Loot MMO Game Jam: The Haunted Keep

Are you looking for a 3D dungeon crawler to raid with your friends?  Check out my Loot MMO Game Jam submission: The Haunted Keep!

The Dungeon-Delver's Guide To The Haunted Keep

It's not sci-fi, but it IS a building-block for future sci-fi development. 

The Haunted Keep is a dungeon-crawler in the tradition of games like Gauntlet and Dungeon Master.

Players advance through a complex dungeon, seeking the exit while defeating enemies, searching for secrets, and collecting treasure.
