Darsana is a first person medieval indie game with RPG and FPS elements

· Battle as either the Undead or the Knights in the ‘Destroy The God' game mode in which each team must protect their own god statue and destroy the enemies' god statue located in their lair or take on the other team in head to head team deathmatch.

· Increase damage, weapon accuracy, arrow velocity speeds, and swing speeds by level progression of weapons as they are used to slay your enemies

· Choose between the might of melee weapons ranging from fast small swipes of dagger to the large heavy handed blows of the battle axe, archery with the long bow or crossbow, or magic with the elements of lightning, fire, and leech

· One up your foes with additional items such as mana and health potions for quick boosts for that next big spell or surviving a blow, explosive arrows for radius damage with archery based weapons, or the buckler for sustainable blocking at higher percentages of deflection

· All free, all online, all stand alone!

After the initial release of Darsana beta 1.0 there was a hotfix within 24 hours to combat the major issues, now that those are fixed more features can be added and hopefully improve the overall gameplay and look of Darsana.

Current beta 1.1 upcoming features:

  • All new animations / hands for weapons
  • Charged attacks for melee weapons
  • infinite blocking with all weapons even without buckler
  • learned abilities while leveling up with magic staffs
  • Also due to engine updates (thanks to LordHavoc):

  • Client side prediction
  • HDR bloom

    If there was singleplayer in it I would put it on my game rig witch doesnt have any internet atm .. or I should wait till I get internet on it again .. nah every game that wants to be good should have singleplayer feature that is my opinion but I think its a darn good 1 lol IDC if it would be bots or whatever .. does this have bots?

    What this game needs is its own forum to plan games, talk about the game, ect. If there is already one please tell me, otherwise ill have to make one myself.

    Yeah, I agree. This game looks pretty tight, but with nothing to fight, it gets boring pretty fast. So, any ideas for our first fight night/day?

    maybe we should have set times for matches like we organise 1 or 2 days before and we do it that way so that you wouldnt just check to see only to find out that a server just came down a sec ago
