Stronghold dev goes underground for Dungeon Hero

Firefly Studios (Stronghold) have united with Gamecock to fight evil hordes of dungeon dwellers in Dungeon Hero for PC and Xbox 360. You might be tempted to think of other dungeon-themed games from the past -- Dungeon Explorer, Dungeon Siege, Dungeon Capers, Dungeon Runners, even Double Dungeon -- but did they have "goblin cheese merchants, jailed troll miners and helpful imps just looking for peace?" We didn't think so.

The press release for the game promises to be a fresh take on the dungeon crawler genre, offering HD graphics and an in-game world that is a "totally functional, living, breathing community in every way." No release date has been announced; trailer embedded after the break.
