Draft of Darkness takes place in a post apocalyptic city plagued by darkness. The player will venturing through the procedurally generated and interconnected maps. So you’ll need to manage your party and resources. All while surviving against ghastly infected creatures. What’s amazing, the reviews on Steam are all positive.

  • Is the darkness better as a group? – Find friends and foes lurking deep within the darkness. Manage the status of your party, avoid radiation and infection at all costs!
  • Every death brings rewards – At the end of every run, you will receive credits that can open booster packs to unlock new starting cards. Every death is a chance to find new strategies!
  • Be careful what you ask for – Draft of Darkness has a unique “meta-story progression” system, every decision can alter the outcome of the story and allow for new ways to progress. Different choices are available in each run but be careful, some will have serious outcomes.
