Welcome to Checkmark Games. It has been nearly a year since I started working on Dark Delve, and I can finally see the end in sight. Dark Delve is a throwback game of the likes of Wizardry, Bards Tale, and Might and Magic, games I loved as a kid, and continue to enjoy as an adult.
Create a party of adventurers and explore the lost halls of the cursed queen. Along the way you will find traps, secret doors, treasures, and all manner of foul beasts that stand in your way. Encounters and treasure are placed randomly when a new game is begun, such that no two games will be the same. Multiple difficulty options allow for a challenge for veterans, while staying fun for kids of all ages (my 8 year old son has been my enthusiastic tester to ensure the later).
I will be sharing more details regarding character customization, the various game systems, and perhaps one of the unique boss fight challenges that await you over the coming weeks on this blog.
Until then, sharpen your sword, study your spellbook, Dark Delve will be making its way onto XBLIG this summer!
