DARQ takes you on a journey through Lloyd's dreams that quickly turn into a loop of nightmares. Each attempt to wake up sinks Lloyd deeper into his lucid, subconscious-driven dreams. Lloyd has to adapt to the new world, re-learn gravity, and stretch his mind in order to solve puzzles and sneak past the creatures guarding the corners of DARQ. Will you decipher the true meaning of Lloyd’s dreams?

The Complete Edition includes:
  • DARQ - Original Game
  • The Tower DLC - Lloyd wakes up in his dreams again only to find himself in a Tower filled with many new mysteries, puzzles, and creepy creatures
  • The Crypt DLC - Another loop of nightmares continues, introducing new mechanics and puzzles in a crypt filled with dark surprises

DARQ has a 94% positive score from users over Steam, a 70% positive score from critics over Metacritic, and collected 12 awards and nominations, including “Best Adventure Game” and “Best Game Music” at Chainsaw Festival 2020, “Best Game Award” at MIX / PAX West 2018, and “42nd most shared PC game of 2019” on Metacritic.
