Attack The Light: Steven Universe Light RPG

Attack The Light is based on Cartoon Network’s fan-favorite animated series, Steven Universe, which is a coming-of-age story centered on The Crystal Gems, a team of magical beings serving as the self-appointed guardians of the universe. Steven is the half human, half-Gem dummy of the group, who’s only beginning to grasp the superhuman abilities bursting out of his belly button – which, by the way, is a red gemstone. Even though he’s neither as smart nor as powerful as the rest of The Crystal Gems – Pearl, Garnet, and Amethyst – he still accompanies them on their epic day-saving adventures. In Attack The Light: Steven Universe Light RPG, you team up as the cartoon’s four protagonists to prevent a mighty Gem weapon from wreaking havoc in the universe, embarking on a journey for the ages filled with worthy foes, spectacular combos, unique attacks and upgrades for each member of the Gem-quartet, and a wide range of explorable locations.

In this adorably mind-bending space adventure, you play as Flux Dabes, a galactic trucker whose latest shipment gets hijacked by an alien wrongdoer called Hewgodooko. You find yourself stranded on an alien planet, Woanope, but immediately embark on a journey to retrieve your stolen cargo, unknowingly entangling yourself in a web of conspiracies aimed at world domination.

You can unlock more than 500 craftable items suited for creating power-boosting gadgets – don’t worry, there’s plenty of room for them in your infinite inventory.

Guild of Dungeoneering

Guild of Dungeoneering is a turn-based RPG game that turns clichés upside down with its gameplay: instead of controlling a single hero or a group of heroes, you build the dungeons around the protagonists by drawing cards from your Guild deck containing rooms, traps, monsters, and heaps of equipment. As you’re building the dungeon, your hero is making his own decisions, picking fights and going wherever he feels like going, thus the goal is to entice, coax and bribe him to clear your dungeons by strategically placing the rooms, traps, monsters and loot you draw from your Guild deck. Each victory will bring you a step closer to restoring the glory of your Guild, and will also allow you to unlock rooms, events, and equipment – the very things that will attract new classes of heroes to your dungeons, assisting you on your quest of becoming the ultimate Dungeon Master.

Guild of Dungeoneering Mobile Launch

Guild of Dungeoneering is now available for mobile devices. Take your dungeoneering on the go starting July 21st. iOS App Store: Google Play Store: Guild of Dungeoneering is a turn-based dungeon crawler with a twist: instead of controlling the hero you build the dungeon around him.
