About

Thank you - we'll meet again!

Sadly this campaign wasn't funded. Our development hasn't stopped yet! For more information check the last Update.

We have a Community Discord Channel, where you can see firsthand what progress DARCO is making:https://discord.gg/jVzsSMy

DARCO takes place in a post-apocalyptic Steampunk setting, in which you’re fighting for survival against mechanical creatures. It is a multiplayer game located on huge ships floating over an endless ocean. You’re not alone though, as you’re also raising a dragon as your companion!

Early Access release will be in May 2018, and the final release is planned for the 4th quarter of 2019.

  • Category: Action Adventure Survival
  • Mode: Multiplayer
  • Server: PvP and PvE (official and dedicated)
  • Platform: PC (Steam)
  • Language: English

As a thank you for all the Backers, who believed in DARCO, we will make a Mausoleum entry:

We will create a mausoleum, a memorial for all the fallen warriors in the Dragon War. The Backers name and a short text (up to 250 figures) will be included and that way each Backer will be one of the fallen heroes.

Risks and challenges

Though our Early Access release is set we need YOU to make it truly great! Depending on how much you invest we can bring more and better features into the game. With your support we can concentrate completely on developing our huge project because we wouldn't have to work part-time on other jobs.
