Dungeon of the Endless is a blend of tower defense and roguelike with RPG elements and an emphasis on challenging gameplay. The game joins developer Amplitude Studios' other titles Endless Space and Endless Legend. This time around, a group of heroes must make their way through a series of randomly-generated dungeon rooms, all while protecting a special generator. Creatures will try to stop you from finding the exit, attacking in waves while you try to protect your own skin and the generator supplying your team.
Players will encounter a series of puzzling defense encounters but will also have the option to strengthen their heroes through an RPG-style customization system. Collecting resources and research are important, since heroes can use skill trees to specialize in areas like combat, defense, or even skills that encourage generator survival. The game will feature over 30 heroes, and some players might need them. If the group dies out or the generator is destroyed, that's it - game over.
