Dark Gates On Desura AlphaFunding !

Posted: 7th August 2012 by Maxim Bardin in Uncategorized

Bartosz Debski from DFour Games  informed me about the alpha release of their RPG game Dark Gates.

Anyone is free to download and test the 0.2.0 alpha version and decide if they want to support the development of the game.

Dark Gates combat is similar to the great game Disciples, with the addition of more cool combat magic !

It also got random generated maps which are never the same, with the addition of monsters, traps, puzzles, items, party, magics and skills – the game should be great as it evolves.

Gameplay trailer – Desura
if you ever played paper RPG Death Maze, Citadel of Blood or Labirynt ?mierci then you already know this game. DG is a tribute to this RPG (three names but game the same). In Dark Gates you lead your team of 6 heroes into dungeon where they will fight their way through in order to destroy Dark Gates and evil mage who is the master of the dungeon. Main feature of the game is dungeon itself. This is no predefined layout and every time you play, map is always different. Dungeon creates itself as you play. In your quest you will find monsters, magical items, trap, puzzles and treasures. Glory awaits one who destroys Dark Gates and evil mage.

Game is in alpha stage, lot’s of stuff missing or not working as intended.

Alpha funding is there to make sure that Dark Gates can be finally released and provide a quality content.

So what to expect in near future from DG ?

  • I have planned a “save system”, static maps support and with static maps support maybe some online leaderboards,
  • Map editor for fully and semi static maps, “save team” – where you can choose previously assembled teams and more,
  • Support for more languages
  • Finishing, refining all the missing art and animations.

Bare in mind that those are plans and please don’t take them for granted but still this is the stuff that i want to include in this game either as a part of the official release or some post release DLC.
