The Game

Popup Dungeon is a roguelike dungeon crawler for PC that lets players create any weapon, any ability, any enemy, and any character they can imagine. It’s a papercraft version of an enchanted board game with tactical, turn-based RPG gameplay in the vein of Final Fantasy Tactics. It can be challenged alone or through hot seat or online multiplayer.

The game play is something like Final Fantasy Tactics or X-Com meets a Dungeons and Dragons board game. It's turn-based and the movement is handled on a simple grid. While Popup Dungeon will not be "twitch-based" or require lightning reflexes, we hope to make the action as lively as possible, with fast-paced, decisive combat.

It features all manners of game mechanics you can expect from games like these, and maybe even some you don't expect! The extensive customization and user-creation system will allow players to put nearly any strategy they can imagine into effect.

Popup Dungeon released on Steam on August 12, 2020.
