The Dungeon's Loop

Author Comments


WASD/Arrow Keys - Movement

Mouse - Aim

Left Mouse Button - Hit

Scroll Wheel or Q/E - Scroll through your available items (sword and keys).

Note - The controls are very buggy on Legacy Edge. The bug is in the browser itself and unfortunately there doesn't seem to be anything I can do about it. For the best experience I recommend using the newest versions of Firefox or Chrome, as I can confirm that it works perfectly there. Sorry for the inconvenience.


Conquer this cursed looping dungeon that you've found yourself in.

You start without any items (sword or keys).

Your health slowly depletes over 40 seconds, at which point you restart at the beginning, but you do keep whatever items you've collected.

You can destroy crates with your sword, and open doors with their respective keys.


This is just a tiny game I made in 72 hours for Ludum Dare 47. Despite countless attempts at it, this is my first ever completed game for the jam and I'm pretty happy with it. This is also my first completed jam game in the Godot engine.


The amazing music was made by my friend Svarog, although it was made before the jam, so I excluded the game from the music rating, even though I love the soundtrack. You can listen to the whole song over on his SoundCloud, where he has tons of other quality content.

The pixel art is for the most part a modified version of this tileset made by 0x72. I originally planned for that to only be work-in-progress art, but I ended up not having enough time to redo the art myself, which is why I also excluded the game from the graphics category, but it is a really cool tileset so I'm happy with it.
