New turn-based roguelike Dimensionals announced by Mino Games

by on July 9, 2024

Developer Mino Games has announced a new roguelike turn-based RPG called Dimensionals with a playtest on July 10th.

The team says that the game “melds turn-based strategy with roguelike elements against a backdrop of old-school Saturday morning cartoons”, adding that you will have to “master dozens of unique heroes with hundreds of skills to unleash”. The heroes can have skill cards equipped before each battle, and there’s a Steam playtest coming on July 10th, which you can sign up for, here.

Here’s the trailer announcing the game, too:


In the Dimensionals multiverse, the tyrannical King of the Specters has unleashed an apocalyptic attack, leaving the once-peaceful Dimensionals scattered and every Dimension teetering on the brink of annihilation. You rise as a courageous young Dimensional, humanity’s last hope. Embark on a whirlwind adventure across shattered dimensions, rescuing stranded allies and rebuilding the Dimensional army to defeat the Specter King once and for all.

Experience a thrilling journey through a hand-crafted story campaign enriched with dynamic comic book-style cutscenes that follow each of the Dimensional Heroes and harkens back to old-school Saturday morning cartoons. Each level unfolds as a fast-paced episodic adventure, where players must build different team strategies to counter unique enemies, puzzles, and challenges. Each level features roguelike gameplay, meaning no playthrough has the same hero skills, and players must build different crazy combos each time. With many intricately designed levels to conquer in each of the Dimensions at launch, Dimensionals delivers a deep narrative-driven experience that seamlessly blends tactical rogue-like gameplay with engaging storytelling and replayable depth that’s accessible to all audiences.
