Super Dungeon Maker coming to Switch this year

Posted on November 2, 2022 by in News, Switch eShop

Original (2/8): Super Dungeon Maker, which developer FIRECHICK describes as “an adorable 2D pixel art dungeon-crawler-meets-level-designer mash-up”, will launch on Switch later this year.

Drawing inspiration from Super Mario Maker, in Super Dungeon Maker you will design and create pixel art-style dungeons, which you can then share with others online. The game will include a wide variety of levels, enemies, items, and bosses that players can utilise, and will include support for competitive statistics such as completion times and rates for its online community.

While Super Dungeon Maker doesn’t sport a “traditional” single-player campaign, its story goes like this: long ago, when the bird goddess created the land, she left behind mysterious eggs containing magical artifacts that her disciples would use to enrich their lives for generations. To honor and protect these artifacts, the ancient birds built great temples and dungeons. Over time, the knowledge of the artifacts was lost; however, new generations carried on the tradition of building new dungeons and exploring old ones. In the game, you’ll take on the role of Fink, a small yet brave chicken whose courage instils in them the honorable task of clearing dungeons and creating new ones — should the occasion call for it.

Key Features of Super Dungeon Maker include:

DM Extraordinaire: In the dungeon, your creative prowess is limitless; place as many enemies, floors, secret paths, perilous traps, special items, and hidden objects as your heart desires. Just remember: the reward makes it worthwhile, but the challenge is what keeps them coming back.

A Dungeon of Pure Imagination: With so many ways to customize dungeons, there’s no telling where you’ll get swept off to! Careful dungeon design means not only well-placed traps and enemies, but enchanting environments, too! Choose between dungeon biomes like forest, desert, and castle — or even complex combinations of them all!

Accessible Adventuring: Unlike other level editors and sandbox games with significant learning curves, Super Dungeon Maker is optimized for both controller and mouse + keyboard play, making it easy for anyone of any skill level to jump in and start creating. Its simplistic UI and easy-to-learn instructions make Super Dungeon Maker an easy choice for fledgling creators and pro designers alike.

Dungeons Anonymous: Once you’ve unleashed your deadly dungeons upon the world, it’s advised to collect feedback from your victims…erm…players…in order to perfect them and keep them of the highest quality. Earn a reputation and keep adventurers coming back to your divine creations!

Here is a trailer for Super Dungeon Maker:
