About the Game

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.

Damned is one of those games where you play with your friends to be scared with them or to scare them.

Damned has built on the horror genre in it's own unique way; The monster (Currently "Lurker" and "Phantom") are player controlled, while four other players search around a myriad of different "levels", such as "Pines Grill Restaraunt", "Black Lake Asylum" and "Bodom Hotel" looking for keys to unlock certain doors to escape the horrors within..Either that or they'll be shreadded carcasses in the next few minutes.

Currently in 0.71b Alpha, the game is VERY buggy, unoptimised and uncompleted. But its a gem. If you are willling to contribute to the development of this game, then consider giving it a go.
For an Idea of how the game plays, look towards these two videos showcasing two maps, "Factory" and "Black Lake Asylum" from the survivor's viewpoint, alongside Cpt_Aylott!

Overall, I'll give Damned a 8/10 for its ability to make me ♥♥♥♥ myself countless times, even after clocking 53 hours on the game.

I want to like this game, I really do. It's a great concept and great gameplay. The only problem my friends and I can hardly play it due to it being absolutely broken (unstable). Start up Damned, find out it's still broken, reverify files, start up damned, rinse and repeat. It's a freaking chore to play one match and that's if everyone else doesn't end up crashing. The game has been out (not offically released) 9 months now and the devs have recently released their third monster and another map. I really wish they would just focus purely on stablizing this game first then creating new monsters and maps. I know it's still in Beta but there has been PLENTY of games that would have been atleast some what stable by now. Bottom line don't get this game until you hear it's been stablized, which if the dev's keep going the way they have been, will be a very long while.

I never thought a horror game like this could be scary, but it's terrifying in the most hilarious of ways. A must-have for a group of friends.
