Today, Fatbot Games and Merge Games announced that their steampunk dungeon crawler Vaporum is coming to Xbox One on April 10. According to the companies, Vaporum is an award-winning grid-based dungeon crawler that uses a first-person perspective. Just like Dungeon Master and Legend of Grimrock, Vaporum is a single-player experience where you have to escape by overcoming incredible odds.

Unlike many dungeon crawlers, Vaporum features real-time combat on a grid. In many ways it's like chess, but you can dodge the attacks! There's plenty of voice acting and other elements players will like. It's definitely a modern experience, but pays homage to old-school games.
