2016 IO Indies: Best Gameplay - Winner
Darkest Dungeon by Red Hook Studios introduced a fascinating new mechanic to the dungeon crawler genre... sanity management. Not only do players have to manage their character's sanity, but each and every character is different, requiring the use of diverse strategic methods in order to keep the gang of Heroes in fighting shape. Darkest Dungeon is an extremely well-rounded game that boasts some impressive visuals full of dark ink and ominous shadows.
Initially released in January of 2016, Darkest Dungeon has maintained a loyal following throughout the year, and it's not hard to understand why. As you venture through the depths of Darkest Dungeon, you'll witness firsthand the kind of toll adventures take. With some fantastic combat mechanics, and an addicting RPG theme, Darkest Dungeon will permeate deep into your subconscious.
Congratulations to Red Hook Studios on their seriously addicting indie title, Darkest Dungeon!
