During the Guerrilla Collective Digital Games Festival last weekend, developer Gambrinous announced the Guild of Dungeoneering Ultimate Edition, a revamped and improved version of their unique 2015 turn-based dungeon crawler / card battler mashup. the original Guild of Dungeoneering was a very interesting take on several different, well-worn genres. It was a dungeon crawler for sure, but you didn’t really control the crawlers yourself. Instead, you influenced their actions and movements by discarding cards and building the dungeon yourself. When you came into contact with enemies, you had a little more control over the action, but combat was also based on a concept of card combat. There really wasn’t anything quite like Guild of Dungeoneering when it was released, and it felt particularly at home on the touchscreen when it hit cellphone in the summer of 2016. Despite a few quirks, we really liked the mobile version in our review. Get a good feel for the game with this new trailer for the Ultimate Edition release.
As this trailer suggests, and as the title of the Ultimate Edition suggests, this new version will include all of the previously released expansion packs, as well as new quests, monsters, classes, weapons and loot in one shiny new pack. While Guild of Dungeoneering received some pretty big content updates after its release, the mobile version stayed untouched for quite a while, so an updated version is very welcome. What is not entirely clear is how exactly this updated version will be delivered to existing customers. Brand new app? Update to the existing app? Something else? On Twitter, Gambrinous says they will soon be explaining how everything will work, but whatever they decide, “will be really good for current owners.” It should also be noted that Guild of Dungeoneering Ultimate Edition does not explicitly use platforms Confirmed appears to be a lockdown, and mobile platforms also seem likely, but it would be very cool to see the game on consoles too. Just enjoy the trailer now and look forward to more information about this Ultimate Edition, hopefully in the near future.
