Enter the Gungeon

A unique mix of a classic dungeon crawler and a dynamic, two-dimensional shooter from the debuting American studio, Dodge Roll. We play as a hero seeking for the legendary weapon that can change the past of a distant planet. To achieve his goal, he must explore the eponymous ancient temple where many dangers and surprises await him. Featuring a top-down view, the game tasks us with exploration of randomly generated levels of the temple. We come across numerous enemies and bosses, as well various shops and friendly characters that will help us in our journey. The game’s combat system is based on classic twin-stick shooters, allowing us to use environmental objects as weapons in addition to an already vast selection of guns and gadgets.

Enter the Gungeon for PC / Windows is a two-dimensional combination of a classic dungeon crawler and a shooter game, in which the players traverse a randomly generated dungeon. This is the debut of an American studio called Dodge Roll. The studio consists of five people, all of them experienced gamedevs, who decided to build a team, and this game is the outcome. Enter the Gungeon was created in cooperation with Devolver Digital - one of the most important publishers of the indie industry.


In Enter the Gungeon for PC / Windows, the plot is simple and serves merely as a reason to begin the adventure. The player assumes the role of a vagabond who travels to a distant planet in search of a legendary weapon, which is supposedly capable of changing the past. Having reached his destination, the protagonist decides to infiltrate the titular Gungeon - a mysterious, ancient temple full of surprises and threats.


The gameplay mechanics were inspired by many popular roguelikes and 16-bit console RPGs, but the game also draws inspirations from modern-day hits, such as Dark Souls. The player explores subsequent levels of the temple while encountering numerous enemies and bosses, as well as different shops and NPCs who offer help in the journey. All the elements of the titular Gungeon are procedurally generated.

In Enter the Gungeon for PC / Windows, the combat system resembles popular shoot'em up games utilizing both analog sticks. It means that direction of fire doesn’t depend on the direction of movement and the other way around. The game features dozens of firearms, including different blasters, as well as more fantasy-driven and spectacular tools of destruction. Using the environment to one's advantage in combat is a strategically important aspect of the gameplay. For instance, the player can flip a table using it as a temporary cover, throw explosive barrels or drop chandeliers on the enemies. The protagonist is very sensitive to attacks, thus the player is forced to maneuver between volleys of bullets and explosions all the time. Using a dodge roll which makes the protagonist untouchable for a very short period of time plays an important part here as well.

Technical aspects

The game offers two-dimensional, retro visuals and an isometric camera. Enter the Gungeon was inspired by the aesthetics of console games which were in their prime in the first half of the nineties.
