Microbird has also opened up sign-ups for an official playtest of Dungeons of Hinterberg. Those selected will be able to try the game from May 9th to 16th. Microbird has shared that the first two in-game days, featuring a mixture of exploration and dungeon crawling, will be playable. If you’re interested, you can sign up via the official Steam page.

Dungeons of Hinterberg takes place in the namesake alpine village, where players assume the role of Luisa, a burnt-out law trainee. Set out on spelunking myriad dungeons to decompress from her corporate career, players will guide Luisa through friendships, foes, and frost in action combat.

Dungeons of Hinterberg Synopsis

Explore the Alps

Snowboard down a glacier, zipline through the forest, climb a mountain, or have a coffee by the lake… There’s no shortage of places to discover while you’re out looking for your next dungeon!

Slay in style

Monsters lurk around every corner in Hinterberg, and your sword and magic skills are essential for keeping them at bay. Harness the wind, conjure a snowboard out of thin air, or freeze your enemies in a jelly block!

Solve your way out

Braving a dungeon requires more than just cutting-edge sports gear and a good sword arm. Hinterberg’s dungeons are full of puzzles that will surprise and challenge you. Use your head, your magic skills, and every trick in the book to solve them!

Meet the locals

Spend your nights forging friendships with the locals and adventurers! Some of them will teach you new tricks, others are just here for selfies… But good relationships don’t just make your stay more memorable, they’re key to becoming a better slayer!
