Today’s Spotlight is Darksburg, a co-op focused action-roguelite by Shiro Games (developers of the Evoland series and Northgard) that just left Early Access.
Up to four players can team up to fight their way through a procedurally generated fantasy city that has been overrun by undead hordes.
Customize your characters by finding loot and picking randomized perks to craft unique builds each run. Alternatively, players can dive into a versus mode, where the party of heroes will also need to content with rival players controlling undead mini-bosses. You can find a launch trailer below.
Darksburg is available on Windows PC via Steam for $19.99.
You can find a rundown of the game (via Steam) below:
Darksburg is a cooperative roguelite action game where you must team up to escape the hordes of Infected that have decided to settle down in the quaint little town of Darksburg.
Assume the role of one of the heroic Survivors each with their own unique skills and personalities, power them up with the numerous perks and skills you will come across throughout your runs and defeat the nefarious revenants and legion of undead that have come to plague this formerly peaceful city.
- Master the arts of cooperative gameplay to survive the relentless hordes of Infected that are terrorising the town of Darksburg.
- Choose among 3 random perks each time you level up and combine them to create the perfect build.
- A procedurally generated adventure. The entire city of Darksburg and the loot it contains changes with every run, so no two games are alike.
- Explore a number of unique zombie infested locales spanning across the entire town with a diverse range of objectives, enemies and items to encounter with each run.
