Goblinz Studio’s reverse dungeon crawler Legend of Keepers was launched last spring for PC and consoles. Six months later, it’s about to receive its first DLC pack, Return of the Goddess.
What do we mean by “reverse dungeon crawler”? Well, in most roguelite games, you enter a dungeon, uncover treasure, get as far as you can and battle increasingly powerful monsters. Legend of Keepers examines the genre from the evil monsters’ POV. What’s it like for them?
The world is full of heroes, and they’re invading your dungeon and taking your treasure! But you’ll show them..by positioning your monsters strategically and setting deadly traps, you’ll stop those meddlesome do-gooders right in their tracks — permanently! As an entry-level dungeon defender, you have a lot to prove to your superiors….do a good job exterminating the humans and you’ll be rewarded with higher positions at Dungeon Company.
Anyway, after a modest and completely voluntary sacrifice at her altar, the hippo-like Goddess is back, and she brought with her a truckload of content, including:
• Goddess master
• 5 missions
• 3 Sarcophagi to choose from when getting a Promotion
• 10 Mummies monsters
• 3 traps including 1 rare trap playable with all masters
• 5 artefacts
• Free content for everyone: 2 new monsters, 2 new traps and Pyramids environment!
That’s right: you get stuff for free even if you don’t buy the full pack — though the Steam page for this DLC does not mention how much it costs. Legend of Keepers gets the Return of the Goddess pack September 13 on PC; consoles will get it later on.
