Darkest Dungeon is a challenging gothic RPG developed by Red Hook Games and released on January 19, 2016. In Darkest Dungeon the player leads a band of Heroes on a perilous side-scrolling descent, dealing with a prodigious number of threats to both their physical and mental health. Five hundred feet below the earth the player fights unimaginable Foes, 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?
The combat in Darkest Dungeon combines nostalgia with the elegance of modern design. Party order is crucial for setting up attacks, but it can also expose the Heroes to threats. At all times, the player has to juggle the need to do damage with the importance of protecting the health and minds of party members. Provisions and Trinkets can be used to adjust, train, and upgrade the player's loadout to find the right combination of skills (together with Camping Skills) to defeat the threats in their way.Darkest Dungeon is available in many different editions for various platforms, including Windows/Mac/Linux, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, Xbox One, and more.
