Dungeons and Dragons fans, unite! Okay, now all four of us are here, how's it going? How much money have you spent on really expensive dice Kickstarters in the past few months? Yeah, us too. It's becoming a real problem. Wait, why did we call this meeting?
Oh yeah: The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos, a title we already hate typing and we've only typed it once, has just been announced for Switch! Drawing its inspiration from the excellent XCOM and the divine Divinity: Original Sin 2, The Dungeon of Nibblebork is a comedic fantasy turn-based tactical RPG, and if that series of words doesn't excite you, then you might be in the wrong place.
The Narglebarg series was first created by French author John Lang as an audio comedy series that parodied tabletop role-playing games and heroic fantasy tropes, and now it's finally a video game.
With seven "classic role-playing game characters", including Ranger, Elf, Dwarf, Barbarian, Magician, Ogre, and Thief, and more than 100 enemies to fight, The Dungeon of Newfoundland looks like it has a ton of content to keep us playing for hours. Just like those marathon 5-hour D&D sessions where the players ignore all the DM's hints and instead decide to buy a pub and flirt with the evil dragon!
The game's description hints at interesting and surprising secrets to be found with the game's hidden and destructive objects, which will "turn the tide of battle" with status effects. Anyone who's tried to to the Divinity: Original Sin 2 fight with all the oil and the fire will either be clapping their hands in excitement or trembling in the corner of the room in fear.
But there's even more good news for lovers of tabletop nonsense: The Dungeon of Narrative will star Queen of the Nerds Felicia Day as one of the characters - she of Geek & Sundry, The Guild, and Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.
The Dungeon of Nomanssky will be coming to Switch this Summer, although it's been out on Steam for a while if you want to give it a go ahead of time.
How are you feeling about

OH COME ON.
THERE IS ALREADY TOO MANY GAMES COMING OUT IN THE FIRST HALF FOR SWITCH.
now there is MORE.
RIP my wallet
DAMMIT @ANOYONMUS YOU BROKE THE CHAIN
Not sure how to feel about it. Being french canadian I know of Naheulbeuk's stuff from the very earliest days but also... I recall a lot of it is stuff that'd likely have aged very poorly today.
I stopped following it for a long while as I began to be less involved in tabletop stuff however so I don't know how much they remained stuck in the same type of humor VS how much they might adapted with the time.
Judging by the screenshot it sounds like it still very much has elements of toilet humor though.
@HotGoomba It looks very good
Le Donjon de Naheulbeuk was rather big in the early/mid 00s in French speaking countries, if you were into this, as @Ludovsky mentions (deux minutes du peuple ? )
That game has been supposed to arrive for years, if not a decade now. We'll see.
Hopefully it doesn’t threaten to set my Switch on fire like Divinity did every time there was oil around especially that oil rig fight.
Why cant we just get divine and beyond divinity???
Wow, that takes me back. Hopefully the transition from an audio adventure to videogame will work out better than the comics or the boardgame
How many different names did you give the game in that article .....? Anyway, I have it on Steam & can assure you all that the game is good!
Did you even play D:OS2?
I had two really short Dungeons & Dragon's campaigns, that were really funny.
The first one, my buddies and I had started at level 7 and we had some really good gear. We were imprisoned on a ship that was on the way to take us to a prison. Well, we were able to escape on a life boat but before we could get out of range, one of the ship's mages shot a fireball at us. Well, I was the only one that was a mage also. I thought I could use telekinesis to take a big fish out of the water and into the way of the fireball. The problem was I said fish instead of a big fish or something big. The fireball charred the fish, went thru it and blew up the boat and um, we all drowned. All our really nice gear, is now at the bottom of the ocean. :/
The second campaign, we were investigating this island that was an ancient civilization that had died off, a long time ago. We all saw this pyramid, with stairs and decided to investigate the top of it. When we got to the top, I saw this orb or crystall ball looking thing. Being a mage, I sensed that this orb was used before, with a spell, a long time ago. I asked the DM if I could recast the spell using the orb. The DM said sure, and I recast the spell and then this massive amount of energy exploded and killed us all and every living thing on the island. Oops.
“ a title we (I?) already hate typing and we've (I’ve) only typed it once”
Um, did they not teach you (guys?) Copy + Paste at University?
