Darkest Dungeon Is A New Roguelike Sidescrolling RPG, Gets A Kickstarter Campaign

Our reader ‘randir14’ has informed us about the Kickstarter campaign of Darkest Dungeon, a challenging gothic roguelike RPG about the psychological stresses of adventuring. The game’s Kickstarter campaign aims to raise $75K in total and has so far earned $70K. In short, it will manage to hit its initial goal in due time as there are still 30 days left to it.

Here are the key features of Darkest Dungeon:

  • The Affliction System – heroes’ personalities are paramount! Contend with paranoia, abusiveness, fear, irrationality, and a host of gameplay-meaningful quirks

  • Striking hand-drawn gothic crowquill art style

  • Innovative turn-based combat pits you against a host of diabolical monsters

  • Classic CRPG and roguelike features, including meaningful permadeath, procedural dungeons, and incredible replay

  • A distinctive game world featuring over a dozen unique playable character classes such as the Plague Doctor, the Highwayman, and even the Leper!

  • Town meta-game – tend to your heroes wounds, both corporeal and cerebral

  • Loot! Gold, jewels, heirlooms, and mystical trinkets. Not to mention upgradable armor, weapons, and consumable supplies.

  • Things That Once Seen Can Never Be Unseen…

Darkest Dungeon will be coming on the PC and Mac. The team is interested in bringing this game to consoles, Linux, SteamOS, tablet, and even 3DS, though there are no plans for such versions as of yet.
