Darkest Dungeon is FUNDED Thanks to You!
Thanks to you – your pledges, your passion and your incredible support – Darkest Dungeon is over 400% funded and well on it's way to being the game we've always dreamed it could be. Whether you pledged, emailed, tweeted or helped to spread the word in any way, we are grateful.
Speaking for myself (Chris) this has been the most incredible and rewarding experience of my career. This game started as a scribble in a sketchbook, a loose idea that somehow stuck around. To have worked so hard and be so validated by our peers, gamers, and friends is a truly special feeling.
Special thanks to the fans who have supported our efforts from the first moment we launched the 'Terror & Madness' trailer last October. The encouragement they gave reassured us that we were on the right path, and encouraged us to push ourselves further.
We'd also like to thank Sean Megaw and Fathom Interactive for their help and support. They've been wonderful, providing us with an exceptional office environment to work from, sound advice, and candid feedback.
We humbly take your support as both a validation of our direction & a mandate to create a great game. A game worthy of your pledges and excitement. A game that will make you agonize over your choices, think hard about your tactics, and reward you for a job well done.

$300k Stretch Goal Unlocked: Color Customization!
You can now adjust the colors of your heroes! Each hero can be easily customized by selecting one of the several available palettes. Each color scheme will be hand selected to fit the tone of the game. Organize your parties by color, or highlight your favourite heroes by giving them a special look. Also, let's not forget red shirts for the FNGs!
When the going gets tough, the tough bring artillery!
Heavily armored and nigh immovable, the Arbalest can hold the line in the face of any opposition. Her massive crossbow can suppress and eviscerate oncoming attackers, paving the way for a full scale rush! Bring some serious firepower on your next run – bring the Arbalest.
We're going to GDC! You can expect a bit of a blackout for the next week as we recover from the campaign, hit GDC, and reorient our production efforts.
We'll be in touch with another update next week where we cover some of the questions you'll no doubt be wanting to know, like next steps for us, our plan for backer updates (probably monthly), and what information we'll need from you.
Website update and content overhaul: We're also going to update our website soon with the latest wallpapers, forum avatars, FAQ info and more. The Kickstarter page will continue to be the primary point of contact with you, our backers, but you can look forward updated content on the game's site as well.
Just give us a little time to get sorted and recover! :)
Darkest Dungeon @ PAX East
We're bringing a playable demo to PAX East in Boston in a few short weeks! (April 11-13) We certainly hope you can make it down and get your hands on the build, but if not, rest assured we'll be making videos and imagery from the convention available online after the fact.
Once again, a sincere thank you!
