Default Darkest Dungeon

September 7th, 2014, 18:48
Darkest Dungeon is a hard-core RPG about the stresses of dungeon crawling. You will lead a band of four heroes on a perilous side-scrolling descent, dealing with a prodigious number of threats to their bodily health, and worse, a relentless assault on their mental fortitude! Five hundred feet below the earth you will not only fight unimaginable foes, but famine, disease, and the stress of the ever-encroaching dark.

Darkest Dungeon focuses on the humanity and psychological vulnerability of the heroes and asks: What emotional toll does a life of adventure take? Darkest Dungeon is not a game where every hero wins the day with shiny armor and a smile. It is a game about hard trade-offs, nearly certain demise, and heroic acts. Prepare to experience an RPG like nothing you have played before

$50.00 pre-order seems kind of high to me. I will wait for the bargain bin.

I was looking forward to this but that is a fairly high price point for people that were not in the KS. If I personally knew the artists I'd feel better about supporting that price, but seeing as the core gameplay is incredibly simple and its only the artwork and mechanic premise that grabs my attention its hard to drop $50 for it.

I can't remember if they decided to do the $350k stretch goal or not. I will have to go back over my KS emails.

That's normal now as other kickstarters have charged more. I look at it as both a pre-order, and helping the developer make the game better.

You can always wait till it's released and sometimes offered cheaper.

They are going EA, it is very likely that the entry offer is going to be on steam (like $20) The bare one.
Offers on their site come with physical goodies, I dont think Steam does that kind.

I didn't see any actual gameplay video on their site so I have no idea really how the game will play or if it even looks fun.

The premise seems interesting but I'll wait for reviews and a cheaper price before I even consider it.

I posted two new demo videos in the last month.

Here is the link to the newest one.

Thanks for the gameplay link. The art style is nice but I would get bored of that gameplay pretty fast. Looks more like a tablet game than a computer game.
