Notice: Since the last two community updates were not available on our website for a while, we decided to repost them here.
We have a lot to announce in this community update, so without further ado let's get straight into it!
The Release Date for DFD
At the end of last year, we made the difficult decision to delay the beta and the release of DFD by an undisclosed amount of time. Contrary to our expectations, you guys – the Community – accepted this generously and gave us even more motivation to continue.
Since then we decided to wait with announcing a release date until we are certain that we can meet the new deadline.
That's why we are especially happy that in this Community Update, we are finally able to announce that DFD's release date has been set for Q2, 2023! At the same time, the beta for DFD is scheduled for the end of 2022.
Taking your feedback from the community survey into account: We are planning to provide you with a feature- and content-rich game, which allows for a truly immersive tabletop experience rather than a simple tech demo that does not withstand any actual TTRPG campaigns. But how do we achieve this?
Dungeon Full Dive Levels Up
Next to the reveal of the release date of DFD, we have an equally exciting announcement to make.
We were able to secure over 600.000€ in funding to step up the development of Dungeon Full Dive! With that, we are almost tripling the resources behind DFD. What does this mean?
tl;dr: We can make DFD gooder.
We have just received a special federal grant for video game developers ('Computerspielförderung') from the German government worth more than 250.000€. Along with that, we were also able to secure additional funds worth over 350.000€ coming from a variety of sources; including smaller government funds and investors. The official press releases are still in the works and you can expect more information about this topic in the upcoming weeks.
The funding enables us to welcome additional, talented industry veterans into the TxK Gaming family. We are very eager to let you meet them in the following Community Updates. So look forward to that! Adding their knowledge and expertise to our party, we plan to take Dungeon Full Dive to the next level!
Speaking of updates...
Our Community Roadmap
Last but not least, we have also worked on the Dungeon Full Dive - Community Roadmap. With it, we want to provide you with a short overview of what you can keep an eye out for in these updates including – of course – our major milestones, community events, and various insights into the development:

We are truly looking forward to seeing you inside DFD!
