'Dungeon Hearts' Announced - Screens

Dungeon Hearts features a nostalgic blend of classic RPG elements fused into a vibrant match-three puzzle game for a wholly unique experience.

“Dungeon Hearts has been a labor of love for a while now. As an indie it can be tough bringing your project to a publisher for fear they are going to strip away the developer's personality from the final product,” said Cube Roots founder Chris Pavia. “It has been quite the opposite with the guys over at Devolver Digital, it's been great working with people who embrace the weird and quirky.”

The partnership on Dungeon Hearts is the result of the Devolver Digital’s “Pitch Fork Parker”initiative launched at GDC 2012 and the first in a series of games signed by the publisher’s extraordinarily unreserved executive.

“The original pitch was for Dungeon Hearts to be medieval brothel simulator,” claimed Fork Parker, CFO of Devolver Digital. “I recommended we shift development towards the puzzle/RPG hybrid because medieval brothel simulators just don’t sell anymore.”

Key Features:

  • Puzzle/RPG Hybrid – Align gems in the match-three puzzles system to wield devastating attacks and conjure powerful magic in a fast-paced adventure through a mystical world.
  • Limitless Adventure – Face a unique battle sequence with every new adventure and face off against a bestiary of dozens of creatures lurking around 16 unique environments.
  • Brimming with Secrets – Power-up through 99 character levels and unlock new heroes, special abilities, dungeons and even alternate soundtracks to create new scenarios in Dungeon Hearts.
