee weapons, we are aware of that. The whole design for the teleporter will change in future anyway.

Here are the changes:

v0.2a

*Added Shield

*Added Melee weapon

*You can now pick 2 out of 3 weapons at the start

*Haptic feedback for various things

*Added some sound effects

*Added small spread to the projectiles, so dodging is a bit more difficult now

*Enemies now drop currency

*Enemies now drop health (1/2 Heart, Full Heart)

*Waypoints currently broken (you cant use them with melee weapons)

Website (will be updated in near future and be the center of the game):

Have fun!

We have uploaded a new gameplay trailer!

Also we know there is an issue where you can push yourself out of the level. This usually happens if you come close to a corner and your hand is outside the wall. We will fix this in the next update!

We are currently finishing the interface system, you will be able to open a menu, where you can choose between different locomotion types.

Update 22.06.2017:

We updated the demo to the next version. We have reworked and improved the dungeon generation system. We also added all locomotion types to the game. You can access the menu by clicking the menu button above the trackpad. You can choose then the desired locomotion type with the trigger button. We also fixed the controls for the oculus rift. If you need to swap hands with the oculus you have to open the menu and click the swap hands button. 

Here are the changes:

 v0.3a
 *Added menu with locomotion selection (3 types) and switching hands
 *Improved oculus controls
 *All equipment now uses overheat
 *Added 1 item drop
 *Added heart container to secret rooms

We updated the demo to the next version. In this version we added some more features such as shopkeer and chests. You can now spend your gold to buy random items from the shopkeeper.

v0.4a
*Added chests
*Added shopkeeper
*Added tooltip for items
*Start weapon now lie in a weapon rack

Update 24.07.2017:

Today is a big update. We added drop-in multiplayer:

 You can join a random lobby and start playing with someone or create an own private lobby. If you try to join a random lobby and there is no free lobby available you will automaticaly create a mutliplayer lobby which can be joined by others. If you dont like multiplayer, you still can play singleplayer. You can make the choice in the lobby room which we also added with this update. Voice chat should also work. Currently you can mute your mic on the 2d screen after the game started. You can also create a private lobby atm. only on the 2d screen. 

While you are in a multiplayer run you have shared loot and gold with all party members. The enemies are also stronger for each additional player. Random lobbys can have max. 4 players.  A private lobby has no limit. If you die in a multiplayer run and someone is still alive, you will become a ghost. You still can move and talk to your party members but you cant trigger traps or make any damage, also all enemies will ignore you. In future it is planed to revive all dead players if the stage boss is defeated.

Especially here feedback is needed, so if you notice some issues on multiplayer or servers, let us know. As always any feedback is welcome.

v0.5a
*Drop-in Multiplayer with up to 4 players, private lobbies with no limit (currently some lobby controls are on 2d screen only)
*Added first boss
*Improved waypoints
*Hands are currently blue spheres (only those trigger chests, buttons, etc.)
*You can now drop weapons (hold the menu button for a few seconds)
*Lobbyroom (you can choose between multiplayer or singleplayer)

Multiplayer:
-Voice chat
-Enemies scale with player count
-Turn into ghost on death
-Shared drops and gold

We are now on steam with a store page, game will release in Q4 2017.

Hello! We made some progress in the last weeks. This small footage covers the most important things: 

Youtube Video

We experiment with additional rooms on the z-axis, so you can either fall into a room or can move up into a room. The looping system is working, after you defeat the boss you loop into the next environment. We also added more locomotion options. There are now destructible objects in the dungeon, for example, in the hallways you can destroy the vases, which will drop currency.

For people who want to try the demo, we are now on steam:

We recently started a kickstarter campaign. We would use the money to polish the game even more. BUT dont worry, even if the campaign fails, we will still finish and release the game in Q4 2017.
