Dungeons of Dredmor expansion news and features

A new expansion to the hit indie title Dungeons of Dredmor is due out on August 1st. The makers of the award-winning dungeon crawler announced this on their webpage back in early July but I totally missed it. This game is certainly a huge surprise favorite of mine so I can't wait for some new things to be tossed in there. It is also a year old as of July 11th.

While you are here quickly check out this DoD survival guide:

Wondering when you can begin exploring the forgotten dimensions of lost wizards? Then gather ’round, because Gaslamp Games is pleased to announce that the Conquest of the Wizardlands expansion for Dungeons of Dredmor will be launched on August 1st.
Some features will include:

Pocket Dimensions & You: A Room Without a View


Once a key is acquired, a new UI element appears which allows you to jump into the pocket dimension as if you were using a skill. So: The Pocket Dimension gives you an effectively infinite inventory with the gameplay-relevant friction of a 32 or so turn cooldown on using the portal key.

Bankster skill

The Bankster is, naturally, a rogue class skill but acts a bit like a wizard in that it uses a resource to create spell-like effects. This resource is of course Zorkmids aka your money.
