Late last year, we told you about Din's Curse, an indie action/rpg. Firmly in the hallowed Diablo 2 style of gameplay, Din's Curse adds to the formula in a few intriguing ways. The standard class/skill system is tweaked to allow hybrid classes, with well over a hundred different combinations. The storyline, too, is innovative, and will vary based on the player's actions, which means no two games will play the same.
Interested? Now, you can check it out yourself. A free demo of Din's Curse is now available. Clocking in at 100 megs, it's defnitely worth a try. You can download the demo here, then come back and let us know what you think!
Dallas, Texas, March 18, 2010 - Soldak Entertainment today announced the availability of the Din's Curse demo. Din's Curse is an action RPG for Windows and Mac PCs.
Din, champion of the gods, has cursed you into a second life of service because you selfishly squandered your first one while causing misfortune to those around you. To redeem yourself, you must impress Din by building a reputation for helping others. Travel the spacious western plains of Aleria and save desperate towns from the brink of annihilation. Until you're redeemed, you're doomed to wander the earth alone for all eternity.
In Din's Curse, you will explore an extensive underground, slaying dangerous monsters, solving dynamic quests, dodging deadly traps, and in your spare time, plundering loot. Quell uprisings, flush out traitors, kill assassins, cure plagues, purge curses, end wars, and complete other dangerous quests or the danger WILL escalate. Not all is as it seems though, traitors will gladly stab you in the back, renegades can revolt against the town, spies can set up ambushes, and items might even curse or possess your friends.
