Game description

Auto-cannibalism. Demonic Seduction. Occult Rituals. Bloodfeasting Worms. This Book Is A Dungeon has it all and more. This dark, horrific Twine-based dungeon crawler pairs edgy interactive fiction with grisly pixel art and light RPG elements. Prepare to be disturbed, titillated, and savaged by unholy denizens aplenty in your quest to navigate this sprawling narrative-driven labyrinth bristling with otherworldly doom.


Part of the intended challenge is in experimenting to see where different paths and choices lead you. It's impossible to experience all of the content in a single runthrough. Experiment, be bold, and uncover your fate, wherever it may lead!

This game is not for the squeamish or faint of heart.


This Book Is A Dungeon was originally created as an interactive fiction and self-publishing experiment. It was initially launched as a game inside a Kindle book that served as a developer diary documenting the entire process for creating the game from start to finish. As part of the Steam Edition, you can access a free download link for a PDF version of the dev diary within the main menu.

Key Features:

  • Experience a grim story-driven horror adventure

  • Solve cryptic and disturbing puzzles

  • Die in dozens of horrible ways

  • Enjoy light RPG elements, including combat and inventory

  • Discover multiple endings

  • BONUS: 40,000 word game dev diary

Good rpg fun


This book is a dngeon is a very fun to play semi text semi visual rpg that i really enjoyed when i went on vacation in Hungary and didn't have access to a good computer.Since it is mostly a text rpg it doesn't need a great computer to run well which is the main reason i love it.Gameplay-wise it is well made and offers tons of different ways to approach every situation.However it is missing sound and music which is the only negative thing i have to say about it.

Well written dark Lovecraft style twine game


This Book is a Dungeon is a text-based horror twine game, meaning you will read and choose highlighted options in the text either to act as a choice, as a way to get more information about what is going on, or just to continue the text. There are occasionally pictures to go along with the text but this is primary going to be a game involving reading and choosing the options you want, if you are looking for something that is more action packed or animated this won't be for you. There is a map of the dungeon that you are in that will show you what room you are currently in as you make choices. The game is well written and I enjoyed playing through it, the only negatives were the lack of music and sounds and having to get through story segments you have already seen when you have to replay old areas when you make a wrong choice. If this is a style of game that you think you would enjoy it is worth trying out.
