I've known about this game for quite a while, but just bought it the other day. If you dig H.P. Lovecraft and dungeon crawling, this game is definitely for you. 

 

From their website:

 

"Darkest Dungeon is a challenging gothic RPG about the stresses of dungeon crawling. You will lead a band of heroes on a perilous side-scrolling descent, dealing with a prodigious number of threats to their bodily health, and worse, a relentless assault on their mental fortitude! Five hundred feet below the earth you will not only fight unimaginable foes, but famine, disease, and the stress of the ever-encroaching dark. Darkest Dungeon focuses on the humanity and psychological vulnerability of the heroes and asks: What emotional toll does a life of adventure take?
 
Darkest Dungeon is not a game where every hero wins the day with shiny armor and a smile. It is a game about hard trade-offs, nearly certain demise, and heroic acts."

My buddy has this game, he played a bit before we jumped into something else, and it seemed alright. If you've ever played a "rogue-like" game, this one is no different. (balls-to-the-wall difficulty, each game is a new game kinda thing.)

It's not my cup of tea, but it was neat.

I enjoy watching it, oddly enough. But playing it sounds... stressful.

I really dig the Mignola-esque artwork. Of all the characters, i think the Leper and the Occultist are my favorites. I wish they'd make some minis for this game!
