New Patch is Now Live! (v454)

2014年6月22日

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…

Our Darker Purpose has so much potential - the art style is gothic and frequently impressive, the lore of the Edgewood Orphanage setting is rich, and it has a few unique mechanics in terms of incremental buffs tied in with a leveling system. And it squanders it all.

Our Darker Purpose aspires to be the next Binding of Isaac - it's a top down, twin-stick, rogue-lite with an exhausting array of usable and passive items. But it's worse in every way, and three times more expensive to boot. I couldn't even fathom pouring more than 10 hours into this game, let alone the 100 hours Isaac can satisfy. What it comes down to is gameplay. Signs of sloppy design are on display almost by the minute. The hitboxes of enemies are incomprehensible and your pathetic, pixel-size shots pass through even the largest of bosses for no discernible reason. Movement is imprecise and, without rolling everywhere, is slow and clunky. Everything takes far too much damage before it dies and deals far too much damage, each creature doubling in strength, HP and defense after every level, as opposed to the strict rules governing monster types in Isaac. Difficulty is never an issue if it's fair, but the poor design choices present the challenge as cruelly unfair. A player's skill will never be able to respond to impossible to dodge hazards that appear the instant a player enters a room, or the awkward placement of innumerable indecipherable objects that block player projectiles and obstruct any sense of movement.

In the end, the greatest crime Our Darker Purpose commits is an obvious empty ploy to prolong the length of its campaign. Rather than implement as large an array of items as Isaac or Risk of Rain, encouraging a sense of discovery and experimentation, a lazily implemented upgrade system built around earning 'credits' in a poorly designed menu sets positive bonuses for the next run. A next run that you won't want to make.

This game is a hidden little gem and I really wish people paid more attention to it. There's pretty much no flaws to it, other then a few meager little nitpicks.

Now first off, I want you to imagine Tim Burton made the Binding of Isaac. Now remove anything remotely similar to Johnny Depp. That's what our Darker Purpose is. The game plays almost identically to BOI, albeit a bit more slow-paced. You collect items and level up every once and a while.

This game is a rogue-like, it has randomly generated floors, each with randomly generated rooms. Many of these floors will have a certain level-feeling (i.e. To Big, Leaderless, Power Struggle, Sensetive, etc.) that can make or break your playthrough. It's very rare that a death in this game will be the game's fault, although it won't be uncommon that your playthrough may get harder thanks to the luck of the draw present in all rogue-likes.

In short, Our Darker Purpose is a fine piece of work, and by-and-far one of my more favorite games. It has a nice sense of humour, a gorgousley grim art-style, plays near perfectly, and is hard to boot.

If you like Binding of Isaac's gameplay, FTL's progression, and Don't Starve's art style, you'll love Our Darker Purpose. It's lacking a bit in variety (but plenty hard to keep you from blowing through it) but they are consistently updating and hopefully if the game is successful they will add more content.

Every now and a again a game comes along that is so unique that it redefines the genre. This is not one of those games, but it is pretty fun and worth a try if you liked The Binding of Isaac. If you haven't played The Binding of Isaac, play that instead.

Great game, very enjoyable, a lot of depth and some interesting lore. Add to that a fantastic sound track and appealing visuals and there's really not much to ask for.

If you enjoyed The Binding of Isaac, you'll enjoy this as well. And there's less poop, so that's always a plus.
