What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game is packed with features already and we will continue to add more content and features until the game has been deemed complete. If you would like to join us in this journey and support the development team along the way, then early access is for you!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to release the full version in September 2017.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will have additional heroes and maps (although most of them will be added by end of early access).”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable and has most of the features already completed. Early Access will launch with 4 heroes, over 10 maps, a fully functional village, multiplayer, a level editor to make your own maps and distribute them through steamworks and much more.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will not be increased upon release. All Early Access versions will be automatically be updated to full versions.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Feedback is essential in completing this game as we would like to incorporate some player based ideas into the game. In addition to that we want the community to start getting involved with the editor and see some new maps that other players can enjoy.”

About This Game

Dark Quest 2 is a turn based RPG inspired by legendary board game Hero Quest. The game features a party based system where you control a group of heroes, an isometric hand-drawn art style, dice based mechanics and much more.

Each map is designed to take you through an adventure that will test your party's strength, courage and sanity as you go deeper and deeper into the castle in search for the chambers of the evil sorcerer.


• Single-Player Campaign: Play a story driven campaign that takes you through a series of adventure on your epic quest to defeat the evil sorcerer.

• Map Editor: Create new adventures and distribute them in steamworks to play with your friends and share them with the community.

• Multiplayer: Play together with your friends and go on epic adventures! Play skirmish maps, battle in the arena or complete the campaign cooperatively!

• Turn Based Mechanics: Every turn each of your heroes in your party can take one single action that will determine the outcome. Play wise and carefully or be forever captive in the eternal prison of the sorcerer.

• Skull of Fate: In the darkest dungeons of the castle, when left with no hope your last and only way out will be to roll the skull of fate and reveal your twisted fate.

• Assemble a Party: Control a group of 3 heroes each with their own personality and strengths. Use their skills in the appropriate situations and see victories. Use the unique strengths of each character and work together to defeat the minions of the evil sorcerer.
