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.
WARNING: THIS GAME WILL KILL YOU. OFTEN.
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 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.
