Here’s an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
“Darkest Dungeon is a challenging gothic roguelike turn-based RPG about the psychological stresses of adventuring.
Recruit, train, and lead a team of flawed heroes through twisted forests, forgotten warrens, ruined crypts, and beyond. You’ll battle not only unimaginable foes, but stress, famine, disease, and the ever-encroaching dark. Uncover strange mysteries, and pit the heroes against an array of fearsome monsters with an innovative strategic turn-based combat system.
• The Affliction System – battle not only monsters, but stress! Contend with paranoia, masochism, fear, irrationality, and a host of gameplay-meaningful quirks!
• Striking hand-drawn gothic crowquill art style.
• Innovative turn-based combat pits you against a host of diabolical monsters.
• Narration system to celebrate your successes…and failures.
• 14 (and counting!) playable hero classes, including Plague Doctor, Hellion, and even the Leper!
• Camp to heal wounds or deliver inspiring speeches.
• Rest your weary, shell-shocked characters in town at the Tavern or the Abbey to keep their stress in check.
Classic CRPG and roguelike features, including meaningful permadeath, procedural dungeons, and incredible replay
