Ridgewood, NJ, February 10, 2011 - Kalypso Media USA, Inc, in cooperation with Atticus Black USA, is pleased to announce the "Young and Restless" heavy metal tour, featuring fantastic up-and-coming bands, with thirty-three tour dates between March 18 and April 24, 2011. 

To celebrate the launch of its newest title, Dungeons , and the "Young&Restless" tour sponsorship, Kalypso Media USA has launched a "Get Evil" contest with grand prizes including concert tickets from Atticus Black USA, gaming peripherals from Alienware, a cutting-edge video card from ATI and much more.

"Extreme games and loud music have always been a part of our lives. They complement each other and make the experience that much more fun. We could not be more honored to have a great company like Kalypso Media, and an amazing game like Dungeons, on board with us for this showcase of up-and-coming talent here in the USA," said Mark Bubb, Director of Marketing at Atticus Black USA. "Atticus Black is able to bring great tours to fans for an affordable ticket price because of music supporters like the team at Kalypso Media. Make sure you pick up your copy of Dungeons today, it is epic!"

"We’re extremely proud to sponsor some of the future household names of American heavy metal music, and are confident that the many talented artists participating in this tour will supply a very fitting alternate music track by which players can design and then rule over their maniacal creations in Dungeons," added Mario Kroll, Vice President, Kalypso Media USA.

Dungeons follows the misadventures of the foremost of all Dungeon Lords, who spends his time luring heroes into his labyrinthine creations with the promise of treasure and a good fight -- only to be trapped by his ingenious devices. Our protagonist falls victim to a devious plot hatched by his vile, nasty and thoroughly vicious ex-girlfriend. As a result, he finds himself at the bottom of the underworld hierarchy and the top of the dungeon pile. In his world, that is about as bad as it can get. 

Our lord must have his revenge, and make his way back down the dungeon levels to his rightful place -- but first he must deal with his new bosses, the three despicable Dungeon Lords who stand in his way. At his disposal are his dim-witted goblin minions who dig tunnels and build rooms to lay out his lair and trap ever stronger and braver heroes who dare to enter, not forgetting to plot his revenge against his ex-girlfriend and his new bosses who think it’s great fun to bombard him with useless tasks. It goes without saying that a malicious and sneaky creature such as our Dungeon Lord has more than a few tricks up his sleeve. Being Evil has Never Felt this Good!
