From the individuals that brought you Penny Arcade’s On the Rain Slick Precipice of Darkness, Dwarven Delve intends to be the world’s first activity puzzle dungeon crawler where the player not just manages the characters, but also the layout of the dungeon.

It certainly is an intriguing idea as it eliminates the linearity of timeless dungeon crawling.
