Get Darkest Dungeon for Free

Darkest Dungeon is now available for free on the Epic Games Store as the Christmas Day offering in their 15-day game-a-day giveaway spree to celebrate the holidays. This is yours to keep as long as you grab it before 11:00 am EST tomorrow, when the next freebie takes its place. The game's DLC is also on sale until tomorrow, and you can pick up a copy of The Musketeer DLC for free. The track record of predictions in this tweet remains perfect, so it's likely tomorrow's freebie will be My Time at Portia. This description sheds some light on the Darkest Dungeon:
Darkest Dungeon® is a challenging gothic roguelike turn-based RPG about the psychological stresses of adventuring.

Recruit, train, and lead a team of flawed heroes through twisted forests, forgotten warrens, ruined crypts, and beyond. You'll battle not only unimaginable foes, but stress, famine, disease, and the ever-encroaching dark. Uncover strange mysteries, and pit the heroes against an array of fearsome monsters with an innovative strategic turn-based combat system.

Features

  • The Affliction System – battle not only monsters, but stress! Contend with paranoia, masochism, 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
  • Narration system to celebrate your successes...and failures
  • Rest your weary, shell-shocked characters in town at the Tavern or the Abbey to keep their stress in check.

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.

And this is the same experience I and several of my friends had with the game. There were just too many oppositional mechanics at play for me to really enjoy the ride. Once I got to a decent level and had most characters in a balanced state, it just wasn't worth the risk to keep playing, since I knew that my position would never improve, and probably never even reach the point it was at at that moment ever again. There's something wrong with a game mechanic that compels a player to stop playing the game...
I really enjoyed the journey though. There's some great tactical gameplay there, along with the excellent art and world building. I think folks should play it, and make their own minds up about whether to play the last dungeon.
I'm a smoldering volcano of virility. At least, that's what I tell myself.
