June Update: The Flesh is Willing

Welcome to the June update!  Work continues to move along - we've made big strides in the town gameplay, as well as many of the much-needed core systems: upgrades, economy and progression.  Art-wise we've been adding the next 4 heroes: the Bounty Hunter (featured in a gamespot article below!), the Grave Robber, the Occultist, and the Hellion, as well as new monsters and...

Boss Reveal!

Check out the first glimpse of a Darkest Dungeon boss: a powerful summoner that twists flesh and reinforces his ranks with the reanimated dead!  More details to come!



Keir has been dedicated to town functionality for some time, and has gotten the core workings of our buildings up and running.  The tavern, abbey, blacksmith, guild hall, etc are all doing what they're supposed to, and we've started making the UI more user-friendly.

Weekly Twitch

We're officially 'regulars' on the IndieMEGABOOTH Twitch Channel!  You can join us every Thursday at 4pm PST for look behind the scenes.  Art, design discussions, play sessions, animation - each week we'll try and do something different, but if we can't, it'll be Chris drawing his way through the mountain of monsters we need!

Sweet Gamespot Article!

Getting the nod from Gamespot was huge for us - and the article is great!

Kickstarter Shout-out!

Go back Witchmarsh! 1920's detectives + occult + gorgeous!

      I hope there are going to be different screens and backgrounds for the various buildings in town. Moving between them and seeing the interiors would make it feel much more like a real place.

      "Twist flesh", eh? That sounds more terrifying than anything undeath by itself could cook up. Body horrors!

      Hmm. That summoner looks more like an inquisitor to me.

      Your savegame name will be there, so in your case, the Mabry Estate

      I'm ready to take on this Boss! On the town screen, does the Bourassa Estate have to do with your family grounds? Or are there other estates that you will be possibly delving into...

    9. Tyler Sigman Creator on

      Yes, we're absolutely planning to do more play streams now that we have the weekly slot. We're not quite ready to debut the town stuff just yet, but we'll work up to it over the summer.

      Probably a common request, but could we get a Tyler Fights stream some Thursday, maybe including party selection, dungeon delving, then Town management (assuming the party isn't incinerated/pulped/devoured)?
