The combat-focused simple turn-based RPG 'Dark Bestiary' is up on Steam

By - | Views: 7,070

If you're a big fan of turn-based combat, looting and creating a character from tons of varied skills then Dark Bestiary is a game you might find quite interesting. Note: The developer provided a key to our Steam Curator.

Currently, the game is quite simple as it's still unfinished. However, like a lot of Early Access titles it seems to have a lot of promise ready to shine through. Dark Bestiary is all about the combat, with you building up a powerful character to take on various enemies across the lands and that's pretty much it.

It's quite a repetitive game. Grinding is in its nature, it's a series of endless battles which you repeat to gain better skills and equipment and then move onto another area. Something big it does need to work on is the setup. Currently, you make a character and then it dumps you right into combat with no introduction or direction at all. I get that it's combat focused but it felt quite blunt in the presentation because of that.

Outside of the combat you're given a town that's a fair bit like Darkest Dungeon, with various buildings to interact with before you choose your next combat location. It's from here you build up your character, do a little crafting, trading and so on.

While the combat systems and various skills available are quite varied, it needs to give you more of a purpose. It currently feels a bit empty. However, if character building and turn-based combat is what you're after it might be worth your money. For me, it needs a little boost in narrative, direction and purpose for being before I can properly recommend it.

Entering Early Access back in July, the developer estimated remaining there for around six months at least. You can find Dark Bestiary on Steam in Early Access.
