Super Dungeon Maker Gameplay

If you ever wanted to create your very own Legend of Zelda-styled dungeons but felt intimidated by video game creation and editing tools, Super Dungeon Maker looks like it might be for you. This upcoming title strips away the complex aspects of coding and provides an easier drag-and-drop design with pre-existing objects and templates.

The dev teams at rokaplay and FIRECHICK were inspired by their love of classic 16-bit Nintendo games like The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and they also cite the ease of use of Super Mario Maker as a big influence. The end result was Super Dungeon Maker, which gives you the tools necessary to create 16-bit top-down dungeons.

It’s a neat idea, for sure, and it looks really cool. Already the game has received high praise from the Steam community following its early access release, and the devs have taken this feedback to continuously work on and fine-tune the game.

Players can build dungeons with multiple rooms, traps, tile sets, enemies, and bosses. You can even add hidden objects for others to discover as they play through your creations. So whether you want to remix your favorite Zelda dungeons or create that dungeon Nintendo never made but that you always wanted to play, it looks like Super Dungeon Maker will provide the avenue to do so in an easy-to-grasp manner.

Of course, if you need some inspiration yourself, you’ll be able to play pre-existing dungeons, as well as anything uploaded by the community. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, Super Dungeon Maker will provide cross-play downloading between Nintendo Switch and PC, so there will likely always be something new for you to check out.

Regarding the game’s playable sword-wielding chicken character, it looks like that’s the only hero you’ll be able to use at this time. That said, the devs did state in the comments of the trailer on YouTube that another character will be added at a later date.

Interestingly, Super Dungeon Maker is also being promoted as a learning tool, with the developers opening it up for use at universities absolutely free of charge. Per the dev team, academic institutions across North America and Europe have already begun using the tool.
