Paper Dungeons Crawler is a coffeebreak roguelike


A true turn by turn classic 16 bits Roguelike with a unique specialization system.

This is a sequel of our first game Paper Dungeons, a few years later in the same realm.

Explore the mysterious Dungeons of Cyndaria and an extensive lore to unearth. A plethora of creatures and magical items are waiting for you to step into ever-changing dungeons, with diverse biomes and challenges.

Defeat Dragon bosses to unleash hidden runes and recover the sacred Seeds of Cyndaria to restore the divine trees.

Dungeons can be unforgiving: be sure to eat and rest in time, use all your abilities wisely. Nothing stops you from skipping bosses to rush and move to the next dungeon, but you’ll also meet true death if you don’t take time to level up your character and abilities.



Each class has access to 4 rune types and casts spells by drawing them on a runic compass.

Make your character unique, based on your gameplay: do you prefer shooting arrows with your warrior? Just use your bow more often, and your “Ranged weapons” specialization will level up, twice faster if you chose the talent “Hunter” when rolling your character.

Our game is similar to classic roguelike such as Nethack, enhanced with a modern inventory and an intuitive fast access to melee, ranged or spell casting course of action.
