Introducing Dungeon Hearts – The Latest Game in the WFTO Multiverse!

Darkest greetings Underlord,

Today we’re proud to finally reveal our next project, previously codenamed Project Aftercare. Now we know we’ve all been here before and it’s important we address the elephant in the room that is the now-defunct Virtual Dungeon Pet Management Simulation Game, Skargz.

When we announced Skargz we were extremely confident in the design we had for reviving the Virtual Pet genre and we know that there were many fans looking forward to it. Which is why we must apologetically confirm its cancellation in favour of our new project.


Press X to pay respects

Ultimately we felt that the Virtual Pet genre wasn’t a lucrative enough investment after all, and presented minimal opportunities to capitalise on the War for the Overworld IP, which conveniently brings us to our big announcement!

We’ve always said that we’ve wanted to continue exploring the War for the Overworld universe beyond the current scope of the existing game; and though we made it clear that Project Aftercare would not be a direct sequel, that didn’t preclude us from expanding the universe elsewhere.

To that end, we’re now expanding into the lucrative visual novel and dating sim space!

Introducing Dungeon Hearts™!

Dungeon Hearts™ is a Visual Anime Waifu Dating Dungeon Management Simulation Novel Role Playing Game (Or a VAWDDMSNRPG) that continues to progress our ambition to develop only the most genre-busting titles. In Dungeon Hearts™ you’ll assume the role of an Underlord joining the school of Kairos High, to build your harem of minions through a combination of social interaction, critical choices and good-old-fashioned dungeon management.

We know that our history with the now cancelled project Skargz leaves some room for doubt; so to assuage your concerns we have prepared a prototype! This is a proof of concept, as it were, which you can try out by clicking the image below:

Upon reaching the page you will be presented with a black screen; please give the game a moment to load. Loading time may vary based on your connection and browser. If you are using Internet Explorer, please make better life choices.

If the game hasn’t loaded after a few minutes you can download an offline version for Windows, Mac or Linux. via (The Mac and Linux versions may or may not work.)

It’s important to clarify that this is very much a proof of concept – a flex of our muscles – and will be used as a basis for future iterations, very much in the vein of War for the Overworld’s development. In short, this is a 30-minute experience to excite the loins!


Mendechaus has some sage advice on the best dating technique

So given this is just a proof of concept, here’s what can you expect from the final version – coming soon at an indeterminate date in the future!:


  • Explore the realm of Kairos like never before – Set in a parallel universe where Mendechaus’ long-abandoned thoughts of conquest have turned instead to thoughts of love. Explore a modern Kairos as an upperclassman at Kairos High.
  • Build your haremPursue dozens of unique minions or even heroes, such as Raven the Succubus, Agnes the Chunder, Brian the Cultist, or Pierre the Bard – all with their own personalities and stories to discover. Build their Dungeon Heart by appealing to them with gifts, dates and even casual conversation!
  • Manage a dungeon to keep your lovers – We know how that sounds but hear us out: in Dungeon Hearts™ you’ll be able to build your own dungeon filled with all the amenities to keep your sweethearts for years to come… wait that didn’t sound any better.
  • Experience a compelling storyWith over 9000 hours told across 2500 individual episodes (MSRP £29.99/$29.99/€49.99 per episode) you’ll be able to play for the rest of your life. Especially if you’re a whale!
  • Turn the adventure on its head with Hero Mode Rather than playing as a dungeon- keeping Underlord, instead explore the story from the other perspective with Hero Mode! This will be a day-one DLC for each episode (MSRP £15.99/$15.99/€99.99 per installment) which unlocks an accompanying dungeon-crawling RPG. Placed in the polished boots of Lord O’Thelove, you’ll need to overcome various minions with your otherworldly charms!
  • Bring your lovers to War for the OverworldBy popular demand, with the Dungeon Portal you can bring your fully-hearted-up lovers to War for the Overworld to act as unique elite units – provided you build them a special room via secret room layouts.
  • Date smart not hard with gifts from Kairos-1337 – Travel between the parallel worlds works both ways! In the hotly-anticipated v2.0 update for War for the Overworld you can now earn or purchase Warboxes, which contain sets of random loot such as maps, units, dungeon themes, and even gifts for your lovers in Dungeon Hearts! Pride and accomplishment never felt so great!

Brian-Kun hopes you can be with him soon!

We hope you enjoy the exciting prototype of Dungeon Hearts and that you drop by again tomorrow for more exciting news!
