DarQ set to haunt your dreams when it launches on Steam in August
After several years of development, DarQ finally has a release date. Here’s when it will be out, and what you can expect from the release.
DarQ has been on the indie radar for years now, but you’ll finally be able to get your hands on it in less than a month. According to developer Unfold Games, DarQ will now launch on 15th August. The release will be exclusively on PC and via Steam.
In DarQ, you control the lanky and bald protagonist Lloyd, who finds himself in a lucid dream that turns into a nightmare. In the psychological horror that follows, Lloyd must beat the nightmare by subverting its rules of physics, and also avoid enemies that are faster and stronger than him.
Have a look at the new release date trailer below:
The music-heavy game is chiefly being developed by composer Wlad Marhulets, who is handling programming, design, and music all at once. The music itself, which the game is centred around, is recorded by Budapest Symphony Orchestra. Of course, apart from the music, the game has a striking art style that reminds me of good ol’ German expressionism. It’s in line with my long-standing theory that all nightmares are actually directed by German expressionists.
A matter of note is that the game does have jump scares in it. It won’t be heavily reliant on these scares, but there’s enough to remind you that they’re there. Wouldn’t want you getting too comfortable in your nightmare now, would we?
Now that you know what the game looks like right now, also have a look at how the game looked like back when it was announced in 2015.
