KickStarter: Legend Of Dungeon
Legend of Dungeon is about looking for treasure in a dungeon full to the brim with monsters. Legend has it there is a massive treasure all the way down on the 26th floor. Your quest is to go down there, get the treasure, and make it back to the surface alive.
Unlike many other Kickstarters, You actually get the opportunity to try out a demo of the game before pledging! the demo runs in unity web and can be found here: http://robotloveskitty.com/LoD/Demo.html obviously there will be a few bugs as the game isnt completed but it still allows you to sample whats to come.
- 1 to 4 Player Cooperative Gameplay
- Real-Time Beat’em’up combat
…except with 2 or more players, you become a ghost, and have to collect spirit orbs to resurrect yourself. You’ll come back with low health, but you’ll be back in the game. Once you’re all dead though, thats it, game over man.
- Dynamic Lighting and Real-Time Shadows
Legend of Dungeon uses 3D Normal Mapping on low-res pixel art to create dynamically lit sprites.
- The Artwork
Based on the character designs of Sebastiaan van Hijfte (svh440 of r/PixelArt fame). Each character is adapted and animated for use with the dynamic lighting.
- Dynamic Music
The music generates from tracks composed by David Dirig, it dynamically assembles based on the types of enemies you are confronting.
- Randomized Content
Dungeon Layout, Monsters and Item placement, Potion Colors and Devices are all randomized each playthrough.
- Online Score Board
describing how you died and how much gold you collected.
- DRM Free because no one wants that.
- Windows Mac and Linux
Legend of Dungeon is made with the Unity game engine.

Robot<3Kitty is a husband and wife team working full time to create awesome games. The developer, Calvin (Robot) spends almost every waking hour hacking out code and dreaming up new worlds, when not in front of the computer he’s staring into space working in his head. His muse, Alix (Kitty) has been taking care of evil marketing and press releases, and other scary things Calvin doesn’t like to think about… but lately she has been more active creating art assets for future games.
We are kickstarting the game to pay the composer, purchase Unity Pro, buy a new dev machine, and of course, more coffee.
