[Update]: Three years after launch, Dicey Dungeons has just added a chunky free DLC - Reunion.

If you're a fan of strategy-focused roguelite games, you might want to check out the freshly updated Dicey Dungeons. As the name would suggest, the entire game revolves around dice and dice rolls, to the point that even the main characters themselves are sentient dice! However, while the premise may be wacky, the actual gameplay is remarkably fun and far more tactical than one would expect from a game based on dice rolls.

As for the briefly mentioned update, Version 1.9 has brought with it nine new remix rules to help keep subsequent playthroughs fresh and interesting, including one that allows literally any enemy from the dungeon to appear as a beefed-up boss. The update has also added improved modding support, fixed over 200 bugs, as as well brought in an assortment of quality of life upgrades. So while there might not be a lot of new content here, the various fixes and better modding tools should make for a noticeably better experience regardless.

Also, to coincide with the release of the newly enhanced modding tools, the developers have highlighted some of the more interesting community creations, just in case you're in the mood for something a little bit different. You can find the list of mods, as well as the full patch notes, over at Steam.

Finally, I'll leave you with the original launch trailer for Dicey Dungeons. It should give you a pretty good idea of what it's all about, how silly the whole thing is, and whether it's even your kind of roguelite game. Enjoy!
