Visually, Popup Dungeon is an enchanted board game, sort of like a cross between Jumanji and a Dungeons and Dragons board game. The dungeon unfolds, sometimes literally, in front of your character as you explore. It is presented in a papercraft style, but our goal is to make it as lively as possible, with rich animations and particle effects.
The papercraft style makes user-created content much simpler. You only need to create a 2D rendering of a weapon, for instance, and the game will take care of the rest. It’s also worth noting that these 2D images are not treated as flat “sprites,” but rather as cut-out pieces of paper with thickness.
