Indie Dungeon Crawler StarCrawlers Revealed, Brings A Sci-Fi Twist To The Popular Genre
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
Independent game studio Juggernaut Games have just announced their first title – StarCrawlers. The dungeon-crawling genre is one that has been done to death in the world of gaming, knights, wizards and more have graced our screens more times than I care to count, but it looks like Juggernaut Games have found a refreshing way to bring it back with StarCrawlers. The game is a sci-fi dungeon-crawling RPG, you run a crew of talented fixers taking shady jobs on the fringes of space where your choices dynamically change the way you explore the environment, fight your foes, resolve encounters, and how your story ultimately unfolds.
“Whatever their particular skillset – be it hacking, smuggling or advanced ass-kicking – StarCrawlers are individuals who specialize in taking jobs others won’t. Your team will venture into procedurally-generated environments full of lethal enemies, unexpected events, and deadly traps. Conspiracy is afoot, and you may stumble upon valuable information – how you choose to use it is up to you.” – Said Juggernaut in a recent press release.
As you progress through the dungeon, you’ll face tougher and tougher enemies and be tested against elite bosses, requiring you to make strategic decisions about your team build, their combat specialization and their gear. Team build will also have an impact on what you can do while exploring, with each character class bringing their own specialized skills to bear to help you avoid obstacles, deal with NPCs, and navigate hazards more effectively. Interestingly the game is played in first person, with RPG and turn based elements, exploring, procedurally generated environments and stunning graphics that really make it stand out from the crowd.
