How the Dungeon Runners Team Created a Ten Ton Hammer - Interview with Mark Tucker

Think of the poor utensils! Get a Ten Ton Hammer instead.

One of the biggest perks to being on the Dungeon Runners crew is their freedom to think outside of the box. With weapons that come straight from your kitchen drawer and armor that is apparently made of baby seals, the Dungeon Runners team rarely puts away an idea if it would work in their game. So when Cody "Micajah" Bye mentioned that "having a Ten Ton Hammer in Dungeon Runners would be cool", the game's lead designer, Mark Tucker, took him seriously. Now that the Ten Ton Hammer is built and currently in QA, Cody and Mark sat down to talk about the process of building a weapon and how cool the Ten Ton Hammer will be.

Mark: I'll start off by saying this: The Ten Ton Hammer kicks ass. I've been running with it on my internal test server characters and going through all the new encounters with it. Honestly, I've been using it simply because it does kick ass. It is the hardest hitting weapon in the game if you're looking at damage-per-hit. It's still balanced, but it just hits REALLY hard. That said, it is quite a bit slower than something like a katana, but that doesn't take away from the fact that it lays down the law when it smacks you.
