Simplicity does not mean simplicity

But what is it? SubDungeon anyway, you ask? It’s a cunning and unique dungeon crawler and a classic role-playing game where the protagonist Kimuto, a cute kitten armed with a sword, is on a quest to face the tough business world on his first day on the job. Sound interesting? Well, how about making it a full retro experience with 1-bit visuals and catchy music and sound effects? Still not sure? Well, what if I told you there’s a lot of humor, interesting characters you can interact with and chat with, and gameplay from other genres (like… arcade and rhythm levels or even 3D units)?

I know what you’re thinking. What is this, a praise song for a game that sounds like it’s from the GameBoy era? (It was difficult) But let me tell you SubDungeon is a prime example of a game that doesn’t look special at first glance, but sparkles and shines when you give it a chance.

Retro Spirits are forever

The game was created by Josyan, a solo indie developer who has worked on similar games before The Zeroptian invasion and Tamiku. participated in the work on it Alex Kidd in MW to do again. He decided to team up with composer and sound designer José Ramón “Bibiki” García so that together they could create a project that would be a great homage to retro classics (such as The Legend of Zelda or dragon quest). The old game formula is met with a modern, polished execution here, both in terms of gameplay, audio and visuals, so this is a pretty good chance to get into an old-school gaming groove.

While writing this article, I wanted to take the opportunity to get a brief comment from Josiah himself about the concept of the game. Here’s what he told me:

“It’s actually a small experiment, when I started it was more like a blank slate where I could put mechanics and jokes and things I liked. I also think it’s a very personal project because it contains a lot of my thoughts and messages. I’m all classic I’m inspired by dungeon crawlers, but the game has so many different mechanics and mini-games that I’d be lying if there weren’t some great gameplay moments in there. will like it! “.
