ADD TO YOUR WISHLIST!

DARQ is coming to Steam mid 2019 - add it to your wishlist if you want to be notified when it's out.

ABOUT THIS GAME

DARQ tells the story of Lloyd, a boy who becomes aware of the fact that he is dreaming. To Lloyd's misfortune, the dream quickly turns into a nightmare and all attempts to wake up end in failure. While exploring the darkest corners of his subconscious, Lloyd learns how to survive the nightmare by bending the laws of physics and manipulating the fluid fabric of the dream world.

Apart from gravity-defying puzzles, Lloyd will have to use stealth when nearby enemies. He has no chance of winning in an open confrontation, since the creatures he will encounter are much more powerful and faster than him. Instead, he has to rely on careful planning to avoid getting detected.

FEATURES

  • Psychological horror set in a lucid dream, relying on slow build and creepy atmosphere rather than gore and violence.
  • Unique artstyle and detailed environment to explore
  • Music written by 5-time ASCAP Award winning composer Wlad Marhulets and mixed by Adam Schmidt, known for his work on Inception, The Dark Knight Rises, Pirates of the Caribbean.
  • Sound design by Bjørn Jacobsen, known for his work on such games as Cyberpunk 2077 and Hitman.
  • Puzzles that involve bending the laws of physics (walking on walls and ceilings) , manipulating the dream world (moving things, rotating rooms), collecting and using found objects, and avoiding enemies.
  • Hidden secrets to find (optional, for hardcore players only)

For this recurring segment, we will be highlighting the five biggest stories on IndieDB for the prior week.

The Week of February 10 2019



It's finally here: the free pre-alpha demo of Starxium 20XX! You can play with up to 16 players and up to 8 teams. If you want to try the multiplayer, you'll need to have Steam launched. Otherwive, you still can drive alone with the freeride mode.

Old Hue, new Hue!

PREVIEW: Pine

From: Twirlbound


Pine is an action adventure simulation game. Based in a world where humans never reached the top of the food chain, you play as a young adult named Hue, tasked with finding a new home for his reclining species. Through diplomacy, combat and exploration, Hue learns to work with and against a variety of tribes that are struggling for survival.


Foundation is a grid-less, sprawling medieval city building simulation with a heavy focus on organic development, monument construction and resource management. The game features in-depth resource management akin to the Anno (Dawn of Discovery) series, expertly mixed with city building elements from Settlers, SimCity, and Pharaoh all topped with narrative encounters inspired by Crusader Kings II to create the ultimate medieval ant-farm simulation.

Learning new skills takes time (9000 hours as of now), but it's easier if you learn to love the process.
