    Well gonna pirate it until steam release, but given Epic game store UI and 0 contact between community and devs this game can turn into a shit show.

    That trailer has me wondering even more than I already was if whoever was posting Darkest Dungeon 3D models on YouTube on the DanteFDV channel two and three years is working on this game.



    Seems weird this teaser looks more like normal Darkest Dungeon (at least setting wise) but in 3D; where the teaser last year looked like some Arctic things, and in a interview after the trailer came out they said the meta game would have a completely different structure that played into how the new game is about enduring a grueling journey. Has me wondering if this Early Access version is just testing out changes they said they made to combat? Although on the actual YouTube video in the description it seems to make reference to that new meta game they brought up in a interview a year ago. Still, this glimpse of the Early Access version (which at least in the trailer just calls it Darkest Dungeon) looks more like it was made to be a 3D version of the original game than the stuff they teased.

    So it's 3d this time, wonder if that affects gameplay or is just so people don't complain that it's too much like the frist one.

    I'm pretty hyped for this. Darkest Dungeon was probably one of my favorite kickstarter era games. It had no bullshit story or shit romance. It was a constant grind of you chopping down creatures.

    Can't wait!

    Someone needs to alert Twitter. This is disgusting.

    Or maybe Dark = Good? Darkest = Bestest? I dunno, its quite confusing really.

    Being EGS exclusive means you can pirate it and there isn't even a moral argument against it because the dev already got paid.

    First they came for The Outer Worlds
    And I did not speak out
    Because Obsidian rushed Fallout: New Vegas

    Then they came for Fortnite on the Apple Store
    And I did not speak out
    Because I wasn't cringe

    Then they came for Darkest Dungeon 2
    And there was no gamer left
    To speak out for me

    Hmm, i really dont know what to think about going 3d...
    Maybe they are going to add random personalities and relations between characters, i remember that they planned it for DD 1 but then abandoned this idea.

    Even if they have mod support, the 3D will make the creation of new characters a lot harder.

    I mean when EGS is using Tencent money to fork over probably hundreds thousand or a million+ dollars then why not?

    And if you look at the popular EGS timed exclusive on Steam (BL3, Hades, METRO) the people who are Steam exclusive will buy your game anyway so you are not losing customer per se. There are some people who are very loud about boycotting EGS timed exclusive but here is a thing: for less popular games, being EGS exclusive probably pay more than actually selling your game. Aand if you are popular enough, people will still buy your game later when it launched on Steam anyway.

    It really depends on how much money EGS is forking but from the look of it there is 0 disadvantage of actually doing this.

    I think there was something that if you used the unreal engine asset store, it'd be cheaper when selling the game on EGS, but I couldn't find a reference for that

    Store exclusive EA games. This is getting more and more ridiculous.

    For roguelikes especially doesn't exclusivity hurt the games especially as a lot tend to shape up and change by player feed back?

    This will reduce your player base to a fraction of what it should have been while on epic.
