Red Hook Studios, developers of Darkest Dungeon, a single-player roguelike RPG that has been in development for the preceding nine months, has launched a KickStarter initiative to raise $75,000 to help finish the job. Darkest Dungeon sets itself apart from the typical dungeon crawler by featuring psychological effects on the team that adventures forth.


  • The Affliction System – heroes' personalities are paramount! Contend with paranoia, abusiveness, fear, irrationality, and a host of gameplay-meaningful quirks

  • Striking hand-drawn gothic crowquill art style

  • Innovative turn-based combat pits you against a host of diabolical monsters

  • Classic CRPG and roguelike features, including meaningful permadeath, procedural dungeons, and incredible replay

  • A distinctive game world featuring over a dozen unique playable character classes such as the Plague Doctor, the Highwayman, and even the Leper!

  • Town meta-game – tend to your heroes wounds, both corporeal and cerebral

  • Loot! Gold, jewels, heirlooms, and mystical trinkets. Not to mention upgradable armor, weapons, and consumable supplies.

  • Things That Once Seen Can Never Be Unseen... 

Head to the Darkest Dungeon Kickstarter page for more information.

    I'm kind of confused.. where's the MMO in this? It's a single player RPG.

    Uhm, it's in general discussion which is for non-mmo related content and it even states that it's a single player RPG.


    Somebody, somewhere has better skills as you have, more experience as you have, is smarter than you, has more friends as you do and can stay online longer. Just pray he's not out to get you.

    It's like H.P. Lovecraft designed a dungeon crawler...

    I'm throwing my money at the screen, but nothing's happening!

    Even without the Lovecraftian influence, I'm liking the idea of delving deep into dark, dank ruins infested with undead & aberrations actually having a psychological effect on the player's party. I'll be keeping an eye on this for sure.

    AN' DERE AIN'T NO SUCH FING AS ENUFF DAKKA, YA GROT! Enuff'z more than ya got an' less than too much an' there ain't no such fing as too much dakka. Say dere is, and me Squiggoff'z eatin' tonight!

    Jeff Strain and Undead Labs have stolen money from people who supported their game, Moonrise. They have no respect for their customers whatsoever, and are not deserving of any further support by either gamers or the gaming press. They are liars and thieves, period, and if they were in any other industry they'd be under investigation for fraud. DO NOT SUPPORT JEFF STRAIN OR UNDEAD LABS!!

    You are most welcome and thank YOU all for appreciating the fact that, as MMO players, many of us also love the single player side of the RPG as well. :)
