Listen up, dungeon keepers: indie developer Artefacts Studio in partnership with Dear Villagers have revealed all new gameplay footage for their upcoming diabolical dungeon creator Naheulbeuk’s Dungeon Master. Coming to Steam and the Epic Games Store this summer, this latest entry in the acclaimed The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk franchise lets players create and customize their own zany, accursed dungeon.

This latest trailer shows off the madcap mayhem that comes with creating the most dastardly dungeon possible. Get a glimpse of the hiring (or capturing) process, take a gander at possible worker training regimen, and peruse some potential layouts and decorations you can use to create the most productive dungeon possible!

The great sorcerer Zangdar has hired you, the gobelin steward Reivax, to build, manage and defend your dungeon in this satirical heroic fantasy universe of The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk. Set years before the tactical RPG and comic books storyline, the Dungeon of Naheulbeuk is in bad shape, close to bankruptcy, and falling apart and under the surveillance of the Dungeons Fund. It is now your job to rebuild everything, replenish the account’s  balance, restore the reputation, recruit  employees, and attract adventurers. You can handle that, right?

As the new dungeon master, you’ll have to design and decorate your dungeon, growing it from a shaky establishment to an infamous lair. Manage your workforce by recruiting minions (or hunt for laborers), avoid a strike, and create a positive work environment. Better make good use of that torture room! The great thing about working for a baddie is that you needn’t be bound by pesky morals. Leave the princess saving to heroes; dungeon making is a villain’s game!

Of course the greater the dungeon’s reputation, the more adventurers will seek to raid it. Lure them to their doom by catering to their weak points (Dwarves love beer, Elves love stuffed animals, and Barbarians love… their muscles). Uncover new lore, make your way through a fully narrated campaign, and tinker around to your black heart’s content in this infinitely replayable sandbox!
Naheulbeuk’s Dungeon Master will feature a soundtrack by The Dungeon of Naheulbeukcreator John Lang. In addition to creating the series as an audio saga, then expanding it into novels, comic books and games, Lang is also a musician and a singer in his own right with his musical group The Naheulband. Lang will also be featured as a voice actor for the game’s French audio track.

Naheulbeuk’s Dungeon Master is such a fun one to play around in, and playing as a baddie allows players to get in touch with their wild side and let the mischief ensue,” said Bruno Chabanel, CEO of Artefacts Studio. “We hope this first look at Naheulbeuk’s Dungeon Master’s gameplay gets players excited for all the carnage they can cook up when the full game releases later this summer!”
