Dicey Dungeons is a deck-building turn-based RPG roguelike. In order to achieve your heart's desire, you meet with Lady Luck and turn yourself into dice, and use some of yourself to beat enemies throughout the dungeons.

Certainly, one spin of the big wheel'll let you win... right?

To do:
  • Older versions had different enemy equipment. Especially Sneezy.
  • Older version equipment acted differently. For example, Change Machine's upgraded form was changed between v1.12 and v2.0.
  • See if it's possible to create animated versions of the enemy back sprites as well as find any other unused animations
  • Add unused Reunion graphics
  • Add details about secret Editor menu
  • Add unused strings found in the locale files (for example, some unused episode concepts, enemy defeat lines)
  • Issue tracker for beta versions is public; potential for Pre-release subpage, also has info about early Halloween Special



Read about prototype versions of this game that have been released or dumped.
Prototype Info

Early Chipzel Music

For the game's soundtrack, Chipzel departed from her ordinary fare (chiptune) for a more funk-oriented sound. However, when she was first on board (after the reign of placeholder MIDI pop), alpha versions contained a lot of early takes with a pure chiptune sound, plus a couple of tracks delving into trance, and some ambient overworld music that was completely replaced.

A fanmade "digital bootleg album" containing these outtakes can be found here. It also contains shorter, different mixes of the final tracks that were used in the closed beta.

Unused Graphics

Equipment Symbols

These symbols were likely meant for pieces of equipment and statuses that aren't in the final game.

Bow and Arrow

Diceydungeons-bow arrow.png







While there is a Lantern status in this game, it just uses the dice graphic instead.



Big Symbols

These symbols are found in data/graphics/ui/bigsymbols but aren't found in the current game (although a star similar to star.png is used for the Confuse status).

Unused Final
Diceydungeons-trading post.png Diceydungeons-trading post final.png

An early version of the Trading Post sprite, which appeared in alpha versions of the game. Compared to the final, the early trading post is red and isn't a cart.

The Invisible Man

Within the animations folder (which contains animations for all the game's enemies and the fight transition as well as the back sprites in the next section) there's a folder for invisible_man, who incredibly isn't visible in the game (or in the rest of the game's data).

Unused Enemy Back Sprites

During the Backstage episode, you can play as the enemy characters. Additionally in Reunion, you can steal potions from the Alchemist in order to temporarily transform into enemies. However, if you can't play as an enemy, you won't be able to see their back. Here's a list of enemies whose backs you won't be able to see in-game.

The Cornelius back sprite was visible in v1.0, but unavailable starting in v1.1 when Cornelius was removed from the Backstage episode.

Unused Text

Defeating Boss Dialogue

When you defeat a boss, you immediately go to an end-of-episode cutscene. However, some of the bosses have some unused lines if you beat them.


Ugh! Well, thanks for inspiring me to work harder.

I'll get you next time!


So falls the injured hawk to the carrion vulture.


Way out's over there, no need to hang around
getting in the way all afternoon.

Defeated By Enemy Dialogue

It seems that some enemies were supposed to say things when they defeat you in an episode, but this is not implemented in the final game.


Bad luck there! Keep working hard! You'll make it one day!


So the trees reach back to the sun, the tide comes in again,
and all is right with the world.

Buzz off then - game's over, loser.

Recruiting Enemy Dialogue

During the final episode, enemies can join your party after you beat them, but not all enemies will show up in this episode. However, one enemy who can't show up in Backstage still has dialogue for joining you.


You think you're soooooo good just because
you're going to fight Lady Luck!



Defeating Enemy (Reunion) Dialogue

There are quite a few enemies who weren't able to make it into Reunion for various reasons. However, they still have a chance to have things to say if you manage to bring them into Reunion and then defeat them.


You be careful there! Just because you escaped the Dungeons once
doesn't mean you get to trample my Brussels sprouts!


That was so well-executed! I've missed you and your excellent fighting skills!
Why not let me give you a big harmless Mimic hug with my chest-mouth?


Yeah, well, watch out for rockfalls! If you get trapped
in one that counts as me beating you!

Rhino Beetle



I see time has increased neither your grace nor your dignity, whereas *I* have
been promoted to a higher level enemy. So, who's really the winner here?


Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.

Bounty Hunter

Another devastating loss! And yet I bear it with equanimity, for who would
not happily lose to the dice that won us our weekends off and sick pay?

Boss (Reunion) Intro Dialogue

As it turns out, one boss wasn't able to make it to Reunion. He still has things to say if you can start a boss fight against him.


Hello there. Happy 478th birthday, me. I guess a dismal battle with the least
interesting enemy dice is the only celebration I can expect.
You again? SIGH. Sometimes the eternal life of a vampire really does start
to pall. Mostly when visitors refuse to take the hint and leave.
Oh hey, it's you. You know what they say, another year, another enemy
it's hardly worth the effort to defeat... Have at you, I guess.

Enemy Bios

Two enemies in the game have unused bios. Usually, these are unlocked by completing challenges, but no challenge exists to unlock these characters' bios.

Drain Monster

Favourite food:
Warm fresh dishwater

Lurking in the drains and making gurgle noises to
scare kids in the bath

Happiest moment:
A childhood trip to the water park

Karaoke go-to:
TLC's "Waterfalls"

Reason for entering the dungeons:
Got carried along the drains in a storm


Favourite food:

Childhood pet:

Favourite book:
The collected works of Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Reason for entering the dungeons:
Wanted some UNINVADED SLEEP which obviously is
not going to be an OPTION

Episode Descriptions

Some episodes have descriptions that aren't seen in the final game.


The final episode has a hidden description and ruleset that aren't used:

Team up with the other contestants and recruit the dungeon's
monsters in one final effort to overthrow Lady Luck!
Rules Description
Recuit enemies you defeat in combat.
Switch between contestants and enemies by choosing cards from a deck.
Equipment doesn't recharge between turns.

In this episode, you do recuit (sic) the enemies after you defeat them. However, the description implies that all equipment would only be usable once per battle, which isn't the case in the final game.

Halloween Special Episodes

All episodes have the same descriptions.

(text should not appear)
Rules Description
(text should not appear)

Reunion Episodes

All episodes have the same descriptions.

Should not appear
Rules Description
Standard Rules.

Despite this description, the rules are not actually standard.

Episode Intros

At the start of each episode, Lady Luck always announces the start of each episode with a random introduction. However, the Halloween Special intros are cut short.

Halloween Special

Note that the first line of each of these intros is used. The lines afterward are skipped; you immediately go to the start of the episode after Lady Luck says her first line.

All Characters

{sly}Did I make you jump?

{normal}I hope so! It's not Halloween if you don't
scare a few innocent bystanders!
Welcome back to the Diii-iiiiiicey Duu-uuuuungeons
Halloween Special!

{sly}May all your dice be haunted!
Welcome back to Halloween!

Are you feeling scared yet? I bet our Inventor is!
Hello everybody! It's the Halloween Special, and
we're here to watch our Inventor fail.

{sly}Or maybe this time it'll work out for her!
It's the Halloween Special - again!

Almost as if our Witch's previous failure has trapped
her in an endless spooky cycle of doom!

{sly}Maybe this time though, eh?
Welcome back to the Halloween special!

{sly}Let's watch as our little Witch gives
it one more shot!

Upgrade Descriptions

Currently, the upgrade is only depicted visually, with the unupgraded equipment and the upgraded equipment side-by-side for comparison. However, there is text within the game's executable that indicated upgrades would have some text explaining the upgrade as well, as was the case in early prototypes.

Upgrade description Potential intended equipment
adds a bonus 1 to it Sword
adds a bonus 2 to it Pocket Knife
adds a bonus 3 to it Broadsword
adds a bonus 4 to it Bear Maul
adds a bonus 5 to it
adds a bonus 6 to it
reduces its power Paper Lantern
changes its return damage to a constant [sword]3 Boomerang
converts it into a countdown Dire Wolf Howl
gives a clue to how it works Rosepetal Shield, Rosepetal Staff
increases its poison damage Poison Cloud, Toxic Ooze
makes it more powerful
lowers its cost to play
makes it completely game breaking
allows you to use it every turn Lantern
allows it to use larger dice Doppeldice, Claw
reduces its countdown Buckler
reduces its size Battle Axe
makes it reuseable Ink Splat
makes it easier to play Duplicate

Bear Chest

Originally, if you turned into a Bear and opened a treasure chest, you'd see this message (labeled as chest_bear internally):

You can't take this. You're a bear.

In-game, bears are capable of getting their own items from chests.

Unused Maps

Not even Lady Luck will shuffle these two floors into a dungeon.


A possible generation of graph_catchall.txt

This dungeon floor was likely used to test every possible item, enemy, and walkable space that could be generated on a floor.



A possible generation of testgraph.txt

Since all items on this dungeon floor are off the main path, this map may have been used to test graph path truncation, since the final game removes spaces from the displayed map if nothing is generated in a potential spot.


Unused Battles

These battles have been left unused in the final game.

To do:
  • Add Super Enemy enemy loadouts
  • Add Reunion enemy loadouts
  • Add video of fighting brainwashed contestants.

Fighting Your Friends

In older versions of the final episode, Backstage, the playable dice would be brainwashed and you would have to fight them in order to unbrainwash them and recruit them to your team.

Using mods, it's possible to add these unused fighters into the game by editing an episode's level generator to have this code in place of one of the addfloor codes:

  .addotherstuff([teammate("Jester"), teammate("Thief"), teammate("Witch"), teammate("Robot"), teammate("Inventor"), teammate("Warrior")], [])

The characters all have 24 HP, 3 dice, and the equipment they have in their Backstage episode.

Wait, what's going on?

Where am I? Who are you?

HP Dice Equipment
24 3 Missing Score, Capacitor
Before Battle

...I think that's what I do now? That's what I'm here for?

here for! It was awful! It was so awful!

Give me a moment to get my bearings... Right. Okay.

Less talk, more action! I'll show HER beep and boop.


HP Dice Equipment
24 3 Hammer, Spanner, Pea Shooter
Before Battle
Hello! Hello! You're an enemy! I'm here to fight you!

It's all very clear to me. I understand exactly

HP Dice Equipment

I didn't know who I was! Let's get out of here!


This fight has the Jester's unique theme, Against All Odds, playing.

HP Dice Equipment
24 3 Juggling Ball, Juggling Ball, Wind up Fist
Before Battle
Dungeons to Dicey Welcome, where you can desire your heart's win!

After Battle
UGH. That was pretty intense. Let me catch
my breath for a second.

... Right. Okay.

I think I'm myself again now. And I don't EVER
want to go back to that. So let's WIN.

Unused Items

There are a lot of items that have been left unused throughout the Dungeons for various reasons. All equipment is sorted based on their position in the internal equipment.csv files.

Note that while there are some pieces of equipment that don't generate naturally, they may still be in the game but generated through random item generators like those caused by the Yolanda Bonus Round rule. This lists equipment that is also excluded from random lists and not available through normal gameplay, even in bonus episodes like Reunion.

Early Hot Potato

Hot Potato during the first public Thief Reunion betatest. Bounty Hunter was meant to be excluded from the enemy pool but was not, and players found themselves with a very broken item that did not work properly, frequently duplicating itself and becoming an incorrect size. (It was also PINK, whereas the final Hot Potato is RED.)

weakpoison (enemy) is weak to poison.

Debug Controller

To do:
Figure out exactly what the screen positions mean in the diagnostic info when modcheats are active.

There's a debug menu that can be enabled by adding the -modcheats flag when starting Dicey Dungeons from the command prompt. This adds a piece of text saying (modding cheats are active) at the bottom of the screen at all times while it's on.

While it's on, you start each episode with 50 extra gold. Additionally, extra controls are enabled with the keyboard:

  • Press numbers from 1 to 6 on the number row to roll a dice with that value.
  • Press P during combat for your character to take 1 damage.
  • Press Shift and P during combat to make the enemy take 1 damage.
  • Press O during combat to fully heal your character.
  • Right click during your turn to instantly win the fight. Additionally, you can click a hidden right arrow that will appear to the right of the turn counter and flag to instantly win the fight.
  • Hold Z in the overworld to enable teleportation: you can move your character anywhere on the map when you click.
  • Press 0 on the number row to get diagnostic info, including player and enemy info, the number of dice on the board, equipment states, and combat status, as well as a list of screen positions, widths, and heights.

Revisional Differences

  • v1.0 had a bug that caused "What You Could Have Won (Bestiary)" to never play, the bestiary music being "The Ice Stage" instead, as well as a bug that prevented "Tempting Fate" from ever playing. These were almost immediately fixed.
  • "The Dungeon" never played until shortly after v1.3 - until then, "The Dark Forest" played in floors with the dungeon backdrop in addition to the forest backdrop.
  • The animation for a fighter being inflicted with Curse became much faster starting with v2.0.
  • The music in the character select was previously characterselect.ogg, a half-length version of "Come on Down" with crowd SFX overlaid. By January 2022 it was changed to the normal version of "Come on Down" (combat7.ogg, which already existed in the game's files) and characterselect.ogg was removed, as part of improvements made to the Nintendo Switch version.
