Early Excess: Quinns Revisits Darkest Dungeon

Let's Play

Hey! It's a new and sporadic video series from Quintin Smith called Early Excess, re-visiting Early Access games to see what they are, how development has progressed, and whether they're any good.

First up: 50 minutes of Darkest Dungeon [official site], a fantasy RPG in which you're managing your squad's mental state as much as their stats and inventory.
