  • DungeonScape Closing Down!


    Here's some unfortunate news. It seems that Trapdoor Technologies and WotC are parting ways. Trapdoor has been working on DungeonScape, the official D&D 5th Edition electronics tools suite. It seems they intend to continue with and do something with the software themselves, but their relationship with WotC will not continue. What this means for the software is unclear. What this also means for WotC's plans for electronic support of D&D 5E is also a mystery - WotC hasn't traditionally had a good relationship with electronic tools or platforms; in the past eTools and Gleemax met similar fates.

    Today, we have news that is both sobering and hopeful. Wizards of the Coast and Trapdoor Technologies will no longer be working together to develop DungeonScape for Fifth Edition D&D, and we will not be releasing the product in its current form. The beta program on all platforms will be shutting down at noon (MST) on Friday, October 31.



    Greetings friends,

    Today, we have news that is both sobering and hopeful. Wizards of the Coast and Trapdoor Technologies will no longer be working together to develop DungeonScape for Fifth Edition D&D, and we will not be releasing the product in its current form. The beta program on all platforms will be shutting down at noon (MST) on Friday, October 31.

    Although we can’t reveal all of the details regarding the future of DungeonScape, we are happy to say that there is indeed a future—so fear not!

    This project, 100% internally funded, conceptualized, and built by our talented team at Trapdoor, has been a labor of love from the very beginning. We set out to change the way RPGs are played at the table—making our game night more about enjoying the adventure than searching for rules. We still hold true to that quest. We believe that our Story Machine™ is a powerful tool for converting information into something more useful and rich.

    We’re working hard to solidify the details of what’s next for DungeonScape, and we’ll share that information with you when it’s appropriate.

    Until then, please continue to follow us on Twitter and Facebook. We’ll do our very best to answer any questions you have through social media or email.

    Long live the adventure.
    Love,
    The Trapdoor Technologies Team


    Wizards of the Coast responded with a brief statement:


    Wizards of the Coast has ended its relationship with Trapdoor Technologies and their DungeonScape application. If you participated in the beta and have questions regarding the application itself, please contact Trapdoor directly.

    It’s never easy to end a relationship with one of our business partners, but we remain committed to creating great tabletop and digital gaming experiences for Dungeons & Dragons players and DMs around the world.
