ADD TO YOUR WISHLIST!

DARQ is coming to Steam mid 2019 - add it to your wishlist if you want to be notified when it's out.

ABOUT THIS GAME

DARQ tells the story of Lloyd, a boy who becomes aware of the fact that he is dreaming. To Lloyd's misfortune, the dream quickly turns into a nightmare and all attempts to wake up end in failure. While exploring the darkest corners of his subconscious, Lloyd learns how to survive the nightmare by bending the laws of physics and manipulating the fluid fabric of the dream world.

Apart from gravity-defying puzzles, Lloyd will have to use stealth when nearby enemies. He has no chance of winning in an open confrontation, since the creatures he will encounter are much more powerful and faster than him. Instead, he has to rely on careful planning to avoid getting detected.

FEATURES

PREVIEW: Darq

From: unfoldgames


DARQ tells the story of Lloyd, a boy who becomes aware of the fact that he is dreaming. To Lloyd's misfortune, the dream quickly turns into a nightmare and all attempts to wake up end in failure. While exploring the darkest corners of his subconscious, Lloyd learns how to survive the nightmare by bending the laws of physics and manipulating the fluid fabric of the dream world.


Shadows of Doubt is a stealth detective game set in a fully-simulated sci-fi city. There's been a murder and it's up to you to solve it by any means necessary, with the condition that you keep a low profile. A unique mix of procedural generation and hand-crafted design enables every room of every building to be explored. Citizens go about their lives independent of the player as you watch from the Shadows, in search of crucial information.


Edgar, an outcast in his 40s lives peacefully in the woods with his clever chicken and beloved squashes. Unfortunately, an unforeseen disaster will force our dear hairy man to leave his shack and join the local city of light... Boulzac. Coming to save his veggies, he’ll stumble upon the oldest and most terrifying secret the city has ever sheltered… Edgar is a comic narrative game set in a weird and rich universe. The action takes place in a small village, reminiscent of the french countryside with its share of cliché and fascinating characters. It is developed by La Poule Noire, a cooperative that aims, through its productions, to make fun of social trends. In Edgar, conspiracy theory is at the heart of the plot.


A turn-based RPG with switchable leaders, who in battle use their title’s influence (a collection of stat boosts, resistances, and a passive effect) over allies or foes, featuring 2D platforming gameplay while exploring various missions. Both sides of battle have a leader, victory goes to the party who defeated their opponent’s leader. Both sides can switch the status of leader from one character to another during battle on to activate their title’s influence over the battlefield.

Learning new skills takes time (9000 hours as of now), but it gets easier if you love the process.

Just discovered your game. Great work as a solo dev, looks polished and intriguing - I have no doubt you will do well. If you need a publisher to help with marketing around the launch I know a few who are interested in this kind of game I could make an introduction too.

Hi, thank you! I appreciate your willingness to help! Looks like we're all set for now, but I'll know whom to ask for help in the future :) To clarify, this game is not entirely a solo project. Although I'm doing 95% of all the visuals, some animations & models are commissioned. And all sound design is being done by Bjorn Jacobsen (who previously worked on Cyberpunk 2077).
