This game is currently in the Humble Choice for September 2022, this is part of my coverage of the bundle. If you are interested in the game and it's before October 4th, 2022, consider picking up the game as part of the current monthly bundle.
D&D humor for good or bad.
I hate this game’s name because I’m sure I’m butchering it but Dungeon of Unnecessarily long name is based on a French D&D podcast of a similar name, though obviously in French. A group of 7 adventures go into a colorful dungeon and work their way through a series of encounters with the goal of loot, loot, and more loot. The combat here is good, and the progression of the game will keep the player engaged, with one of the party members usually being swapped out for a visiting character. There’s English voice acting that sometimes works, though I’m showing one that didn’t.
The real problem is the humor and writing here aren’t great. If you’re a fan of the podcast, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this title, and if you love D&D jokes, you’ll probably get a kick out of this, however, I struggle with this. I played this for Game Pass, but replaying it now made me realize the core issue. These are not new jokes, A custodian named Jan Hitor, a dwarf shouting “Nothing goes over my head”, Dwarves and Elves fighting, a cowardly thief… Someone likes these jokes as the game is popular, but I found them tired.
Pick this up if you like the comedy, though I recommend you watch someone play this for half an hour and then make a decision. Some people like this, but personally, I didn’t enjoy either playing for four hours or playing it again here. On the other hand, if you do like the humor the tactical gameplay is great, and there are four different difficulties so there should be the right challenge for however you want to play this game.

I covered this game as part of my coverage of the Xbox Game Pass for April 2022
A strategy RPG with humor… ugh that humor.
They only mention the name of this game once so far so I probably got this wrong. Anyway the Dungeon of hard name to pronounce is here, and it’s a rather solid Strategy RPG where players have to fight their way through encounters for the story. It’s far more story than random encounters. I think every encounter here is scripted. After the tutorial section, where you keep gaining your initial party after they were split up, the story switches to a point where a random character joins your party, replacing an established character, then you get into a fight which you win, and that character who joined leaves. Then you find another character and rinse and repeat.
The other side of the experience is there’s a lot of writing here. It’s written in a style fans of D&D might recognize from when they’re hanging around and playing D&D and telling stupid jokes or making fun of a campaign. It works with friends because it’s the in-jokes and humor you’re used to. Honestly though, the writing here doesn’t work for me. The jokes are usually weak, but it also has a large party, and almost every conversation has to go around and every character has to say something, usually trying to be funny, but again falling flat.
Pick this up if you like Strategy RPGs if you like this humor that’s fine but after a couple of hours I was finding it to be torturous and without the writing, the fights lacked a purpose. If you like jokes about D&D Tropes and pop culture references, this might work. It’s based on a French podcast but I struggled with this writing. The thing is some people love the style of the writing, so maybe it’s me.
