Dungeon Train is a VR Dungeon Crawler set on a train with infinite procedurally generated carriages. Inspired by an episode of adventure time
Simple but addictive: explore endless and varying carriages, items, enemies and terrain. Immerse yourself in the scenary and story of the enigmatic train.
Developed by award winning VR developer Brennan Hatton, Each run takes you further into the train, further into the universe. A game designed outside laws of physics, to go on forever.
With each new adventure, you may learn more about the train, its passengers and its inhabitants. You may learn the answers to questions you didn't even ask and don't want to have solved. Questions like:
What is this place?
What does it want from me?
Why am I here and should I even stay?
Am I doing this to myself?
Play your way! Lose yourself in the serenity of an endless and satisfying gameplay loop, in the rich and provacative stories of the passengers who came before you or lose yourself looking for the darkened, shadowy answers that are always just out of arms' reach!
This is your story too, after all.

Support it now, and save!
The game is still in early development, if you support it now you will get access to the full version on release at no extra cost. The game is currently heavily discounted while in development and the price will continue to rise as it is updated. All support goes directly to improving the game, and all supporters get a chance to be involved in shaping the direction.
This game is in development, and under pre-release.
Development is focused exclusively on the Oculus Quest until release.
The game is built using VRIF for high quality physics based interactions on the Oculus Quest. Current integration is about 15%, but the core interactions are there. While it already feels good, anyone who has tried the demo of VRIF knows there is a lot more coming soon!
There are so many exciting and fun direction this project could go, I am working closely with the early community to shape its direction.
Reach about the latest on the development blog.
Installation of the application for your Oculus Quest is done through SideQuest.

Join the Discord, Join the Community
If you're unsure about if it is at a stage you are ready to support, Join the discrod to learn about the development status, and talk with the existing gamers and developer.
Each update is heavily inspired by the community on discord. Input is often added to the game right away, sometimes the day of. This ensures the game becomes what you want to see it become.
As the support from the community increases, I plan to open up access for modding and/or official community content integration.
