Just now I played this really cool early access game called Darkest Dungeon. It may say it's early access, but man oh man, I've been playing for 3 hours straight and it doesn't feel like it at all. It's a turn based rpg with random dungeons you can go to, with interesting and varied gameplay mechanics such as the stress meter which will affect your character negatively and will give them negative passive traits most of the time. Sometimes it'll actually give your characters boosts. Unfortunately, it's also quite tough if you don't know what you're doing. At the start of the game, you'll be given a choice of random characters to pick from, ranging from crusader, highwayman, ocultist, Vestal/healer and so on. There's a reason why there's so many to choose from. Every death in the game is permanent, and if you get all of your characters killed, which may happen, you won't get further in this game. So I'll give my tips so you'll survive and hopefully get the best experience out of this game! Tip 1: Get used to the inventory & currency system. This game's inventory system is completely different from what you're used to in usual rpgs. Usually when you get loots like armor, weapons, potions or weapons, you can keep them and then use them later. In this game, once you use items in a mission, those items will be gone after you completed the mission. So let's say you have 10 potions to cure disease at the end of a mission. Once you completed a mission, those 10 potions are GONE! The only ones that you can keep are accessories and sellable items like rubies or precious stones which will be automatically converted into coins after you completed a mission. Before you start any mission in this game, you'll have the option to buy stuff from the store. It's important to know that the most important items you have to buy are torches and foods. You use torches so you'll have a better chance of not having random enemy encounters, and you use food to stay full. Eating food is only important when there's a prompt for it. If you don't have enough food during this prompt, your characters will starve and they will lose a LOT of health and gets stressed out. So my tip before entering a dungeon: buy 8 torches and 8 foods. There are items like a shovel that lets you get rid of a blockade and cure potions, but these costs 250 gold and they're not that useful anyway. The worst that can happen is you take 1 point of damage to your character, and you'll eventually get these items anyway from looting. So fuck these items, don't bother buying them. The game's currency consists of 5 different stuff. The first one is the usual: gold. The other 4 are necessary to get upgrades for various buildings in the hub world: shields, paper scrolls, paintings and statues. Yeah it's weird. These 4 things are very2 important because they allow upgrades for various buildings. Blacksmith to upgrade armor & weapons, guild to upgrade your character skills, taverns to drop down your character stress meter at a much more lower price than before, you get the idea. Always have TONS of these 4 things to upgrade these buildings, and ALWAYS have enough money to upgrade your characters. Tip 2: Just pick 4 or 5 people that you really want to have leveled up. The rest are expendable. Don't be afraid to abort missions if you can't handle it. This is what a typical party menu will look like. To get party members, you go to the stage coach. After completing one mission, there will be new people that you can get from it. The number of people in total you can store are 9 at the beginning and you can upgrade the capacity and the amount of people you can have in a mission. Now because death are permanent in this game, you need to only concentrate on leveling up certain number of characters. Preferably only 4. Why is that? Because the cost of maintaining their stress and equipments are quite high. One character takes 1,000 gold, and most of the time you'll only bring in 1,500 - 3,000 gold after a mission because most probably your characters all die during it. This is my strategy when doing most missions: pick new people from the stage coach and use them for a mission. Most of the time the mission will be quite tough, and because it's most likely that all of your members will have their stress meter maxed out, you have to abort missions and salvage golds that you get from the mission. Stress meter in this game is really easy to get full, and when that happens, your character is basically a liability from that point on. You can just cure their stress, but like I said, it costs a lot of coins and you have to keep as many coins as you can for future uses. You can abort missions by clicking a white flag on the top left of the screen. Once you abort the mission, get rid of the people that has their stress meter maxed out, and pick new people from the stage coach to try again. Do this until you have a lot of gold and upgrade characters that you want. Tip 3: Always have a knight, a ranged attacker and a healer in each missions. This game requires correct characters to pick from before you begin a mission. The way combat works in this game is based on character positions. Certain characters have skills that can only be done in specific positions. Knights can only attack if they're in front, and mages can only give healing spells when they're at the back. What's on the screenshot here is the most ideal party member you can have during the game. You can't have a party that consists of knights on every spot because what's the point if the knights at the back can't attack enemies? Unless of course you have a high level knight which have a ranged combat ability. Even then, you require a healer in every situation because enemies in this game hits HARD. If you're lucky, you can beat enemies in a mission and not get hit at all, but a lot of the times you're going to take a lot of hits. The vestal and the occultist have the best healing spells. Go get them and have them heal your characters all the time to increase your chances of survival. That's my tips for the game! Hope it helps you survive through the game. If you have different tips you can share, please do! Enjoy the game and prepare to die, I mean have fun!
Just saw my brother in law playing this game called Darkest Dungeon. It's an early access game, but it's surprisingly deep and doesn't feel like it's early access. Combat is turn based and there's a lot of characters you can pick before you enter a dungeon. There's a reason why there's so many: this game is quite tough if you don't know what to do. Plus if your character die, he/she's dead for good. Have fun and good luck!
