Dark And Darker New Demo Is Out; Here Is What’s New In The Latest Version

Dark and Darker is a new first-person dungeon adventure where teamwork matters and the softcore need not apply. It’s a throwback to the days of Eye of the Beholder and Ultima Underworld-style of 90s PC gaming, but made for 2023.

Developer Ironmace has released a new demo in time for Steam Next Fest for this quarter. Here are the Dark and Darker February 2023 PC version alpha playtest #4 patch notes and recent hotfixes; the beta will be available until 13 February (via the official Steam page).
