Description

History

Dumb as Wizards started as a playful passion project, on the side of work for hire consulting. It was meant to be a quick prototype that Random Dragon could quickly prove to be fun or discard, at that point being just cubes shooting spheres. It quickly became apparent that the concept was solid, and was developed into an early access title, due to other projects taking priority the early access period was prolonged. Finally after 2 years we've had the time to finish the release. The production has been focused on showing rather than telling, Random Dragon has showcased and tested Dumb as Wizards with outsiders since it was hideous and will continue to do so until and after it is released fully, this is part of the reason Early Access makes sense for the title, Random Dragon can gather feedback and validate with the user base, get suggestions for Customization options, spells and more.
