A team of indie developers began work on a visual novel-dungeon crawler hybrid titled Erolon: Dungeon Bound.
In Erolon: Dungeon Bound you take control of a poor, young farmer who, upon discovering a forgotten temple within a nearby forest, decides to become a dungeon looter. His childhood friend, who’s practicing magic, and a wolf-girl paladin, whom he recently met, come to his aid and join him on his journey.
The game is built around dungeon crawling. You will navigate the trio through randomly generated dungeons filled with treasures, power-ups, traps, NPCs, and enemies. Running into an enemy party will trigger a turn-based battle where each of the three characters has access to unique skills. Winning battles rewards the player with experience and improves their relationship with the girls.
While in town materials found in the dungeon can be used for crafting or sold for gold instead. The player may talk to his companions at any point for advice and lore tidbits. As your relationship level increases with the girls, you'll get the chance to initiate new chapters of the girls’ personal storylines, which are told in the style of visual novels.
You can find the official description and sample screenshots of Erolon: Dungeon Bound below:
