This is great! Hmm, will have to think of a few good questions…

Darkest Dungeon, too?
IIRC, these have already been answered in their KS comments (or thereabouts). AFAIK, the answers would go something like this:

a) Yes, but you'll have a roster of characters, c. 16-20 total, so one death (or ten) isn't necessarily game over. Think of X-Com.
b) Yes, but each has its own "theme" and difficulty level, so it's not completely random. They're also toying with an idea of having some fixed (i.e. handmade) parts inside the generated dungeon; but for the most part they're going to be randomly generated.
