If you are a fan of tracking games, set aside some time to play Dungeon Brah with friends. It certainly makes you laugh while crying tears of laughter or tears of pain and frustration.

As you make your way through the dungeon, you should avoid Kevin the dungeon beast when you’re weak, then fight him for the treasure when you’re OP.

To do so, you must gather your heroes, a group of maulers, wielders, and hoarders who help you as you crawl through the dungeon and slay the beast.

Donate $20 for the base version on Kickstarter.
