#8DaysOfPixelFeature — Day 3: Below the Stone

3 min readOct 23, 2023

Below the Stone is a punishing pixel-art roguelike about dwarves on the quest for the deepest depths. A place where each and every descent will lead to new adventures — and where only the most determined players with many lost lives will be rewarded by the hidden world lying below the stone.

Every dwarf starts their adventure with two things in mind: How deep they can go, and what shiny new things they can bring up to their fellow dwarves. Each adventure will lead to new adventures as a procedurally generated underground leads you through danger, treasure, and most of all adventure. Extra resources may be brought back for one’s own use on future expeditions as well!

Below the Stone takes inspiration from old games we’ve all played growing up, as well as new twists and turns that can be compared to the caves you explore! If you love spending hours or short breaks on mining, exploring, and progressing to the deepest depths of a fantasy world, Below the Stone is the game you should dig into!

  • Procedurally generated worlds which lead to a new adventure in every descent.
