Darkest Dungeon - A New RPG About Adventuring

by Couchpotato, 2014-01-27 05:01:51

Darkest Dungeon is a new RPG being developed by a studio called Red Hook Studios.

Tactical, strategic, and deceptively deep, combat in Darkest Dungeon combines nostalgia with the elegance of modern design. It will challenge you in fresh new ways. Party order is crucial for setting up attacks, but it can also expose your heroes to threats.  At all times, you must juggle the need to do damage with the importance of protecting the health and minds of your party members.  Train, upgrade, and adjust your loadout to find the right combination of skills, honing your party into a four-person monster-wrecking Special Forces team.

The site also has news about the upcoming Kickstarter and Steam.

We'll have a new trailer that gives you some backstory on the gameworld, as well as some actual gameplay footage, screenshots and additional information about the game systems - including a preview of the Town!

The new trailer has been dubbed "The House of Ruin", and will feature Wayne June reprising his role as the narrator, and Stuart Chatwood bringing the business with an epic score.

As the campaign progresses, we'll have developer video updates, a livestream of a new class reveal, OST preview, and much more.

If you're in the know, and following the game at all, the best thing you can do to help is back us early.  A strong first push on Kickstarter is usually integral to the campaign's overall success and will really have a huge impact on our day 1 showing.

Oh yeah, and we're approved to distribute on Steam, too.
