Are you ready for a side-scrolling roguelike descent into dungeon madness? Darkest Dungeon has just emerged on Kickstarter today, asking for a modest $75k... which it has already blown past.

We recruit, train and lead a group of dungeon dwellers who most overcome numerous challenges in this turn-based, roguelike CRPG. We'll have to battle "stress, famine, disease" as well.

Developer Red Hook say this is a game about "hard trade-offs, nearly certain demise, and heroic reversals." For now Darkest Dungeon is heading for PC via Steam when it releases.

"Uncompromising, unforgiving, and unconventional, we present a fresh take on the dungeon crawler that elevates the importance of sound tactics and a character's mental state over their gear," pitches Red Hook in their Kickstarter.

"You will 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."

Darkest Dungeon Features:

? 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

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