Ask anyone who is playing Darkest Dungeon’s [official site] bloodthirsty expansion The Crimson Court how they feel, and they’ll probably smile nervously and then collapse in a pale heap of quivering flesh. At least, that’s now I’d respond, and Fraser isn’t far off a total collapse judging by his review. It’s a top notch addition, running alongside the main campaign and delivering wonderfully grotesque insectile vampires, but it’s also really hard.
That’s kind of the point, given that this is Darkest Dungeon rather than Brightest Ballroom, but Crimson Court’s new curse often feels like a burden rather than an interesting new feature. Thankfully, as well as announcing a stonking 175,000 copies sold, Red Hook say changes are a-coming.
