Cyanide Studios have traditionally picked up licenses to convert many loved fantasy worlds & boardgames into video games. They were the guys behind the BloodBowl conversion in 2009.
A popular spin off from the BloodBowl boardgame was DungeonBowl. Cyanide are bringing this to PCs very soon as a stand alone, multiplayer only. Lets take a look at the DungeonBowl System Requirements...
The engine is the same as that used by the original BloodBowl so DungeonBowl hardware requirements are still minimal.
DungeonBowl Minimum System Requirements
OS : Windows XP / Vista / 7
CPU: Pentium 4 2.4Ghz / Athlon 2400+
RAM: 2 Gb
GPU: 256 MB, DirectX 9 and Shaders Models 2 compatible
Unlike BloodBowl, your team can be made up of different races to face off against another team in....thats right, a dungeon. Using teleports to whiz around the dungeon arena you will have to find the spiked ball hidden inside 1 of 5 chests. The other chests are likely boobytrapped. The first team to score wins.
As DungeonBowl is riddled with complex variables, like teleporters and non-standard pitch shapes, Cyanide have opted to make this game human vs human only. Consequently, it can be picked up for just £10, although you may need to make sure a buddy also has a copy if you are going to play online with someone.
DungeonBowl is a turn based game and will be available in 3 languages, French, German and English.
DungeonBowl releases on 8th June 2012. Although if you pre-order Dungeon Bowl before the 01/06/2012 you will receive early access to the game!
