Dungeon of Flowers

When the earthquakes finally stopped, villagers peered into the fissures that had aerated their fields. Below, they could sense only darkness… and the faint aroma of tulips.

You are Knight-Queen Laetitia, and you have resolved to harrow these newly awakened caverns—so that no threat may emerge to endanger your people. But the denizens of the Dungeon of Flowers have been waiting for you, and their plans are far from what you expect…

Made by Matt Surka for A Game By Its Cover 2016.

Inspired by Dungeon of Flowers, a Famicase cartridge designed by Jeremy Hobbs (Ribbon Black).

Important Notes
