Looking for a new tabletop-inspired roguelike adventure? Look no further than Dark Quest III! Check out the full breakdown below, and the trailer above for some action-packed gameplay!

Heed my warning well, friends. A new evil has risen in the East. A power-hungry sorcerer of chaos magic is laying siege to the realm. That is why I called you here. You are heroes, one and all. And without you, all hope is lost. You will face untold challenges you may not survive, and old alliances will need to be rebuilt to stand a chance. I will guide you as best I can, but the rest is up to you.

Long, long ago, a young boy discovered an immensely powerful book of magic. Unlocking its power piece by piece, his curiosity soon turned to obsession.Simply studying the tome wasn’t enough. Before long, he used his findings to bring the very world to life. Trees, flowers, and mushrooms sprouted legs and maws, yearning for fresh meat. Wild animals were melded with humans and thrown into his labyrinth. The dead arose from the long-forgotten ruins. And in the city corrupted by gold, his tongue poisoned the king’s ear.

His obsession finally led to a tear in the veil - a portal to another place where untold horrors lurk. Now, they enter our world in droves, razing villages to the ground.

These unimaginable events have brought together heroes from across the realm. Heroes like you. From this camp, we will push these creatures back to the beyond and defeat this irredeemable sorcerer.

Work your way through deck after deck of dungeon encounters, roll checks to get through deadly obstacles, and face down foes in fast-paced strategic combat. Each run can bring fearsome new foes to fight, powerful new allies to enlist, and cunning new tools & tactics to employ as you try to conquer each deck and eventually stop the power hungry sorcerer who’s laying siege to the realm.

You start the game at hero camp where you must create your party and then go on journey throughout the world by choosing different areas. Choose each area based on your party’s strengths and weakness, draw adventure cards, roll dice, fight monsters and reach the chaos castle to defeat the sorcerer and his magic.
