Super Dungeon Maker launches on Switch today
The next best thing to Zelda Maker
rokaplay, in partnership with FIRECHICK, is proud to announce that its 16-bit top-down level editing sandbox Super Dungeon Maker is out today on Switch for $19.99 / €19.99. Inspired by The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Super Mario Maker, Super Dungeon Maker lets players try their hand at crafting their own love letter to SNES era classics.
Build your very own dungeon in just a few steps! The easy to navigate dungeon creator allows players to make exciting stages in mere minutes, whether they’re using a mouse & keyboard or Joy-cons. Choose how many levels, items, enemies, traps, switches, and hidden objects you want and create your very own pixel art-style dungeons of varying themes and difficulties. Then give them a spin as you tackle the fruits of your creativity!
Once you’re satisfied with your dungeons, share them with your friends, family and community with cross-platform level sharing! Unleash your creative streak as a dungeon creator and place as many foes, floors and secret paths as you like. Make the journey more difficult for your friends with countless traps and hidden spikes.
Having been on Steam Early Access since February 2022, Super Dungeon Maker has already amassed over 3,000 brilliant, varied stages from its passionate and talented community. Don’t know where to start? Try out the built-in dungeons for inspiration. These are only a sample of what’s on offer, as Super Dungeon Maker’s toolkit means the possibilities are endless!
Super Dungeon Maker seeks to be more than just a game, but also an educational tool. That’s why the developers have chosen to make its dungeon editor 100 per cent free for academic purposes. The easy to use level creator has already been used in several universities across Europe and North America to teach students the ins and outs of level design. Educators who work at a university can contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Literally the first thing you see every time you boot it up is a disclaimer message that warns you that the game is still in development and is considered a “preview” while encouraging you to share feedback and bug reports with the team.
I hate how common it is for games to launch in an unfinished state now. I understand modern games are complex and not everything is necessarily able to be caught prior to launch, but releasing it on a commercial store and charging people $20 to act as beta testers for your product is just gross.
And even worse, it's nowhere mentioned on the eshop page.
