As I was lurching about my neighbourhood, dressed like a scary poll tax collector, I banged on a door and readied myself for my classic Halloween scare-a-thon. To my surprise, it was Terry Cavanagh’s mansion. He gave me a hearty laugh and tipped a new Halloween-themed Dicey Dungeons update into my plastic pumpkin. His cute deckbuilding roguelike is now 100% far more Halloweeny for the subsequent week, all for totally free! Let’s see what he gave me, shall we?
The update adds new episodes for the Warrior, the Witch, and the Inventor characters. The Warrior’s episode is a fairly regular challenge, but with a couple of Halloween twists that are secret (i.e. not in the press release). The Inventor’s new mode will begin them off with “all-round very terrible equipment”. The Witch’s episode is six puzzles lengthy, with set spells and dice, and you only have a single turn to beat each and every enemy. Thrown into the fights by Lady Luck herself are the Mummy, Demon, and Pumpkin Spice baddies, and the prior monsters are all in adorable outfits. There’s also a new puzzle mode, exactly where the player is presented with a premade spellbook that they need to have to operate out how to master.
The update is reside on Steam and Itch.io The patch notes say the update will final only a week, till November 4th. Do not be as well upset, as they’re a sneaky way of displaying off the game’s upcoming modding tools. When the modding method is added through a future update, you will be capable to dig up the Halloween content material and animate it like Dr. Frankenstein.
