Steampunk dungeon crawler 'Vaporum' hits Xbox One on April 10

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.

Vaporum for Xbox One is currently available for digital preorder, and costs $20. However, the price is going to jump back up to $25 in less than a day. If you're interested in the title, be sure to snap it up quickly.
