DFour Games is a little independent game developer studio based in Sheffield, UK. Main target platforms are Linux, Mac & Windows. Studio started in 2010 by Bartosz Debski and the first project is Dark Gates.


Free comic book, permanent price drop & Desura.

Bag of MoneyIt's summer and I got some announcements to make. First one is that from now on comic book is available for everyone regardless do you own the game or not. Now you can download both English and Polish version from story page of Dark Gates website (click here). Enjoy !

Another big announcement is a permanent price drop across all the stores that Dark Gates is sold. Enjoy the new price which is 60% less than original starting price. Steam summer sale is over but new price is here to stay.

Many of you might heard about Desura. As the matter is still not resolved with the future of this platform, please do not purchase copies of Dark Gates or any game for that matter there as developers unlikely will see any money which has not yet been paid out. I have switched widget on Dark Gates page to IndieGameStand which also offers DRM free copy of the game, Gamers Gate also have DRM free packages. Please reedem all unused keys from Desura if you have them.

Dark Gates - Release 1.1

Release 1.1 is out and as promised, Dark Gates are now fully translated to Spanish. Apart from this there are few changes in the game that should make game more fluent.


First of them is a skull indicator for spells. If you select a hero to cast a spell and spell might kill him/her while doing so, there is a skull displayed near the spell icon. Also now, if spell cannot be used as it will cost more then a life of one who cast it, it will be greyed out.

Another change is in fight system. As one of the players pointed it out, there is lots of key presses when you fighting. This release makes it easier. If a hero have only one choice in which weapon can be used or there is only one monster to attach, selection will be automatic. This shortens the sequence and hopefully will make fight quicker.

If hero have more than one weapon to use (including magic), player will have to still select which option to go for. Same for more than one monster.

If you prefer to make all choices by yourself then you can do so by adding 'autoselect = 0' in settings.cfg


I'm happy to announce that Dark Gates are now available on IndieGameStand. Below you have a handy widget and shortly game will be visible in store.

Steam release and more

Steam LogoSteam Release - It's available now !

On 13th of October 2013, Dark Gates has been greenlit for a release on Steam. After finally releasing version 1.0, now is the time that I have caught up with Steam as well. Steam version supports achievements, cards and cloud saves. I have to point out that if you still running a pure Linux 32bit system, achievements are not included (long story) but rest does.

Those who bought game directly or on Desura, Indie Royale, Daily Royale or Gamers Gate will receive Steam keys as soon this will be possible. Since 1.0 release a new bug has been found and Steam version is already patched but others are still pending. This is not a big one and will only affect players who found a Fear spell. If you did them don't try to use it :)
