Cyanide announces the dungeon editor for Dungeonbowl™

Jim : "That carpet of mushrooms around the helmets seems really weird..."

Bob : "Well, you see Jim, it was a magic goblin who designed this dungeon... So you shouldn't try to understand."

Paris, May, 20 th 2012.

Dungeonbowl™, the online game inspired by Games Workshop's® Blood Bowl® universe, will include a dungeon editor!

Thanks to a cleverly designed set of floor tiles, the original Dungeonbowl™ boardgame allowed a player to build his own dungeon for a game. At the end of the match, the tiles could be stacked up and used to build a completely different dungeon for the next game. Given that the layout of the dungeon is a key element in this underground version of Blood Bowl ®, Cyanide believed it was necessary to offer the same freedom of design in its video game adaptation.

Official dungeons created by Cyanide's Dungeonbowl™ team offering all the fun of the Dungeonbowl™, will be included in the game. However, the real enjoyment will come from those settings floor plans created using the dungeon editor. Players will be able to design the most Machiavellian of layouts, combining different playing surfaces, walls, decorations, assorted items… and share it online.

By offering a dungeon editor in Dungeonbowl™, Cyanide wished to let the collective imagination of the Dungeonbowl™ community run wild creating endless dungeons to play Blood Bowl ® in!

Dungeonbowl™ is a tactical and multiplayer parody of fantasy American football meets the Warhammer® world. The game is scheduled for release in the second quarter of 2012 on the Windows PC platform.

About Cyanide:

Cyanide is an independent and privately held video game studio. Based in Paris, it was created in 2000 and has risen to become one of the most productive game development studios in France. In 2007 the company opened a facility in Montreal, Canada and the headcount across both sites is currently 100.

The studio is best-known for its "Pro Cycling Manager" series of games (console and PC versions being released each year). However, it has more than one string to its bow, as games such as "Loki" (Action/RPG, 2007), "Blood Bowl" (sport/fantasy/RTS, 2009/2010) and "Dungeon Party" (F2P MMOG, 2009) have proved. These titles offer a rich pool of characters drawn from a wide variety of game universes.

In 2009, Cyanide secured the video game adaptation rights to George R. R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” series. As a result, a tactical, strategy game was released for the PC in the 3rd quarter of 2011 and an RPG will be released on PC and next-gen consoles in the first half of 2012. Early 2012 will also see the release of the "Confrontation", a tactical RPG, based on an IP acquired by Cyanide in 2010, and “Of Orcs and Men”, another RPG, jointly developed with Spiders.
