Damned: A Randomized Online Horror Game

- What is Damned?

Damned is a randomized online horror game for up to 5 players (4 survivors and 1 monster).
You’ll be able to play as one of four people trapped in different haunted places (hotels, hospitals, etc).
As a survivor your main objective will be finding your way out, as well as helping your friends get out too. You’ll often find yourself on the edge, hearing and seeing ghostly things, trying to find keys and items to help in your escape. And sometimes you’ll find yourself running desperately from a monster, who’s there only to find and kill you and your friends.
You’ll also be able to play as the monster. The game will feature different monsters, each one unique in its gameplay and hunting style.

- What kind of horror game is Damned?

Damned explores the sense of being defenseless against a powerful supernatural force. The survivors can’t directly affect the monster in any way. When it’s there to get you, your only chance is to run and hide.
This perception of being defenseless is very strong, primal and terrifying, it builds up anxiety and makes you really scared, fearing any unexplained noise or movement.
This is how Damned creates horror in a multiplayer game session, and we believe it to be super effective! (tested and approved!)

- Why is Damned a randomized game?

Every stage in Damned is randomized:
  • Almost all the objects in a stage may or may not appear;
  • The item system is fully random too, randomizing which item will appear in the game, and where it'll be;
  • The way to win a match as a survivor is also randomized;
  • Even the stage may trigger random events to scare the survivors inside.

- Why is Damned a competitive and cooperative game?

Because in a full game, with 4 survivors and 1 monster, there’ll be a survivor “team” cooperating to try and escape together, and at the same time they’ll be competing against a monster, trying to flee from him and deny each one of its attempt to hunt and kill a survivor.

- How to play as a survivor?

As a survivor you’ll be cooperating with your friends (up to 4 survivors in a single game session):
You and your friends will be searching the level for keys and items to help in your escape;
Each survivor will have a flashlight that can be turned on and off, helping you see your surroundings, but at the same time letting the monster know where you are;
The survivors will be able to manipulate objects throughout the hotel, like drawers, doors, safes, cabinets, wardrobes;
Challenge yourself to find the exit and get out alive.

- How to play as the monster?

As the monster, your game will be all about competing alone against the survivors team.
The game will feature different monsters, each one unique in its play style. It's up to you to play a few rounds with each monster and decide which one works best for you.
How are you going to hunt and kill the survivors?

- Why is Damned worth buying?

Because it’s fun!
It’s really scary, you’ll find yourself on the edge a lot of times, trying to evade the monster or trying to pay closer attention because you don’t know if the sound you just heard is some random noise or if it is the monster haunting you.
It’s a real horror game, it explores deeply the feeling of being completely defenseless against a powerful force that can finish you easily. Your only choice is to run and hide!
And also because it’s really fun to play as the monster as well. You’ll keep haunting and building up anxiety in people, making them terribly scared of you. We really put you in the skin of a terrifying monster.

I should start by saying that the game did provide a few sessions of fun. That being said, there are a number of problems with the game:

1. The premise is very narrow and wears thin quickly. At first it is scary and you die all the time. Then you realise that you cannot possibly complete this game (see point 2) without studying the particulars of the monster you are facing. The minute you do that, the scary aspect pretty much disappears, or in the very least much of it is lost.

2. The game is extremely hard for the survivors. The only way to beat it is to treat it like any other computer game and learn specific strategies... but in a game so dependent on atmosphere and fright, this ruins things.

3. Once you have your strategy in place, studied the monster to the point where there is nothing scary about it, and are ready to play, you will soon find the game becoming very repetitive and tedious. You will essentially wander around in the dark trying to find that one damn key that no one could find to the door that is still locked. After 20 minutes of going around in the same circle doing nothing but trying to imagine where on earth you forgot to look and you will be ready to pull your hair clean off your head.

4. The door opening and closing mechanism is moronic. You will not believe how moronic it is if you did not try it.

All in all, not a game I would recommend. Interesting idea, but not very well executed and also lacking in content to make it interesting in the long run.

Bought the 4-pack for me and 3 of my friends, let's just say that we've all had trouble sleeping lately. The game is very balanced and having the keys and items randomed is pretty challenging. The only downside is the size of the tools you need to find (batteries and keys) that are easily missed if you don't look VERY carefully, as well as having no on-screen indicators of how much battery you've got left etc. But i think it was inteneded to make it more "realistic" and the amount of screams we've all shared proves that. Great game if you're looking for something similar to amnesia co-op where one of you gets to be the monster ;)

9/10 could use minor improvements in the future.

Invite your friends and play this awesome horror game! You’ll be playing as human or monster, total of 5 players for each session (4 Survivors and 1 monster).

Four people is trapped with a monster, the survivors main objective is to find the way-out.
Do you have what it takes to get all the survivors out while seeing ghostly things, hearing noises or desperately running from a monster, who’s only desire is to hunt down and kill you and your friends?

The monster will be able to assume ethereal form, which to hunt the survivors, set up traps that trigger noises and events. Also assume physical form, which allows the monster to kill you, also toggle a rage mode which almost always ends with a killing spree.

Sum up with: One of the most enjoyable horror multiplayer games I have ever played, surprisingly addicting if you’re in for a spooky treat with your friends.
Damned is a masterpiece and worth a try and I can assure you will be screaming!

This game has a really nice concept. Everyone wants to scare the ♥♥♥♥ out of their friends meaning it has great potential. However, due to it being early access, it is probably the most delicate game i have ever played and is buggy as ♥♥♥♥. Although this is understandable for an early access game, it is rarely updated and progress is not nearly quick enough. Because of this, i dont think it will ever be realeased and is gonna die a slow death...

I wouldn't attempt to play this ♥♥♥♥ if I got paid for it. Littered with bugs. I write "attempt to play" because a good 30 minutes into this mess the game still isn't playable. First I maximized the window, the cursor didn't notice this appearently and is constrained by the borders of the small window. I restart the game, go straight to options and set it to fullscreen mode instead. Why allow maximizing the window in windowed mode if it prevents the cursor from working?

As for the cursor itself, it is plagued by input lag which i begrudgingly accept for now. Even though it is annoying as all hell and makes clicking a menu button a chore.

Then comes the registering. You have to register an account to play the game. Why you even have to do this when the game is on steam is beyond me, but alright. I do that. Or at least I try to. The game bugs out when I open the steam overlay, as the steam overlay refuses to close again. Another restart.

Now that the game is finally fullscreen, I have an account registered and I have decided to just ignore the mouse lag, I join a server that my friend set up. Surprisingly, this part actually works. What doesn't work, however, is actually playing it, as it is suffering from the exact same lag as in the menu when you are in a game. This means the game has roughly 1.5 fps. Unplayable.

After lots of googling and looking at the steam forum for Damned I learn three things:

1. Troubleshooting a game called "damned" using google is nearly impossible, for obvious reasons.
2. Everyone has loads of problems on the steam forums as well, some can't even start the game.
3. There might be an issue with windows aero.

So I do some more googling in an attempt to turn off aero, finally manage to not just switch themes to classic but actually disable aero alltogether, but to no avail. Still has massive lag.

This is where my patience ends.

In summary: Do not buy this game if you expect it to work. I'm sure it does for some, but for lots of people judging from the forum and my own experience, it does not.

Do buy this game if you want to see why early access blows(is this even early access? It better be. Some claim it is. I couldn't find anything about it on the store page).
At least the game is true to its name.

The game is virtually unchanged from the last time I played exactly a year ago. There's a lot of good ideas and cool concepts that haven't been expanded upon in any way or balanced at all for a viable, playable game. I would have expected some progress by now, but there's really nothing (outside of additional maps, which feature the same problems of size, length, and tedium as the rest).

Don't buy this game, and certainly not at the current asking price.

Overall this game is easily fun and scary. the music makes it rather scary as some monsters have cues that randomnly play if they get nearby. it's helpful to avoid a small run but it also makes you panic and forget about what you were doing in the first place. the only major drawback in my opinion is the new insanity system they added. the game is pretty difficult as it is but the way insanity messes with you can seriously hamper or completely stop progress of the 4 humans and it seems to way to beneficial to the monster

Even at the discount price of 70 nok that would equal something like 8 euros this is not worth it. It is infact so far from worth it you can get. Every time you get close to actually getting to play the game some problem will come along and ensure that you don't. However that is actually a blessing in disguise cause that horrible fps you experience in the menu transfers along into the game and presents you with a unplayable pile of poo that you best stay away from. Theres no early access tag anywhere, but this is clearly an alpha at best. Just don't buy it.

This game looks awesome and I really like the Idea, but it just get's boring fast and at times.. feels repetitive.

It's very buggy, and you WILL crash alot of times.
sometimes you won't be able to change character, servers occasionaly don't load and the overall framerate isn't exactly 'smooth'.

I do not think this is worth the $20 or $10 (sale on currently) as it just doesn't feel finished, and feels as if it still hasn't left early access... unfortunately, it has.


thanks for taking the time

Ok, I've tried to play this game. I can't login, and when I try to switch resolution it just goes black and I have to reboot.
I got to play this once and it's awesome, but it's so ♥♥♥♥ing awful right now.
