Darkest Dungeon’s Steam Reviews Paint A Terrifying Image

Darkest Dungeon has been topping the Steam charts lately. What are players first impressions?

Darkest Dungeon has been getting a lot of buzz lately. Its been described as Diablo II meets XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and if that’s true, we’re already sold.

Here’s how developer Red Hook Studios describes the game:

Darkest Dungeon is a challenging gothic roguelike RPG about the psychological stresses of adventuring. You will lead a band of heroes on a perilous side-scrolling descent, dealing with a prodigious number of threats to their bodily health, and worse, a relentless assault on their mental fortitude! Five hundred feet below the earth you will not only fight unimaginable foes, but famine, disease, and the stress of the ever-encroaching dark. Darkest Dungeon focuses on the humanity and psychological vulnerability of the heroes and asks: What emotional toll does a life of adventure take?

It’s still in early access, so we don’t have a review up, but here is Darkest Dungeon as told by Steam users who have been brave enough to delve into the game in its pre-release state.

As long as you can handle brutal difficulty and a super dark atmosphere (that should be clear enough from the title though), Darkest Dungeon looks pretty fantastic.
