Draft of Darkness was released in early access last month and since its launch over 2000 players brave the darkness. The survival horror focussed gameplay has also been well received by deck-building fans with Draft of Darkness currently sitting at 97% positive Steam reviews.
Following the successful launch, solo developer Crawly Games has announced what content is coming to the game in 2021. The thematic road map showcases some sizable content drops, including a Halloween event with a new companion and a whole new map area that will progress the story. Alongside the content updates, there is also an equipment rework planned and full controller support coming soon.
Draft of Darkness is set in a post-apocalyptic city plagued by…darkness! Venturing through the procedurally generated and interconnected maps, you’ll need to manage your party and resource while surviving against ghastly infected creatures.
Your decisions outside of combat are just as important as your decisions in combat, especially if you wish to survive this darkness-infested city. Statuses stay with you throughout your run, only being removed by well-managed navigation. You’ll have the chance to upgrade your cards and equipment through in-world interactions and trading opportunities. Be warned, every action in Draft of Darkness has a reaction!
A card is only as good as its weapon – Attack cards are linked to a weapon, managing your weapons resources as well as your deck is vital to make sure your build is ready to defeat what lurks in the shadows.
Is the darkness better as a group? – Find friends and foes lurking deep within the darkness. Manage the status of your party, avoid radiation and infection at all costs!
Every death brings rewards – At the end of every run, you will receive credits that can be used to open booster packs to unlock new starting cards. Every death is a chance to find new strategies!
Be careful what you ask for – Draft of Darkness has a unique “meta-story progression” system, every decision can alter the outcome of the story and allow for new ways to progress. Different choices are available in each run but be careful, some will have serious consequences.
