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

    No it is one of those modified quake engines. It is called 'Darkplaces' or something similar I think.

    I have installed this game. I dont see games on the master server, and we have only 1 simple weapon.
    I guest to search games I can contact the irc, or something, but also a cheat mode to test all weapons can be interesting. give all and impulse 9 dont work. Any help?

    thanks :), however you cannot hold block up perpetually without shield, that there is a quick block with melee weapons.
