Immortal Darkness: Curse of the Pale King is a dark fantasy RPG dungeon crawler, with challenging real-time tactical combat, a wide variety of spells, and a dark and brooding dungeon full of lethal enemies, sadistic traps, and mind-bending puzzles. You are Shade, an ancient and legendary vampire hunter, who has been bitten, and now struggles against the vampiric curse. You must fight your way through a twisted labyrinth of horror and death to finally face the Pale King, lord of all Vampires, before succumbing to the vampiric curse yourself.
Fools Rush In
This is a game that will challenge you to think tactically about every situation. Rushing into a room without a good plan will get you killed very quickly in most situations. Controlling the flow of any battle is critical. Enemies must be slowed, stunned, confused, poisoned, scattered, or separated and taken out a few at a time.
As a half-vampire your primary means of healing is drinking the blood of your fallen enemies, but this ability has a cost, and must be used sparingly and strategically. Each time you drink your evil meter fills up a set amount. Max out your evil meter and you will become a full vampire, dooming yourself, and what few living beings still cling to life in the ravaged world of Uuld. There are ways to reduce your build-up of evil, such as potions and holy altars, but they are few and your enemies are many.
Items are Everything
With the exception of your basic melee attack, every spell and ability you will have is based on the items you choose to equip to the 6 slots in your action bar. As you progress through the game and your pack begins to fill with dozens of items, choosing what you equip to your action slots will define everything about how you play and what you can do.
Secrets Within Secrets
Few will find every secret or unlock every puzzle in this centuries old dungeon. Evil has been at work here since ancient antiquity and there is more concealed in this place of eternal gloom than anywhere else in Uuld.
Decisions that Will Shape the Cosmos
There are many factions at play here and who you decide to ally with and who you decide to oppose has the power to dramatically reshape your story and the fate of this world, and possibly many others.
