Dioramas, Workshop, and Crimson Court!

Posted by Tyler Sigman (Creator)

Hey Backers!

We’re overdue for an update and have lots of exciting news, so let’s get to it!

First up, Dioramas!

Check out some of the images of the fantastic prototype diorama and packaging! Panda Mfg did a great job and after some final tweaks we will be approving them for manufacturing. After that it takes a couple of months to do mass production and ship them back to us for distribution. So while there is still some time before these arrive at your homes, we can’t be more excited to see progress!

Missed the Kickstarter campaign and want to purchase a diorama? We will be selling some of these limited edition dioramas online after we ship to our backers.

Art Book and Prints 

We have manufactured the prints and now just need to have Chris sign them and we can begin distributing. That will be done soon.

Art book creation is progressing and we will finish it up after we ship The Crimson Court DLC. (See below.)

Steam Workshop Support! 

Last month we released our official integration of Steam Workshop! We’ve always wanted to support mods for Darkest Dungeon, and going back to the Kickstarter we listed it as a stretch goal. Though at the time we didn’t reach that level of funding, due to our success through Early Access, we decided to fully incorporate Workshop after release. Last month marked the beginning of that support, and we cannot be more excited to see what our players come up with!

Check out the Workshop page!  

Crimson Court 

A few weeks back, we started the slow trickle of information about the upcoming DLC. The small blog post earlier last month that gave a high level look at the expansion’s scope, but if in case you missed it, here’s the link.

We did an article for Game Informer and that coverage should be live later today for subscribers and will be printed in their magazine next week. In that article we give the first glimpses of some new enemies and The Courtyard dungeon region - so keep your eyes out for that.

Most recently, the Crimson Court DLC page on Steam has gone live! You can now add it your Steam wishlist and receive future notifications for when it goes on sale!

That’s all for now! We will post another update once we get some more details on the Art Book and prints, as well as a release date and price for the Crimson Court. For now, happy hunting and keep your torch bright!

      I was so stupid for not getting the diorama when I backed this. ARG!

      FYI, the link to the previous article on Crimson Court is broken. It currently points to http://%20http// (note the extra "http" at the beginning). It should instead be

      You know, I've been kicking myself for not including the diorama for quite some time now. Now you're just rubbing it in. I hope to be able to get hold of a copy if they eventually become available.

      Awesome, they look lovely, can hardly wait.

      Any chance Darkest Dungeon will make a Nintendo Switch debut? Would buy again at full price!

      @Eli - Yes we plan on selling the art book, just like the dioramas, after we fulfill our backer orders. Where will you be able to buy these? We are working with partners right now to get a store set up to handle these. So stay tuned!

      Where will we be able to buy the extra dioramas once the rewards have been shipped? I'd LOVE to get my hands on one!

      Are there still plans on selling the Art Book after the initial rewards are fulfilled?
