Some details:
Quote
Dungeons and Dam (DS/Acquire/2009)
- Defend the town built around the dam from monsters attacking at night
- The layout of the dam and the flow of water is just as important to your survival as the growth of your characters and the construction of the party.


Sounds neat, it's sort of like they're building on the concept introduced in Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaikida and are adding more fleshed out RPG battles at the same time.

Looks neat.  But man...  If we get it, I hope the name is changed to...  Anything else that's not Dungeons and Dam.  :|

I can't imagine a more descriptive title for that game >_>

I think it's a good choice.

What'd you have in mind?  Mayhaps something like "Defenders of the Dam" perhaps?  Doofy sure, but certainly a bit more exciting and heroic sounding than Dungeons & Dam.  Although I'd think you'd be more into a game entitled "Dam Nation" since you have to defend the dam(n) city from those dam(n) monsters. 

Go ahead, launch your barrage of tomatoes at me.

The Japanese title is actually Dan←Dam or Dun←Dam (Dungeons & Dam is the subtitle; probably so that people won't get confused). Since they spell dungeon with kana like danjon it makes for a clever title there. Dan←Dam is what the kana says but the url says Dun←Dam, maybe both are acceptable?

I like Dam Nation.

The current name is too similar to Dungeons & Dragons. For a second, I thought it was.

Cool premise. Hopefully they get the right balance of building and simulation elements, strategy elements, and dice-rolling, number-crunching combat. This title sounds really interesting.

This sounds kind of like Dwarf Fortress lite, actually.

People doing the localization for this game could get cheeky and rename it "Dam(n) Dungeons!" :p
