Darkest Dungeon is probably the best-animated dungeon crawl ever

I’m not kidding, this game is gorgeous. You’ll watch the trailer halfway through wondering when you’ll get to the in-game shots and come to the epiphany that these are the in-game shots. Produced by Red Hook, Darkest Dungeon is billed as an old-school roguelike, but we’ve seen many of those. The real pull here is the hand-drawn art, which is darkly shaded and reminds me of a linoleum block print, but more colorful. It’s no wonder it’s blowing away its funding target on Kickstarter. I repeat, gorgeous.
