Immortal Darkness: Curse of the Pale King is a dark fantasy RPG dungeon crawler, with challenging real-time tactical combat, a wide variety of spells, and a dark and brooding dungeon full of lethal enemies, sadistic traps, and mind-bending puzzles.

In a world almost entirely consumed by the curse of vampirism, a last desperate battle raged. And in the final hour, when the last light of hope guttered and threatened to fail, a hero out of legend known only as Shade appeared like lightning from a clear sky.  Humanity survived, but the price was high, for Shade had been bitten.  Slowly but inevitably, Shade would be transformed, unless the progenitor of the blood line, a creature called the Pale King, was destroyed first.  At last, in a dank, foetid, ancient ruin from a people long forgotten, Shade has located the lair of the Pale King of the Vampyr.  It is a war for the future of the world, but the fight is now personal.

You are Shade, an ancient and legendary vampire hunter, who has been bitten, and now struggles against the vampiric curse. You must fight your way through a twisted labyrinth of horror and death to finally face the Pale King, lord of all Vampires, before succumbing to the vampiric curse yourself.

Help guide Shade through a dungeon crawling platform game straight out of your nightmares in Immortal Darkness: Curse of the Pale King.

"This is the game we've always wanted to make," said Damon DuBois, Creative Lead on the project. "In many ways it is a love letter to all the great RPGs we've played over the last few decades, whether on a game system or a tabletop." Chris Shrigley, Technical Lead and Producer for the project added, "We wanted the game to be a throwback to the traditional, single player games of the past, and to capture as much of the heart and soul of the classic dungeon crawling experience, as possible."

Immortal Darkness: Curse of The Pale King is in development for PS4, Xbox One, and PC (Q2 2018).
