You know me, I can’t get enough of games that let you make your own stuff and encourage gamers and folks to be creative at heart. Games that let folks dabble into stage/character creation are always good for those who don’t want to pay monthly fees or can’t afford certain expensive tools or programs to make their own stuff. Well, publisher and developer Pyromancers seek to help gamers make their own stuff with Dungeon Painter Studio.
Released on February 26th, and now open to the masses, Pyromancers’ Dungeon Painter Studio brings map creation to those who seek to make their own stages, or concept art and wish to see it come to fruition. The map editor tool comes loaded with a fist full of content and layers to easily create whatever lies in the back of your mind, as noted below.
“Dungeon Painter Studio is a powerful encounter map design tool, with a lot of features: Layers and groups Easy import of custom art Export to multipage pdf for print 1 inch, 1.5 inch & 1 cm grids Square and hex grid types Filters (Drop Shadow, Glow, Bevel, Tint…”
As of now, quite a bit of folks are taking to the editor seeing that they are able to map out designs for stages and make them in a way that they couldn’t by hand. A lot folks also say that this program is good for Dungeon Masters when making role-playing games since they can create stuff on the fly.
Here’s some of the feature that you will find in Dungeon Painter Studio:
- Layers and groups
- Easy custom art import
- Export to multi-page PDF for print
- Square and hex grid types
- Filters: drop, shadow, glow, bevel, tint, etc
- Editable objects
- Terrain brush tools
- Responsive interface
- Sketch import
- D20 random generator dungeon import.
Now that you know some of the stuff and what is what, you can watch the older teaser trailer for Dungeon Painter Studio showing in-editor features.
Hopefully the editor opens up and supports Steam Workshop so that the community can help out and make the editor grow, because mods/alterations by the community is a good way of creating longevity in a product and acknowledging those who seek to help said project grow.
If you like creating stuff, making stages or you are a Dungeon Master who needs some help making a map, Dungeon Painter Studio is out now on Steam Early Access for $14.99. More information can be found on this once Greenlight game by heading over to pyromancers.com.
