Dungeon Architect

Procedural Level Generation system. Build your games faster with this award winning suite of level generation tools

Switch Engine:

Unreal

Unity

Powerful Design Tools

Design the layout of your dungeons using powerful node based systems. Create key-locks, teleporters, cyclic paths and much more!

Node Based Layout Designer

Design the layout of your procedural dungeons using the flow editor. Then create an infinite number of procedural dungeons that follow this layout rule. Create cyclic-paths, key-locks, teleporters, shops, treasure rooms, boss rooms and much more

Cyclic Paths
Define paths for your procedural dungeons. They can branch out of an existing path, and can optionally merge back into another existing path
Key-Lock System
Define multiple key-locks. The keys and locks can be assigned to different paths. The system will always create a playable level
One-way Doors
Some doors would be strategically promoted to One-way doors so the player doesn't bypass a locked door and enter from another path
Teleporters
Built-in support for teleporter. They work with the key-lock system and the keys or locks can be placed behind the teleportered paths
Item Spawner
Spawn any type of items on the world (like NPCs, treasure chests, power-ups etc) using the theme engine
Tilemap
The flow graph is initially designed in the abstract layout graph. Then the result is trasferred over to a tilemap, which is then used to build a 3D dungeon using the Theme Engine
Procedural Foliage / Noise Overlays
Create noise based overlays on top of your dungeon. These are great for foliage, trees, large cave like rock formations etc. Use a noise based elevation system to decorate the tiles around the dungeon

Graph Grammar System

This system lets you stitch together pre-built rooms based on a procedural graph. These graphs are generated using Graph Grammar rules, an intuitive and powerful way of designing your dungeon layouts. It gives you complete control on the layout and opportunities to rewrite and grow the graph as needed

Graph Grammar Editor
Design, Visualize and Debug your graph grammars in one integrated editor
Stitch pre-made rooms
Design rooms in individual map files. Define stitching points which will be replaced with either a door or blocked off with a wall. This gives the artist tremendous control over the design of individual rooms and is a great blend of procedural generation and artistic control
Key-Locks / Teleporters
Easily add support for Key-Locks, Multikey-Locks, Teleporters, and much more.
Level Streaming
Improve performance by streaming in only the nearby chunks. This also works on multiplayer. Deploy various streaming strategies: Stream based on distance from player or stream based on the room connection graph with customizable depth
Debug View
Switch to the Debug View to walk through the stitching process step-by-step. This gives your a clear visual indication of where the build has failed and the reason behind it, so you can go back and fix your room modules or the graph grammar
Level Design
Design your own set of gameplay graphs and keep your players engaged without making your game repetitive. The sample contains keys and treasure rooms guarded by miniboss rooms, shops, teleporters etc. Each graph generates an infinite variation of dungeons that honor the specifed layout rules

Performance Analysis

Find bottlenecks in your dungeon graph designs and optimize them using the Performance Analyzer. It shows how many attempts were made to build the dungeon.
It is normal for a dungeon to make multiple attempts before converging to a solution. However, if your dungeon design doesn't provide good opportunities for it to converge, they would show up here and you can fix themLearn More

Generate Thousands of Test Cases
Generate thousands of random dungeons using the active dungeon graph and analyze the performance. This helps you quickly identify and optimize your dungeons while you are designing them
Override Parameters
Override any of the flow graph paramters from within the performance window itself. This allows you to quickly test the performance by tweaking different parameters, without modifying the base graph

Theme Engine

A new way to build your levels using an intuitive node based system

Theme Editor

Design the visuals of your level using a node-based system. Drop in assets (like mesh, blueprints, lights, NPCs, destructibles etc) from the content browser and link them up

Swappable Themes

Swap out the theme asset with another one to give a completely different look to your dungeons. Share and reuse theme files across different projects and with team members

Live Preview

Preview the generated dungeon in realtime as you design and modify the theme graph. This helps you iterate faster and increase productivity

Extension Points

Hook into the theme engine and customize further with your own blueprint rules (selection rule, transform rule, spawn rule etc)

Unreal Engine 5 Support

Free upgrade to UE5. It is fully supported and customers get an early access build for UE5-EA. Comes bundled with the sample scene shown in the video
