ActionTrip serves up a preview of D.W. Bradley's Dungeon Lords. It's based on a playable build of the game, so you can check it out if for no other reason than to see the nifty screenshots of the game you've never seen before.

Several days ago I had the chance to play the latest build of DreamCatcher's fantasy RPG, currently under development by Heuristic Park, the authors of Wizards & Warriors. Its author is the famed David W. Bradley, the designer of several Wizardry titles (namely 5, 6 and 7). I hastily discharged it as 'just another fantasy RPG' with a cliché story and several playable stereotypical races. I was wrong. Although many game's elements still look rough and need some serious polish, it is obvious that Dungeon Lords manages to incorporate the RPG and the action elements in a very satisfying manner, making a pleasant mixture of sword-wielding, spell-casting and character development. After initial skepticism, I plunged into the dark and dangerous world of Dungeon Lords infested with goblins, bats, thieves, orc trolls and headless brutes. (In case you're wondering, the latter is a giant headless ungulate gone bad.)​

There's a certain irony that the word cliché is used in this paragraph.
