Today, Tokyo-based indie developers Onion Games (who in the past have worked on titles such as Little King’s Story, Chulip, Rez, and Super Mario RPG), have announced that their latest title, Dandy Dungeon – Legend of Brave Yamada – has released on Steam.
In Dandy Dungeon, you are Yamada-kun, a programmer at a major game publisher who hates his job. When you aren’t at your job, you are at your apartment, working away to create a game of your own, an RPG where you are the hero. However, one day he falls in love upon meeting his new neighbor, Maria-chan.
Dandy Dungeon is a story-driven, romatic comedy roguelite-RPG. Players will be able to experience a chiptune-inspired soundtrack as they loot procedurally-generated dungeons, change their weapons into legendary and shinier weapons, collect the appropriately-named Dandy armor sets, and catalog monsters in players’ quest to capture the heart of Maria-chan in a way that definitely isn’t desperate and/or creepy.
The Steam release of Dandy Dungeon includes all of the patches of the Nintendo Switch version, as well as its own leaderboard (because PC gamers rule, y’all), so people can see how far up the totem pole they can actually climb, rather than just listen to their friends bragging over Discord.
Players can play Dandy Dungeon with either a controller or mouse & keyboard, which is to be expected, really, because it’s the current year. Even cooler is that players can stream the game using the Steam Link app and play using full touch controls. Pretty
dandy neat. For players just getting into Dandy Dungeon for the first time, a free expansion, Dandy Dungeon 2: Phantom Bride is also on the way, which will double the size of the game and be available on Steam and the Nintendo Switch.
