Dungeon Bitches is a game wherein disaster lesbians get fucked up in dungeons.
Dungeon Bitches punches cops with its girlfriend.
Dungeon Bitches isn’t gay as in happy, it’s queer as in fuck you.
If Dungeon Bitches was at Stonewall, it would have thrown the second brick.
WARNING: The game will contain gore, nudity, and sexuality.
We (me, Emily Allen, and Sarah Carapace) have put a LOT of blood sweat and tears into this thing and the kickstarter. It’s a passion project, and goddamnit I think it’s been beyond worth it.
We have a lot of cool stretch goals, including my setting/adventure/hack of the game, The Crooked Mile: Horror in the Margins, where a Midwestern queercore band solves genuinely horrifying mysteries to keep food in their mouths.
And, we’re live!!! Please share and back us if you can.
And here are some bottom lines we’ve gotten:
Dungeon bitches is a fascinating game about damaged people surviving outside society, finding family, and dealing with what hurts them. The playbooks are often horrifying, but the characters will have to rely on their human connection to each other to survive. Probably the most exciting PbtA game I’ve played since Apocalypse World itself.

Dungeon Bitches is a hypodermic needle. It’s all point, it hurts, but it’s probably got something good for you in it. Or hard drugs. One or the other. It is a very personal, idiosyncratic game. It is difficult to wrangle on purpose. It’s messy. It has thorns. It uses the bones of mechanical and thematic convention but eschews the easy imitation of its forebears.
Ultimately, if you want a game about emotions and trauma, if you want a game about dungeon-crawling and not fitting in, if you want a game about finding community despite a hostile world, and if you want a game that’s really very good at setting limits and giving advice and also looking out for the players, check this out.
