Dungeon Runners was a fast-paced action MMORPG from NCSoft that used tongue-in-cheek humor alongside familiar MMO game mechanics to provide players with an amusing and entertaining gaming experience. The game was free to play without limitations, though an optional monthly subscription was available for added benefits. Gameplay was very much like Diablo, with instanced dungeons, only three character classes, and no healer class. Dungeon Runners was shut down in January of 2010.
Come January 1st, 2010 Dungeon Runners will be shutting down. In a letter to the community on the official Dungeon Runners website, DR Producer & Lead Programmer Stephen Nichols informs us in a brutally honest, and yes, even slightly humorous letter that Dungeon Runners is simply not "cutting the mustard" and will be shut down.
