Originally, The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk is a role-playing parody that started as an audio saga. This humorous adventure takes place in a medieval-fantasy world. Stereotypical role-playing game characters enter The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk searching for a dangerous artefact. Starring probably the worst line-up of heroes of all time, the saga makes fun of the classical pen & paper shenanigans, quarrels and mishaps.
Very popular in France, the license diversified and also became a band (The Naheulband), a series of comic books and novels (currently ongoing), a role-playing game and a board game. The Amulet of Chaos is the first video game in the Dungeon of Naheulbeuk wacky universe.
Beyond the hilarious universe it is set in, the game is above all designed as an ambitious Tactical RPG, drawing inspiration from classics such as Baldur’s Gate, Divinity: Original Sin and X-Com.
