Also, you can read our open beta preview of the game:

The first thing that stood out about Happy Dungeons was its art style. All of the characters look absolutely hideous, but in a sort of charming and goofy way. I definitely wouldn’t describe the game as being beautiful to look at, especially as it’s no technical marvel, but there’s something about the look that I just dig. The game’s plot is kicked into action via a cutscene that shows a princess getting kidnapped in a war-torn world. It wasn’t exactly breaking new ground, but there was enough slapstick humor that I found myself getting into what was happening on-screen.

Once I had control of my character, I found out that Happy Dungeons is a pretty basic action game. I was able to swing my character’s sword as much as I wanted with a basic swipe attack, and the other face buttons were dedicated to unleashing special moves. I only had two of these moves unlocked initially, but the game does a pretty great “abili-tease” moment near the end of the tutorial that shows off the rest of them. Rounding out my skillset was a God of War-style dodge that I could use to quickly get out of the way.

What are you looking forward to in Happy Dungeons?
