Darkest Dungeon

Ruin has come to our family.

Darkest Dungeon opening.

Darkest Dungeon is one my favorite dungeon crawler games. What makes this game special is how you play the game. You not only face down various monsters, but your band of heroes are effected by everything around them, including the amount of light–or lack thereof–in the dungeons. What’s compelling is the gothic Lovecraftian setting, and the sharp, clever writing.

You remember our venerable house, opulent and imperial, gazing proudly from its stoic perch above the moor.

Wayne June has a terrific voice, which works perfectly as the Narrator, who also turns out to be the man who went mad and killed himself during the opening. As you play, you learn more about the secrets harbored by the Narrator, a man who went mad after surviving the terrors of the dungeon.

In order the appreciate this game, you must either watch someone play it, or snag a copy for yourself. It’s a challenging RPG, but whenever you defeat the monsters in front of you, you will feel a thrill of accomplishment.

This is a tricky game, but one I still enjoy playing from time to time. I’m not as big into gaming as I used to be in the past, but I still enjoy playing video games every now and again.

You journey to the Hamlet, a place that’s essentially a run-down town, one in which you repair and use to fit your needs. (Like lowering your character’s stress levels.)

If you love creative RPG’s, Lovecraft, or the horror genre in general, this game is for you. Darkest Dungeon doesn’t disappoint.
