'Darkest Dungeon' Announced, Seeks Crowd Funding - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Feb. 11, 2014 @ 7:12 p.m. PST

Darkest Dungeon is a challenging gothic roguelike RPG about the psychological stresses of adventuring.

You will recruit, train, and lead a team of flawed heroes through twisted forests, forgotten warrens, ruined crypts and beyond. You'll battle not only unimaginable foes, but stress, famine, disease, and the ever-encroaching dark. Uncover strange mysteries, and pit the heroes against an array of fearsome monsters with an innovative strategic turn-based combat system.

You will have to tend to charactersā€™ spirits as much as you do to their Hit Points. But in these grim situations, you'll find opportunities for true heroism!

Red Hook Studios has launched a kickstarter campaign looking for $75,000 to fund the development of Darkest Dungeon.

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 reversals. 

Do you have what it takes to survive in the forgotten corners of the Darkest Dungeon?
