Dungeon Ward

Dungeon Ward by 8Shade is the newest game confirmed for the Reef platform.


The Game

You are a warden, defender of the capital city of Bohemia. The story starts with you being on a watch around the city. At midnight all of a sudden you feel the earth is slightly trembling. The shaking grows stronger and big cracks open up around you. You see vile beasts coming out of the ground. As a warden, your duty is to defend the city, so you rush towards them.

Suddenly the ground below your feet caves in and you fall into the darkness. You hit your head and everything goes black. After a few minutes you wake up and realize that you are trapped in an old underground dungeon beneath the city. Now it is up to you to find a way out of this place and help save the city.

Dungeon Ward’s development began in February 2018 and is scheduled for release at the end of Q3 2019. Dungeon Ward is a mobile RPG that mixes grid based movement from old school classics with third person view and real time combat.

It is action oriented RPG, where you go through partially randomly generated dungeons and combat various monsters and bosses. Parts of dungeon’s have been created by hand and their placement randomized to form the dungeon's layout. Each level also changes theme, so it doesn't become repetitive as fast.

Dungeon Ward is one of the first real-time grid based RPGs from a third person perspective. It is a unique mix of Dungeon Master and Diablo with some aspects inspired by Witcher, Dark Souls and World of Warcraft series.


The Developer

8Shade is run by František Liška of the Czech Republic. By trade he is a Java business programmer at Eurosoftware but he has always had a love for RPG style gaming.

František prides himself on being an Indie game developer and believes it has taught him dedication and the ability to adapt to a new challenge every day. He got into game development when he had the desire to see a small game running on his phone. He then went on to make a prototype and instantly became hooked. František works solo but is currently cooperating on music for the game with the composer Eduard Jaworek. You can preview his work here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tiREkIQxfwY

František atold us that "This platform really rewards both players and small indie developers for their efforts. I’m glad to be part of it."

Dungeon Ward has also been featured on Indie Gamer Magazine which you can view here: http://www.pantheonnetwork.com/product- ... gitalIndie
