Dungeon Alchemist, the AI-powered application to create maps for fantasy games, is launching its third major update on January 31.

The Winter Wonderland content update will be available to anyone who owns Dungeon Alchemist on Steam. Cover all outdoor areas in a cozy white carpet of snow and make use of many new seasonal objects such as snowmen, ice thrones and sleighs! With more than 500 new assets and a host of new functionalities, creatives can express themselves like never before.

In 2021, the two Belgians Wim De Hert and Karel Crombecq launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for their dream: creating the best AI-powered mapmaking application. The project was successful in just 3 hours and, thanks to a revenue of 2.4 million euros, also earned a place in the top ten list of the ten most successful board game Kickstarter projects of all time.

Dungeon Alchemist has since taken the role-playing experience of over 100,000 TTRPG players to the next level. The enthusiastic community shares their creations daily to inspire other creators and push the boundaries of the mapmaking process together.

Dungeon Alchemist is an AI-powered mapmaking tool with a fantasy twist. With the tool you can create impressive content of the highest quality in just a few clicks. Choose a theme, start designing and Dungeon Alchemist generates detailed maps that you can print, share or even import directly into your favorite Virtual Tabletop Application. The unique AI algorithm automatically equips your concept with walls, floors, objects and lighting, so you can focus on the details that make your map unique.​
