Huh. Not sure how I feel about "Dungeon!" as a name for an OSR game, given that "Dungeon!" is also an old school board game published by TSR that, to me at least, is tied up with my memories of the OSR/1E/BD&D era pretty inextricably. (And it still holds up: I play one of the more recent versions with my kids.)

If you like ancient gloomy forests, the Symbaroum bundle is probably worth it for the art book alone. The art is just amazing, with some of the best environments and strange mysterious entities I’ve ever seen in gaming art.
