Montpellier, France, October 3rd, 2022.
Indie developer Artefacts Studio in partnership with Dear Villagers have today released the third and final expansion of their hit RPG “The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos” with “Back to the Futon”.
Out now on PC, with 60% off the base game from Oct. 3rd to 10th, Back to the Futon holds four brand new chapters, filled with shenanigans and epic hijinks, and brings about the conclusion of their adventures in the wackiest of all dungeons.
Back to the Futon is coming to Xbox consoles and PlayStation platforms on October 13th, with the Switch version arriving one week later on October 27th for $14.99/ €14,99/ £11.39.
In Back to the Futon, the adventurers are sent on a quest through time and space to solve once and for all the temporal anomaly that has enveloped the Dungeon of Naheulbeuk. During these time-traveling shenanigans, our heroes will face off against multiple challenges and enemies, including the zealous cultists of Dlul, the drowsy God of Sleep, as they search for the statuette of Gladeulfeurha.
Back to the Futon is an epic undertaking that’s roughly half as long as the base game (around 20 hours). The culmination of everything introduced in The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk and its previous expansions (The Ruins of Limis and Splat Jaypak’s Arenas), Back to the Futon will allow players to reach level 16, offering them several new passive and active skills along with new gear.
“Back to the Futon is a massive expansion that functions as a sort of mini-sequel – and mini-prequel for that matter – to The Amulet of Chaos,” said Bruno Chabanel, CEO of Artefacts Studio.
“By revisiting familiar locales in an earlier era, we were able to expand upon the game’s lore in wild and wacky ways, while further fleshing out our lovable cast. The time travel mechanic allows us to delve deeper into The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk, making it a wholly iconic locale with a rich, ridiculous history.”
“We know fans of The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos have been waiting a long time for this final expansion, but we’re confident the wait will have been worth it,” said Guillaume Jamet, Head of Publishing at Dear Villagers.
“Back to the Futon is a major addition to the canon that brings players to some surprising new places that further enriches all that came before. We thank you all for your patience and hope you enjoy this swan song to The Amulet of Chaos!”
The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos’ is a turn-based tactical RPG chock-full of charm, humour and chaos!
