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. Game is in alpha stage, lot's of stuff missing or not working as intended.

Non QWERTY keyboard support, Windows version crash fix and more

Posted by Braqoon on Apr 25th, 2013

New release is mainly a bugfix one. Two major bugs has been squashed. One is a non QWERTY keyboard support. For every one who is not using QWERTY setup, latest game features has been not accessible. This is now fixed and you should be able to play Dark Gates on any keyboard. Second major bug was affecting Windows version only, were some tiles had wrong names which end up in game crash if tile has been selected. Lastly, in this release Windows version has been shipped with debug console. If you still experiencing game crashes, please run Dark Gates from command line and debug console  will show errors in event of sudden crash. Please report any problems to me.

When updating to 0.4.1 I strongly advise to uninstall last version and do a fresh install. To preserve your team layouts and save games please do a backup for savegame dir:

Linux: ~/desura/common/dark-gates/savegame/
Windows: C:\Program Files\Desura\commom\dark-gates\savegame
