Launching on April 14th: Defeat monsters and acquire knowledge in DUNGENIOUS

Test your knowledge (and your might!) in DUNGENIOUS, an “ingenious” turn-based dungeon crawler that mixes RPG mechanics with flashcards containing real-world facts and stats.

Created by Austrian dev Noizoo Games, Dungenious is packed with 50 different topics built right into the game. You’ll get a wide selection of subjects from geography, mathematics, music, art, languages, and much more. If none of the built-in topics interest you, visit Quizlet to create your own flashcards. Just load them into the game and you’ll have your very own custom quiz :)

Attack a Red Book Maki and gain new knowledge that you will use as your weapon against the dungeon’s monsters. Sleepy Wooden Deer awake when you cross their path; Piranha Rats move fast and gnaw away at the letters in a quiz; Jelly Ghosts are unaffected by obstacles and can walk through walls; and the Greedy Monkey will rotate your quiz answers to confuse you -- stealing your skills if you take a hit!

To progress, you must answer the quizzes correctly. The right answer will allow your character to land an attack; getting it wrong will leave you open for a counter. Collect “Genius Points” as you defeat monsters to deploy spells -- such as the Ring of Fire, a burning ring that sets enemies alight and clears the path ahead. Opening chests gets you a different kind of quiz: you now have three answers on the left and three questions on the right. Can you match them? If you do, you’ll unlock new powers and upgrade your abilities to take on the game’s heavy-hitting bosses -- such as the massive Slimy Slug or the fearsome Stack Rats :)
