Seldom do we see dungeon crawlers with such unique and intersting aesthetics and mechanics. It is evident that the developer has a deep love for this genre and the impact this game will have on the genre is massive. Traditionally we see the usual brick dungeon variety crawler experience with I-hit-you-and-you-hit-me style combat, but once in a while a game pops up that breaks (and improve) this mold.

New to this year's game jam, we introduced a panel of judges, each assigned to check out all the entries and select their top five favorites. Unexpectedly, we received nearly 200 submissions, which took a considerable amount of time to play through. The judges unanimously agreed that the overall quality was exceptionally high this year, with numerous outstanding games that show great potential to be developed into full-fledged commercial products.


Among all the submissions, the judges collectively selected 19 games, which demonstrates a remarkable alignment in their choices.

The Dungeon Crawler Jam 2023 is done and it's been the biggest and bestest so far! With more than 1800 participants and almost 200 entries it's officially now one of the big jams. I never in a million years would've thought that would happen in such a niche genre and with so many specific rules :)


This year the jam produced an amazing amount of great games, many of which I hope will be developed further into fully fledged commercial games. 


A huge congratulations to the top 3 games from the community voting.

The Dungeon Crawler Jam 2022 has been a great success. I thought following up last year monumental success was going to be difficult but this year we had an even greater submission ratio of 18% (12% last year) and a massive amount of ratings. Not to forget, a whole bucket load of great new dungeon crawlers!
