Dicey Dungeons

Dicey Dungeons writing / for Terry Cavanagh


Dicey Dungeons is an upcoming videogame from Terry Cavanagh, Chipzel (music), Marlowe Dobbe (art) and Justo Delgado (programming). The game follows six human contestants who have chosen to take part in Lady Luck’s game show, each trying to win their heart’s desire: one wants to become the strongest man in the world, one wants to eliminate the need to sleep, another wants wealth, another fame.


It’s a fast-moving, cheerful, heavily replayable game, and I’m currently working on the story and writing the script. The whole narrative and world needs to fit into spare corners and moments: short cut scenes, single lines from the creatures who live in the dungeon, slowly changing contestant profiles, sneaky jokes. It’s a lot of fun!
