If you ever played paper RPG Death Maze, Citadel of Blood or Labirynt Śmierci then you already know this game. DG is a tribute to this RPG (three names but game the same). In Dark Gates you lead your team of 6 heroes into dungeon where they will fight their way through in order to destroy Dark Gates and evil mage who is the master of the dungeon. Main feature of the game is dungeon itself. This is no predefined layout and every time you play, map is always different. Dungeon creates itself as you play. In your quest you will find monsters, magical items, trap, puzzles and treasures. Glory awaits one who destroys Dark Gates and evil mage.

With every purchase you will get a Dark Gates comic book with story about why some heroes ventured into the Labyrinth. This is a FREE BONUS for supporters.

As Dark Gates is still missing a proper demo, this is probably the best next thing.

Just found a bug. If your team has Theregond ,Curvenol or Zareth - game will break if you allow monster to attack. Bug has been fixed and other heroes are not affected. It will be rolled out with new release. Apologies for inconvenience.

More feedback - You have to press enter on the main menu, then it suddenly switched to space to select character, then during the game you press enter again? Keep to the same main key.
