    Through some snappy introductory dialogue your character who must be named 'Owen' for some reason, finds a magic shovel. It is the answer to your village's problem, an overabundance of monsters.

    So you set out to create your very own underground slum housing estate for monsters, via your magic shovel. With a little start up capitol from the town mayor.

    The village very conveniently sells you materials (different rooms you can build), and the tools to begin earning your lively hood (weapons and magic). Each night monsters move into the rooms you place on the current floor you're renovating.

    By day you visit your underground slum housing estate for monsters and shake down your tenants for the rent, earning money, items and ingredients (which you can sell to the town store). You re-invest your money by buying more 'rooms', until such time as the particular floor you're currently working on of your underground slum hou dungeon holds enough monsters to attract a 'boss' monster which guards the stairs down to the next level/floor.

    Ingredients are used in different meal recipes which some female eye candy you never asked, cooks for you each evening. Each recipe permanently increases Owen's statistics (strength, intelligence, constitution etc). Occasionally your 'woman in the kitchen' is sent to the mayor's house to 'perform services' that result in him investing more funds.


    Its a shady landlord sim...

    Tried starting it up last night, and after a lot of uninteresting text, I was brought to a sort of town map. I had no clue what I supposed to do, pressed either the Y or X button -- I don't remember -- and it brought up a list of "how to"s. I promptly shut the game off. I'll come back to it, but I just wasn't in the mood for a game that requires me to do work. I usually do that before playing a game.

    I am now on floor 8 (of 10, I believe) so if anyone is actually playing this and wants my help/advice on a level.. let me know.

    As far as the game goes, it isnt all that good, yet at the same time, what can I say.. Im addicted.

    okay, so i went and built 6 extra single rooms, had a battle and boom! the floors suddenly became tiled stone.
    which made me remember the previous level which turned blue.

    so i'm thinking this may or may not be some sort of indicator:
    once you've fulfilled the requirements to attract the boss, the floor may physically change!

    Interesting thing I discovered:

    This may be common knowledge for some of you, but I found it interesting.
    As I was trying to get the floor 8 boss to appear, I had spent tons of money and went into the dungeon and it still hadnt appeared so I turned off the game, restarted in town, bought more rooms went back into the dungeon and before I even placed the room down, the boss spawned.. so I was like wtf so I turned off the game, turned it back on and this time the boss didnt spawn again. Turned it off went back in and nothing. Turned it off and went back in and the boss spawned!

    So I am guessing what is happening is that when you enter the dungeon different amounts (and/or types) of creatures are spawning (some like to spawn in hallways etc) so if you are sure you have met all the requirements it couldnt hurt to reload the game once or twice just to make sure you dont waste money that doesnt need to be wasted.

    Hope that helps some of you [​IMG]

    Thanks for the info [​IMG]

    Sure looks more interesting then the vids do
    Sounds a little bit like Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon, i mean you had to make money, build monster houses, go in dungeons, clearing them by killing the boss, gathering stuff in the dungeon
    but thats only a good thing i guess because i was really addicted to that game xD
