Oceanhorn: Chronos Dungeon – Golden Edition adds new enemies to the dungeon crawler, along with new levels, special items, power ups, legendary weapons and more.

The update released by Cornfox & Brothers on Wednesday even includes the town of Nexus – previously the game took place entirely in the dungeon.

Chronos Dungeon draws on other Oceanhorn games

Chronos Dungeon is an action-packed dungeon crawler focusing on arcade-like combat, looting and exploration. The look and feel harks back to the days of 16-bit graphics and the original Rogue.

It is set in between Oceanhorn: Monsters of Uncharted Seas and Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm. The new version ties the game more closely to the two earlier ones.

“We wanted to connect Oceanhorn: Chronos Dungeon to the other episodes of the Oceanhorn series with more lore and a sense of familiarity,” said Heikki Repo, Creative Director of Cornfox & Brothers. “We realized that there are many things from those games we could bring into Chronos Dungeon to strengthen the bonds between games and enrich the overall backstory of the series. Oceanhorn: Chronos Dungeon remains a dungeon crawler first, but with a stronger Oceanhorn adventure flavor now.”

Golden Edition goes to the next level

The update includes the new town of Nexus, a location players will visit multiple times as they travel deeper into Chronos Dungeon. It offers new NPCs, activities and secrets to discover.

Golden Edition also adds four legendary weapons to unlock, as well as new special items and power-ups.

To keep the action exciting, the update to Chronos Dungeon includes enemies brought in from Knights of the Lost Realm. And there’s a new enemy category: Mini-Bosses. Plus, Cornfox added new hand-crafted levels, plus a different category of levels to provide a break from the core experience.
