Darkest Dungeon was one of the best proponents of the Early Access model when it became available early last year, and while the development process wasn’t without a few bumps it’s pleasing to see the title have pride of place on the Steam page to mark its full release.
If you’re not familiar with Darkest Dungeon, it’s a turn-based roguelike RPG where you’re tasked with managing the psychological scars adventuring leaves on your party as much as the monsters you find within. Red Hook created a gothic, almost macabre style that’s immediately catching and the game has a great (if sometimes repetitive) narrator to boot.
It’ll set you back just over $29 (US$20) to jump on board with the latest CRPG, which is a high enough price that most people will baulk at an impulse purchase. Here’s Kirk’s initial impressions of the game to help you out.
