Official description[edit | edit source]

Key Features
  • Insane Customization: Create your favorite heroes, toss a sphere of annihilation at a politician, or turn your cat into a heavy-ordinance hairball launcher, the only limit is your imagination.
  • Multiple Game Modes: The game includes fast-paced rogue-like runs, multiple story-driven campaigns, and hand-crafted challenges.
  • Endless Content: Many games boast procedural content, but Popup Dungeon’s easy-to-use creation systems allow for inexhaustible handcrafted content.
  • Game Creation: Tie a few nodes together to create your own games; from classic RPG adventures to personality quizzes and interactive fiction, you can do it all -- no programming knowledge necessary!
  • Persistent Gains: Collect charms to power up your party and delve further than before.

Gather your strength, craft new weapons and allies, hone your strategy, and take on The Wizard's tower.

Premise

A strange being, referring to itself as “The Wizard,” has issued humanity a challenge in the form of this game. It is accompanied by a letter which reads:

To the able minds of Earth,

What I am is not important; what I do is important. I challenge beings in contests that play to their greatest strength, and now I’ve come for you.

Put down your wearisome weapons, cast off your boorish bodies, and draw humanity’s sharpest blade: creativity. Wield it against mine, if you dare.

You will learn that the difference between fact and fiction is the power to decide which is which. This power I freely grant to you, so that you may pit the mightiest heroes, the most powerful legends, or anything else you can wring from that skull-stuffing you call a brain against me. I await you atop my tower.

You may lose as often as you’ll tolerate. But worry not, I threaten no violence; however when I win – and I will win – your creativity shall be my trophy. Without it, humanity is surely doomed to a dim end. But no pressure… after all, it’s just a game.
