Dungeonbowl Announced

Cyanide Studio announces Dungeonbowl, an online game expected to launch for Windows PCs before the middle of this year using characters from Blood Bowl, as it transports this fantasy game based on Warhammer and American football to the inside of a dungeon. A preliminary Dungeonbowl Website offers forums, and the game also has pages on Facebook and Google+. We have some screenshots, and the following announcement:

Dungeonbowl is the next exciting Blood Bowl experience, set in the fantasy American Football inspired game world already adapted as a video game by Cyanide. The key difference between Dungeonbowl and Blood Bowl as is rather obvious from the name, is that Dungeonbowl is played in a dangerous dungeon!

The wizards created the Dungeonbowl as they wanted to know which Magic College was the most powerful. The game introduces some subtle modifications to the standard Blood Bowl rules. A match is still played between two teams, but each side is composed of three races. For example, the roster of a Rainbow Wizards team contains Wood Elves, Halflings and Humans. The second difference is that the first team to score a touchdown wins the match. This task is made significantly more difficult by the fact that the ball is hidden in one of six treasure chests, five of which are booby-trapped with an explosive spell. Last, but by no means least, movement within the dungeon is both facilitated and complicated by teleporter pads. These allow players to magically zap from one position to another; a mishap, however, can lead to a player being zapped out of the match. As with Blood Bowl, the game is driven by dice and each player plays in turn.

Dungeonbowl continues Cyanide's successful collaboration with Games Workshop and their rich and varied Blood Bowl world. The gameplay should therefore delight existing Blood Bowl fans as well as offer a gateway to this zany parody of WarhammerŽand American Football for fans of tactical sports gaming.

This sounds like a mash-up of Blood Bowl and Knights. Knights is pretty fun, and you can download the remake of it for free. Just google 'knightsgame'. Has free online multiplayer and all. It's a bit antiquated, being a faithful remake of a 1994 game, but still fun.

While I love Blood Bowl, and enjoy the occasional Dungeonbowl, I wish these games were made by some other company. BB and BB:LE are loaded with bugs and BB:LE has a fatal bug that causes it to crash on my main gaming rig, even after I sent the devs detailed debug info on the problem.

I also hoped Blizzard would get the BloodBowl license.

I've never tried Blood Bowl as much as I wanted to because it was DRM laden even on Steam. I'm sure this will be the same.

Still have the boardgame which I prefer to play over this.

PC Implementation wasn't too horrible. Compared to the console versions it was actually fairly well done.

Sounds interesting. Too bad their implementation of Blood Bowl was pretty bad, especially the online component. Very buggy too.
