Developer Laughing Machines and publisher tinyBuild are delighted to announce that the all-new interdimensional sci-fi action-RPG Undungeon is coming to Xbox One/Series X for purchase and via Gamespass, and PC via Steam and GOG.com on November 18th.
Originally announced at PAX West in September 2018, Undungeon offers PC and Xbox players a vivid, fast-paced action RPG with elements of frantic roguelite gameplay as players control a god-like creature in fast-paced dynamic combat, ridding the broken world of the encroaching monsters, and using them to build your Herald into the ultimate weapon.
In Undungeon, players step into the role of a ‘Herald’, tasked to set foot upon post-apocalyptic earth and undo an interdimensional cataclysm. The membrane between dimensions tore, and seven versions of earth merged into one. Billions of lives were lost in an instant, those that survived called this event ‘The Shift’. Players must shoot, claw, and smash through hordes of monsters, searching among the ruins for ways to build the power of their Herald so that they might one day undo the shift, restoring the earth to its respective dimensions.
Death is not a concept that can keep a Herald down for long. Each venture across the warped earth brings new knowledge, experiences, and abilities that will ultimately aid the Herald in its mission. Players will be able to carry over their cosmic mission between attempts with a combination of ingrained abilities and permanent earned upgrades from the time’s destiny turned its back on the Heralds.

Across the broken worlds of Undungeon, death is never the end. In order to rebuild the world, you’ll need to first tear it apart.
“Developing Undungeon was a challenging, yet fascinating process. We hope that we were able to create a game that can pleasantly surprise players with its universe, story, and mechanics. We put a lot of effort into each mechanic and tried as much as we could to reveal the potential of the idea.
We hope that all those who play Undungeon will be able to get away from the daily hustle for a while and immerse themselves in an unusual, bizarre, and intriguing world of the multiverse, heralds, gods, and galactic cataclysm, in order to create and choose the fate of the new multiverse.” said Vlad Maxim, Lead Game Designer at Laughing Machines.
Undungeon will be released on November 18th, 2021 on PC via Steam and GOG.com, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S for USD19.99.
Undungeon is an action role-playing experience that brings back the spirit of old-school action/RPGs wrapped in modern design. Restore the order in all dimensions, influence and determine the fate of the worlds, create and decide what will happen in the new Multiverse.
Colorful pixel art aesthetics:
Each tree, bush, or rock is hand-drawn, each enemy has dozens of carefully crafted animation frames to create a one-of-a-kind visual experience;
Mind-bending science fiction story:
Several multidimensional versions of Earth were suddenly merged together, shattering one another in a cataclysmic event known as the Great Shift. This event damaged the fabric of time and space itself, seemingly beyond reconstruction.
You, a Herald, will join a secret interdimensional organization — Herald’s Undercover Bay, or simply H.U.B., created by Dharma to remedy the aftermath of the catastrophe;
Heated real-time battles:
Control a Herald — almighty hero created by God. Combine their powerful melee and ranged attacks to vanquish your enemies. Heal carefully so that foes don’t steal your remedy, use movement, various buffs, and debuffs to gain the advantage and defeat your rivals;
Implant different organs into the body of your Herald to acquire unique combat enhancers and passive abilities. Gather and equip nodes and runes to make your Herald godlike. Express yourself, create a build that fits your playstyle perfectly, be it companions, throwable weapons, critical or DoT damage, and much more;
Deep crafting systems that allow you to disassemble basic materials and create from received resources unique organs, weapons, gear, and consumables that will help you to define your unique playthrough;
Vast open world:
Explore distant lands beyond belief and meet their exotic inhabitants — merchants and bandits going about their lives regardless of where you go. You can trade with locals, recruit them to help you in battles, or even destroy their camps. Between missions, you can recover, gear up and rest in H.U.B. — a base located in a neutral space expanse between dimensions;
NPC interaction system:
Decisions you make as a Herald will affect the fates of the characters you meet, as well as whole dimensions.
