Darkest Dungeon is about making the best of a bad situation. Quests will fail or must be abandoned. Heroes will die. And when they die, they stay dead. Progress autosaves constantly, so actions are permanent.


The game expects a lot out of you. How far will you push your adventurers? How much are you willing to risk in your quest to restore the Hamlet? What will you sacrifice to save the life of your favourite hero?

~ The premise of the game

Darkest Dungeon is a hard-core RPG about the stresses of dungeon crawling. You will lead a band of four 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?

Setting[edit | edit source]

Sketches of inspirational elements during the design phase of Darkest Dungeon.
The game is characterised by its dark Gothic setting and atmosphere, strengthened by ominous cinematics and stressful gameplay accompanied by a ruthless narrator.

In the world of Darkest Dungeon, corruption and horrors have escaped the forgotten darkness of the deep and have made their way into the world. As if being plagued by disease and misery wasn't enough, the people must now withstand unthinkable nightmares roaming the land.

The cause of this evil was the massive excavation in search of obscure powers, held by the remainder of an ancient noble family, now stained with the guilt of armageddon.
