Tiny Epic Dungeons is a 1-4 player dungeon crawl game, and the latest installment in the Tiny Epic series from Gamelyn Games. It will launch on Kickstarter on February 23.
In Tiny Epic Dungeons, you play standard Fantasy characters (a Dwarf fighter, a Half-Orc barbarian, an Elf sorceress and a Dark Elf rogue), each with their own different stats (four resources: Health, Focus, Defense and Movement, and three skills: Strength, Agility and Intelligence), a unique ability, and specific starting gear. Later in the game, a character can equip two weapons, an armor, two side items, and learn two spells.
The goal of the game is to defeat the final boss, drawn at random, before your lantern goes out. The party explores the dungeon by revealing tiles that may trigger traps or spawn goblins and minions. Goblins differ from the other minions as, if they accumulate up to a certain number, you automatically lose the game.
Heroes can engage in various actions such as searching a room, disarming a trap, attacking, or casting a spell. The different actions rely on dice-based skill checks. By searching rooms and disarming traps, you can find spells and loot to better equip your character, including specific sets of equipment, or gather new sources of light to push back the time tracker.
Finally, Tiny Epic Dungeons will be the first in the series to introduce miniatures of 28mm size, one for each character.
