The Moving Pixels Podcast Plumbs the Depths of the 'Darkest Dungeon'
Darkest Dungeon reveals how penalties and pain can became a source of twisted pleasure in video games.
Following a year of availability in early access, Darkest Dungeon was released on Steam in January 2016. Set in a Lovecraftian universe, the game is about twisted family lineages, unspeakable and otherworldly horrors, and the cruel psychological and physical consequences of attempting a campaign against unwinnable opposition.
This week we discuss our own sadistic and masochistic experiences in the Darkest Dungeon and how penalties and pain became a source of twisted pleasure in games like this one.
