About the Game

Din's Curse is a single player and co-op multiplayer action RPG with 141 class combinations, infinite number of dynamically generated towns, real consequences, and a dynamic, evolving world.

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 is an amazing game. If you loved Diablo or Fate, this is like an upgraded version of those. Not only can you dungeon delve and kill tons of monsters, but the townspeople need your help as well. People can starve to death, fight each other, plot against the town, ect. No one is safe, not even quest givers or vendors. Down in the dungeon, monsters can swarm you from all sides, especially if there is dimensional gateways that constantly spawn monsters. If you are not careful, quests can pile up, monsters start uprisings and try to invade the town, various machines can cause harmful or strange effects, like causing tornados in the town. Loot is completey random, and the various classes are fun to play, especially hybrids. Din's Curse and it's slightly different game, Depths of Peril are must buys.

To me, this is what an ARPG should be. If you like messing around with different character builds, killing stuff, collecting gear with little story or exploration to slow you down, give this a go.
PLEASE don't look too much at the screenshots or videos, just download the demo and give it a try. It's only 100MB or so, and it plays way better than it looks.
If you like the ARPG genre, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

So... you like FRPG? Do you remember the original gold-box TSR games on C-64? Did you enjoy playing lots of FRUA back in the day? This game is nothing like those, but you might get the idea that it is because of the primitive graphics. While it obviously derives inspiration from those golden games of yore, it comes nowhere close to the brilliance of those earlier gems. I've enjoyed this game immensely, however, but only as a diversion as it lacks any real depth. If you need a random world to delve, hack, sorcel, loot, and save all at once, Din can offer pleasure on the order of many far simpler games. However, it does get old after a while since you're essentially doing the same things over and over again. If you find distraction, amusement and the simple satisfaction that comes from completion are enough for you to enjoy a cheap thrill at times, give it a try. If you want something deeper, truly epic, and more beautiful graphically, skip it. I enjoy it. You may not.

You know what diablo was missing? Werewolves. this is a dungeon crawler game where you can be a werewolf/druid, you can also create hybrid classes and there is a unique quest system where in real time you are defending a town built on top of the dungeons you crawl through.

This is a fun little RPG. It's hugely replayable, as every town is different and you have to do different things to save each town (most of these are "Kill X monster", "Destroy X Machine", or "Collect X Items", but they're just slightly different enough to stay interesting). There are some flaws in the game, the graphics are extremely dated and can be glitchy, and townspeople behave like idiots (starving to death when 1 copper piece in debt, charging towards high level invading monsters with poor weaponry and armor, standing motionless while a tornado is heading straight for them, and so on. Worse is that you suffer a reputation penalty even when they die in stupid ways). The monster AI seems pretty rudimentary as well, once they're aggro-ed, they run in a straight line after you and attack in predictable ways. However, even with the flaws, it's still a solidly fun game and you can get engrossed in it pretty easily
