Darkest Valley is a fast-paced RPG adventure where you slay monsters, loot, and learn new skills on your adventure through a dark fantasy world. The game is an homage to the many great 2D action RPGs from the last twenty years. The original soundtrack, the visual style, and the story is a meld of our favorite elements from the classic and unforgettable titles in this genre. Relive those experiences in this modern indie creation.


Starting in March of 2020, the small team of three began work on the Darkest Valley prototype. The goal was to emulate a Diablo 2 style of gameplay, with the graphical charm of Legend of Mana. With two artists and one programmer, they began to craft the whimsical forest - the entry point into the game and the evolving home base. There, the unnamed main character is only ever addressed with a fond nickname by one affectionate acquaintance: Sweetie. The team is developing the game for an early access release in 2021, and is not letting 2020 get in their way!

  • Comedic stories with a society of cute and sometimes third-wall breaking characters.

  • A nostalgic visual style with hand painted environments and enemies.
  • 8 craftable item types: weapons, armor, helms, boots, gloves, amulets, rings, and belts.
