Gather and venture forth
Darkest Dungeon is a turn-based game where players build a party and work to keep them alive as they delve into horrifying crypts fighting evil monsters — but not all scars are physical and mental trauma must also be dealt with.
Yeah, ok. I'm gonna put it nicely. The first game was fine. Like with Rogue Legacy 2, and many indie game sequels I don't feel they bring a lot of new gameplay to merit buying the game again. Even with Overcooked 2, it's just a better version of the game but with slight improvements. So basically I don't feel a need to buy this same game again. Much less when it's on Epic Store. Gotta make a better game to make me buy it on Epic store.
