Wot I Think – Din’s Curse: Demon War

By Quintin Smith on March 8th, 2011.

Coincidentally, Elite Pilfer Clan Leprechaun is what I call my girlfriend.

Indie action RPG Din’s Curse is often referred to by Kieron as one of the games that got away- an acclaimed, interesting indie title that RPS never found the time to review. UNTIL TODAY. Following the release of the recent expansion, I’ve been spending quite a lot of time with this beauty, and am excited to present Wot I Think.

So, you’re a hero. A tall combine harvester of a man, with a unique knack for rolling forward and crushing and scything everything in your path, and you’re on a quest to rescue a lady, kill some monstrous boss monster and save a town. This tireless plot has been the set-up for a thousand fantasy videogames.

Now, imagine if you could fail at all this. Imagine if the lady could die, the monstrous boss monster could beat a retreat, and the town relying on you could, ultimately, be laid to waste. Imagine if everything mattered. That’s Din’s Curse.

Dinner Bells – Din’s Curse: Demon War Out

Until I was 12 I pronounced dungeon 'dungy-own' and nobody stopped me :(

Din’s Curse, Torchlight’s seedier, even-more-indie counterpart when it comes to capitalising on the fact that Blizzard have decided to develop Diablo 3 using only their left hands (my personal guess), has just received an expansion. In Din’s Curse: Demon War begins with the demon city of Kravel being invaded by crazed zombies. You’d think that would be a good thing, wouldn’t you? No! No! You’d be wrong. This causes the demons to go on a retaliatory rampage which it’s up to you to stop. Expect demons, a new Demon Hunter class, lots more quests and, by the sounds of things, a more dynamic game- NPCs now interact with the world more, and there are many more “world modifiers”. Hmm. Last year’s Din’s Curse demo is still up on their site and well worth checking out, and you can buy both the game and the expansion here with a 30 day money-back guarantee. Some guy’s footage of Din’s Curse follows. Is it any more professional if I tell you his name is viper34j2004? Probably not.
