Today, Goblinz Studio has announced that they have released a demo for their roguelike title, Legend of Keepers: Career of a Dungeon Master (say that three times fast). The 'Prologue' will last approximately two hours.
Legend of Keepers will have players join a "Dungeons Company" and climb the company ladder while trying to stop heroes and protect the treasures of their company. To protect the company, players will hire monsters and manage employees while setting their traps. Events like employees going on strike are things that players must always be aware of. The demo will introduce the mechanics, lore building, and overall game strategy for those interested in the title.
Players will be a CEO and play the game like a reverse Darkest Dungeon. However, instead of conquering dank dungeons, you will instead be protecting them from heroes. As the player becomes more comfortable and the weeks begin to pass them by, there will be different tasks for them to complete in order to improve their defenses. When the heroes come, they will be able to control their 'workforce' in either kill them or scare them to death.
Essentially, players will manage their business by hiring and training employees and buying and upgrading their traps. Those traps will be used (along with monsters) to counter the enemies that show up to ruin both your day and your company. Players will have to be tactical, carefully choosing which foe they want to strike first, as well if they should debuff them or buff their own workers. Once the battle is won, players will then have to go back to managing their company, waiting for the heroes to strike again. Eventually, wile players will lose, they will also be able to see how well they did on a global leaderboard, which is pretty cool.
