My Pet Dungeon is an 8-level sandbox campaign in War for the Overworld, narrated by the rambunctious Richard Ridings. It offers a much more relaxed pacing compared to the game's other modes, letting players explore and build their idyllic dungeons, with new snowy terrain to boot. Progress involves simply achieving a target score through dungeon management, defeating optional enemies, and completing bonus objectives. The Toybox room offers an endless supply of enemy units which the player can experiment with, grabbing them and dropping them anywhere in the levels. The player can also spawn waves of enemies to put their dungeons through their paces. Completing My Pet Dungeon unlocks God Mode, giving players the power to reshape the levels as they wish and spawn units from thin air - all whilst playing the game. Although a paid expansion, the first two levels of My Pet Dungeon are available for free, so players can try before they buy. The expansion released on April 3rd, 2017 alongside Patch 1.6, during the game's second anniversary celebrations.
Following the Crucible release, Brightrock had intended to develop another expansion in the style of Heart of Gold; but due to the success of Crucible and its accompanying Patch 1.5, they decided to add the fan-favourite My Pet Dungeon mode first, before moving onto the final expansion. This also made sense, since one of the criticisms often levelled at WFTO is that it is too fast-paced; My Pet Dungeon mode is the perfect remedy, with its much more chilled-out dungeon management experience.

About Brightrock Games
Brightrock Games is a British independent game studio based in Brighton, UK, with a multinational core team of 15 people. Initially a small gathering of modders, enthusiasts and - most of all - gamers, the group first rallied under the banner of Subterranean Games, setting their sights o reviving a genre that AAA publishers had long neglected. United in a shared passion for the oft-overlooked dungeon management genre, Subterranean Games released War for the Overworld on PC, Mac and Linux in April 2015. With this critically acclaimed and successful game under their belt, the company name was updated to Brightrock Games to better reflect the team’s broadening horizons. Brightrock Games’ goal is to create genre-twisting strategy management games that tell engaging stories and push the medium forwards.
