'Dungeon Souls' Integrates Steam Workshop, Mod Support

by Rainier on March 7, 2018 @ 10:00 a.m. PST

Explore dungeons and fight huge bosses in Dungeon Souls, a top-down roguelike hack-and-slash dungeon crawler.

Each level is completely procedurally generated so every playthrough is guaranteed to have unique environments and encounters. Search for and activate all the marks placed in each level to unlock the dungeon portal and escape from the Redeemer. Scavenge various items and upgrades to counter the dungeon's dark forces and challenging bosses. You must survive. Hurry.

Dungeon Souls was inspired by Nuclear Throne, Risk of Rain, Overture, BitVenture and Shoot First.

This update brings hero balancing to the game (with updated abilities), as well as modding support and re-make of voice lines!

Modding Support

We have added modding support for Dungeon Souls! Hurray!

Currently, the modding feature is limited to items only, but if players like it a lot and we start seeing quite the engagement, more features are to come! Here is a small roadmap of what we have planned for modding support, in case the community wants more of it:

  • Enemies
  • Pets
  • Arcane Forge
  • Dungeon Levels
  • Traps

Check out the Dungeon Souls Wikia[] for more information, as well as the game's Steam Workshop page!

Game Elements

Changed Redeemer's behaviour due to feedback concerning the amount of time available in a dungeon before Redeemer appeared. On easy and normal difficulties, redeemer will take twice the amount of time to appear (x2 multiplier). Also, the base amount of time it takes for the Redeemer to appear has been increased by over 60%.

Voice Acting
Changed both Skeleton King's and Slime Gargantulum's voice lines! We've also changed Slime Gargantulum's voice and revamped Skeleton King's!

Hero Balancing

We've taken a look into the feedback obtained from the hero balancing survey! From an analysis, we found out that every hero seems to be both over powered and under powered (suggesting that it depends on the player's play style). However, there were some heroes who were more "unfairly" under powered when compared with other heroes. We also observed general feedback in regard to abilities and cooldowns. As such, here is our hero balancing update! We hope you guys like it!


At max passive level (and, proportionally, all levels below):

  • Changed passive health from 75% to 50%.
  • Changed passive damage from 40% to 30%
  • Changed passive crit from 25% to 20%
  • Changed passive defense from 150% to 120%
  • Changed passive resist from 140% to 120%

Bug Fixes & Feedback Changes

Details of this section:


  • Fixed a bug where redeemer would spawn in boss rooms.
  • Fixed a bug where Slime Gargantulum would stop attacking after using certain abilities.
  • Fixed a bug where the active items rocket and missile could crash upon use.
  • Fixed a bug where difficulty was not being quicksaved.

Known Issues

  • In some systems (both operative system and hardware components), the game has severe lags spikes for brief periods of time. This usually has to do with malfunctioning input devices, but a fix is being developed. If this occurs to you, please send an email to with the operative system you have and hardware, as well as any relevant information (the time you were playing at and what were you doing).
  • Currently, to some players, Steam functionalities are not working under Linux systems, as well as a few in-game functionalities (such as minimap). We are working into resolving this issue.
  • During co-op, heroes have a different currency than the one specified on the HUD, resulting in some characters being able to buy certain items that the other player can't (due to gold spent). This will be fixed in a future patch.
