Immerse yourself in an eldritch nightmare that’s as challenging as it is innovative with Darkest Dungeon’s dismal and hopeless world.
If you’re looking for an indie game that’s held in higher esteem by the PC gaming community than the average AAA title, then Darkest Dungeon might just be an excellent place to start – if you’re into gory horror, eldritch designs and punishingly hard RNG-based gameplay, doubly so.
The premise of Darkest Dungeon takes a classic RPG formula of turn-based combat and flips it on its head with an initially complex-looking system; where you’re flung into battles with next to no help, at the mercy of the horrific creatures you’re encountering. Sounds appealing, right?
Unlike many of the light and bright indie titles that claim to be child-friendly and fun to pick up and play, Darkest Dungeon is anything but; instead focusing on a dystopian nightmare environment with a heavy focus on despair and horror through a very Lovecraftian lens that fans of the darker side of things will love.
