If you ever played paper RPG Death Maze, Citadel of Blood or Labirynt Śmierci then you already know this game. DG is a tribute to this RPG (three names but game the same). In Dark Gates you lead your team of 6 heroes into dungeon where they will fight their way through in order to destroy Dark Gates and evil mage who is the master of the dungeon. Main feature of the game is dungeon itself. This is no predefined layout and every time you play, map is always different. Dungeon creates itself as you play. In your quest you will find monsters, magical items, trap, puzzles and treasures. Glory awaits one who destroys Dark Gates and evil mage. Game is in alpha stage, lot's of stuff missing or not working as intended.

Weapon animations, menu revamp, new weapon and more

Posted by on

As version 1.0 is finally on the horizon, DFour Games would like to show of our newest milestone - v.0.8. There is few changes so let's get to it:

Weapon Animations
This version introduces animations for each weapon available and also monsters attacks. Best thing is to see it for yourself but now every bite,swing, throw or flying arrow is now visible. Talking about weapons. Crossbow makes a debut as well.

New hero : Lorac
Lorac is our newest hero and she brings already mentioned crossbow to the arsenal. Crossbow is currently an exclusive weapon to Lorac but next release may bring some weapon swaps to other heroes.

Other ChangesMain Menu 0.8
From now on monster can only attack from second line if they have a projectile or can cast a spell. This brings 'reality of a fight' to be more inline and also changes team tactics. Main menu had a little revamp and you can now control music and sound separately in options menu. If you are into language packs, Polish and French languages are now put in their own files along with German. Bug introduced in version 0.7 where having Theregond ,Curvenol or Zareth in the team will break the game when attacked is now fixed. Save games from ver. 0.7 can be used unless you got those three heroes in your parties. Last think, If you not voted yet for DarkGates to be releases on Steam, now you have a single button, which will take you straight to Greenlight page :)
