Dungeon Party

While Dungeon Party's currently closed Beta is moving forward and will soon open to everyone, Cyanide and Focus Home Interactive are pleased to share these new images of their free team-based game to celebrate the opening of the official English website.
Dungeon Party is a free PC online game developed by Cyanide and based on team play.
Plunge into a wild heroic-fantasy universe and play against each other in teams of heroes across dungeons filled with deadly traps and monsters to try and collect the treasures they hold.
In Dungeon Party you can create and customize your character with different costumes and objects. A holiday-making sorcerer, a thief straight out of a night club, or a gothic hangman…all styles are possible! Each player can equip his character with different objects and weapons before the battle against opponent teams starts.
You'll have to develop your character through the matches and carefully choose which spells and skills could help the best your team. In order to spice up the game, deadly traps and hunted creatures are scattered throughout the dungeons. These creatures won't make any difference between the teams and protect their treasures with a lot of zeal. Kill monsters will give you more experience points which allow you to buy faster new spells. Bosses and mini-bosses will be harder to beat but will also give you a greater amount of points and, most of all, will help you to seduce the Chest.

Tsunacon (25/01 NL)

In een land met een overschot aan ongeorganiseerde-laat-ons-in-cosplay-door-de-straten-zwerven-tot-in-een-random-park-en-een-fastfoodkeet-meetings is eindelijk nog eens een echte nieuwe conventie die haar kans waagt. Het nieuwe bloed heet Tsunacon en de hoop bestaat dat zij zich eerder zullen inspireren op de openheid van de verschillende Nederlandse fantasyevents of van cosplayconventies uit de hen omringende landen dan op de vastberaden kleinschaligheid die zo eigen lijkt aan 's Ne'erlands cosplayconventies.
Ze hebben alvast geopteerd voor een centrale ligging (nabij Rotterdam) die ook voor niet-Nederlanders bereikbaar is, voor een locatie die 3x meer bezoekers aankan dan waar de organisatie voor een eerste editie op hoopt en voor een systeem waarbij ook aan de kassa inkomkaarten gekocht kunnen worden.
Qua activiteiten is er gekozen voor een zo breed mogelijk aanbod. Animevertoningen, verkoopsstanden (inclusief bring & buy), doujinshicircles, een mangabibliotheek, workshops, videogames (zowel free play als competities) met als topper DDR, kaart- en bordspellen, karaoke, plus een AMV- en cosplaywedstrijd zouden iedereen zonder al te uitzichtsloze wachtrijen moeten bezighouden.
Adres: Zalencentrum / Theater De Lockhorst Sportlaan 13364 AT Sliedrecht
Datum: zaterdag 25 januai 2009, van 10u tot 18u

The Crocodile emperor

It is our great honor to announce the arrival of his esteemed highness, the Emperor of 3D Gaming, Emperor Augustus FitzPatricus. Easily displeased by acts of folly, failed "Rout Saves", and fumbled "To-hit" rolls, countless gladiator miniatures have been sent to their doom by the heartless waggle of his thumb.
This miniature was sculpted by Chris FitzPatrick way back in 2001, as a part of the first Visions in Putty sculpting project, hosted by the 1listsculpting forum. The theme was gladiators, as the movie bearing that same name had just been released in theaters and was fresh in everyone's minds. A few dozen sculptors, both amateur and professional, conspired to each sculpt a miniature on this theme and on the final date all the miniatures were revealed and the artists discussed the details of how they made their creation.
Chris FitzPatrick (being the ham that he is) sculpted his miniature as a self-portrait in the guise of the Emperor of Rome, declaring death for all other entries!
