What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The DarKnot Team is an experienced group focused on providing the best, and according to our roadmap, we think it's time to develop DarKnot jointly with community feedback in order to produce the best horror game to date.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“DarKnot will be in development for at least one full year during Early Access and to complete all planned features and content.”

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

“There is a ton of content in the early access edition of the game that will keep gamers interested for a long time. While the early access version is relatively stable and playable, users should still expect to encounter a few elusive bugs and other problems that we plan to track down and resolve before the official release.
The early access version will not have MPCs with personal story arcs, lack some supporting features, and have fewer quests.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of DarKnot will be playable, and players will be able to enjoy a fleshed-out gameplay experience, create characters, change clothes, and complete missions and puzzles. In terms of content, the early access version will contain the main theme of the game.”

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

“We want the price to represent the game. As the game grows and we add more content, features and locations, we plan to raise the price twice as much to correspond with the experience given to the player. As a thank you to the community, those who purchase the game in Early Access will receive all DLC for free.”

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

“We always carefully read through the players’ feedback and watch all streams involving our game so we can improve the gameplay and experience as much as we can. Players can reach out to us on our socials, the game’s official Discord server, and also leave suggestions and feedback on the official forums on Steam.”

About This Game



Welcome to the third person, non-linear psychological horror game experience by DarKnot Team, a new indie game studio, focusing on high level of details and immersion.



The DarKnot world is gloomy, and terrifying. You have been abandoned, left alone, and you’ll have to face death in this endless labyrinth. Challenge yourself, but try not to succumb to insanity in the process!



The game will set you into a labyrinth made from the streets of a huge city. They seem deceptively calm at first but the truth is much more dark than that, they will become dangerous and deadly in a short matter of time. You have no recollection of this world or even of yourself. Where are you? Who are you? Will you become a part of DarKnot, resist it, or find your own way? How far will you go to save yourself, and to save your teammates?



Explore the vast world of DarKnot to your heart's content, and experience true survival. How to deal with your opponents is your choice, plan your own strategies accordingly. You can return to DarKnot on another playthrough, and your fate will be different each time..



You can play the game the way you want, according to your ‘modus vivendi’, so to speak:
  • As a Warrior, if you like to pick a fight. Gather weapons, and set out to destroy your enemies.
  • As an Explorer, search for hidden objects, avoid fights, and meticulously explore the gloomy locations and lore of DarKnot.
  • As a Survivor, gather resources, craft items, and pick your fights wisely. Crafted weapons and explosives will help overcome enemies, but are costly.
  • Or as a Fugitive, scared and paranoid, avoid the monsters, and cover your tracks. Using tarot cards will help you stay unnoticed, but it will cost you your health and sanity.

Who will you become?

Features:

  • Replayability: We use immersive simulation, and design the lore in a way where you will be able to shape your story for a new experience every time you play the game.
  • Hardcore: Survival will not be easy. Each death will affect the plot of your story, and change the way you will continue your playthrough.



If you come across bugs in the DarKnot, please post them to Feedback and Bugs in the discussions. Your feedback is very important for us. By finding bugs and reporting them, you help us a lot.
