New Patch is Now Live! (v454)

22 Juni 2014

Latest patch is now live! We won't list all them all out here so if you didn't try the test branch you can discover them for yourself...

-- 9 new items
-- 4 new floor characteristics

We've made a few bug fixes on the new items/characteristics based on feedback on the test branch -- thank you!

-Haunted floors should increase explosion speed over time until everything in the room explodes. Killing everything will make the poltergeist move on though. Fewer coins should drop.

-Edgewood Hall Pass will now only work for uncleared rooms.

-Stolen Seconds should properly disappear after use (not 999 seconds anymore, but permanently!)

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…

Positiv:
- düstere Atmosphäre (Gothic, Horror, School)
- sehr gute Musik!
- Level-Up System (Wähle 1 von 2 Verbesserungen)
- Bockschwer
- Jeder Tod bringt einen ein (winziges) Stück weiter
- Optionale Aufgaben (wie man Bosse besiegen soll) um Dinge freizuschalten
- Roguelike!!

Negativ:
- Level-Up dauert zu lange
- Anfangs mühselig Rewards (rote Kristalle = Währung) zu sammeln

Fazit:
Düsteres schwereres Binding of Isaac mit schönem Level-Up System.
Definitiv Kaufempfehlung!

So, after some patches went over the finished game, I finally wanna give out my review to everyone considering to buy the game out there.

First of all, I really don't know what someone could not like about the game, besides the difficulty.
Yep, it's pretty damn hard, I'm far from beating it even once. But it's still fair and also, every time you die, that run wasn't a complete waste, since you get crystals to upgrade stuff for future runs.

Generally, the game has an awesome, Tim Burton-like art style, combined with very atmospheric music.
The mechanics work a lot like The Binding Of Isaac, but faster, harder and with bigger rooms.
Especially the boss monsters are freaking creative and cool to fight. Some are harder than others, but with the right upgrades and playstyle, you should be able to defeat every single one of them.

So yeah, if you aren't a complete newbie in the Indie Game-szene, I'm definitely giving a big "YES" for this game, it's really worth every penny!
