Who and why?
The Dungeon Experience is being developed by Jacob Janerka and Simon Boxer. Jacob is best known as the developer of Paradigm and the Seinfeld game pitch, and Simon Boxer is an indie veteran and studio director, who recently released the popular roguelike card crawler, Ring of Pain.
The original idea was inspired by games like Firewatch, Gone Home, Life is Strange, Stanley Parable and playing Dungeon and Dragons. These games often had some guiding voice over, specifically Stanley Parable and Firewatch. We imagined what it would be like if you instead had a Dungeon Master who while trying their best, lacked the budget and skills to deliver a polished experience.
