Dungeon Party : A Crazy Video Taken Live from Our Dungeons !

Cyanide Studios and Focus Home Interactive are pleased to offer an exciting new video of Dungeon Party -- giving you a complete glimpse at what is waiting for you in this crazy game where fun is king! This video will show you some of the available character customization options, along with the highly charged atmosphere that's omnipresent inside the game's dungeons, where teams of heroes are fighting to capture the Chest.

Dungeon Party is a free PC online game developed by Cyanide and based on team play. Plunge into a wild heroic-fantasy universe and play against each other in teams of heroes across dungeons filled with deadly traps and monsters to try and collect the treasures they hold. In Dungeon Party you can create and customize your character with different costumes and objects. A holiday-making sorcerer, a thief straight out of a night club, or a gothic hangman…all styles are possible! Each player can equip his character with different objects and weapons before the battle against opponent teams starts.

You'll have to develop your character through the matches and carefully choose which spells and skills could help the best your team. In order to spice up the game, deadly traps and hunted creatures are scattered throughout the dungeons. These creatures won't make any difference between the teams and protect their treasures with a lot of zeal. Kill monsters will give you more experience points which allow you to buy faster new spells. Bosses and mini-bosses will be harder to beat but will also give you a greater amount of points and, most of all, will help you to seduce the Chest.
