Zx Dungeon, an unfinished engine/game from 2017

Post by Ralf » Sat Mar 24, 2018 6:50 pm

Not my work but I think it's the best place to show it here.

So some interesting project appeared last year on Facebook. Unfortunately the author, using a nickname Dworkin, announced that he will be no longer working on it :(

Which is a shame as it had a big chance to become a megagame.

See Zx Dungeon, a 3D RPG maze game, clearly inspired by the famous classic Eye of the Beholder:

We have some similar games on Spectrum like Bard's Tale or Bloodwych but this is certainly looking better then them.
Bloodwych for comparison:

And here's the demo. Press Enter to run the game. Interface text is a mix of English and Czech (I believe) but there are controls shown at start
(Q W E A S D for walking ) so you should make it.

That looks gorgeous. Did the original author ever explain why he was stopping working on the project?

Impressive stuff.

Where is it described as "ZX-Dungeon"? I can only find the author calling it "3D-Dungeon"

I believe it was some text at start. But I'll check it when I'm back home.

See the text in red, visible for about half a second after you run the game from Basic

But of course either ZX Dungeon or 3D Dungeon is just a working title. If full game ever appeared it would be called differently, I believe.
