Torturing. Causing pain and suffering. Taking screams and tears from a completely subdued human being.
That's the hobby of people from a community called The Dungeoneers. Dungeoneers have their own private dungeons in their homes (hence the name), to which they take strangers - those naive enough to fall for the dungeoneer's charms.
Members from this community won't settle for just executing their sadistic game. They must show it to other people. For that, they videotape their torture sessions and post it to online forums, to get other member's appreciation and reviews.

BE:D tells the story of Verge, a dungeoneer depressed because he's lost his touch with doing decent videos, and because the love of his life, Daily, couldn't care less about his existence.

Gameplay
BE:D has two distinct gameplay aspects:
--The first one is similar to a Dating Sim, in which you have to approach strangers on the street and seduce them to go home with you, mainly using dialog choices.
--The second one is more like a puzzle, and it consists of setting up your dungeon to torture your victims. Your goal at this stage is making your victim leave the dungeon completely shattered psychologically and physically, but still alive. That's what the Dungeoneers call a Beautiful Escape, and it's the ultimate goal of the torture sessions. You can also get them killed, get them too depressed to leave the dungeon, or even have them leave healthy enough, but your viewers won't appreciate your videos as much. It's all about the delicate balance between too much and not enough.

Gameplay elements are tempered with lots of dialogs and the resolution of Verge's love story.

After Suzy and freedom, Beautiful Escape: Dungeoneer was also translated to korean.




It's worth mentioning that after these translations I started learning korean myself. 한국어가 정말 아름다운 언어입니다!

Recently, a russian translation was also made, which is pretty cool. For some (cultural?) reason, BE:D seems to be very popular in Russian. They even made a russian Beautiful Escape: Dungeoneer Wikipedia page!

Coincidentally, this week a fellow Brazilian asked permission to make a Portuguese translation for the game. For some strange reason it bothers me a little (maybe because I should me making this translation myself?), but it's amazing that the game is reaching people from all over the world like that.

Random fun thing: the guy who made the Russian translation mentioned that Verge looks a lot like Eridan Ampora from Homestuck. I didn't even know what Homestuck is but the resemblace is disturbing!

Same here because it's almost exactly like that. Would be nice to see calunio pull it off though.
Hostel + Saw + Dungeon Keeper + Deception + Snuff = Win.
This should make for an... 'interesting'... playing experience...

Between having to use seduction and then imprison someone in the name of a Vlog Post, and having to subtly walk the line between destroying a persons mind and keeping them alive; its gonna be hard to play this and NOT have your own Beautiful Escape from the experience...

I hope you plan to set up some kind of fund for the physiological treatment of your game's players..! :-P

(Kudos btw on being courageous enough to delve into such a horrible subject...)

Calunio:

DO WANT.

*subscribes to this fucked up shit*

(You need any help with any aspect of this you let me know. I am volunteering.)
I just watched the Hostel movie for inspiration (I hadn't watched it before). No inspiration obtained.

Max, depending on time issues, I may end up needing that help (mostly with writing dialogs).

Hopefully it didn't leave you "completely shattered psychologically".
Visually: this is great, love all the aspects from the text boxes to the scenery.

Yay! Thank you for the honors!
And thank you very much for the help! You're a helping machine. If you play this final version, I hope you don't mind that I haven't changed everything you suggested, but I did change a lot of things you said.

I DO mind ... not, they were just suggestions. That's what I'm curious to see. BTW, that approval must have been the quickest in recent RMN history!

EDIT: You're welcome. Hopefully, next time it'll be with less time constraints. :-)
I am so hyped for this! Downloading now. Don't disappoint!
Hey, this was pretty good! A bit slow though.
Oh by the way calunio your mind is completely fucked over. =)
