[Episode 47] Gaslamp Games and Dungeons of DredmorPosted by Eric Leslie
If I were to tell you that a commercial roguelike was in development with a full, aesthetically pleasing UI, point-and-click controls, tons of custom art and a wicked sense of humor, what would you say? Would you say “sign me up?” How about if I told you that in this game, you might learn the dread secrets of… The Cave of Poodles?
Sounds like a Monty Python sketch gone horribly awry, perhaps, but Dungeons of Dredmor is quite real, and very soon you’ll be able to play it for yourself. For this episode we were very happy to welcome David Baumgart and Nicholas Vining of Gaslamp Games, to talk about their labor of love and its lengthy but frequently hilarious development process. Learn the secret connection between Gaslamp Games and Media Molecule! Discover what roguelikes and pinball games have to do with one another! Learn what the Hell “Europa Barbarorum” is! (Sure, you could just click the link, but where’s the fun in that?) Listen to sordid tales of hoarded vegetables!
All this and more await you within. Seriously, David and Nicholas are a fun pair of guys, you don’t want to miss this. We also gave away a copy of the game, so, you know, maybe you won. Might as well find out.
Join us! The Dungeons of Dredmor await.
