"Similar to Binding of Issac but with a few differences, and in a beautifully drawn Gothic style. Just good ole dungeon exploring and monster fighting."

Our Darker Purpose: Winter Festival Update

Dearest Friends,

The Administrators are pleased to announce the Edgewood Winter Festival update! It is that time of the season in which Old Man Winter laughs through his magnificent beard and invites us to look upon the wondrous landscape he has created. Moreover the dormitories are becoming overcrowded again. We recommend students play on the terrace this evening..

Exciting changes in Edgewood:
-New, powerful items are available if you can survive past the first floor
-Some of the weaker items and higher tier classes have also been buffed
-Additional vendor item slot available by default
-Confusion debuff less punishing
-Players can no longer end Krass-Skull's 4-hour invulnerable phase by changing the date in Windows Control Panel

Steam Achievements: Your in-game achievements should now sync with Steam achievements retroactively. Just head to the lore/upgrade tabs and the achievements should sync automatically.

Controller Support: ODP now features native controller support for XBox360 compatible controllers. Key settings are below, but feel free to disable this setting in the options menu if you are already using 3rd party software.

Steam Cloud Saves: Game saves should now automatically upload to the Steam cloud! No more orphaned game states. In theory.

Haunting Melodies: The Our Darker Purpose soundtrack by the extraordinary Nate Fenwick Smith is now available on Steam!

See you in Edgewood!

Hallow Day's Update (v459)

Dear friends, we are happy to announce the Edgewood Hallow Day update. Allegations of student unrest, vengeful ink creatures, and the continued reign of Krass-Skull (move speed +40% in this update) are no reason to cease our proud institution's annual festivities. We are confident that the avian skeleton problem last year was simply a statistical aberration.

We have a hallow handful of fun new items for you in this update -- hope you enjoy them. Let us know what you think!

Journey to the dark heart of the Edgewood Home for Lost Children in this fiendishly difficult action RPG!

When her teacher stepped out of the classroom a month ago, Cordy never imagined he would be gone for good. Now her fellow students have turned on each other as the school descends into chaos. Cordy must battle feral classmates and dangerous creatures as she ascends to the cruel Administrators’ offices atop the Edgewood Home for Lost Children.

Our Darker Purpose is a top-down, rogue-like action RPG that combines the ingenuity of genre-defining classics with the expansiveness and accessibility of modern day action adventure games. The gameplay is steeped in a variety of influences ranging from A Link to the Past to The Binding of Isaac to Diablo. We love games with great mechanics and awesome, bizarre storylines, and that’s what we’re creating with Our Darker Purpose.

Each playthrough features a unique set of procedurally generated levels. Death is permanent, but your accomplishments earn you resources to buy lesson and upgrades in the afterlife... and your education lasts forever. Every game teaches you more about the Edgewood Home for Lost Children, the disappearance of the adults, and the darker purpose of the Administrators.

Key Features


Fast-Paced, Combat-Oriented Gameplay: Face unique boss encounters and challenging enemy mechanics! The Edgewood Home is a merciless environment. Dodge between fireballs and flying desks while your former classmates try to pummel you into the walls, and that’s just the lower levels…

Character Variety and Customization: Assemble selections of randomized perks and upgrades to reflect your play-style – tanky bruiser, glass cannon, fleet-footed assassin, or anything else. Assemble your skills into devastating combinations… or pick style perks with no benefit at all, at your peril.

Oh Yeah, and It Takes Place in a Sinister Orphanage: Prepare for a an unflinching look at what happens when an already terrifying boarding school/orphanage goes all Lord of the Flies, and try not to get eaten by any of the possessed furniture. Only the psychologically strongest gamers will be able to withstand the insightful taunts of the Administrators themselves…

Gameplay


Allocate precious skills

Uncovering Edgewood’s dark secrets will yield valuable experience for Cordy. Each time she levels up, you’ll be able to select from one of two new abilities that she can acquire, depending on your play style and the situation at hand. You will never be as strong as you need to be, so prepare for some nail-biting choices…

Choose your own ghastly fate

The house is different every game, and every level is uniquely generated. But fear not, there’s more than one way to ascend through a dystopic Victorian manor! Pick your route – would you rather battle a feral horde than risk an encounter with the dangerous Capulets? The choice is yours! Of course, each floor offers unique credit tokens to buy new upgrades, so choose wisely…

Acquire eternal powers

Adorable, creepy, stylized Edgewood Home students don’t give up when they fail --- they go to class. Each time you lead Cordy to a fiery (or chalky, or spikey, or venomy, or monstery) demise, you get some time to strategize with your kindly scarecrow guidance counselor. He is happy to offer his one-of-a-kind insight in many academic disciplines…
