3 Minute Read
Apr 18 2018

Venture into the world of Intermundis where the Grim Warden has forced you to fight through demon filled halls of misery and death.

Darklight: Memento Mori is a cooperative dungeon crawler with action point allotment, equipment and random events set in a dark Gothic environment.

Each player in Darklight takes the role of one of the four Accursed. The Accursed must fight through randomly generated dungeons battling monsters and demons and harvesting their souls. Each of the Accursed (Black Knight, the Exorcist, the Outcast and the Blood Witch) each come with unique skills and abilities.


Throughout the game, players will keep track of the treasure and equipment gained on their player board.

As the Accursed travel through the dungeons they will encounter horrific monsters. These monsters all have special abilities and varying difficulties keeping combat interesting each encounter.

The Accursed can gain new equipment and upgrades at the Marketplace or Blacksmith.  The players will also be able to customize their Accursed through new abilities gained through leveling up.


Darklight: Memento Mori is a maturely themed and dark. It takes inspiration from games like Diablo, Dark Souls and Bloodborne. The game comes with several dozen miniatures which highlight the grotesque demons the Accursed will battle.

The game is designed to be randomly generated and with more than 300 cards for abilities, equipment and encounters there is no shortage of replayability within Darklight.
