Din, champion of the gods, has cursed you into a second life of service because you selfishly squandered your first one while causing misfortune to those around you. To redeem yourself, you must impress Din by building a reputation for helping others. Travel the spacious western plains of Aleria and save desperate towns from the brink of annihilation. Until you're redeemed, you're doomed to wander the earth alone for all eternity.

In Din's Curse, you will explore an extensive underground, slaying dangerous monsters, solving dynamic quests, dodging deadly traps, and in your spare time, plundering loot. Quell uprisings, flush out traitors, kill assassins, cure plagues, purge curses, end wars, and complete other dangerous quests or the danger WILL escalate. Not all is as it seems though, traitors will gladly stab you in the back, renegades can revolt against the town, spies can set up ambushes, and items might even curse or possess your friends.

Choose one of 141 class combinations and journey to an infinite number of dynamically generated towns with vastly different problems. Every game is a surprise! Your actions have real consequences in this dynamic, evolving world. Your choices actually matter!

Open the door to Din's Curse. Surprising adventures await!

This game looks interesting, but what it really need is an aesthetic (hopefully correct spelling).

hmm, so what do you need to make this game click?

1. better looking graphics
2. better lighting effects
3. co-op campaign to make it worth the money(which is quite a lot for an indie title)

The whole game is CO-OP. The graphics are decent. The lighting effects i agree on. Its certainly a slightly less polished Torchlight with MP.

Game looks good but the 20$ price tag keeps me away as I am not sure if I would like this. Never played Diablo also. I am not saying 20$ is a lot, I fine it quite cheap.

To everyone that is playing the game and can write a review I recommend going to the Metacritic page of Din's Curse, a lot of people usually go there when deciding whether to buy a game or not, and unfortunatelly it doesn't have any user score since no one gave one yet.

PS: Link: Metacritic.com

That is true, and I can't argue with that. I just thought it might have been some pranksters who gave it a 1 or something, and that would be unjustified.

I know that heinosity holds some truth to some of the skills, (icemage and frost nova in particular). But each class has its strengths and weaknesses. And by now we all know that mage characters in rpgs usually trash almost everything. But....there are quite a few exceptions to this. You just have to find them. I tend to avoid mage characters altogether no matter what (largely favoring the rogue).

Anyway, I think Din's Curse deserves a somewhat high mark for it's uniqueness and replayability. The game world itself is fun to watch unfold and see what happens. If your one of those people that just plays a game because of it's looks-then your probably better off not playing Din's. But even then it's still worth a try to try out. And if anyone needs any info on what the game is like, feel free to ask.

Gave it a 7. Why? This game has serious potential, I really want to love it, the new ideas it brings to the table are absolutely brilliant, but the classes are seriously imbalanced. I would say around 60% of the skills are totally worthless, and some are so ridiculously overpowered they have been called "Win Game Buttons." The game also has quite a few bugs and annoyances that have all been pointed out on the forums, but they still remain. Look, I don't expect a perfect "diablo killer" from an indie developer, but this game actually could have been if more thought had been put into the classes. There is an expansion coming now, and I want to be excited, but I won't be until some of the bugs are fixed and skills rebalanced.
