One of the unsung and often forgotten champions of old-school dungeon crawlers has just been re-released on GOG. The Dark Heart of Uukrul, a party-based, fantasy-themed crawler that sports top-down combat reminiscent of the Goldbox games but with a strong focus on an intricate and well-developed dungeon with some rather good puzzles.

Thanks to enterprising GridCartographer user rikkles (@RikRetro on Twitter) you can now natively play Apple II games through GridCartographer, as he added support so that GridCartographer and AppleWin can hook up with each other (similiar to how the developer of GridCartographer created a custom DosBox version to hook up GridCartographer with Dos games in the past).

Developer Cannibal Interactive just released a dungeon crawler on Steam with the eloquent title It's Six Random Characters and a Single Floor Dungeon, That's the Whole Game which is less a name and more the sales pitch of what you're getting here. I bought it and checked it out because a game like that looks more like a curiosity or gimmick than anything else.

I remember the days when mapping dungeons on graph paper was half the experience when playing dungeon crawlers. Fast forward three decades and I'm stilling playing the same dungeon crawlers but now I don't have the same patience to draw the dungeons by hand. Luckily there is a program which allows me to map dungeons quickly, and depending on the game, maps the levels automatically when I move. Grid Cartographer is the most useful and feature complete software for mapping dungeon. I can't crawl without it.

This might turn into great news for us all, as Japanese company Drecom has acquired the copyright and trademark rights, domestic and foreign, to the Wizardry intellectual property.

If this means that they will develop a new first-person & grid-based game under the Wizardry label remains to be seen. Drecom is a mobile game developer and maybe their line of past games suggests that we should expect?

If you haven't been living under a rock the past couple years you should already know this, so I'll just leave this one here for all the rest of you. In a not so distant future (or so we hope) all the gridder loving people with C64's will be able to crawl an amazing port of the uberclassic Eye of the Beholder. For a while now Andreas Larsson and his team of artists have been working hard on the port which currently looks fantastic and appears to play equally well!

If you ever watched some Let's play videos of gridders on YouTube then you are probably already familiar with MaeL. He's done a bunch of them in the past. Now he's gone and done one better - he's set a new world record in Eye of the Beholder speedrun and it's a staggering 5m 58s! It blows my mind that this gem of a game can be completed in that short amount of time!

For as long as I can remember I've loved playing dungeon crawlers games. For an equal amount of time I've wanted to make my own, and I did, numerous times. If I had a dollar for every proof-of-concept, tech demo or unfinished game project then.. well.. I wouldn't be rich but I'd have a substantial chunk of cash :) On April this year it finally happened! I finished a game! The game is called The Ogre King and albeit small in scope, I finished it and I released it. This makes me an official game developer, and it only took like 35 years, lol!
