I found this game to be just too brutal and depressing as well as too RNG.
Same. I played it until the point where it was time to go into the final dungeon and then I just stopped. I didn't want to lose all my characters and gear I'd worked so hard to obtain. In my game world, the heroes surrounded the darkest dungeon and prevented it from spreading, boarded it up and put up signs warning people not to go in.
It's funny, I did the exact same thing: got to the end dungeon and never played it. For me it was "Okay, I need to be fully rested and alert when I go into this last dungeon as to not get slaughtered." And I never got to that state.
All that said, I loved this game: the mechanics, the art style, the character quips, the enemy designs. It's all really good stuff. Yes it's dark, and yes you have to be careful or lose characters, but once you've upgraded the characters and town a bit, the deaths fall off and you can focus on a core group.
Highly worth your time, especially as you got it free.
I'm a smoldering volcano of virility. At least, that's what I tell myself.
