Quest of Dungeons GDC 2015 Trailer for the Xbox One

Hey everyone, just a small update. GDC 2015 is happening right now and last night a trailer was released for Quest of Dungeons running on the Xbox One. I made all new footage, running at 1080p in 60FPS for this new trailer, but kept more or less the structure of the original one since I think it reflects well what the game is all about.

QoD XO devlog 1

I鈥檝e been doing a lot of menus and gamepad specifics related work lately. My first step has been to make sure all menus are easy to use with a Xbox One controller, and while most of the menus in the main screen are usable, inside the game they are not. Everything was made with mouse in mind at first so I decided to remake all of them again in a different way....
