"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!

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…

Если вы являетесь поклонником серии The Binding of Isaac, то крайне рекомендую обратить внимание на данное творение. Все геймплейные фишки Исаака здесь так же имеют место (Предметы, этажи и боссы), но механика управления персонажем и взаимодействия с врагами намного более интересная и сложная.

Плюсы:
+ Новый интересный сеттинг
+ Хардкорная механика - на 25% хардкорнее Исаака и на 100% сложнее
+ Много сложных боссов и монстров
+ Крайне интерессные предметы и их сочетания
+ УКРЫТИЯ И ПЕРЕКАТЫ
+ Занятная система прокачки персонажа за "внутриигровую валюту"

Минусы:
- Новый интересный сеттинг выполнен не слишком професионально
- Выглядит игра... кхм... Неоднозначно
- Предметов не так уж и много.

Отличная игрушка, без уродства Айзека (с которым её сравнивают постоянно).

В системных требованиях написано, что минимум Vista нужна, но это брехня. Под XP отлично работает.
Однозначно рекомендую! Ещё бы русификатор и вообще зашибись было бы.

На пиратке отыграно очень много часов. Но пиратка не позволяет пройти дальше 4-го этажа.
В общем, взял лицензию, благо распродажа. И вообще, игра достаточно хорошая, чтобы было не стрёмно за неё заплатить.)

В общем, если сомневаетесь - скачайте пиратку и погоняйте. А потом берите лицензию. Она того стоит!

People will compare this to The Binding of Isaac, and they aren't wrong in doing so. They are both very similar, and yet play very differently.
The similarities follow:
  • Twin stick top-down-ish shooter.
  • Procedurally generated levels.
  • Items to pick up which improve your character.
  • Bosses at the end of levels.
That is where most of the similarities stop however, and the games become very different.

The Binding of IsaacOur Darker Purpose
  • Completely new run every time.
  • Fast-paced and "bullet-hell"-ish.
  • Massively powerful pickups allowing godly powerful characters.
  • Minimal mechanics to keep track of for the average player.
  • Simple heart-based health system.
  • Cartoony semi-cute art style.
  • Traps are a minute threat, especially late game.
  • Certain things can persist between runs allowing for a slightly better character each time.
  • Relatively slower paced but hugely more stategic. There is no run-n-gun strategy.
  • Pickups allow for slightly to moderately better characters. Additionally, there is a leveling system that offers you a choice of two "upgrades" neither usually being too powerful.
  • Several mechanics to keep track of. Enemies are tricky to deal with even after practice. More mechanics with the character as well, including a rolling "dodge".
  • Point-based health system, with varying damage from different sources.
  • Darker Tim Burton-esque art style, making the game feel dark, empty, and abandoned.
  • Traps are an ever-present threat, and just as deadly as the enemies.
In conclusion, The Binding of Isaac and Our Darker Purpose are both great rougue-like twinsticks, however, they are pitched very differently. The Binding of Isaac is made to make you feel powerful, yet fragile, while Our Darker Purpose makes you feel weak and alone, trying to survive, while also being relatively sturdy.

In normal games, you get frustrated by dying and re-playing it from the begining. In this game, however, you will die and fail time and time again, and you still eagerly try to beat it again, since you are able to keep a little something from each attempt, witch you can use to have edge in the next attempts to come.
You learn by trying and dying.
Setting is also nice, you will never see the same levels no matter how many times you re-try, boss batttles are fun, not to mention decent amount of weird items with even weirder descriptions, that will give you a fair insight into game lore.

This game is 300mb of awesomeness.

Checked this game out since it is currently 75% off. I'd say that it may be worth the 3.74 on sale, but not the full 14.99.

Love the art style; very burtonesque. Soundtrack is also nice.
