Darkstone, a classic hack-and-slash that introduced 3D graphics into the genre, will have you hacking through hordes of horrors with a 60% discount for the next 24 hours.
If your name is Lord Draak and you wield the power to transform yourself into a giant dragon, becoming an evil overlord seems like an obvious career choice. And when, by some strange and totally unexpected twist of fate, you end up deprived of your magic, banished from the realm, and nearly killed, you have no other option but to gather back your minions and devise a new evil plot to terrorize the land and rebuild your dark domain. Right? RIGHT?! Well, tough luck, Lord Draak--Darkstone isn’t about you. It’s about the valiant heroes that are coming to get you.
In Darkstone a party of up to four adventurers set off on a quest to free the realm of Uma of its oppressor. In the co-op multi-player mode each player controls one of them. In single-player you can switch between two characters and the computer will assume the role of the one you’re currently not handling. There are four provinces to explore, each with its own set of quest-filled, procedurally-generated dungeons to keep you busy and boost the game’s replay value.
13 years after its release, Darkstone remains one of the most memorable titles of the hack-and-slash genre! Start dungeon crawling now, for only $2.39 until Thursday, July 26 at 10:59 AM GMT.
