Darkest Dungon: An EA Review Excerpt


"Victory cannot come without madness"

Things would not end well for me.

I should have been tipped off when, a few meters from the dungeon entrance, my Vestal got caught in an Iron Maiden while looking for treasure, becoming claustrophobic in the process. Yet I pressed on. Then that filthy kleptomaniac of a Crusader (some holy warrior he was) stole a thousand gold right in the faces of his companions. Still I moved forward into the dark. Perusing a stack of scrolls, the Crusader somehow became a compulsive gambler.

“It’s okay”, I thought, “This can still work out.”

Neither of these warriors would see the daylight, struck down in the final room of the dungeon, victory within their grasp. Half of my party slain; forever gone. The Highwayman and the Plague Doctor alone would survive to spread the tales of horror through the bar and the brothel; a further black mark upon the name of the Cuddly Puppy family.

This was the first dungeon of the game.

Curse you RNGesus.

This was the intro from my review over on a new Indonesian/English game blog, gaming.arshvein.xyz

A member since... A really long time ago, Panda is a Dtoid moderator, as well as a former contributor of previews, reviews, and general stuff.

Powered by superelectromagnetic energy and allergy medicine, Panda was constructed primarily to play video games, then restart them halfway through. Is it ADHD or are they doing it to annoy you?

When not failing to finish video games, Panda will gladly talk about capybaras, music history, or why you should watch that weird anime from 2006 (or, I dunno, gunpla or Kamen Rider or whatever).

Will probably die from trying to pet a bat.

Asking Panda their favorite *Insert Thing Here* will lead to a 1,500-word reply or an anxiety attack.
