About this game

HELP LLOYD WAKE UP!

DARQ tells the story of Lloyd, a boy who becomes aware of the fact that he is dreaming. To Lloyd's misfortune, the dream quickly turns into a nightmare and all attempts to wake up end in failure. While exploring the darkest corners of his subconscious, Lloyd learns how to survive the nightmare by bending the laws of physics and manipulating the fluid fabric of the dream world.

WALL WALK, STEALTH, PUZZLES

Apart from gravity-defying puzzles, Lloyd will have to use stealth when nearby enemies. He has no chance of winning in an open confrontation, since the creatures he will encounter are much more powerful and faster than him. Instead, he has to rely on careful planning to avoid getting detected.

FEATURES

  • Psychological horror set in a lucid dream, relying on slow build and creepy atmosphere rather than gore and violence.
  • Unique artstyle and detailed environment to explore
  • Sound design by Bjørn Jacobsen, known for his work on such games as Cyberpunk 2077 and Hitman.
  • Puzzles that involve bending the laws of physics (walking on walls and ceilings) , manipulating the dream world (moving things, rotating rooms), collecting and using found objects, and avoiding enemies.
  • Hidden secrets to find (optional, for hardcore players only)

Short and sweet creepy puzzle game. If you enjoyed puzzle games with ambiguious stories like Little Nightmares, Limbo, or Inside, you may enjoy this one as well. The DLC can be a bit confusing, but has more polished puzzles and slightly harder than the base game.

When the stakes are low, my mood is DARQ
Verified purchase
I would definitely recommend DARQ to fans of the style, or who just simply want to break their heads a little, but aren’t scared of a few lighter jump scare or morbid surroundings. The workmanship is lavish, it is very sophisticatedly crafted for each venue, and it is artistically shining about it being put together by very careful hands. It is perhaps no coincidence that the work of Unfold Games has received many awards. It also includes the two DLCs released for the original release, and extensions called Tower and Crypt take the base lineup in a rather extreme direction. I’m not writing all this out of courtesy: it brings a very surprising innovation from both game mechanics sides.
