Dungeon Deathball is a compact, turn-based, tactical ball sport with random elements and permadeath.

Guide a team of slaves in a deadly game to win their freedom, and face off against savage monsters who inhabit the dungeon.

It's quick to pick up and play, casual enough for players who aren't hardcore fans of tactical games, but gives a decent challenge so that you're always one step away from becoming floor wax.


In the cruellest corners of the dankest dungeon, the fearsome Mad Lads gather their slaves. And in their raucous rampage, they challenge the weak to a bloodsport most brutal...

The game? Deathball.

The reason? Barbaric entertainment.

The prize, should the slaves survive? Their freedom!



  • Simple turn-based tactics on a grid.
  • Pick up & play rounds that can be finished in a few minutes.
  • 'Rogue-like' elements: randomised challenges with every game, and when your players die they're gone forever.
  • Learn the rules: not everything is random. Some things are entirely predictable once you've learned the patterns, allowing you to make well-informed tactical decisions.
  • Recruit unique, random characters and unlock their special skills. Then lead them to their doom.
  • Variety of fearsome enemies posing unique tactical threats.

Can you survive until the grisly end?
