Darkest Dungeon is a turn-based, cRPG game, in a dark fantasy setting. The action takes place in a grim fantasy world, with its technological level similar to that of the Middle Ages. The campaign mostly takes place in the ruins of an abandoned fortress and the enormous dungeons underneath it.
In Darkest Dungeon you will spend most of your time exploring the endless corridors of the ruins, however, the quests themselves are constructed differently to those you would find in your ordinary RPG. The key to success in Darkest Dungeon is not the equipment of your adventurers but their emotional state. The members of your team are not stout-hearted heroes and the horrors you will encounter during your journeys will have a great influence on how they feel and behave, forcing great stress on them and sometimes changing their character.
The combat in Darkest Dungeon features a turn based system. The formation and placement of your heroes is the key and you have to think carefully about your every move, if one of your team dies his death is permanent and you will never have a chance of getting him back. Monsters aren’t the only danger you will face on your road, traps could also prove dangerous just like internal conflicts within your party and darkness, the torches you carry burn out over time and spending too much time in darkness inflicts more stress on the members of your quest.
The riches you gather can be used to renovate the town, which opens new parts of it, allowing you more options of stress relief and upgrading your heroes.
