History

The idea of Almost Epic Adventures™: Neverlooted Dungeon originates from a short novel based on an adventurer trying to escape a mysterious dungeon full of traps that Arnaud wrote in 2015.

In December 2018, after four years of developing Almost Epic Adventures™: The Goblin's Week, Arnaud had to pause the game due to a lack of resources. Instead of performing huge cuts that would destroy the game experience, Arnaud decided to focus on the trapped dungeon exploration gameplay, as an intermediate step to complete the game without compromising his ambitious objectives.

Thanks to a more mature game development experience and to a better understanding of his gameplay objectives, the traps-based prototype quickly revealing a huge potential for creating a unique and exciting game. The development of Almost Epic Adventures™: The Goblin's Week was then paused, and Arnaud started working on Almost Epic Adventures™: Neverlooted Dungeon.

The game was revealed on Steam in January 2020.

The first public demo of the game was released during the Steam Game Festival in October 2020.

The second public demo of the game was released during the Steam Neo Fest in October 2021.
