A Victoria game developer announced June 27 it has been working on a Dungeons & Dragons video game.
Eric Jordan, chief executive of Codename Entertainment and a lifelong Dungeons & Dragons fan, and his team have been working since last fall on Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms, an official Dungeons & Dragons game.
It is expected to be released this year.
“This is a huge coup. It’s a dream come true,” said Jordan, who first played the table top board game Dungeons & Dragons in 1981 as a 12-year-old.
“Dungeons & Dragons launched all the role playing games. It was the genesis of it all.”
Dungeons and Dragons was first published in 1974 and is now published by Wizards of the Coast, a subsidiary of Hasbro.
Rough estimates suggest more than 20 million people have played the game while it has been responsible for more than $1 billion in book and equipment sales.
Codename, with 18 employees, has a licence from Wizards of the Coast to produce the game, which will be set in the Forgotten Realms universe.
“That’s one of the iconic D&D settings, like Middle-Earth is a setting for the Lord of the Rings,” said Jordan.
“Dungeons & Dragons has a very rich world with characters and monsters, and people will get to see and interact with some iconic characters.”
The game takes players on a quest with the goal of recruiting champions, increasing their strength and power, completing storylines and advancing to become more powerful, collect more loot and better gear."

It's an "idle-clicker" game - I don't really know what that means exactly but it sounds like whatever it is will be pretty light.

It looks somewhat cartoonish going just by the image of Minsc and the silhouette of the other characters (the last HAS to be Jarlaxle and the 3rd from the right is Drizzt). Maybe its like the old Final Fantasy games on game boy?

Interesting. Wonder what they'll come up with and where.
