An abusive relationship.
You hate it sometimes,
but you keep coming back.

Review from Steam

It's a hard, skill based game with a bit of RNG, you'll like it if you're into tactical turn based games with dark fantasy Lovecraftian setting.
PROS
- Great narrator
- Lots of enemies, different maps with a variation of everything from scenery, interactibles, to dungeon music
- Bosses - each location has its own set of bosses with mechanics for all of them, they're not just reskinned and copy-pasted bullet sponges. There's also a few hidden optional bosses and minibosses that may appear in the dungeon if you fullfill certain conditions, even the ones that you'd not expect to actually matter...
- Amazing DLC's that expand the game and add new mechanics, items, enemies, locations, so on...
- Random events each ''week'' (so after you finish a game in a dungeon) that can influence the gameplay by e.g. blocking an activity or making committing to a certain thing more lucrative in the long run.
- Classes - in the base game there are 16 classes, each with unique skills and specific roles for them, there are 2 additional classes that come with/as DLC and they fill their own niche quite nicely and aren't a copy pasted reskin
- Steam workshop - there's a lot of dedicated artists and talented modders working on this game and creating amazing content, keep in mind that most of it was made by horny bastards and if you take a look at the workshop page you'll know what I mean...
CONS
- I read a book and got syphilis
- I had a character suffer a mental breakdown in the dungeon from stress, to help him with it I've sent him to a brothel for some fun, f#cker went on a shag#ng spree for 3 weeks and refused to do anything else

Review from Steam

Put the torch on the eldritch alter for infinite money.

Review from Steam

This game will teach you 3 things:
Patience; what it truly feels like to lose an old companion for good; and - most importantly - THAT OVERCONFIDENCE IS A SLOW AND INSIDIOUS KILLER.

Review from Steam

Don't really like the fact that you instantly win the game when you put the torch in the red altar, due to the ridiculous loot it gives you. Other than that great game.
